That’s a Big ‘If’

Alyssa Marino, reporting for Indiana’s ABC 57 News:

A small-town pizza shop is saying they agree with Governor Pence and the signing of the controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act. The O’Connor family, who owns Memories Pizza, says they have a right to believe in their religion and protect those ideals.

“If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no,” says Crystal O’Connor of Memories Pizza.

I don’t mean to make light of a serious issue, because if there are bigots like this who own a pizza joint, there are bigots like this who own a florist shop or catering business. But. Just how many gay couples are coming in asking to have a pizza party wedding? I’m guessing this is not an actual problem for Memories Pizza.

And what the hell kind of a name for a pizza joint is “Memories Pizza”? What kind of memories are they talking about? Memories of when they lived in a city where you could actually get good pizza?

(Their Yelp page is something.)

Update: People do have pizza served at their weddings.
