Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana made national headlines when they became the first business to publicly agree with Indiana Governor Mike Pence and his controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act — and to refuse catering service to same-sex weddings.

Well, it didn't take long before the pizzeria was inundated with threatening phone calls and social media posts.

So much in fact, that the pizza establishment has had to temporarily shut down.

The O'Connor family, who own Memories Pizza, say they aren't opening up their doors anytime soon until the phone calls and such become a lot less scary.

Though we obviously do not agree with their stance against same-sex rights, we can't condone threats of violence.

No matter how ignorant or discriminatory we may find their practices, we hope in the future that people will be smart and boycott and vote with their dollars — instead of with threats.

Washington Bans Government-Funded Trips To Indiana As Arkansas Copies That Anti-Gay Religious Freedom Bill — At Least One State Hasn't Lost Its Mind

We really hope Indiana ends up losing some tourism income over this.

We told you about how Governor Mike Pence, pictured above, passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act that would allow businesses to discriminate against people on the basis of faith, which was clearly targeting the LGBT community.

Well, it seems like Arkansas didn't like that Indiana was getting all of the publicity, because they went ahead and passed a similar bill on Tuesday.

Luckily, not every law maker wants to limit their citizens' rights, because the Mayor of Seattle and Governor of Washington made a move of their own!
