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.
