More than $800,000 has been raised online for a Christian pizzeria owner from Indiana who was forced to shutter her shop after being attacked by LGBT advocates for saying she would not provide catering services for a gay wedding and she says the money is God’s way of blessing her for “standing up.”
Crystal O’Connor, owner of Memories Pizza in Walkerton, who told a local news reporter that her shop would not cater gay weddings, reiterated her opposition to the idea citing her Christian faith in an interview with the FOX Business Network Friday despite vitriolic threats against her and her business from LGBT advocates.
“It is not a sin that we bring gays into our establishment, and to serve them. It is a sin, though, if we condone,” she said. “If we cater their wedding. We feel we are participating, we are putting a stamp of approval on their wedding, and we cannot do that.”
Gay advocates who learned of O’Connor’s comments after they were infused into the controversy over Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act signed into law by Republican Governor Mike Pence two Thursdays ago, despite them being made prior to the law becoming effective. Click Link Below for More.
