Will re-open

2 Apr, 2015

Appearing on Cavuto, O’Connor says the store will re-open soon:

We have decided that we will re-open again. I’m still shaken about — over this and I’ll be the one that’s serving the customers and answering phones. And I’m not ready to face that yet. But it will be soon.

She also clarifies that gay people are welcome in the store:

Anyone is welcome in the store, it’s against our belief — to cater to their wedding. We’re condoning that if we do that, and that is against our religion, it’s not at all hateful, we show no hatred towards them, we just — we ask that they respect, as we have to allow the way they believe, we just ask that they respect the way we believe…we have to accept them [gay people], and we just ask that they accept us.

About the detractors:

All you can do is pray for them, and truly, we’re not really angry at them. We’re sad for them.
