Won’t cater pizza to gay weddings

1 Apr, 2015

Memories Pizza, in Walkerton, Indiana, says it will not cater gay weddings. The store, run by the O’Connor family for nine years, says they would not discriminate against a gay couple or a couple belonging to another religion who came to the restaurant to eat, but that they don’t agree with gay marriages and wouldn’t cater them if asked to. Crystal O’Connor:

If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no. We are a Christian establishment. We’re not discriminating against anyone, that’s just our belief and anyone has the right to believe in anything.

On the bill:

We definitely agree with the bill. I do not think it’s targeting gays. I don’t think it’s discrimination. It’s supposed to help people that have a religious belief.

Kevin O’Connor:

That lifestyle is something they choose. I choose to be heterosexual. They choose to be homosexual. Why should I be beat over the head to go along with something they choose?
