Owners Of Memories Pizza Plan To Share Their Newfound Fortune

In a recent post about the small Indiana pizza shop that came under fire for the owners’ stand against catering a hypothetical gay wedding, Western Journalism told you about the amazing amount of money supporters donated to provide financial relief after bitter controversy and threats forced the family-owned restaurant to close.

Memories Pizza, run by Kevin O’Connor and his daughter Crystal in the tiny town of Walkerton, Ind., plans to re-open on Wednesday. The O’Connors say they’re incredibly grateful for all the encouragement from friends and customers, and for the more than $842,000 that some 30,000 well-wishers donated through a GoFundMe campaign. Individuals associated with The Blaze set up the fundraising effort.

In a report that first appeared in The Daily Mail, Mr. O’Connor says that as much as his little pizza parlor could use all that money — he explains that Memories sells “a little over 100 pizzas a week” — he and his daughter plan to share their newfound wealth.

“They revealed they are set to share their new fortune with disabled children, a women’s help group, firefighters, police trusts, Christian churches, and Washington florist Barronelle Stutzman, 70, who was fined after declaring she would not serve a gay wedding.”

You may recall that the elderly florist was slapped with a $1,000 fine last month after she declined to sell flowers for the 2013 wedding of longtime gay customers. A judge ruled that Stutzman, a Christian with deeply-held religious beliefs, violated the Washington state law against discrimination.

As for his religious beliefs and how they may have been influenced by the furor over his pizza parlor’s backing of Indiana’s recently enacted Religious Freedom Restoration Act, Kevin O’Connor tells The Daily Mail he still feels the same about not supporting a gay marriage celebration.

Generally, generalizations

That's great, but they better keep enough on hand to set themselves up.
Because from a business standpoint they are ruined. They aren't going to be able to reopen that business without becoming an even bigger target than before.

I hope that if there are more outcries of hate, threats of violence or any acts of violence against these Christian business owners that the news reports it.  The idiocy of attacking/threatening people because of their religious beliefs has to stop.  Our nation was built on religious freedom.

Greg, why are you being so disingenuous here, or purposely obtuse?

This obviously had to do with people wanting to help this pizzeria.

If it was about no more than "begging" why should anyone care about these people?

A.  I think it's a GREAT idea and I've said so on multiple occasions.

B.  I wish I had thought of it (as I've also said on multiple occasions).

The problem with you Greg, is that you are only partisan.

You have the intelligence to be otherwise, but yet in my entire time here I have never seen you post anything that is not partisan.

A partisan can never be completely intellectually honest, as reality does not neatly accord with either democratic or republican views.
