The northern Indiana pizza parlor that got online threats after one of its owners said the restaurant would refuse to cater a same-sex wedding if asked, is now getting some support. Over 18,000 people have donated more than $500,000 to Memories Pizza in the small town of Walkerton, Indiana near South Bend and Mishawaka. The donations started pouring in on a GoFundMe account after a local news station reported the pizza place would have to close because of the backlash, including a threat to burn down the business. The Christian owners of the small business were particularly moved a by a $20 donation from a gay couple that supported the owners’ right to express their beliefs. The owners of the business said they had no problem with gay people and would serve them in the restaurant but that they didn’t support gay marriage. Voicing their sentiments entered them into the fray of controversy over Indiana’s version of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.  For more, click HERE.
