Suddenly-Rich Indiana Pizzeria Owner: God ‘Has Blessed Us’ For Standing Up
God is responsible for the owners of an anti-gay pizza joint gaining more than $800,000 from others who support their decision to not serve gay events. Or so claim the establishment’s owners.
“God has blessed us for standing up for what we believe, and not denying him,” Crystal told [Neil] Cavuto.
Additionally, a local choir called Ripple Effect set up camp across the street from Memories in an attempt to bring the community together again.
“We’re not here to condemn or condone the owners of the establishment. We’re here to show them and the community that we can show love to people in spite of our differences,” choir direct Sherry Klinedinst told Indiana news station WSBT 22.
Support may be pouring in on a local level, but on a larger scale there’s still quite a bit of outrage over the O’Connors’ statements. On Sirius XM, Rosie O’Donnell, a former co-host on “The View,” joked that pizza joints aren’t often called upon to cater gay weddings anyway.
“Remember that they were saying that, the pizza lady, that gays were going to cater their weddings with pizza,” she said. “Not even lesbians would do that. We might do a potluck. We might make some chili, you know, if situations are tough.”
