The small town Indiana pizzeria that closed after its owners expressed support for the state’s religious freedom law is again open for business.
Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn.
Memories Pizza owner Kevin O’Connor said that within an hour of opening, all eight tables were filled and six people were waiting for carryout orders.
“It’s a relief to get going again and try to get back to normal,” he said.
“We couldn’t wait to get down here,” Ken Gumm, a tank truck driver, said. “To us this whole thing isn’t about gay marriage. It’s mostly about freedom of religion.”
O’Connor closed down the pizzeria after he and his daughter Crystal received threats for saying they would serve gay customers, but wouldn’t cater a same-sex wedding because it would conflict with their Christian beliefs.
Supporters launched a GoFundMe website where people could financially help the owners. It raised more than $800,000.
“I’d do the same thing again. It’s my belief. It’s our belief. It’s what we grew up on,” O’Connor said. “I’m just sorry it comes to this because neither one of us dislike any of those people. I don’t hold any grudges.”
O’Connor said he’ll use some of his share to make improvements to the pizzeria. He also plans to donate to charity.
