Memories Pizza in Walkerton, IN

memories-pizzaA small town Indiana pizzeria has experienced a dramatic reversal of fortune just days after shutting its doors in the face of condemnation and threats. The owners of Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana came under attack after answering a question from a television reporter in which one family member said they would refuse for religious reasons to cater a hypothetical gay wedding.

$842,387 was raised in two days for the owners, according to the Washington Times. The “Support Memories Pizza” page on GoFundMe.com closed for donations Friday evening following a 48-hour fundraising campaign that took in contributions from 29,160 people.

Kudos for the nearly 30,000 who gave over $840,000 to the Christian family owners of Memories Pizza in Indiana after a virtual lynch mob of ostensible opponents of discrimination’ forced the business to close after a family member, when ambushed by a reporter, dared to say they would not cater a same-sex ritual.

Hopefully the owners of Memories Pizza will now take a well-deserved vacation before, we pray, reopening their business.

The governor of Indiana should visit a reopened Memories Pizza to show that his state is pro-religious freedom, pro-free speech, and pro-small family owned business.

Future lynch mobs will target more Christian owned businesses for their refusal to defy secular group think. The Body of Christ in America, with all persons who favor free speech, will need to rally to their defense, if America is to remain the land of the free and the home of the brave.
