    What makes me wonder if this was a stunt is because the owners specially mention they won't carter ' gay weddings', then go on to say they never even catered a wedding. Why even mention something that doesn't affect them?
    Depends if the news crew showed up looking for a business, any business, to say "sure I won't cater to gays", of if they called the news station to come out and film them saying "I won't cater to gays".

    Business rule #1: If a news crew shows up for anything more than a puff piece, show them the door.

    I don't claim to be an expert on this, but how many gay weddings are followed up by pizza parties?

    My guess is that these people are declining to serve people who would never be their customers.
    I must see, if I can get a friend who wants to marry to do that. It is so counterpoint to the way he lives, it might just feel exciting.

    And you can associate me with whoever you want to. That is your prerogative. Won't make it true though.
    Nah i've been around bigots long enough to know, and the polls back this up - opposition to SSM is roughly identical to opposition to ALL gay rights including consensual sex

    They are just lying about where'd they draw the line. They come from a position of hate period

    The words 'pizza' and 'catering' are mutually exclusive.

    It was a pathetic attempt by moronic pizza shop owners to pander to Christians to increase their business, which blew up in their face.

    I'll bet that they even set up their own GoFundMe page, or had a friend do it.

    Lying, hypocritical morons.
    Or they were just preemptively professing their faith.

    Regardless their reasoning, do they deserve the fascist death threats and maligning?

    I sense a bit of hate come from your direction.

    Like I said, hypocrisy disguised as Christianity.



    I was being sarcastic. I found the death threats they were getting to be the hypocrisy of the PC "tolerant" crowds intolerance. they said they'd serve everyone, just didn't think it would be right for them to cater a gay event.

    And for that, they have been run out of business, due to threats of violence. I


    Is this how we should be conducting ourselves? For example, I wouldn't go there because I disagree with thier stance. but I would not threaten them with violence and find that as abhorrent as anything this pizza place said.

    In fact, I'd more likely boycott many of those yelp users businesses as well, than worry about this particular pizza place.

    I didn't say it that is the definition of the word tolerance. so if you have a problem with the word tolerance then you need to take it up with people that write the dictionary not me.

    Tolerance - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary
    willingness to accept feelings, habits, or beliefs that are different from your own

    the fact that you have been misusing the word in order to try and claim some moral high ground in a discussion is not my problem.
    the fact is if you are only tolerant of people that believe like you do then you are not tolerant at all.
