    Don't misinterpret. In the link the owners are quoted as saying that all are welcome but that they won't cater weddings.

    So you wouldn't say the same exact things if that pizzeria were in say....New York? Come now, we both know darn well that you would be saying the same thing. Whether or not this pizzeria actually does do weddings or not, or what size the town is doesn't matter in the slightest to you. So you can stop trying to make this about this one single company in order to backtrack.

    Boycotting them is your right. But that is not what you have done in this thread. All you've done in this thread is promote discrimination against people that don't share your beliefs.

    As for the sign bit, nope I wouldn't. That is what boycotting is. Not giving my service to someone. Complete opposite of what you're doing.

    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.
    This situation brings to mind one of Publilius Syrus' Maxims from the first century B.C.: "I have often regretted my speech, never my silence." There was no compelling need whatsoever for the pizzeria's owner to inject herself into a civil rights matter in the fashion she did, much less over an extremely low probability scenario. Now, at least for the time being, the pizzeria is closed, the reputation of its owner is damaged, and it has perhaps lost a number of customers regardless of whether it reopens.

    Spare me your hyperbolic comments.

    Stick to spewing your garbage about what you think you know, not want you want to believe.

    Try Googling that instead.
    So when shown that you were wrong you resort to an ad hom instead of admitting that you were wrong. Gotcha.

    Do you know why they're closed?

    You didn't show a damn thing.

    In my experience, I was absolutely right.

    What tolerance are you suggesting?

    Are you suggesting peopled should let others illegally discriminate, break the law and or violate the rights of others ?

    what other things would you suggest this for?
    not hiring or promoting women simply because they are women?
    vandalism?
    assault?
    rape?
    theft?

    should people that believe in equal rights and civility tolerate those things too?

    So your experience is everything that happens in the world? That is what you're implying with a post such as this and your previous posts. I've shown your statement "The words 'pizza' and 'catering' are mutually exclusive." to be absolutely wrong and your experience "I have never heard of anybody having a wedding catered with pizza." to be seriously lacking. And yet you continue to double down on it. Not surprised I guess.

    I think when they open back up they'll get a big boost in business. You're right, there was no need for this place to inject themselves into this matter, except, imo for publicity. They admitted they never even been asked to cater a wedding, and pizza isn't the choice at weddings anyway. Well they open back up they'll be famous, and busy.

    I think this was a calculated move by them for publicity. And now there's $50,000 in donations for them too? They'll probably take the 50k, take a nice expensive vacation, then open back up.
