I doubt that they thought all this with the blaze and this fund would happen, but they could have very easily started it for a little local publicity.
    They definitely contacted the media. No news crew just happens to stumble upon unlisted mom and pops in shanty towns and ask "Hey would you cater to a gay wedding?"

    They're no victims

    Much easier to defend oneself at home than at a open place of business. Duh.

    So news crews don't go out looking for stories?

    I am sure you can agree that is not the rule with women. Your wife is an exception.

    They're afraid for their lives but then they go on the blaze and tell the world hey we're home 24/7 now, basically saying we're here, at home, come and get us. LOL Sounds fishy. But hey, good for them. If people want to give them money for something like this? Amen.
    Love it ! The lefts resorting to Conspiracy theories because they just can't stand the fact that bigoted hateful intolerant LGBT activist were not successful in ruining these people's lives.

    Love it ! Attacking this innocent family while you ignore the scum that threatened their lives and their business.

    Its a fantastic stategy that will work wonders for a ideology thats already predisposed to profound ethical lapses.

    Agreed. But if you are afraid for your safety you DON'T broadcast your where abouts, whether it's at home or at work!

    And now they know the town supports them and they have police investigating which makes it safer to open back up. I'm sure there are plenty of liberals proud of what they put these good folks through, even though liberalism failed this time

    How do you KNOW this person who threatened them was a liberal? Lot's of conservatives nowadays are fine with gays. Over 60% of Republicans under 30 favor gay marriage. Do you have that little faith in conservatives that you believe every single con agrees with these people stance not to cater gay weddings?

    Personally I don't care if whoever threatened them is con or lib. They should be jailed for making the threat. But it is weird how many conservatives here believe every single conservative agrees with these people's hatred and bigotry towards gays.
