    In 18 years in a similar sized town, there was never a single visit from the media. The timing of everything that followed is too suspect also

    He has probably made more off of this martyr card than he has done in business for the last 5 years.


    Correct. It would take quite a while to make $200,000 clear profit in that small town.

    We need to check and see how they're doing after the U.S. Supreme Court rules on gay marriage.

    It's rather ironic that the people bemoaning 'tolerance' have become the most visible hate group in America.

    I started a search then thought better of it - no telling what kind of ads Google would direct my way.....



    It's a club. They can do that. I doubt the Tea Party caucus allows liberals to attend their meetings.
    Yep. People engage in all forms of discrimination. I think the group has talked about that in the past.

    So go blame the majority in Congress. Hmm, I wonder who has the majority in Congress
    Blame them? Nope...I celebrate it. Good for them. Just pointing out how regularly sanctioned discrimination occurs. Of course...it's always 'different'.

    I'm going to guess a Muslim shop wouldn't cater a gay wedding either. I'm going to keep guessing that that would be perfectly fine to people who are calling Memories Pizza hateful.

    It's a possibility, I suppose... but there's been no evidence of such collusion.

    it's a bit odd that so many lefties started bringing up this theory .. nearly in unison.
    that's usually indicative of talking points being thrown out by some ideologically bent outlet.

    And ships are weird anyway - they're all flagged with foreign countries so I'm not sure what laws apply to them.
    Once the ships is 12 miles off the coast of the US, US laws do not apply. The casinos open up. On some cruise lines 18 YO can drink. Etc.

    Perhaps to send a clear message to the bitter angry hate filled intolerant gaystapo that they are tired of their bull****. Sort of like the Chik-Fil-A response.
