    Read the article here: Indiana's 'No Gay Wedding' Pizzeria Has Closed

    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.
    Apparently freedom of religion now includes the right to decline to serve pizzas to people you don't like. Bet Jefferson never thought of that one.

    sure.. sure.. it must be a simple coincidence that so many lefties came up with the same talking point in such a short time... yup... coincidence.

    I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. Right now it looks like not selling pizzas to gay weddings is working out pretty good for them.

    $200 thousand from GoFundMe is nothing to sneeze at, eh?

    I must be an idiot (I know I am from time to time but no need to agree with me, I know some people see me in that manner ) but why on earth would someone not want to sell a pizza to a gay person just because they got married?

    Just because the religious right have claimed sole custody to the process of marriage is wrong. Just split it up to a civil union that is the "real marriage" and a seperate religious one that is open only to members of that religion and for which that religion has the sole right to decide who they marry and who not.

    That would make it be possible for gays to marry and for religious organizations to decide who they marry and who not. Problem solved IMHO.

    What gives someone a religious right to not sell food to someone? They are not approving of the life style of others just because they sell pizza's to a gay wedding ceremony IMHO. Sorry, but I do not see the problem in selling a pizza to someone who is gay, black, white, muslim, jewish, christian or whatever. Because if you have a pizzeria what is the problem with selling them to anyone who needs one and wants to pay? What does a person have to do in order to order a pizza? Do they ask

    I would sell pizza to everyone who needed one, even if that person was a mormon or for crying out loud a scientologist. Pizza sales do not make you approve of someone's life style, religion or points of view. You are doing your job (but I still reserve the right never to watch/pay for a movie starring Tom Cruise but if he came to order a pizza I would even sell him one) when you are a pizza owning kind of a person you do what is necessary for the prosperity of you, your staff and your loved ones.

    Sorry, but I am intolerant of intolerance when it comes to discrimination. I would hever discriminate someone religious and that is how it should be, why would religious people be allowed to then to that to other? Respect and love other like you love yourself is what religious should be about.

    It's not about the people. They said they would never and have never refused to serve anyone who is gay or of a different religion. It's when they were asked to participate in what they believe is a sinful act. They cannot participate in good conscience. They aren't hurting anyone, they aren't discriminating against people --- it's the act of participating in an event that goes against their beliefs that bothers them.

    Yeah, but then again Jefferson had a black slave girl he took to bed every night.

    It's mostly about revenge because the social conservatives and religious right lost the gay marriage war. So this is their little temper tantrum.
