    Is it cynical of me to wonder if the goal from the very beginning was money?
    I would believe that if the owners asked for the interview, tweeted the violent threat themselves and set up the donation site on their own.

    Now while people jumped to donate money to a pizza business that really only managed to piss off fanatics and zealots in the gay rights movement let us consider what they did not donate that money towards...

    Children starving in Africa.
    Cancer research.
    Displaced refuges from war torn countries.

    Glad we have our priorities straight.
    I suspect that the money is being donated by people that have had enough of bigots infringing on the free right of Americans to practice as their conscience demands. They probably realize that if we allow those gay activism bigots to get their way and suppress that conscientiously objecting minority, then there will be future minorities with other aggravating beliefs they want to express suppressed in the name of yet unknown causes by yet unformed coalitions du jour. And they realize that all of a sudden it might be them getting the stick of a new crazed majority and that that is the reason the Constitution demanded that minorities may not be suppressed in the expression of opinions religious nor political.

    Ignore it. That is only a feeble if malicious and underhanded slight and slander attack. Very much unappealing, but legitimate in a country, where the expression of opinion is free.

    The reporter who setup the GoFundMe account works for The Blaze.

    So the consipiracy theory is a coordinated effort between the pizzeria owners & Glenn Beck? Get out the tin foil hats!

    It is cynical. It is also not very plausible. The media, desperate for a local turn to a state story, went out searching until they found a restaurant owner (any restaurant owner) willing to say they would not serve a gay wedding, tried to turn them into a sacrificial victim, and instead it backfired.


    How do you plan a scam that requires the random actions of a media outlet? Mind control?

I am proud to be a member of the stupid party. Periodically, the two parties get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. This is called: bipartisanship."

    Precisely. This is just sour grapes from folks who would prefer a world in which the pizza owners were properly punished.

    So, they enticed a reporter to come into their restaurant and ask them whether or not they would cater a gay wedding so that they could set up a fund when they started getting death threats and threats of violence and vandalism?

    Man, the ability of left wingers to spin up a bunch of nonsense in a conspiracy theory is unparalleled. It's an index of how hateful they are, I suppose.

    What you are seeing is the wholesale rejection of gay activism by ordinary people. That's what all the money coming to that fund means. Whatever they might think of gay people, people despise gay activists. They despise self-styled social justice warriors. Gay activists are mean, evil and intolerant. They deserve this embarrassment.

    A woman who flirts?

    If that is the case, why not just change your profile to show your gender?
