    Indiana pizzeria that said it wouldn't cater gay weddings raises over 475K

    Fundraiser for Indiana pizzeria that said it wouldn't cater gay weddings raises over $475k - Chicago Tribune

    The initial goal for the campaign was $25,000. By 1 a.m. Friday, more than $475,000 had been kicked in. That's more than enough to buy a large home in Walkerton.
    Is it cynical of me to wonder if the goal from the very beginning was money?

    It sure seems that way. They set up their own to be scammed, and now they're wallowing in it.

    Re: Indiana pizzeria that said it wouldn't cater gay weddings raises over 475K

    Hi everyone, I would just like to announce that Ive signed a deal to open several branches of my new business venture in Indiana- the PoS Pizzeria Co. I currently plan to open up 4 branches shortly:

    Branch 1: will not cater to gay weddings but will tolerate everybody else.

    Branch 2: will not cater to Christian weddings but will tolerate everybody else.

    Branch 3: will not cater to Muslim weddings but will tolerate everybody else.

    Branch 4: will not cater to Atheist weddings but will tolerate everybody else.

    Please post negative reviews of my pizzerias at Yelp so I can get on TV and start a separate GoFundMe campaign for each one please. Thank you.

    That comes to almost $1.5 million! I think we are on to something here!

    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 told you this was a false-flag op.

    That's the only goal there ever is. No business actually cares about gays getting married.

    Yes.

    If it was, the reporter would have to be in on it as well as the person who started the gofundme campaign.

    Regardless, currently it is ...

    $489,324 of $200k
    Raised by 16,513 people in 1 day


    Support Memories Pizza by Lawrence Billy Jones III - GoFundMe

    and increasing by the second.

    Too many negative waves and not enough loot.

    It certainly seems a trick worth imitation.
