Indiana Pizzeria Rolling In Dough: $800,000.00 In Two Days

by WND  |  published on April 3, 2015

lehmanThe Christian, family owned pizzeria in Indiana forced to close after it received death threats from the “gay marriage” movement has raised more than $801,000 in less than two days through an online GoFundMe account.

It took the account set up for business owners Kevin and Christie O’Connor of Memories Pizza only 20 hours to eclipse its goal of $200,000.

The O’Connors, who were asked by a reporter how they would respond to the state’s new Religious Freedom Restoration Act, said: “We would serve gay individuals at the restaurant, but due to religious beliefs, would decline to cater a same-sex wedding.”

That was enough to bring an avalanche of pressure crashing down on the small-town pizzeria owners, including threats to harm or kill the family.

Jess Dooley, a female golf coach at Concord High School in Elkhart, Indiana, threatened in a tweet to burn the family’s restaurant down, saying: “Who’s going to Walkerton, IN to burn down #memoriespizza w me?”

    The Bible promises: When you see these things coming to pass, lift up your heads because your redemption draweth nigh. So do not be discouraged, our enemies plan our downfall but God has other plans.

    People, stand up, kick these fags in the teeth, to hell with their cry baby problems. Life is a bitch.
    These disgusting perverts need to be hidden in the closet, and stay there. If I don’t like a faggot, I have every right to tell that faggot to get the hell out of my shop and off my property. it is a God given right to protect yourself, your family and your property, this threat about burning down an establishment is a crime, why isn’t this person jailed and tried for terroristic threatening ?
    WHY ? Why is the Government all for this Gay Lesbian movement crap ? Are they all gay ?
    Who are the fags behind all this ? Obama and his boyfriend Michelle ?

    Jess Dooley, a female (lesbian) golf coach at Concord High School in Elkhart, Indiana should be brought up on charges and fired from her teaching job.

    Why not ask a Muslim bakery i.e in Dearborn, Michigan their opinion

  • woodchuck 44

    what kind of society do we live in? A coach/teacher advocates the burning of a business what a moronic statement to make, and death threats on the web, live and let live

    Jess Dooley should lose her job.

      Indiana is 20 years behind the times, we are the only state in America that still has school book rental every year for each student, but yet the kids don’t receive school books, just ran off copy’s of pages of books, the leadership in Indiana is a joke and until the people start sticking together we are done as a state, and the laughing stock of the world.

    See, there ya go. PAY ATTENTION. If you give your money to the good guys, the G-O-O-D guys will have the money and most likely spend it on good things for you and me.
    If you give you money to the B-A-D guys, they will have it and most likely spend it on bad things for you and me.
    DO NOT give your money to any entity that is owned by, supports or advances homosexuality.

    BREAK THEIR BACK – ENFORCE THE CONSTITUTION, in every district where violated. Keep it to the Constitution and let no inferior law, regulation, judge, or official abridge or negate it (Article 6)!

    Amendment 1 “Congress shall make no law respecting religion, or prohibiting free exercise thereof…”; Amendment 13 “…involuntary servitude (shall NOT) exist in the USA”; and Amendment 14-1 “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens” are “supreme laws” trumping statutes , orders, and judicial opinion (Article 6)! Amendment 4 protects private domain and person from trespass and subservience! They’re undeniably clear and blunt! Amendment14 Sec 3&4 bans any oath bound official from holding any office and imposes personal liability for engaging in insurrection (open opposition by a number of people) or rebellion (revolt) against the Constitution and country they owe allegiance! Likewise, individuals engaged in insurrection and rebellions are held to criminal civil rights violations as well as civil damages!

      When Pence kissed up to the anti-Christ media he ignored all the above as well as his own knowledge of right from wrong. There is a price for Pence to pay as he is a constitutional scholar probably fearing for his life. These radical homos bring their ilk in here from all over the US to protest our state. Not one controlled media station gave one drop of attention to the people who upheld Pence in fact they tried to make fools of the leaders of marriage between a man and a woman. This nation has become as in the days of Noah!

    • Thank you for posting those Constitutional references! I knew they were in there someplace. Sometimes I wonder if our citizens (and Congressmen, in some cases) ever read the Constitution1

    These sodomites need to understand they don’t have to frequent this pizzeria, by all means please do go elsewhere. As for the death threats I thought you sodomites and liberals where so peace loving? Owner need not fear this people and need not close you business. The way I see it is if you don’t mind lead poisoning then bring it on!

    All Empires, all, in their final stages suffer the leadership take-over by homosexual behavior. The former Soviet Union is a good contemporary example. Not far in the distant past, Nazi Germany was riddled with gay leadership. We all know about that story. The Japanese leadership fell into the same trap, but with a lot more finesse. America went from a Republic to and Empire early on it’s formation and that Empire is filled with perverted leadership. I know what some of you are thinking, perverted to whom? You know to whom I am referring.

    Allow me to go back a little further in time for those of you who may still be in denial. By the way, denial is not a river in Egypt. As much as some of you may dislike it, the Bible recorded cultures that were taken over by the practice of homosexual behavior. That didn’t didn’t work out so good for them. Moving right along, Persia was a bit upside down. Whew! Going Greek anyone!? Athenians and Spartans were quite loosey goosey when it came to the “Plumbing codes.” Ah! Then there was the good old Romans. Now there was a civilization that had it down baby! They enjoyed more semen flowing in the bathhouses then hot spring water. Too bad cellphone camera/videos weren’t around back then. I’ll bet that was hot! Ugh!… Uh, where was I going with this?

    My point is that “We the People” are in deep trouble.

    Argue and disagree all you want, but death and destruction is upon us and our enemies are gloating over our demise. America is finished. Look on the bright side, there still a few donut shops left. So, may I suggest that we all of run out and buy up all the donuts we can before the apocalypse and gays toast the last donut shop!!! Life is a B_tch. Ain’t it?. Good day.

  • Romans 1:18-32 (NLT)
    18 But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness.[i] 19 They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. 20 For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.

    21 Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. 22 Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools. 23 And instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, they worshiped idols made to look like mere people and birds and animals and reptiles.

    24 So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. 25 They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen. 26 That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. 27 And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.

    28 Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done. 29 Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, envy, murder, quarreling, deception, malicious behavior, and gossip. 30 They are backstabbers, haters of God, insolent, proud, and boastful. They invent new ways of sinning, and they disobey their parents. 31 They refuse to understand, break their promises, are heartless, and have no mercy. 32 They know God’s justice requires that those who do these things deserve to die, yet they do them anyway. Worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too.

      And all of Gods children said Amen!

      $800,000++ a true random act of God that represents invisible divine power that can change lives as well as very easily remove the wicked from office by a landslide of patriot votes that can’t be bought. Can we imagine a candidate without money capturing a world away from the wicked with limitless wealth, status, and influence??? Think & pray about it!

    • Mary

      I totally agree. I am a Christian and I believe what the Bible says. BUT, most people that have protested this law DO NOT believe what it says so they couldn’t care less about our arguments against this sin. They only care about what they see as our way of being against what they do. They don’t care that we don’t see it as just another sin, which we all have and have to answer for, they just see it as us against them.

      • Mary

        I meant that we DO see it as another sin, not that we don’t.

    • Amen !!!!

    Every time someone on the left says something stupid I send this out.
    It doesn’t work due to miswireing of left brains but I feel better knowing I do what I say. God forbid if the majority of Americans stopped doing business with gay and lesbian stores. We would never do that but again different wiring.
    Martin Luther King was right, ‘Judge people by the content of their character’.

    ‘Kevin Spencer Conservative Creed.’
    The difference between the RIGHT and the WRONG

    If a conservative doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one.
    If a liberal doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.
    If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat.
    If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.
    If a conservative sees a foreign threat, he thinks about how to defeat his enemy.
    A liberal wonders how to surrender gracefully and still look good.
    If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
    If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.
    If a black man or Hispanic are conservative, they see themselves as independently successful.
    Their liberal counterparts see themselves as victims in need of government protection.
    If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
    A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.
    If a conservative doesn’t like a talk show host, he switches channels.
    Liberals demand that those they don’t like be shut down.
    If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn’t go to church.
    A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced. (Unless it’s a foreign religion, of course!)
    If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
    A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.
    If a conservative slips and falls in a store, he gets up, laughs and is embarrassed.
    If a liberal slips and falls, he grabs his neck, moans like he’s in labor and then sues.
    If a conservative reads this, he’ll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.
    A liberal will delete it because he’s “offended”.

      This is so true, thanks for writing it.

  • Joan

    Gays are ALWAYS lamenting how they’re being discriminated against! What
    victims they are! blah blah blah BUT they’re doing the SAME THING to Christians!
    Victimizing & discriminating against them! It’s the old hat ‘do as I say – NOT as I do’
    syndrome! &, in their collective minds, THAT’S cool! hip! acceptable! the new norm! HYPOCRITES!! BULLIES!! Truth be told, they currently have MORE RIGHTS! than the
    rest of us combined!! & that STILL ain’t enough fer em!! &, all the while, the crux of the
    matter has been left out of this discussion: bein gay is a PERSONAL CHOICE!!; NOT

  • Thank ‘s for every God fearing American. It is time to Take our religious freedoms back.
    Down South would would be a fool to Threaten to burn down a business. Your account would be used to track such threats down . We deal with our own problems . Send the sodomites south we will stop any threats.

  • doncentx

    Until we become a totalitarian state (which with obama/holder we may well be on the way) a private company in the United States should be allowed to sell/serve, or not sell/serve, to whomever they wish.

    • Donna

      Yes, and why aren’t these Bible-thumping business owners concerning about serving thieves, adulterers, child molesters, wife batterers, people who hurt animals, etc., all the horrible sins listed in this same Bible. Where’s your overwhelming concern about dealing with these other such people?Of course, they are not as easily identified as gay people. Why not focus on the hideous actions of these other people as well?

      • Chris Carmouche

        You’re missing the point. The question is not whether a bake or restaurant owner should provide services to “thieves, adulterers, child molesters, wife batterers, people who hurt animals, etc.” The question to be asked is: should a baker or restaurant owner be forced to cater a robbery, a “wife-swapping party” or a NAMBLA event? That would be a more proper analogy.

      • Daniel Herring

        Because all these people whom you have mentioned aren’t trying to take over the country!!!

  • Marion Clegg

    If they want to live this kind of life go ahead and live it but those of us that read the Bible know what God says about it. This is a CHRISTIAN nation so they must consider that and expect us to live our Christian beliefs. So live your lifestyle but leave us alone to live ours.

  • Anyone who truly loves and serves the God of Abraham should stand up untieldingly for the truths in his Holy Word the Bible. They should do so very calmly, kindly, and politely as the pizzeria owners in Indiana did. They obviously showed only kindnes and respect for sodomites and lesbians without compromising their Biblical against any marriage other the kind God has ordained. Because they have honored their beloved God and because they have done so in a calm and loving way, God is now honoring them with mental. emotional, spiritual, and even financial support. I am sure that they would not have yielded from their strong moral stand even if they had not been rewarded so generously and immediately. I salute them and I thank my wonderful God for them. They had no idea, I am sure, that they would be rewarded until reaching heaven. May God bless all true believers. Love, Bobbie Sena

  • Retta

    Religious freedom for whom? I’m confused, I didn’t know that being gay was a religion.

    • 2004done

      If they weren’t praying, what would they be doing kneeling?

    • Retta where is it said that being “gay” is a religion? “Gay” is a same gender orientation, not a religion.

    • Jeffrey Dorfman

      They are saying that their religious belief tells them that gays, lesbians and transgenders are against their biblical teachings, so they are using their religious belief to not cater to those weddings.
      That has been a hot subject for a very long time. Unfortunately, those particular Christians are outside of their biblical teachings by hating someone who has a different view on their own personal lives and takes the same self conflicting stand against those who want to marry same sex genders, which has nothing to do with them. If those particular Christians don’t believe in same sex marriages, then then shouldn’t partake in same sex marriages, not interfer with those that do. They are not bothering anyone. It should be a hate crime.

      • Patricia Mead

        Wherever did you get the idea that “religious beliefs” had anything to do with HATE? To begin with there is nothing in the Christian Bible that says a marriage is to be by license from the clerk of the court. A license to be married only makes everything you own and you children, wards of the state. There is a certain group of people who are married in the eyes of God and accept no licensing for anything. Homos only need a license to receive all the dollar benefits from the tax payer. They are getting way much too attention for their discriminating against Christians.

      • K.R.V.

        It is you and your “gay ” friends, (sodomites in my book, without a lick of hatred involved, just brutal honesty) that are telling others we Christians “hate” you. But nothing about this is the hatred of another person, but the hatred of the Sin committed by said person. There is no hate involved, there is only hatred in your mind. NOT ours!

  • mustang6984

    Golf coach should be fired.

    • Retta

      Hopefully, but don’t count on it.

    • Yes, mustang6984 the golf coach should be fired and barred from
      employment near young folks under age 21 years. She made a threat about destruction with fire and that is a statutory offense. An indictment is in order in a federal jurisdiction because her “inflammatory” remark in a “tweet” involved the internet which is controlled by the FCC.

      • Daniel Herring

        If it were a Christian who made these remarks they would have already been arrested.
