How many times did we hear that supporting same-sex marriage would not affect people who opposed same-sex marriage? We heard, “No one is forcing you to marry someone of the same sex.” A lot of people fell for the argument. “It’s none of my business who someone wants to marry. Live and let live.”
Sounded good at the time, but that was a long time ago.
It’s now everybody’s business. Homosexuals will force us to make it our business. Any dissent will be immediately attacked. If the courts to fine you and shut down your business for not embracing same-sex marriage, then hordes of homosexuals will work overtime to shut down your business.
Consider Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana. The owner of Memories Pizza was being interviewed on the controversy surrounding Indiana’s religious freedom law. The business did not seek out publicity. A news team came to the restaurant. Owner Crystal O’Connor said that she favored the law, “noting that while anyone can eat in her family restaurant, if the business were asked to cater a gay wedding, they would not do it. It conflicts with their biblical beliefs.”
One would think that any business would have that right.
When the comments got out, homosexuals across the country went into action and attacked the owners as hateful bigots. “At Yelp.com, more than a thousand ‘reviews’ of Memories Pizza rapidly accumulated, quickly overwhelming the positive comments from actual customers who like the pizza.”
The comments had nothing to do with the quality of the pizza or the service. They were attacks on the owners and their business. Some “reviewers” posted disgusting pornographic pictures.
This is a side of the same-sex movement that people don’t often see. If these images were part of the debate over same-sex marriage, the vast majority of Americans would reject the homosexual worldview. Instead, they get a sanitized version of the “gay” lifestyle.
“A female coach at Concord High School 45 minutes away in Elkhart, has been suspended after tweeting: ‘Who’s going to Walkerton, IN to burn down #memoriespizza w me?’”
The attacks were so virulent that the owners had to shut down their business. Kind of reminds you of Kristallnacht in Germany when Jewish businesses were attacked by Nazis.
We’re beginning to see that government officials are intimidated by homosexuals. The latest report is that the Religious Freedom legislation is being watered down to accommodate same-sex bullies.
So what can you do? This is from John Hawkins at Right Wing News:
“When there are Christians being persecuted by anti-Christian hatemongers for standing up for Biblical principles, Christians have a duty to come to their defense. Furthermore, we owe a special debt to Memories Pizza because they exposed the hateful nature of the people we’re up against and their true intentions. These are people who believe Christians should be forced to cater to gay weddings or lose their businesses and they can’t deny it any longer. While we’re waiting to swing into action and lend a hand, feel free to chip in a few bucks to help Memories Pizza here.”
How can you help? There is a GoFundMe page to Support Memories Pizza. I’ve just donated $100. Do what you can and tell your friends about it. As of April 3, 2015 at 8:00 it’s nearing $500,000.
Liberals win because they never give up, they always speak up, and they pony up financial support when needed.
