Indiana Republicans like Gov. Mike pence shamelessly deny that their “Religious Liberty” law will allow legal discrimination against gays and lesbians, but legal experts and the facts say otherwise. In fact, an Indiana pizzeria named Memories Pizza has become the first to proudly announced that it will deny its services to gay couples.
“If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no,” says Crystal O’Connor, the owner’s daughter. “We are a Christian establishment.”
Kevin O’Connor, the pizza shop owner, expressed a strong support for the law and a bigoted disdain for sexual minorities, who according to him “choose” to the gay.
“That lifestyle is something they choose. I choose to be heterosexual. They choose to be homosexual. Why should I be beat over the head to go along with something they choose?” says O’Connor.
Indiana Republicans can deny that their bigoted “religious liberty” law is explicitly designed to allow discrimination against gays until they’re blue in the face, but the discrimination has already begun.
