Business Insider is incorrectly reporting that the Memories Pizza site was “hacked.” Nope. It’s a spoof site. They didn’t have a website.

Heard they shut down and may close for good.

I don’t like the threats they were getting. I do think they deliberately went looking for trouble, and they should not have been suprised when they found it.

The usual suspects at National Review and TAC are screaming about the lavender Nazis shoveling Christians into ovens over this.

Have you seen their Yelp Page? All kinds of crazy photos and there are almost 400 reviews,—all except two from today. They’re brutal.

I can’t condone any threats of violence. On the other hand, I think we’ve all learned that bigotry is not a sustainable business model.

A couple of hours after I posted this, I saw what was posted on Yelp and I felt bad. I mocked their ignorance, but the family that owns this shop was bombarded with hate of a different stripe, but it is hate all the same. They did bring it on themselves, but this was over the top and just too much, and I regret whatever part - however small - I played in it.

Still, my gut tells me that if a gay couple - particularly a gay MALE couple - entered the premises, hand in hand, and placed an order, the family that owns this shop would attempt to deny them service, citing this law.

And that’s why there are still many places in America today where a gay couple - especially a gay MALE couple - won’t dare do anything like that in most areas of most red states.

Because if they did, they might not live to tell about it.

Seriously.

They brought this on themselves by admitting they planned to discriminate against people. And as said, this isn’t even their website.

As much as I disagree with their stance, it’s worth remembering that Memories Pizza was picked at random and prompted for their view by a local TV station.

(Warning: Pajamas Media link.)

Story About First Business to ‘Publicly Vow to Reject Gay Weddings’ Was Fabricated Out of Nothing

It’s not like Memories put out a press release about the unlikely scenario of a pizza-catered gay wedding.

Seriously.

I read a biography of John Fisher, a white South African born it must have been about 1910. He was sitting in some eatery in Joburg or Pretoria when some Japanese came in and sat down to eat. The proprietor told them that he didn’t serve “kafirs”, meaning, “blecks”. Fisher went over and explained to the proprietor that they were with him, which of course they weren’t. But true or false, it was a snag in the proprietor’s script and he can’t have been too sure about himself anyhow, because he backed down and said, well, then, of course that’s different.

Upshot…Fisher got lunch company, and an invite to come and study in Japan. He took it up, went and lived there for years, learned the language inside out and to a T.

When WW2 rolled around, Fisher was a rubber plantation manager and found himself drawn into resistance work. He was taken POW, rather than killed, because it was such a curiosity to have a gaijin speak fluent high society Japanese that the sergeant just had to get the Lt to see it, and up the chain things went.

Fisher proved quite the hero in prison camp, and was knighted for his conduct there.

But the story begins with an episode that illustrates the bigot mindset, at bigotry ground zero in time and space. It is just hard to believe that most of Indiana is today full of people who would just up and kill a couple for holding hands and ordering pizza.

Life lesson: if a reporter wanders in and asks you to say something controversial for the record, don’t say anything! It’s a simple process. I wish I could feel sympathy for the pizza joint, but they could have said, in answer to the question, “we’ve never been asked to cater a gay wedding.” If pressed, they could say, “we don’t know why any sane person would want to serve pizza at a wedding reception. Pizza sauce and finery don’t go well together.”
