An Indiana pizzeria will reopen its doors after receiving $800,000 in donations. Memories Pizza in Walkerton recently closed after owner Crystal O’Connor stated that the restaurant would not cater same-sex weddings.
Charisma News reports O’Connor and the company received threats after making the statement and police were forced to heighten security in the area.
Supporters backing the O’Connor family raised $800,00 so that Memories Pizza would reopen its doors.
O’Connor told the Daily Mail, "I wasn't trying to score points. It is something I believe in from my heart and my faith about gay weddings. But I don't regret what I said. I have been scared, but God is giving me strength. I think it is nothing compared to what Christ had to suffer."
