I know what you are thinking. Probably think the owners and operators of this pizza restaurant are pretty prejudice, huh? Well, I am here to tell you that is not the case. I'm all about the freedom of sexual expression. Can't get enough of it. We should just do away with > and <, it's time to make all things = . I just don't think the main objective of this restaurant is to discriminate. After all, they don't even refuse service to those of an alternative lifestyle.
See, the phenomenon at place here is a little thing I call 'saving face'. Say no to gay weddings before they say no to you. It's like saying a girl isn't that attractive when you know you have no chance at sleeping with her. It's always better to quit than be fired. What's a bigger black mark for the business? Being known collectively for your bigotry, or being blackballed for your subpar cuisine?
Make no mistake, no gay couple, law or not, was going to ask 'Memories' to cater their wedding.
You don't have to accept gay people to realize they have a proclivity for the finer things. Hell, I would pull the fire alarm just to get my hands on some gay crab cakes. I would crash a gay wedding in a sequenced suit and a rainbow tie just to be a part of that cock-n-tail hour. Even if I didn't acknowledge a homosexuals right to exist I would still let them suggest a good Thai restaurant. If there was a gay 'Yelp!' no one would ever be disappointed in their meal ever again. Gay people have taste. Whether it be in fashion, design, or food. I know that. You know that. 'Memories Pizza' knows that. Shun the demographic before the demographic shuns you. Pizza in the Midwest sucks. I can only imagine that truth to be accentuated when it's made by someone that hasn't seen the sun, a dentist, or a pilot for any assimilating sitcom in the last decade. 'Memories' knows they make shitty pizza, they just can't have homosexuals out there confirming it to the masses. The denunciation of homosexuality doesn't deter nearly the amount of business that a homosexual's stamp of disapproval does.
