The GoFundMe campaign supporting the bigoted owners of Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana, has ended, raising the O’Connor family a grand total of $842,387.
The page was started Wednesday by a reporter at Glenn Beck’s The Blaze.com after Crystal told a local reporter the restaurant supported the state’s religious freedom law and would turn away a gay customer who wanted them to cater a gay wedding.
Donations started pouring in from sympathizers across the country, who’ve successfully turned this family into near-millionaires in the name of
