A northern Indiana pizza shop that came under fire after its owners said their religious beliefs wouldn’t allow them to cater a gay wedding is closed indefinitely, and its operators say they’ve gone into hiding.

Memories Pizza in Walkerton faced criticism this week after co-owner Crystal O’Connor expressed support for a new Indiana religious objections law. The Facebook and Yelp pages for the restaurant about 20 miles southwest of South Bend were bombarded with negative reviews.

A coach of a high school golf program was suspended after a Twitter post that mentioned going to Walkerton and burning down the restaurant.

WNDU-TV reports that O’Connor and her family are considering leaving town.

A gofundme.com site benefiting the restaurant had raised more than $500,000 as of Friday morning.

You gotta have A LOT of hate in ya blood to donate money to these people.
