WALKERTON, Ind. (AP) - An Indiana woman whose family owns a small-town pizzeria says the state’s new religious objections law supports the restaurant’s right to deny service to any same-sex couples who might ask them to cater their wedding.

Crystal O’Connor of Memories Pizza says her family would serve a gay couple or a non-Christian couple at its restaurant in Walkerton, which is about 20 miles southwest of South Bend in northern Indiana.

But O’Connor tells WBND-TV (https://bit.ly/1bPeEEt ) that the restaurant would say no if a gay couple asked it to provide pizzas for their wedding.

O’Connor says the business reflects her family’s Christian beliefs. She says her family agrees with Indiana’s new law that prohibits any laws that “substantially burden” a person’s ability to follow his or her religious beliefs.
