WALKERTON, Ind. - An Indiana pizzeria that said it would not hypothetically cater a same-sex wedding, is now closed.

But not before supporters raised $842,592 through online donations.

Memories Pizza in Walkerton got national attention when the owners decided to back the state's Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

They said they couldn't cater a gay wedding because of their religious convictions.

There was a huge backlash on the pizzeria's Yelp page, but more than 28,000 people have donated money to help them out.
