But then how do extrapolate that? There are plenty of things people say are not choices and are part of them but the rest of us do not. Some people say that they are part cat and that it's not a choice for them, it's how they are born.
Is being Jewish a choice or not? It's a religion yes, but it's also an ethnic group? Would it then be okay to discriminate against a Scottish Jewish convert because he made a choice but not an ethnic Jew because it's not?
These are the problems you get when the state tries to dictate associations and arbitrarily pick who is protected or not--often just to pander to one group or another.

Turns out, looks like the whole thing has probably been orchestrated by Glenn Beck's "The Blaze" network.
You just figured that out ??
The 1st link in the op story has a video from The Blaze !!!!!!

Planting Peace is hosting a virtual pizza party that will benefit homeless members of the LGBT community. -- RAFFY ERMAC APRIL 07 2015
Charitable, LGBT-friendly organization Planting Peace harnessed the power of the internet Saturday to launch a "Virtual Pizza" fundraiser to help combat LGBT homelessness.
The pizza-themed drive, which has raised more than $36,000 at press time, is in direct response to another fundraising campaign that benefitted the owners of the Walkerton, Indiana's Memories Pizza, after the shop temporarily closed its doors while facing backlash for publicly supporting the state’s new Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
Employees of a talk show on noted conservative Glenn Beck’s The Blaze network started a GoFundMe page for Memories Pizza co-owners Kevin and Crystal O’Connor last week — and raised more than $840,000 in a matter of days for the antigay pizzeria owners.
“I wanted to try to raise money for something that will actually make the world better and send a message of support to the LGBTQ community,” said Aaron Jackson, Planting Peace’s president, in a statement. “The best thing we can do in the face of something so negative is to try to turn it into something positive."
