Restaurant in Pennsylvania Harassed By Godless Morons For Giving Sunday Discounts to Church Goers

Discrimination?  I don’t think so!  No one’s being discriminated against here.  If Atheists want a discount on Sundays, all they have to do is go to a church and get a bulletin.  It doesn’t matter which church it is; it could be the Church of Satan, for all anyone cares.  Just bring a church bulletin with you.  See?  No discrimination because ANYONE can do it.  Sheesh!  Godless morons are the worst!

You see, it’s like this:  Here in Missouri, we have businesses which give discounts to Cardinal baseball fans.  The fans go to the stadium and watch the games.  Then, after the game, they go to their local participating gas station or favorite participating sports bar and present their Cardinal ticket stubs to get discounts.  You don’t see any non-sports fans getting all bent out of shape over that, now do you?   So, get over it, you Godless morons! 

BTW – There’s a Chinese restaurant that my wife and daughter and I go to all the time after church, and guess what?  They offer a Sunday discount for presenting a church bulletin.  The funny thing is, I don’t even think they’re Christians.  In fact, I’m pretty darn well positive that they’re all Buddhists!  

You see, it’s not religion which motivates most restaurant owners, it’s all about capitalism and the search for the almighty dollar!  If you can entice large, Churchgoing families to stop by your restaurant on their way home from church, you can make mucho dinero, amigo!  The Sunday discount for churchgoers is one of the best ways to do that.

Moral of the story?  Embrace American culture, you Godless dingbats!  And, if you want to get a Sunday discount at a particular restaurant, go to church!  It’ll probably do you some good:

Restaurant Faces Investigation For Offering Church Discount
By Todd Starnes – RadioFoxNews
A family-owned restaurant in Pennsylvania is under a state discrimination investigation for offering a ten percent discount for diners who present a church bulletin on Sundays.

The Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission confirmed there is an investigation against Prudhomme’s Lost Cajun Kitchen in the town of Columbia. The complaint was filed by John Wolff, a retired electrical engineer.

“I did this not out of spite, but out of a feeling against the prevailing self-righteousness that stems from religion, particular in Lancaster County,” Wolff told the York Daily Record. “I don’t consider it an earth-shaking affair, but in this area in particular, we seem to have so many self-righteous religious people, so it just annoys me.”

According to the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act, a restaurant classified as a public accomodation. As such, restaurants are not allowed to discriminate based on religion — among other things.

Sharon Prudhomme, who owns the restaurant along with her husband, said she’s not discriminating against anybody – and plans on fighting the charges.

“What freaks me out is the state of Pennsylvania is basically agreeing with this guy,” Prudhomme told Fox News Radio. “We’re just a mom and pop. We’re not some big chain like the Olive Garden.”

Prudhomme said the trouble started in April of 2011 when she received the first of several letters from the Freedom From Religion Foundation. The FFRF is a Wisconsin-based organization of “more than 17,000 freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and skeptics,” according to its website.

The FFRF demanded that she stop giving discounts to patrons who brought in a Sunday church bulletin.
“I just filed it and blew off the other letters,” Prudhomme said. “I said I have no intention of taking it off the website.”

Last Friday the restaurant was served with a 16-page complaint from the state of Pennsylvania – accusing her of discrimination.
“I’m an American,” Prudhomme said. “This is America. This is my business and we’re not breaking any laws.”

She said a representative from the state suggested that she should compromise and sign an agreement that she would offer discounts to any civic organization in the town.

“I said, ‘Wait a minute – you’re asking my husband and I to give anybody coming through my door a discount?’” she recounted. “They said yes.”

“I said, ‘Are you crazy?’”

“We have taxes to pay,” she said. “We have utility bills, payroll, mortgages and they’re expecting me to give everyone a discount?”

Prudhomme said that’s just not going to happen.

“This is our business,” she said. “We’re the ones paying the taxes. We need the people coming in. Our life is in this – and then to have someone come along and tell me what I can do and what I can’t do?”
She wondered if their other discounts might be considered discriminatory — like the one on Tuesday night – where kids under 12 get to eat free. Or what about the senior discount?

“Could someone under 65 complain?” she asked.

Wolff told Lancaster Online that he discovered the church discount on the privately owned restaurant’s website.

“That rubbed me a bit the wrong way,” he told the online publication. “It’s not a big deal in itself and I have no animosity towards Prudhomme’s, but I do bear a grudge against a religious right that seems to intrude on our civil rights.”

If the commission determines there’s enough evidence to support the complaint, it could be referred to a public hearing. Should the restaurant owners be found in violation, it’s unclear what penalty they might face.

    I’ll bet he has no problem with affirmative action!! This guy is the most self righteous ass I’ve read about in a long time!


    • And, I’m sure he has no problem with the highly sexist and discriminatory “Ladies Night” at the local bar…

      Yup, it’s all about discriminating against Christians for him. Funny, but the U.S. Constitution doesn’t say that Christians can’t practice their faith in public, what it does say is that Congress can’t play favorites amongst the established religions.

      Last time I checked, a privately owned restaurant is not Congress!

      KKK member and FDR appointee, Justice Black, is responsible. His fatuous ruling of a separation between church and state is an unconstitutional ruling in that it discriminates against Christians and other religions.

      It is now a civil rights issue, in my mind. Not for the Atheists, but for the Christians. It is not the Atheists who are being discriminated against, it is the Christians who are being discriminated against every day.

      We need to overturn Justice Black’s ruling if we, as Christians, are to have any hope of living in America and being able to freely practice our religion.

      Cheers


  2. I say let the atheist ***holes open up thier own restraunt! Leave Christians or other religions alone.

    In Pennsylvania a complaint regarding food service is acted upon with lightening speed but if your kid is sodomized by a “coach” in broad daylight in the shower at the state university chances are your complaint will go ignored.

    John is annoyed, something must be done, alert the sub retarded morons of the state! As far as I am concerned you could take these people from the state and burn them at the stake!

    John is the one who needs to be investigated, where there’s smoke there’s fire and all that.

      Concerning the Penn State case only now that the criminal pervert has been convicted loads of ‘information’ is coming out. In this case. There are surly more victims out there that will not come forward out of false guilt or shame. I am happy to see the sharks (i.e. lawyers) circling the University and other entities, and they are out for blood. I suspect that the list of those who knew, suspected or willfully covered up or ignored such disgusting child abuse, seduction and rape, will grow into the hundreds, which will include staff, the local political class, law enforcement and the local MSM. Correct me if I am wrong but a few years back a prosecutor ‘disappeared’, in that district. This scandal is much deeper then any of us realize. If all involved come to light or their names are printed in the press the University will be damaged for decades.

    Here is an idea, lets take John and the Dearborn stoners and put them together in their own separate area.

  5. Big Frank Says:

    When will these atheist dingbats understand that it’s freedom of religion not freedom from religion?

  6. Gonzo Says:

    I’m not a lawyer, so this commentary may be immaterial, however, before one can sue, dont they have to first prove that they, themselves, were harmed in some way?

    From what I’ve read of this case, the atheist admits that he never actually went to the restaurant, nor had ever gone there, nor plans to go there. So where are the damages? He was never denied anything, as he has never had to pay anything there, let alone more than other customers.

    He saw an ad, and CHOSE to be offended. If CHOOSING to be offended by something was an actionable lawsuit, the world would be comprised of 49% lawyers, 2% judges, and 49% of people CHOOSING to be offended.
