“Thank you for your service, it was excellent. That being said, we cannot in good conscience tip you, for your homosexual lifestyle is an affront to GOD. Queers do not share in the wealth of GOD, and you will not share in ours. We hope you will see the tip your fag choices made you lose out on, and plan accordingly. It is never too late for GOD’S love, but none shall be spared for fags. May GOD have mercy on you.”

Another example of Christian zealotry at it's worst. Coming from the city/State this occurred in, I really don't doubt this actually happened since it's SOP.

I won't even bother with a link, since ever news service has their own variance of the deleted words.

Do they really thing they're doing "God's Work" by shunning the people they're supposed to be saving ? Christ walked with the  lepers and saved a prostitute to be among his chosen.

Actually, this is a very positive example of the unintended consequences brought about by nasty, negative behavior.

Both the waiter and LGBT community have gotten tremendous support as a result of that biggoted note, far more positive feedback than could have been generated most any other way!!

A microcosm at the personal level of what the Tea Hatters are doing on the national political scene.  So many problems turn out to be self correcting once they get public exposure to the facts.
