Skip to comments.Govít Gives PA Restaurant a Choice: Give 10% Sunday Church Bulletin Discount to Atheists Too or
Posted on 12/01/2012 1:56:58 PM PST by lowbridge
Do you recall the furor surrounding Prudhommes Lost Cajun Kitchen, a Pennsylvania-based restaurant, this past summer? The establishment has been offering a 10 percent discount for individuals who bring in a church bulletin on Sundays. Citing this action as discriminatory, John Wolff, a local atheist, filed a complaint with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission (PHRC). Now, the restaurant will be forced to offer discounts to any individual who brings in a pamphlet involving religious faith including atheism.
To continue offering its discount, Prudhommes Lost Cajun Kitchen must now honor literature that comes from any religious institution, The Christian Post reports. This includes secular bulletins from the Freedom From Religion Foundation, an atheist activist non-profit, and faith-based documents pertaining to Judaism, Islam and other religions on Sundays.
A one-line statement from the state human relations commission summarized these ideals: Respondent will continue to give a discount for any bulletin from any group oriented around the subject of religious faith, including publications from the Freedom From Religion Foundation, as long as they maintain the Sunday discount program.

Why don’t the athiests just go to the church and get the bulletin?
When did private individuals lose the right to discriminate?
That is insane.
Lots of businesses offer discounts and special deals for certain things. I guess its all illegal now?
There was a place giving discounts those who said they voted... have they been shut down for descriminating too??
(When did private individuals lose the right to discriminate?)
You obviously didn’t get the memo. When liberals discriminate, it’s called “freedom of choice”. When conservatives do it, it’s “discrimination”.
Restaurants are a "public accommodation." Ever since the Civil Rights acts of the 60's. Remember the "lunch counter" sit-ins? No, maybe you don't.
I’d tell the “gov’t commission” to take a flying freak at a rolling donut!
“Drinks free to Ladies on Wednesday!”
“Mens shirts laundered:$2
Women’s shirts laundered $4.”
“Free admission to children”(obviously discriminating to single people!!!)
Many Restaurants and clubs have ladies night and give free drinks to ladies. Restaurants also have kids eat free nights.
Remember when that meant something.
Tell the judge to shove it up his smelly Obama.
Even this geek who has no intellectual respect for the joke that is our legal system, thinks this should mean war.
How about we allow some Hell’s Angels to guard the doors.
They have infinitely more class and morals than that idiot atheist and we will all enjoy what they do to that Obamahole.
Senior discount? Ladies night? Student discount? Military discount? Employee discounts?
Don’t they all discriminate against against those who are not in those categories? So what. It is a business decision by the seller.
From what I understand, the complainer has never been to the restaurant. Why does he even have legal standing to file the complaint? What was he denied?
Whatever happened to the concept of "We reserve the right to refuse service."
Athiests can get the discount also - all they need to do is bring in a church bulletin. I guess the government’s fear is that the atheist, in obtaining a bulletin, might hear the word of God.
lol,, the athiest sued the people preparing his food. Thats bright,, very trusting of him!
At our store we offer 10% discount to active duty military & veterans.
I would like to invite code pinko or an organization like it to come protest.
I will furnish our location & other particulars upon their request.
