Restaurant Investigated For Offering Church Members Discounts

This is un-freaking-believable….or maybe not so unbelievable in today’s America. Todd Starnes reports

(Fox News) 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.

He said 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.”

So, don’t go there if you don’t like it. It’s a private business. They aren’t telling anyone they can’t eat there. The owners plan to fight this, and are pretty upset with the state for actually investigating. They’ve had the state and the Freedom From Religion Foundation (which always seems to get in people’s private business) telling the restaurant to give everyone the discount. The owners told them to go pound sand.

One of the owners makes a good point

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.

I’m sure they could, but since it isn’t about some jerk having a fit over religion, it’d be ignored.
