WHINY ATHEISTS: Diner That Gave Discount For ‘Praying in Public’ Is Forced to Stop After Atheists Pout

Published on August 9, 2014

Whiny atheists seem to have won the battle in this one. After the Freedom from Religion Foundation complained about the prayer discount at Mary’s Gourmet Diner, and threatened them with a lawsuit, they decided to discontinue the discount. See below…

Validating the fears of many, the Freedom From Religion Foundation found this to be a violation of the Civil Rights Act, and wrote a letter to Mary’s Gourmet Diner urging them “to discontinue this discriminatory discount.”

If you truly wish to reward gratitude in customers regardless of religion, you must do so in a way that does not single out customers who pray for favorable treatment.

According to a photo taken by Bruce Chapman of the Winston-Salem Journal, Mary’s posted the following message in their window:

We at Mary’s value the support of ALL our fellow Americans. While you may exercise your right of religious freedom at this restaurant by praying over your meal to any entity or non-entity, we must protect your freedom from religion in a public place. We are no longer issuing the 15% praying in public discount. It is illegal and we are being threatened by lawsuit. We apologize to our community for ANY offense this discount has incurred.
