The outpouring of kindness and support for the young gay waiter who was left the ugly note instead of a tip has been amazing. There is definitely a lesson here for the sanctimonious frauds who passed the note under the guise of loving "Christians": Expect major push-back when you bully and demean in the name of God. You may not get away with it anymore. People are definitely on to you:
My heart is filled with joy at the anger this incident has spawned towards the so-called Christian couple. For far too long incidents like this one did not receive the kind of attention this one has and when one did, it always seemed like it was the so-called Christians who were portrayed as the victims. But I think the tables have turned. Finally.
I'll bet the couple that left that note never in a million years expected news of their nasty deed to spread like an Arizona wildfire through social media eventually making it to the local news. And this happened in the bright red state of Kansas!
Serves em right. Maybe they, and others of their ilk, will think twice before pulling this kind of ugly stunt again. Or ... maybe not.
For those who cannot watch the video:
OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) -
A 20-year-old waiter provided exemplary service at an Overland Park Italian restaurant, but his anti-gay customers refused to tip him because of his sexual orientation.
As word has spread through social media, other customers are coming in to offer words of encouragement and tip the young server extra.
The man works at the Carrabba's Italian Grill near 107th Street and Metcalf Avenue. His mother also works as a hostess and she was very upset by what was written on the back of the check earlier this week after he waited on a couple.
"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. (Homosexual slur) do not share in the wealth of GOD, and you will not share in ours," the customer wrote. "We hope you will see the tip your (homosexual slur) choices made you lose out on, and plan accordingly. It is never too late for GOD's love, but none shall be spared for (homosexual slur). May GOD have mercy on you."
The server and his mother declined to answer questions on camera, referring questions to restaurant management. The server said on social media that he wanted his work ethic and service to be what warranted tips, not sympathy.
