I believe they do have the right to not tip the waiter for what ever reason that may be including there in my option non nonsensical religion but the
negative or even hateful note was not necessary.
I agree with you. If you feel some "moral" need to disregard your religion's teachings about generosity toward your fellow human beings due to the
belief that an archaic law designed to curb the spread of sexually transmitted infections and enforce reproductive relationships was handed down by
God, even though it was clearly written by the very same priesthood that your most prominent spiritual teacher spoke out against (deep breath, that
was a mouthful), then by all means keep your filthy money.
However, I'm wondering why this is news. I suppose the reporter might have felt a certain "moral" obligation to expose these most hypocritical actions
of religious folk. Or perhaps, as some members have alleged, it is a propaganda piece to drum up hatred toward Christians to advance some Atheistic or
New-Age religious agenda...
But this story is a double edged sword. It not only hurts Christians, it hurts gays and my other LGBT brothers and sisters as well. This story serves
as a reminder to us that there are people out there who hate us, or at least disapprove of us so much that they will take any opportunity to
figuratively backhand us across the face. As someone who is in the process of coming out to live fully as the real me, I find this story to be as
hurtful to me as the actions of the alleged Christians would have been to the waiter.
So what is the real message behind this story?
"Hey everybody, you should hate Christians because they're rude and judgmental!"
"Hey homos, guess what, Christians still hate you. And so do a bunch of other people."
Perhaps the real message is something along these lines:
"Hey, you guys should hate eachother and pay no attention to the Government which is fornicating all of you with a long rusty rod."
