Rather than comment at length, I'd say your use of the word "equally," might be unfortunate. Supporting hatred of a group? Isn't that the problem?
It's wrong to minimize the issues facing the gay community. However I'd say it's equally reprehensible for people to support the hatred of Christians because of those issues.

Actually you may have proved the opposite. Look at the stub that says the total with tip is $111.55. Then look below on the same stub. Computer print says $93.55.
The computer print out below the signature area can not reflect the total amount after tip, only the amount before hand as the tip is entered separately when the check is closed. Until the check is finalized in the POS the slip that the customer signs is only a preauthorization and could not under any circumstances show the final amount including tip, the POS system provides a different receipt upon the closing of the check that in most restaurants is stapled to the check that has the customers signature.
For the customer, the only place the tip shows up as hard proof it has been entered is their credit card statement which in this case has been reviewed and has been shown to have the full amount of the bill + the tip added which is concrete proof that either the server or manager entered the tip when they closed the check.
It's the ONE thing on ATS I really am an expert on lol! I have worked at 18 different restaurants and have intimate knowledge operating and managing no less than a dozen different POS systems!edit on 26-11-2013 by Helious because: (no reason given)

Which the family provided the credit-card statement which also said that they tipped.

How is any gay person oppressed? They're not segregated, they're not poor (lots of them are pretty wealthy here in nyc), they're not hungry - I mean really, how are they oppressed?
Seems to me like they're asking for privileges, not rights.
Oh come on, are you really that ignorant?
How does this couple know it is them? Sounds pretty fishy to me.
"Thanks everyone for your support - it took very fiber of my being not to spit in their food and say something. (Not gonna lie if kids weren't there it would of been a totally different story)"

That's the problem. We aren't "kinds". As you pointed out gay people are different, even in their "kind". We've gotta stop looking at each other that way.

Well, next time someone wants to oppress your rights, I guess I won't bother standing up to defend you. I only do that for people who have a heart, like I do.
