For f*cks sake.

You claim to be all about Jesus, get your discounted po'boy then go the hell home.

He should get a bulletin from a Satanic church service and go get himself some catfish.

Geez. Why do so many people feel the need to mind everyone else's business?

I was ready to say this too, but then I saw that the dude is 80 and decided to chalk it up to old man yells at cloud.

If the restaurant was run by the state I could see there being an issue, but it isn't. It's a privately owned, independent restaurant. Separation of church and state doesn't even factor in.

Having said that, I wonder if this organization has gone after Chick-fil-A yet. Do they even have restaurants in Pennsylvania?

My bad for not reading the article. I'll concur that old man yells at cloud

So what would happen if you offered a discount for everyone who threw a bible in the trash when they walked in?

Remember age discrimination is wrong, unless it's a senior discount at stake.
And religious discrimination is wrong, unless it's a church bulletin discount at stake.

Would they accept a temple or mosque bulletin for the discount?

They're a bunch of Mennonites and Baptists that already got cleaned out by their fire and brimstone pastor. You're looking at 15%, tops, and that's AFTER the discount.

2012-07-02 06:08:50 PM
Private business, not a First Amendment issue. If they were refusing service to atheists, I could understand a complaint, but this is just silly. Old guy, foreign born, so he can't be expected to have an understanding of US law.


I was surprised at the implication that FFRF was involved, so I checked. They aren't. The guy is a member of FFRF, but this complaint has nothing to do with them. He filed it on his own, without backing or support from FFRF, and it's not mentioned on their website.

To be fair, you would have to leave your whiteness at the restaurant, just like your church service program.

I'm not far from there. I might have to walk in with a Playboy centerfold and tell them I'm from the Church of Tits and Ass. See what they say.

Diners who bring in a current church bulletin receive 10 percent off the purchase of their dinners.

Aren't all U.S. citizens guaranteed a separation of church and plate?

I'm outraged that if somebody presents their ticket stub from a game at the local high school can get free fries from McD's. Assholes. I don't do high school sports.

To use an oldie but goodie, the stick up that atheist's butt must have a stick up its butt.

\seriously, dude could just go to a farking church parking lot and find one on the ground for the discount if he wanted to go and give them a 5% tip that badly
\\you know the guy's a bad tipper, you just know it

Interesting idea. Better yet, find some of the Subgeniuses or Discordians at Allbright or Harrisburg Area Comm. Coll. (there are always some) and whip up some Bob or Eris pamphlets. See if those get you a discount, or if it's only "the right" religions.

Hah. Walk in dressed as an Arab holding a piece of papyrus covered in Arabic writing, and start ALLAH HU AKBARing. THAT would be fun.

There are crazy, stupid extremists on both sides of the fence folks. Plenty of crazy extremist Christians, Jews, Muslims, and atheists. The stupid and the crazy doesn't just fall into one neat little pile, unfortunately.

"Extremist atheists" seem to be cranky 80 year old men who complain about stupid things.

Extremist theists hijack planes and crash them into buildings, shoot doctors, and bulldoze people's houses.

Both sides are the same, I guess.

He's not grumpy because he's an atheist, he's grumpy because he's old. You don't HAVE to eat there & even if you do, you don't HAVE to use the discount. What's the savings there? A dollar, maybe?

Frankly, it really is a genius marketing idea.

Yes.

Last Sunday I passed one of the local Chick-fil-A's on a Sunday. The only people that were working around the restaurant were the landscapers.

Hmmm...it would be interesting to see what happens since this particular chain is closed on Sundays because of the chain owner's religious beliefs.

Are they the ones who have Bible verses on their drink cups and food wrappers, or is that In-N-Out? Or do both of them do that?

From the looks of the art and the lack of grey stripes on Hal Jordan's head, I'd guess that was from somewhere between 1984 and 1989.
