Atheist Files Suit Over Restaurant’s Discount For Church Goers

posted on July 11, 2012 by

I’ve been to many restaurants in my years that gave discounts to senior citizens and some to active military, but I was never able to qualify for them at the time because I was too young or no longer in the service. I didn’t file a lawsuit claiming the restaurant owner was discriminating against me.

But that is exactly what a Pennsylvania man is doing. Prudhomme Lost Cajun Kitchen in Columbia, Pennsylvania has been offering a 10% discount on Sundays to anyone who brings in that day’s bulletin from their church. They started this discount a little more than a year ago, but have offered various other discounts over the years to help generate business, but no one has ever complained about not being able to take advantage of them until now.

John Wolff, an atheist, believes that is an unfair and discriminatory practice because he does not attend a church so is not eligible to receive the discount. Consequently, he has filed a complaint with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission who is now forced to investigate the restaurant and its owners.

In an interview with the media, Wolff stated:

“In this area in particular, we seem to have so many self-righteous religious people, so it just annoys me.”

Independent Law Center Chief Counsel Randall Wenger is representing the restaurant’s owners before the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission and commented about the lawsuit saying:

“I think we’re so incensed at this point that God … religion and particularly Christianity [are] being treated as something toxic and poisonous and undeserving to be in the closet. It’s one thing when government does it — that’s bad enough. But now, for government to be forcing, or trying to force, a private restaurant owner to treat religion as something toxic, I think just has a lot of people upset.”

“The agency should have looked at this thing and just thrown it out from the get-go because they’re not supposed to investigate claims that are frivolous. Here you’ve got somebody who’s basically just saying hey — church attendance is a good thing, and anybody who brings in a church bulletin, we’re going to give a ten-percent discount on Sundays.”

Think about it, many businesses give discounts if you purchase their products over the Internet, but not everyone has the Internet, so are those without online access being discriminated against? What about the coupons in the Sunday newspaper? People who don’t get the newspaper don’t get the coupons so they can’t take advantage of the discounts either.

How many places have held special promotions where you show up in your pajamas or some costume and you receive a discount? Better yet, professional sporting events who give out a promotion to everyone under a certain age and your son fails to qualify by a month?

The object of discounts and promotions is to bring people to your business. Many businesses can’t afford to give the same discount to everyone because their profit margin in today’s economy is so narrow. They rely on others paying regular price to help keep them afloat while giving discounts to others. Hopefully, those using the discounts will like your products or food enough to and want to come back again and again and help you build your business.

Life isn’t fair to everyone and we have to stop giving in to all those that want it that way. If I were the judge, I would not be able to stop laughing at the ridiculousness of this complaint as I would tell Mr. Wolff to get a life and quit being a cry baby.

    Speaking as an atheist, I would laugh in the face of the man who filed this lawsuit because "freedom of religion" only applies to government. When it's a privately-owned business, it's a property and freedom of association issue. They own the restaurant. They can do that.

    If you don't approve of it, then don't eat there. Patronize another restaurant. His lack of a religion has nothing to do with it. He's just a cry-baby.

    The title of your post is Atheists reaching a new low. Not atheist reaching new low. The S at the end makes it plural not singular. If that is a spelling mistake then I might be wrong and if that is the case I apologize. However I'm pretty smart and with your 2nd to last sentence in your response to me I'm going to say I was probably right all along.

    Saying you are being stupid for believing an untruth is not name calling. Just so you know in case you where to blinded by your stupidity I don't. think the guy should have sued the restaurant its a private business and they have the right to discount whomever they want. And if he didn't like it he should have gone else where. But I guess I'm just a intolerant hatemonger so what do I know............EDIT he blocked me I guess he has a little penis to go along with his little brain.

    Is he a Christian. Doesn't appear so. You failed in a very epic way. What True Christian would sue God?!?!?! Your point is as frivolous as his lawsuit suing God. You see we have a lot of blind folk in America that think they are Christians for one odd, unbibical reason or another but are not Christians according to God's Word and Teachings.

    So he can go somewhere else to eat. He probably doesn't normally go to that restaurant anyway. Probably just heard from someone that he could get a discount if he attended a church. So decided to fight it.
    There are so many other things, that are WORTHWHILE to fight for, we sure don't need to be cluttering up our courts with this garbage.

    I haven't seen the inside of a Lutheran Church since childhood. I wonder if they'll still validate my parking.
    So tough nuts if you don't think sparing an hour on Sunday morning just to darken the threshold of a house of worship should qualify for a cheesy discount for brunch. Just go to the Chum Bucket across the street and give them your business instead. That's how the market works. Gumming up the legal system with a lawsuit is just malicious.

    That would be great, but atheist and homosexuals want Christians to accept them, or else.
    If I am a business owner, such as a photographer or a bed and breakfast, and I don't want to cater to homosexuals, they will sue to force you or shut you down. There is no "live and let live" in their vocabulary.

    As another atheist I agree. If you don't like a business don't be there customer. I'm sure it was not the only restaurant in town.
