A waiter at Carrabba’s Italian Grill in Overland Park, Kansas, got more — and less — of a tip than he anticipated. After serving a Christian couple, the 20-year old waiter was left no cash, but this long note:
“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. Queers do not share in the wealth of GOD, and you will not share in ours. We hope you will see the tip your fag choices made you lose out on, and plan accordingly. It is never too late for GOD’S love, but none shall be spared for fags. May GOD have mercy on you.”
The server was not named in news reports, which note his mother works as the restaurant’s hostess.
“We embrace diversity and believe in treating everyone with respect,” a statement from Carrabba’s reads.
Fortunately, as word has spread, the waiter has received a lot of support from the community, with patrons stopping by asking to be seated in his section.
