Note To Gay Server: 'Your Lifestyle Is An Affront To God'

I don't think they were friends of Pope Francis.


All disgust aside, I'm happy that some of the real Christians in the area stepped up. Read on:

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. —A local server was thanked for good service during a recent meal at an Overland Park restaurant, and also received an anti-gay message with no tip.

KMBC 9 News found out about the incident on Facebook, where customers at the Carrabba's Italian Grill at 106th Street and Metcalf Avenue are rallying to the server's support.

Here's what happened: A server went to pick up a check from a meal, and found a message on the back of the bill. It read: "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. May God have mercy on you."

Friends of the server and customers took to social media to spread the word about what happened, and have vowed to go to the restaurant on Friday night at 6:30 p.m. as a sign of support.

The server has responded to the incident, saying "The offers to help pay me back are much appreciated, but not at all needed. I'd prefer to let my work ethic and my service do the talking, nothing else."
