A Christian family did exactly the opposite of what Jesus commands of us this week when they refused to tip a lesbian waitress because of her ‘pride’ tattoo. Server Samanta Heaton was horrified when she read their receipt which noted a $0 tip and a message: “Can’t tip someone who doesn’t love Jesus! Bad tattoo.”
“I went above and beyond for this couple, and for them to leave that kind of hurt,” Heaton told the Rock River Times. “Like, I have bills to pay too.” Heaton did not discuss her sexuality with the family, and feels as if the children are being taught how to discriminate from a young age.
“The kids are going to be under the impression that it will be okay to discriminate against anybody.” Samantha also clarified that she does, in fact, “love Jesus.” “I myself am a Christian. And, as a Christian, ’thou shall not judge.’ No matter how someone looks, you should love them for what’s in their heart and how they treat you—not for what is on the outside.” She called the note “plain rude and uncalled for.”
“I am sorry this happened,” wrote one woman on Heaton’s Facebook post detailing the incident.
“A true Christian would not do this.”
