Christians refuse to tip waitress because a “woman’s place is in the home”

Christians refuse to tip waitress because a “woman’s place is in the home” October 25, 2016

South Carolina has many great people, but there are still plenty here that are embarrassingly bad. A Christian couple in Greenville, SC refused to tip a waitress and left her this terrible sexist message on a napkin instead. 

Thank you for your excellent service today — you’re a good waitress.

Here’s your tip:

The woman’s place is in the home. Your place is in the home. It even says so in the Bible. You may think that you’re contributing to your household by coming into work, but you’re not. While you’re in here ‘working’ this is the reason your husband must see another woman on his way home from a long day at his work. Because you should be home taking care of the household duties, you may think what you are doing ‘working’ is right, it is really essentially a disgrace to his manhood and to the American family. So instead of coming to your ‘job’ and looking for handouts to feed your family, how’s about going home and cleaning your house and cooking a hot meal for your husband and children, the way your husband and God intended, and help make America great again. Praying for families and our nation.

The waitress who received the note, was heartbroken:

“I felt mortified, embarrassed, humiliated even. I felt hurt, and a bit heartbroken. It is a bit disheartening and discouraging that things like this happen at this day and age.”

Yes, there are many progressive Christians, but at any time, people can use the Bible to justify their bigotry. It was nice to see some Christians condemn this act, but we still have a long way to go.
