Cruel Christians in North Carolina leave a gay waitress a Bible verse calling for the death of homosexuals in place of a tip.
North Carolina waitress Alexandra Judd reports a group of women she served for lunch Tuesday morning left her a “hateful message” in lieu of a tip.
Judd posted a picture online of the bill from the group’s visit to her Charlotte restaurant on Tuesday. The photo shows an abbreviation for the Old Testament verse Leviticus 20:13 listed under “tip.”
The King James version of the Old Testament verse reads:
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
In addition, the bottom of the receipt had a message for her as well:
Praying for you!
It is not clear whether the good Christian ladies were praying for Judd’s death, or some imaginary deliverance from being gay. Either way, it is despicable.
Understandably, Judd said she was infuriated and hurt by the “hateful gesture,” explaining:
I never expected a hateful gesture like this. I’ve had a guest leave me a pamphlet to their church as a tip one time, but I didn’t feel as if they were being hateful towards me. The ladies that came in were very rude, and would hardly talk to me – but I never expected this.
I’ve heard of people leaving fake money, or writing funny stuff in the tip spot of a check but never believed it would happen to me, in the way that it did.
Unfortunately, Judd is correct. Many Christian have a nasty habit of abusing wait staff with fake tips in the form of religious tracts disguised as money.
Indeed, ask any server who has worked a shift on Sunday after church gets out. Almost every server will have a horror story about at least one cheap, mean, self-righteous Christian being abusive in some way.
As for North Carolina, currently the state is at ground zero for anti-gay, Christian hate. A draconian new law, HB2, known officially as the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act, dictates which bathrooms transgender people are permitted to use, and prohibits local governments from enacting anti-discrimination protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity, effectively promoting discrimination and bigotry against the LGBT population in the state.
To her credit, Judd reports she has joined in rallies protesting the new legislation.
