+John Paul Taylor
The details of the case are very, very well known. The Pastor in question is a cheat. She has a "congregation" of 15 people, half of which are her family. She takes 10% of their income and gives it to her "church", which is a store front. She then pays this to herself. She then pays the church 10% of what the church pays her, to avoid a little tax. She then pays this 10% back to herself.
It's a huge racket.
She used that 10% that she pays her church to pay herself as an excuse for not paying the non-optional
18% service charge on a large party.
When it was made public, she then called the restaurant and demanded that the entire staff be fired.
When the news got involved, she claimed it was all a lapse of judgement and she was sorry. YES. SORRY SHE WAS CAUGHT BEING A DICK. She would not have changed her mind if she wasn't caught.
She's probably done this same thing before. However, now that it's public she might not do it again.
The server has a multitude of job offers in the area because she was the victim (and yes, posting the signature on the receipt was stupid, and wrong, but not malicious)
The whole thing comes from reddit /r/atheism, where it's common knowledge that certain people use their "faith" to justify being shitty. Most servers will tell you that the worst tips come on a sunday after people have come from church. Probably they feel justified witholding money from a single mother or girl working through college because they gave to their church, paying for their pastor's SUV and airconditioned home.
