Atheist Files Complaint Over Restaurant Church Promo

An atheist is turning up the heat on a Pennsylvania restaurant for giving discounts to churchgoers.

John Wolff, 80, has filed a complaint against Prudhomme's Lost Cajun Kitchen, in Columbia, Pa.

The elderly atheist is upset that the restaurant offers a 10 percent discount to any customer who brings in a church bulletin on Sundays.

Wolf is calling the policy discriminatory because he doesn't go to church.

"It rubbed me the wrong way because the implication is that they reward churchgoers, and I am not one. So, I am not as good as the next churchgoer. That's not true," he said.

The business' co-owner, Sharon Prudhomme, said it's simply a promotion to bring more people in the doors.

"Come on in, grab a bulletin, you don't have to stay at church. You can take it in and still have a nice dining discount. So, everybody's covered," she said.

"I live in America," she continued. "I am an American. I am working hard. We are here seven days a week. I will advertise as I see fit."

The restaurant has also received letters from the Freedom from Religion Foundation demanding it stop the promotion.
