Sexuality Based Tipping: North Carolina Patrons Leave Bible Verse And Prayer Instead Of Cash

A North Carolina waitress recently discovered that instead of leaving money for her tip, a couple of diners offered an unsolicited prayer and left a Leviticus verse instead. For waitress Alexandra Judd, the customers targeted her for her sexuality being a lesbian and the bible verse is particularly spiteful - it calls for death to gay people.
Judd, who works for Zada Janes located in Charlotte's Plaza Midwood area, was infuriated with she considers to be a hateful gesture. Apparently, the diners wrote on the tip portion of the bill a bible passage from Leviticus 20:13 which reads, "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."
The diners even added a note at the bottom of the bill saying "Praying for you."
Venting her frustration over the offending note, Judd posted a photo of the bill on her Facebook account, but she erased the card details and the name of the customer respecting the customer's privacy according to YahooNews. In her post, Judd wrote announced that she does not need anyone praying for her because she has want she wants out of life.
Judd admits that the turn of events caught her off-guard as she did not expect the discriminatory act to happen, living in a more tolerant age. Judd recounts that the ladies who left the note were rude and didn't seem to want to talk to her, reports WNCN.
North Carolina has recently approved an anti-LGBT legislation, a move that is seen by many to be a step backward for the LGBT community who are striving for equality. In particular, LGBT residents of the state must use the bathroom based on their birth certificate's indicated sex and not their orientation or identity.
