Former US Marine Dana Morales is a server at  Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, NJ. After serving a table of four and expecting a tip on a $94 check, she received a note on the credit card slip reading “I’m sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle and the way you live your life.” Their book seems to say something about this:

Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce
you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to

A waitress does her job and expects to be compensated based solely on the quality of service. If these people felt that they were unable to do that then they should have gone elsewhere. Perhaps the next server will be wearing a Star of David. It is their lifestyle that is repugnant. They live their lives imposing their religion on everyone else. Their approval is neither solicited nor required.

A happier ending.

The enraged waitress posted the receipt with the message on Facebook and received an enormous outpouring of support. She also received about $1,000 in donations, some of which she intends to donate to the Wounded Warrior project.
