Comment: "My Name is Blasphemed among the Heathen because of You"

(See in situ)


"My Name is Blasphemed among the Heathen because of You"

Jesus Himself said that the worker is worthy of his wages (Matthew 10:10; Luke 10:7). Paul teaches the same thing in 1 Corinthians 9:6-14 and 1 Timothy 5:18.

Waiters and waitresses get treated like dirt so much of the time: often paid half the minimum wage, left with poor tips or even no tips, and forced to pay income tax on tips even if they haven't actually earned them. (Does anyone remember Ron Paul's "Tax-Free Tips Act" legislation that our Congress refused even to entertain?)

As a Christian who takes my Christianity seriously, I find the actions of both the "pastor" and Applebee's despicable. I intend to get in touch with her church and let her know what I think. I will also be getting in touch with Applebee's to let them know that their firing of Chelsea Welch has cost them at least one customer.
