The Op headline is wrong, and

The Op headline is wrong, and the story was misreported.

Your explanation of the gratuity is right on and should have been honored and paid by the patrons.

There was no justification in my post for the pastors actions. You made that up. What I listed was a scripture reference as explanation for a 10% tithe to the church. I explained the tithe to show how unrelated it is to a gratuity. This was far from a justification of the pastors actions.

As to my being a member of her church. That's just a provocative statement that doesn't seek to inform. It's based on a misunderstanding of my post.
