10:11 – The Winston-Salem restaurant that had been giving a 15% discount for praying publicly has discontinued doing so. Apparently the owner got a nastygram from a national atheist group pointing out that it was a violation of federal civil rights laws to charge atheists more than religious people. So the owner stopped giving the discount, fearing that she’d be sued if she continued doing so.

I think the whole thing is stupid. Businesses and individuals should be free to discriminate in favor of or against anyone they please. It’s government that must be completely neutral.
