A Christian pastor, Alois Bell, stiffs a waitress in God's name at an Applebee's in St. Louis. Another waitress, atheist Chelsea Welch, posts the cheque on Reddit. The pastor gets Applebee's to fire the waitress.
Applebee's claims they fired Welch for posting Alois Bell's name publicly in violation of company policy, despite that other employees at the same restaurant did exactly the same thing two weeks ago and kept their jobs.
Please do express your thoughts here. More importantly, please express them to Applebee's on this petition and mention how this rather uneven treatment of an atheist may influence your choice of where (or not) to dine out.
