SEARCY, Ark. – The Christian owner of an Arkansas pizza parlor received a warning letter from atheists for offering discounts to customers who bring church bulletins to the restaurant.
Steven Rose is owner of Bailey’s Pizza—a small, down-home restaurant in Searcy, Arkansas. The pizza parlor offers customers an old-fashioned ambiance, something Rose describes as an “old school country atmosphere.”
Rose, a Christian, says his restaurant, which opened last month, features a wall with a variety of verses from the Bible.
“God is the center of our lives,” a plaque on the Scripture wall says, “so our scripture wall is at the center of Bailey’s Pizza!”
“Take time to read the scriptures others have written,” the plaque continues, “and if you want—ask your waitress for use of our markers to add your own.”
During a weekend last month, Rose invited the restaurant’s patrons to bring church bulletins to the pizza shop on Sunday and receive a 10% discount.
“Happy Sunday, y’all!” a July 20 post on the restaurant’s Facebook page stated. “Bring in your church bulletin and receive 10% off. We open at 11:00. Have a blessed day.”
