By Joseph DeCaro, Worthy News Correspondent
SEARCY (Worthy News)– A Christian restaurant owner is taking more than his kitchen's heat after offering a faith-based discount to his customers.
Steven Rose, the owner of Bailey's Pizza in Searcy, Ark., told TheBlaze that 10 days after posting a 10 percent discount on Facebook for any customer with a church bulletin, he was warned by the Freedom From Religion Foundation that the discount was an act of discrimination.
"The law requires places of public accommodation to offer their services to customers without regard to race, color, religion or national origin," attorney Elizabeth Cavell told KTHV-TV.
But Rose said no one needs to be a churchgoer to receive his faith-based discount.
"I didn't say you had to go to church. I said come in with a church bulletin."
However, Rose has been encouraged by the support showed him after receiving the FFRF complaint, especially from conservative firms that have offered legal assistance.
