In what could be considered the bravest possible move in today’s progressive society, a North Carolina restaurant is offering customers a 15 percent discount if they make a point of praying before they eat.
Mary’s Gourmet Diner in Winston-Salem, N.C., recently began offering a special “grace” discount, ABC 13 reported. The family-owned restaurant is already at the center of a wave of local controversy.
