Many believed it was discriminatory.
This photo of a receipt went super viral on Facebook a few weeks ago. It was posted by a Florida radio station who were shocked when they noticed the receipt included a 15% discount for praying in public.
The receipt is from a restaurant in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, called Mary's Gourmet Diner. Co-owner Mary Haglund said the discount was meant to inspire customers to be thankful.
As the photo of the receipt went more viral, more users started to weigh in on whether or not they felt like the discount was fair to non-religious customers. The local news interviewed Haglund.
The restaurant had been giving out the discount for the last four years and has never advertised it.
