A couple in Kansas City refused to tip their server at a local Carrabba's Italian Grill, deciding instead to leave a demeaning note.

“Thank you for your service, it was excellent,” the couple wrote on the back of the check. “That being said, we cannot in good conscience tip you, for your homosexual lifestyle is an affront to GOD. Fags do not share in the wealth of GOD, and you will not share in ours. We hope you will see the tip your faggot choices made you lose out on, and plan accordingly. It is never too late for GOD's love, but none shall be spared for fags. May GOD have mercy on you.”

The 20-year-old server's mother also hosts at the restaurant, KCTV 5 reported.

Carrabas said in a statement that “We embrace diversity and believe in treating everyone with respect,” but did not say what action, if any, would be taken if the couple returned.

Reacting to the incident, Dr. Marvin Baker and his partner went to the restaurant on Thursday and asked to be seated in the waiter's section.

“I was angry,” Baker said. “I said this is not Christian as I know it.”

Additional supporters said they planned on visiting the restaurant on Friday.
