    Now the camp should get some nice bank from people who explicitly support the idea of an agnostic/atheist camp. They get what they want, Christian BBQ guy gets what he wants (or rather doesn't get what he doesn't want). Everyone walks away satisfied.

    Or someone sues.

    It's a science camp. Did he really think they all believed in Jeebus?

    Oh go fuck yourself.

    So this guy is a bigot because he decided to not donate to a cause he doesn't agree with? Go die in a completely random and senseless accident that will mean absolutely nothing in the overall context of the universe.

    Read the article. He never bothered reading the flyers he had been given until the night of their event apparently.

    An hour into the fund raiser it is brought to his attention that the fund raiser is for a camp for children of Atheists. He had 3 weeks to do research to see what kind of science camp he was helping support. He could've just let the fund raiser happen, and decline any events in the future, ya know, like an adult would do.

    I never commented on any other part of the story, I was just outraged over them labeling this guy as a bigot. So now you're entitled to charitable donations, and if someone disagrees with your organization they're a bigot? If they had said he was in breach of contract or something along those lines for canceling at the last minute, so be it. But no, that's not good enough... they had to make themselves out to be the victims of bigotry.

    That's fine... I'm not taking the owner's side. As I stated above, the thing that pissed me off was them calling him a bigot.

    I'll guarantee you he would've kept his yap shut and his money right where it was if he had discovered that many of the volunteers were Muslims.

    Just another hypocrite and a coward who picks the soft targets.

    This guy was fine helping out a generic science camp. Nothing here says he was initially under the impression it was a Christian science camp. The group hosting the camp is the one that injected philosophy (which is what atheism is) into the mix... if it was purely about science there's no reason to state it's ran mostly by atheists. The restaurant owner is a dolt and an asshole for not doing research and canceling at the last minute, but not wanting to support a philosophy-based charity he disagrees with does not make him a bigot. That's like saying an atheist store owner who doesn't want to contribute to a Christian basketball camp is a bigot.

    The Christian Science reference was a joke... because Christian Science is an oxymoron.

    All science is generic... it's science. Science is generic and atheistic by it's very definition.

    I agree that it's not a matter of bigotry... because you can't be bigoted against a non-belief or a philosophy.

    It's more a matter of narrow-mindedness.

    That store owner would absolutely be a bigot if he withdrew a donation he had already made if he did so based on the fact that he discovered that he erroneously donated to a cause which was staffed by Christians.

    No it's not. Science and philosophy are separate for a reason, and until science disproves the core concept of Christianity, they are not an oxymoron.

    Or agnostic by definition? This science camp could have not involved any philosophy, just like a basketball camp hosted by a Christian group could focus solely on basketball... however it's not crazy to assume that a camp hosted by a certain philosophy-based group would include a certain amount of indoctrination by that group. Again otherwise what's the point of identifying their beliefs in the pamphlets this moron decided not to read?

    There's nothing wrong with narrow-mindedness when it comes to charity. People donate to causes they believe in. Is it narrow-minded to only donate to an atheist-based organization and not a Christian-based one?

    No he wouldn't. You're acting under the assumption that the money was that charity's to begin with, and the restaurant owner took it away from them. Not donating to a charity does not equal being intolerant. If someone was denied employment or service based on their religion or lack thereof, that would be intolerant. The restaurant owner was reasonable to think that since it was stated that the camp was ran by an atheist-based group, that the kids in that camp might experience a level of indoctrination to a belief he disagreed with. He didn't fight to get the camp closed, he simply decided he didn't want his money going towards something involving that specific philosophy.

    Otherwise we're all intolerant of every charity we've never donated to, and the only way to end that would be to donate to a pool, and have the money handed out to random charities by lottery.

    I'll take your word on that, since Christians are the easiest targets in the world.

    That depends entirely on where you live. Christianity is despicably powerful in Uganda, for example.

    They have this practice called feesting. Where a man places his whole arm into another man's a-nus. It's so painful they have to take drugs.

    But they enjoy it.

    The thing is, in ultra conservative Broken Arrow Oklahoma, this was probably the best thing for his business.

    There is a school right down the road, Rhema, that basically charges $20,000 for a degree in teaching people how to spread the word of god.

    When all the chick-fil-a shit was goin down, there were lines around the block at each one from the Christians.

    None of the acts he listed were male-exclusive. The best part of the video, though, was him recommending that parents remove their children from the room after about 5 minutes (edited down) of explicitly describing and showing photos of all these extreme sexual acts. I forgot what act was introducing next, but the warning was hilariously belated.

    He agreed to let them use his restaurant and then reneged on the deal at the last moment, leaving them with no place to hold their function. This wasn't just about him cancelling a check he had written.

    Did they really? I never saw the video. I just heard the audio from it.
