About "Christians who don't tip"

There is one who scatters, yet increases more;
And there is one who withholds more than is right,
But it leads to poverty.

The generous soul will be made rich,
And he who waters will also be watered himself.

The people will curse him who withholds grain,
But blessing will be on the head of him who sells it.

Proverbs 11:24-26

The Blaze reports on one pastor's effort in Tennessee:
A pastor has opened up an online forum for waiters and waitresses in Tennessee to anonymously vent about the low tips and poor treatment they received from Christian customers.

“Sundays Are the Worst,” a website created by Chad Roberts, lead pastor at Preaching Christ Church in Kingsport, Tenn., offers “a place of pure honesty and testimony” for restaurant staff to share the frustration they’ve experienced as a result of interacting with people after church.

The idea for the site came last year after Roberts heard about the St. Louis pastor who famously wrote, “I give God 10 percent — why do you get 18?” on an Applebee’s receipt. After that incident went viral, Roberts and his staff members decided to take action.
Which got us thinking:
  • Assume, for the sake of discussion, that half attend a Church service on any given Sunday.
  • Assume, further, that half of them eat lunch out after Church.
  • That means, on any given Sunday, 22.5 million evangelical Christians eat lunch in a restaurant.
    • (90/2)/2 = 22.5
  • Which means, over the course of a year, evangelical Christians eat 1.17 BILLION after Church meals in resturants.
    • 22.5*52=1,170
In other words, ten Christians tip poorly and it makes national news; 1,169,999,990 Christians tip properly and no one says a word.
