Mark 13:13 “You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.”
An Arkansas pizza parlor owned by a strong Christian who offered a discount on Sundays to anyone who brought in a church bulletin has been dealing with harassment and threats for his refusal to cave to anti-Christianist demands.
Bailey’s Pizza even received a bomb threat delivered through their Facebook page.
“Better get the bomb squad out,” one of the comments read. “Stand fast and get blown up quicker,” it also read. Police are investigating the comment as a legitimate threat.
Shop owner Steven Rose said that despite the threats from the anti-Christian organization Freedom From Religion Foundation saying he was violating the Civil Rights Act by offering the discount, there’s no discrimination.
The church bulletin discount is just one of many offered to the community. The discount does not require anyone to be a part of the church whose bulletin is brought in.
Advocates for Faith and Freedom, who is representing the pizza parlor in any legal actions, says the attack of the anti-Christianists is backfiring.
“The majority of the responses to the promotion have been positive,” it stated. “Bailey’s Pizza has received enthusiastic support from the local community and around the country. Some people have come from other states to dine at Bailey’s Pizza and show their support. One Pennsylvania gentleman purchased 150 dollars’ worth of pizza each day for a week, for delivery to different organizations, such as the police and fire departments.”
