Christ washes feet, while this “Christian” stiffs servant and then got her fired

This fabulous controversy involves a barely paid waitress that a “Christian” stiffed on a tip, in true Pharisee-esque behavior:

Last Friday, after evening services, Bell and her congregation headed to Applebee’s for dinner as they did on many nights.
But a disagreement over the establishment’s auto-gratuity of 18% for parties of 8 or more would soon propel the pastor to the heights of Internet infamy.
“I give God 10% why do you get 18,” Bell wrote on her credit card receipt after crossing out the tip amount she was obliged to pay.
Okay wait, let’s not even TALK about how Pharisee-esque a move this pastor’s bullshit was. Let’s talk about the shitty conclusion where her outrage got the waitress fired. Yeah, the waitress, who served Bell and deserves a tip gets fired, while the pastor, who is doing a SHITTY job of representing her Jebus, gets to keep her job where she gets paid in an offering plate to stand at a pulpit and pretend some imaginary man in the sky is speaking through her:
A server working at the restaurant uploaded a scan of the receipt to Reddit . . . Pastor Alois Bell . . . phoned up the restaurant and asked to have everyone involved fired . . . Though Bell was denied her request to have a brand new staff awaiting her the next time she dined at her neighborhood Applebee’s, she did succeed in getting at least one person fired: The waitress who posted the receipt online.
The super-cunt herself
Let’s talk about how the waitress, who ISN’T in any way wrong for having shared this joke, is outclassing Bell by blaming herself for her action (which is blameless if you ask me). Meanwhile the preacher is acting like SUCH a fucking victim here that she has to pay the woman who waited on her fatass self. Let’s talk about how she not only dragged her into the fiasco, but then had her fired so that she suffers for her extremely unchristian behavior. Unlike Bell, the waitress makes shit in wages for actual hard work, so pay her for serving you!
But let’s do what we do here at Bible Studies, and use the bible against the thumpers. Remember, Christians aren’t supposed to blast their holy show behavior, which is what she did.
“Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven . . . And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.
Matthew 6:1,5
She didn’t go get the food and serve the servant as Jesus would do. No, she didn’t help at all, but burdened and then hurt the one who served her, like a true Pharisee:
The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them. Everything they do is done for people to see.
Matthew 23:2-5a
So she doesn’t get to bitch that her behavior was blasted further than she intended, because:
There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.
Luke 12:2-3
So own up to your stupidity, you sanctimonious shitbag! Incidentally, you give “God” 10%? Or people give YOU 10% because they think they’re giving it to God when they do so? Yeah, I think you’re overpaid, sister.
