FFRF serves up law to pizza joint (November 17, 2017)

A local patron of Johnny Brusco’s New York Style Pizza in Bentonville, Ark., informed FFRF that the restaurant was offering and promoting a 10 percent discount on Sundays to customers presenting a church bulletin.

FFRF Staff Attorney Elizabeth Cavell wrote to the manager to inform him that the deal favored religious customers and denied customers who did not attend church the right to “full and equal” enjoyment of the pizza joint, a violation of the Civil Rights Act. The discount also violated Arkansas state law.

FFRF received a phone call on Nov. 17 from the manager, who communicated that the discount was not being offered anymore.
