Mary’s Gourmet Diner is back in the news. You might recall our previous story, linked here. This time, Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart returns to Mary’s for a funny story. Love him or hate him, he takes more shots at the radical left than pretty much anyone on TV. This time, his target is the atheists.
A little background: Mary’s Gourmet Diner offers a unique discount. Patrons get 15% off their check if they pray before their meal. As you can imagine, atheists weren’t too happy about it. But rather than take their business elsewhere, the Freedom From Religion Foundation decided to take a stand against this “civil rights violation.”
Jordan Klepper, a Daily Show correspondent, savagely mocks Freedom From Religion’s former PR Director in the above video. It’s no surprise why: Barker makes ludicrous claims comparing Mary’s prayer discount to Jim Crow Laws. At one point, Barker even compares this small discount to genocide.
Needless to say, the folks at The Daily Show make Dan Barker and his acolytes look like fools, and they made us laugh. Check out the video above for the hilarious segment.
