Willow Springs Water Park...said church groups could get a $5 discount per child on Mondays — a discount no other group received:
"Leifel Jackson, executive director of the charitable Reaching Our Children and Neighborhoods (ROCAN), asked the water park if the discount would extend to his non-profit. Jackson was told that ROCAN could not receive the discount because it is not a church group.
"… without the discount, Jackson said he couldn’t afford the admission and ROCAN’s planned trip was canceled, crushing some kids’ hopes."
Even restaurants that offer church bulletin discounts must give the same discount to everybody, bulletin or not. And it seems like a bad business plan to turn away 35 kids who would gladly pay the discounted entry fee just because they’re not part of a church group...
...[The park's owner David] Ratliff decided to cancel the discount altogether. He could have extended the Monday discount to all groups. Instead, everyone will just pay full price.
