Paul Prather: How you tip a waitress speaks to your beliefs

It was a small matter, maybe. Still, Christians took another hit. I'm talking about the performance of the Rev. Alois Bell on Jan. 25 in a St. Louis Applebee's. After her meal, the minister crossed out an 18 percent tip on her bill. She was with a large party, and the restaurant's policy is to automatically add a gratuity if there are more than eight diners in a group.
