OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) -- A server at an Overland Park, Kan., restaurant who got an anti-gay note instead of a tip from a couple he waited on has been getting support online.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1iizcRX ) a couple who ate at Carrabba's Italian Grill in Overland Park recently left a message for their waiter instead of a tip. Their message read in part: "Thank you for your service, it was excellent. That being said, we cannot in good conscience tip you, for your homosexual lifestyle is an affront to GOD."

Friends of the waiter spread word of the note on social media.

Marvin Baker, with Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church in Overland Park, went to Carrabba's Thursday for lunch with his partner to show support for the waiter.
