Pizza and Jesus: Domino’s delivery man upsets customers by passing out gospel tracts

Credit: WTHR Article By TJ Holmes // EEW Magazine News

Share Would you like your pizza delivered with a side of faith? Some Indiana customers are saying they don’t.

An Indianapolis Domino’s Pizza delivery man has been instructed to stop passing out gospel tracts whilst delivering customers’ orders after some local residents were upset by this practice.

“Here's your pizza, here's your two liter, here's your blessing,” said the deliveryman named Steven according to patron Andrea Stone in an interview with NBC-affiliate WTHR channel 13 News. She wasn’t expecting to receive her favorite pie with religious literature.

Last week on Facebook, the annoyed pizza lover posted an image of the pamphlet she got, which says, “Eternal life is a free gift.”

"Honestly, at first, I was just kind of dumbfounded. I didn't know what to say, I just kind of took my pizza and went inside. And as I sat and thought about it, I got more and more irritated,” she explained.

So why is Steven suddenly aiming to give Domino’s customers spiritual food in addition to their natural food?

Well, he told WTHR that two weeks ago, he was shot at on the job, which changed his thinking about life. This marked shift in his mentality compelled him to share his faith with others—a move select patrons are pushing back against.

"You know, it's not an anti-Christian thing, it's an anti-proselytization time thing. I'm a paying customer. I don't want a side of your religion when I'm ordering pizza," Stone said.

She need not worry. Steven won’t be doing that anymore, since the director of operations from Domino’s asked him to stop handing out the pamphlets.

Customer Christina Watson says she too was shocked by it all.

"To just be on company time, to walk up and try to promote your version of Christianity or Catholicism or whatever your religious beliefs are, I find that invasive, I find it intrusive and I find it slightly rude," said Watson.

Looks like Steven will have to find other ways to witness off the clock.
