LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) -- The proprietor of a central Pennsylvania restaurant that made headlines following a challenge to its Sunday discount to anyone showing a church bulletin says the controversy hasn't hurt business.

In fact, Sharon Prudhomme says business is up at Prudhomme's Lost Cajun Kitchen in Columbia, Lancaster County. She says she's also gotten thousands of supportive emails and calls.

About a year ago, the restaurant started offering 10 percent discounts to diners who bring in a current church bulletin on Sundays. Last month, John Wolff of Lancaster County filed a complaint with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, saying the restaurant should not give out discounts based on faith. The commission is investigating.

Prudhomme said the restaurant is standing by the promotion and even plans a T-shirt bearing the word "co-exist."
