(Columbia) -- A dispute over a Lancaster County restaurant's 10 percent discount for people who bring in a current copy of their church bulletin appears to be settled.

The Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission has recently notified the restaurant and others involved that the promotion can continue at Prudhomme's Lost Cajun Kitchen in Columbia.

The commission's settlement order says discounts have to be offered to all who bring in a bulletin, including atheists.

The discount program had been challenged by a local man who belongs to the Madison, Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation.

The restaurant began the discount as a way to boost business on weekends.
