Christian restaurants

There's a Christian cafe in Causeway Bay that's apparently really pushy, and let's face it, who wants to be proselytised while they're eating?

If you're that sort of pervert, there's a bunch of places in Wan Chai for that.
But I got to thinking that there's clearly a market for that sort of thing. Maybe it would really be some sort of revelation. The things they could do with a few fish and some bread would be nothing short of miraculous. And think of the marketing slogans available:
"Don't lose your head over our Salome Saturday Specials!"
"WWJD? - Where Would Jesus Dine?"
"It's easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for you to pass up our Rich Man's Cajun Chicken"
Mind you, there could be problems. Themed restaurants are always risky; should you demand all the waitstaff have stigmata, or is that going to be unhygienic? Having the Twelve Food Stations Of The Cross might appear to cut down on staffing, but running that many different buffet areas in the restaurant could take up too much space. Do you provide kosher salt at the table, or use the popular Lot's Wife brand, because there's issues getting an import licence for stuff from Sodom and Gomorrah.

Do you give away a free copy of The Passion Of Christ with every kid's meal? That's the kind of question that only Saint Mel of the Incomprehensible Drink-driving Incident could answer.

For any other suggestions, if you've got an interest in old-time religion and homemade apple pies, please get in touch.
