Albany --  It appears a misunderstanding lead to a whirlwind of rumors.

A few weeks ago, someone sent out an email that said the manager of Albany's Steak-N-Shake  Restaurant told a teenager to stop praying as he was blessing the food of a group he was with, or he would be asked to leave.

An Albany minister says that's not exactly the case. Jim McBride, an executive minister at Sherwood Baptist said the teen apparently asked everyone in the restaurant to bow in prayer, and the manager told the teen that she didn't mind if he prayed, but to please not call the entire restaurant into prayer.

Steak-N-Shake officials said their policy is to allow anyone of any religion to pray, audible or not, in their restaurants.
