    Turn it around. Would you consider is discrimination if everyone who didn’t pray got the discount, and only those that prayed paid full price? In effect, a penalty for praying…

    All they’ve done is tell people how to save money on their meals – by appearing to be praying.

    Technically, any discount is discrimination. Whether it be for good or bad, allowing one person to pay less for their goods or services than another is discriminating behavior. But as a restaurant owner I reserve the right to offer incentives to any customer for whatever reason. There is no malicious intent here, so who cares? If a client doesn’t want to pray and objects to paying full fare, they can go elsewhere to eat.
