A restaurant receives praise and anger for its policy of giving 15% off if your table says grace.
And some people wondered aloud if the restaurant’s practice amounts to discrimination. The Department of Justice says that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination based on religion in a public accommodation, such as a restaurant. Whether the diner is in violation isn’t immediately clear.
We put in a call to the DOJ for clarification and will update this post if we hear back.
What do you think? Is this discrimination on the basis of religion?
