Religious Freedom,...Subjectively

I am pretty subjective about this issue because I have been wearing a Kipa now for more 35 years. I have lived and in Israel for MOST of that time, but remember some problems when I wore my Kipa there in the 70’s, and none when I worked there in the first decade of the 21st century.
So, I would DEFINITELY side with the perspective employee, and probably take the restaurant’s info. (name, address, manager’s name, is it a branch of a national chain?)
I would probably pursue and follow-up on this, because of my perspective. But, like I wrote, I am FAR from objective about this issue.

my rules

The restaurant is run by an owner, not by God. If I don't want a Jew, a Baptist, a negro, a muslim or a blond working for me, I shouldn't be forced to hire them by some government. I should be able to make the rules I want. It is my business. If you don't like it, don't patronize my business. God as the ultimate authority will eventually deal with me.

OK to discriminate in hiring?

I'm sure Hitler would have approved of your statements. Not to mention people in the South in the 1950's who would not let blacks even use the bathroom, and killed them just for being black.
