...serve you caviar. They don't serve anyone caviar.

In the case of your Muslim owned restaurant, they are not discriminating by selling only halal foods. They sell what they sell equally to everyone.

Likewise, a cake shop could not be forced to sell muffins. But they can be forced to sell everyone cakes.

          Nobody is asking the bakers to make something they don't normally make. Nobody is asking the bakers to serve bacon. Or caviar. It is a matter of discrimination against clients. Amadeus

                  If my shop bakes cakes, anyone who wants to buy a cake can buy one. They can't demand that I get some rare, exotic flour that I don't normally use. They can buy a cake off of the list of cakes I... more
