Question for my conservative Christian friends.

I have consistently stated that I am not overtly religious, that I don't always know if I even believe in God.

I do know that I believe in people who believe in God.

My question - again for the Conservative Christians in the group:

If you went to a restaurant where the Owner would bring you your food and mock you while you said Grace, (not just other restaurant patrons - but the Owner The Maitra D, and the servers), would you remain in that restaurants membership?

If that ever happened, it would be a perfect time to show God's grace by rather loudly openly praying for that person.  

Being me, I would go back at least one more time and do the same thing.

To further clarify - this is not a one time occurence, it is an everyday thing.

It's restaurant policy.

If it happened every day, I would not go there.  How can a restaurant have a policy that prayer before a meal is not allowed?  All kinds of discrimination going on there.

 Oh a prayer is allowed -

They simply mock you while you do it.

I would just have to loudly pray for them and wait for the applause.

I probably wouldn't patronize such a business. Sounds like they don't really want my money

Is there really a restaurant that mocks patrons for praying?

Id just not go there, they don't need my money. I'd also tell my Christian friends so they could also not go there.

No, I'm speaking for myself, but I would not go to a place where God is not welcome. If that is truly what is going on then, I would speak for God by staying away.

I'm an atheist, but if I were Christian, no I wouldn't go there.  Sounds like harassment.  What exactly do they say when "mocking"?
