11. I don't feel that's discriminatory, I think it's just pandering.
They're just trying to communicate to the market that they are "good" people, which often means that they're not. I choose not to do business with such establishments for precisely the reason that if you have to tell people that you're moral, then you're probably not. Also, it has been my experience that such "faith-based" businesses tend to dick you over a little more often than secular ones do. To paraphrase a great quote, if you're in a business relationship with a bible-beater, make sure to keep one hand on your wallet at all times.
