Companies make choices like this all the time. They choose to not hire smokers, they choose to not service some areas, they choose to not service some makes of vehicles, they choose to not deal with other companies based on that companies other holdings.

If a cab company doesn't want to transport alcohol, then it doesn't have to. They don't even have to say it's because of religion. They could say "we don't transport nutter butter bars" and you can't make them do it.

I build high dollar performance engines in my spare time and in the summer. I only build U.S. v6's v8's and v12's. I don't do Jap 4 cylinders...and you can't make me do it.

It's my company and as long as I am not in violation of the civil liberties act or the disability act then I can choose who or what I want to work with.

You are correct. However, taxi franchises & licenses (especially for an airport) are a different story. You're obligated to serve the public in exchange for the access to a controlled marketplace.

If the government granted you a franchise to have the only garage adjacent to I-75 from da bridge to da soo, and you declared that I'll only tow / fix American V6/V8/V12s you'd find yourself replaced - and quickly.

Actually I just said that the woman, by virtue of being in our country, had a choice and had obviously made hers. My mom is from the era where a woman's choices were limited. She really saw this woman as living a form of slavery and not a choice in religion.
