"NTA. Discipline your son for not bowing down to their religious beliefs? Ridiculous. If any of the ILs reach out to you directly, I suggest replying 'That we (DH, Luke, and myself) agreed to allow you to monopolize the beginning of dinner with saying grace does not mean we must adhere to your religious beliefs. If you don't want to have a bite of food until after you've said your prayers, then you don't have to. Luke wanted to eat and so he did. He didn't harm you in any way. The fact that you, an adult, tried to shame a child for eating is the wrong-doing here and you owe Luke an apology.'" 👏
