||wouldn't it be ok for the non religious person to make a beracha for you but not kiddush? since kiddush is sanctifying the shabbat, it would not be appropriate for him/her to sanctify the shabbat if they do not observe the shabbat.
but the hamotzi? why would this not be ok for him/her to make hamotzi for you?

Message: Why can't a non-observant Jew motzi me in a bracha? Let's say I go to a relative's house and he's not so frum, you know traditional Syrian but not Shomer Shabbat. Am I yotzeh with his kiddush on Shabbat? What about Hamotzi?
Reply: Make your own Kiddush & Hamotzie. How can he be Motzie you if he is not a religious Jew?!
