Religious Accommodation

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law

Submitted by Rochelle Michaels (Canada), Feb 21, 2008 at 14:24

Long long time ago, minorities were respected and religious accommodations were made, when possible.

Today, all has changed. Religious accommodation has been shoved down our throats with the imminent weather report of lawsuits, riots or murders in the forecast, if accommodations are not met.

To respect the blind is obvious and even Muslim Extremists had nothing to base their nonsense. Religious Laws regarding banking, clothing, alcohol and family practice are more easily disguised as a need but the underlying hope is for the death of that free society.

Scots and Italians surrender to Islam.
17 August 2007

In an effort to ensure that no Muslim doctors ever again try to bomb Glasgow Airport, bureaucrats at Glasgow's public hospitals have decreed that henceforth no staff may eat lunch at their desks or in their offices during the holy month of Ramadan, so that fasting Muslims shall not be offended by the sight or smell of their food. Vending machines will also disappear from the premises during that period.
