Discrimination works both ways

Reader comment on item: Muslim Hours at Municipal Swimming Pools in the West

Submitted by Aisha (United States), Apr 14, 2009 at 01:48

So let me get this straight is it OK for a public pool to kick my daughter out of the pool because she is Muslim and will not wear a "regular" bathing suits, AKA string bakini. And instead wears a bathing suit top and dance pants. But it is not ok for a Muslim to rent a local Park for a private party. Even though ANYONE can rent most public park facilities for private parties. Muslims have no choice but to rent the pool or they are discriminated against and can not swim at all.

It is OK that when A group of Muslim families planned a picinic in the park and planned to take out children to the pool, they had rented it out for a private party for a church. But God forbid the Muslims do the same thing.

Sadly in the US you have the freedom to be the lowest of low most immoral person, walk around in a g-string that you call a bathing suit, and hang half naked over a perfect stranger. But the minute you want to behave moraly weather you are Muslim, Christian, or Jewish or any faith, you loose your freedom. It has come to the point that feedom only counts when someone is doing something wild and anti-social.
