The law is one thing

Reader comment on item: Muslim Taxi Drivers vs. Seeing-Eye Dogs
in response to reader comment: The Supremacy of the Law

Submitted by scully (United States), Mar 21, 2012 at 17:23

Of course the law is supreme and must be obeyed, But that begs the question of why these folks feel the need to knowingly take on jobs in conditions that will go against their alleged religious practices. Why does a man become a cab driver in a community which provides for the blind with seeing eye dogs? Why does a woman who eats Halal food and says she cannot touch meat products that are not, get a job as a checkout girl in a market that sells non-Halal meat? Why do taxi drivers line up in the airport cab lines only to refuse service to anyone carrying duty-free alcohol?

This is the greater, and I think more important, question that needs to be carefully examined.
