Muslim taxi drivers refusing to take passengers with alcohol.

Reader comment on item: Don't Bring That Booze into My Taxi

The airports are run by the government, or, at least, the Feds supply the air controllers. What about separation of church and state? Isn't this action a support of a particular religion?

Take away their taxi cab license. Pressure is put on pharmacists to fill prescriptions for the morning after pill even though doing so goes against the religious principles of the pharmacist. Why should Muslim taxi drivers get a special dispensation?
Isn't it time to stop coddling the Muslims and to stop bashing the Christians?
