in response to reader comment: Cultural Accomodation!!!

I have never known an American Taxi Driver to ask me "Hey, whats in your bag...if you have alcohol, you cannot ride." So, if an American home brewed Muslim, or one from overseas, tells me I cannot ride cause of alcohol in my bag...I make sure the 'better business bureau" hear a complaint from me. What you going to do, leave a disabled (if the person is disabled) on side of road cause he has a bottle of booze in his bag?

Truly Islam is trying to change our way or they would not worry about a"bottle of wine". or "bottle of liquor". The passenger is not breaking a law by having a paid for commodity in their possession. Sometimes I have to laugh at the "little things' they make such a big deal over.

I am Native American and I cannot see Islam trying to bring their Sharia law into my nation. And from paying attention to "happenings" around us...I do not see Christians forcing anything on anyone. They may carry pamphlets and Bible but they do not force it. But Islam is trying to force their religion on the world and they do it with "unseen forces".
