What about the cabbies rights?

Reader comment on item: No Islamic Law in Minnesota, for Now

Submitted by Nissan Raclaw (Israel), Oct 17, 2006 at 07:14

I am glad that the regulations were not changed to give Muslims refusing to carry alcohol a free pass (and what if a member of the Christian Identity "Church" refused to take Blacks in his cab on "religious" grounds?). However, I do not understand why Dr. Pipes and the FMC want to revoke the cabbies' licenses altogether. They have a right - if they are privately owned cabs - to refuse to pick up passengers for whatever reason, in my opinion -- and to suffer the economic consequences such as going to the end of the line.
