Like Kim Davis, this woman is ridiculous and IMO they are both motivated by the media monster we've created. Infamy used to take work and dedication to doing something disgusting or horrible. These days you just have to find some hot button social issue, stretch it to ridiculous links and wait for the global coverage and endless donations from other idiots to pour in.

These people are pathetic and, thankfully, the exception and not the rule.

At least not yet. Sadly the social justice movement is taking root in the young and I fear that by the time I leave this earth pronouns like "him" and "her" will be seen as blatant hate speech.

Maybe the silver lining of these publicity seeking dolts is that the public backlash against them will diffuse the silliness happening with the young. One can hope.

If people wanted alcohol to be illegal and the court was circumventing that and forcing people to sell it you'd hear outrage.


Who would want alcohol to be illegal? LOL. Prohibition didn't work.

Exactly why there is no outrage, that's my point the people want alcohol.

Not unlike at all is it?

I'm not Muslim, yet I'm aware that that is one of the tenants of Islam. No booze.

Surely that came up at some point during the conversion process...

Sorry, no. Find another profession if your religion means more than a paycheck.

I can respect that. Even honor it. But to expect special consideration because of her ignorance of her own religion? No.

Oh okay.

My point is this:

A Christian gets fired/fined/jailed for not doing the job due to religious reason = outrage.
A Muslim gets fired/fine/jailed for not doing the job due to religious reason = no outrage.

suspended does not equal jail time.

To which I replied getting suspended is not the same as going to jail, thus the answer to your question about some folks being outraged.

Did ya catch that?

Sounds like she could use a drink.


Something we do agree with.

This has nothing to do with Muslim / Christian, the outrage or lack thereof is due to one being forced on the people and one not. Whenever you force anything you will get outrage.

Yes. There have been outrages over Christians being fired, fined and suspended due to their religion convictions.

AGAIN.

Why does it matter? There will always be outrages. Now do you see the point?

As i quoted from a Muslim website on the previous page , she is not allowed to work where alcohol is served . One option , quit .





(Q.18) Is it permissible for a Muslim to work in places where alcoholic drinks are sold or at entertainment places, without being involved in serving alcoholic drinks or other sinful acts, such as washing dishes and preparing tables, etc.?
It is not permissible in the places where alcoholic drink is sold. Work in entertainment places is not recommended on the premise of ihtiyat luzumi (obligatory precaution)..


She should have quit when she converted .



Ihtiyat luzumi:
Obligatory precaution that must be followed.


Did the meaning of obligatory or must change recently .

Anyway the reason I am asking is because this thread (and I am sure more will come soon) is because of all that Kim Davis crap.

Oh now you are going by insults? Well ok.

All I did was simple stating my observation and comparing (this thread was created because of Kim Davis crap). Yes I have been following twitter and this thread is not new.

Agreed.

I just don't understand how she could interpret it any other way. I certainly don't. I'm no Islamic scholar, yet I know this.

She needs a new career.

If I remember correctly, it's phrased something like "No single drop of alcohol shall pass your lips" or words to that effect...what many, more liberal, Muslims do is take a single drop of alcohol on their finger and flick it away...thus honoring the letter, if not the spirit, of the law.
