Muslim Cashiers and Pork Products
The original article was at Star Tribune To quote from the article;
"In the Muslim world, there is even a stronger taboo against pork than alcohol, said Owais Bayunus, an imam at the Abu Khudra Mosque in Columbia Heights. Wearing gloves will not solve the issue, he said. "There is a school of thought within the Muslim community that if you sell pork or alcohol to someone, then you are contributing to the propagation of a sinful activity," he said. "Many Muslims do not want to see non-Muslims involved in a sinful product."
At Target stores, some Muslim cashiers opposed to selling pork had grown accustomed to waving over other employees whenever they came across bacon, ham or other pork products, even pepperoni pizza."
Needless to say this has produced an uproar. The "Star Tribune" has a blog called the Buzz and this will link you to the emails the newspaper has been receiving on this subject the Buzz
So will Catholics cashiers at Wal-Mart start refusing to scan condoms because they can be used as birth control? What about PETA cashiers?
Will this mean the Muslim congressmen will not be able vote for all the pork spending bills the government put thru congress? See Porkbusters
