    Muslim Cabbies Refuse to Carry Passengers with Alcohol

    It has become an increasing problem in Minneapolis: Muslim cabbies are refusing to transport customers who are carrying alcohol. They say it goes against their religion. Obviously they are in the wrong profession if doing their job interferes with their religion. IMO of course.

    so... are they also refusing to carry passengers with bags of groceries that might contain ham?? or matzo balls? or cigarettes?? what if you're on your way to a christian church? or what if you don't believe that allah is the one and only true god and mohammed is his prophet??
    are they going to inspect people's bags, frisk them, and grill them about their beliefs and lifestyle before accepting them as a passenger??

    give me a freakin' break. why don't they just only do business with other muslims??? i guess that's where it's leading. just more stuff fractioning america. don't you guys see where this is all heading....???????????

    go ahead, defend and coddle them now... but tomorrow they will turn against you and exclude you. you will see, but then it will be too late.

    Leonard Pitts wrote a good column on this:

    Asking Muslims to do their job isn't `intolerance'

    OK, let's say you fly into Minneapolis-St. Paul. Let's say you're carrying alcohol -- rum from the Caribbean, a Merlot you found in Napa Valley. Let's say you try to hail a cab while carrying said alcohol.

    Good luck. You're going to need it."
