So the guy didn't utter a peep about it, had already worked out a means to work around his beliefs without hindering the job, and he did NOT interrupt the the customer's checkout process in any way . . . he was trying to get attention and special treatment? Seems like he was the one doing all the work to make sure the goal of the business was met with as little impact to the customer as possible. Sounds like a pretty good employee to me.

He uttered to someone, his boss, or his co-worker, girl had to stop doing her job to accommodate him, then had to be done a 2nd time at the end of the order if I read correctly. Took up time, made me feel uncomfortable saying the products being sold are unsanitary and the food I and my family consume is filthy, not with his words of course, but with his actions.

You read correctly, they switched twice and she had to cover his bagging duties on both items. It didn't affect my experience at all; and probably took up as much time as it would if the cashier had to turn around to sneeze. I didn't even think about the undertone that my food is unclean.

I do find it funny there are people out there who won't eat pork because it's dirty, but will wipe their a$$ with their bare hand.

Again, tell me what religions (RIGHT NOW) condone of entirely eliminating other religions / taxing others simply because they are not of their religion / wholesale killing non-believers / executing those that leave the religion.
By and large, Jizya has not been practiced since the 18th century. Hardly RIGHT NOW - your caps. It has also been interpereted as a protection tax or as a tax imposed on those who were exempt from mandatory military service, or as permission to practice a non-muslim faith. People have been unfairly taxing each other for centuries. So what?

Do I agree with it? No. I disagree with a lot of things. I don't agree with fatwas either because religion and the legal system should be separate - along with the education system.

As to your other points. Sure. There are religious nut-jobs everywhere. Apostasy and anti-blasphemy laws exist everywhere. A good number belong to very strict sects of Islam. That is not the view of the vast majority of people who practice Islam. Which countries still outlaw apostasy and blasphemy? | Pew Research Center

Heck, anti-blasphemy laws are still on the books in the Bahamas and Massachusetts.

"Section 36. Whoever wilfully blasphemes the holy name of God by denying, cursing or contumeliously reproaching God, his creation, government or final judging of the world, or by cursing or contumeliously reproaching Jesus Christ or the Holy Ghost, or by cursing or contumeliously reproaching or exposing to contempt and ridicule, the holy word of God contained in the holy scriptures shall be punished by imprisonment in jail for not more than one year or by a fine of not more than three hundred dollars, and may also be bound to good behavior."

Islamic countries; Islamic leaders and many Islamic people deny the right for Israel to exist. These same people condone killing Jewish people.
Jizya is still imposed in modern times. Libya and Iraq in 2014; Syria in 2013
Apostate (leaving Islam) is punishable by death in SA and Qatar in 2018. There is widespread support for enforcing the death penalty for apostasy by most muslims in Palestine. It is widely known to not state ones secularism in countries like Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Egypt and Pakistan today for fear of fatwa or untimely deaths. There are support groups in US and Canada for Islamic Apostates.


But hey, keep comparing current day barbarism to Old Testament text and obscure/meaningless leftover laws if that makes you feel better.

One thing I’ve been thinking about as I was one of the first ones to post on this thread......what if we are all wrong and he is not Muslim and he has a hyper sensitive food allergy and just happen to be brown. I mean would this thread even exist if the dude was blond haired and blue eyed?

I think this is a stretch BUT it does offer an alternative to the mans reason for his actions. For those of you in southern Florida or any other place with a heavy Jewish population. Does Jewish bag boys separate your dairy as far as they can from your other groceries?

What's the rule on pork if you sprinkle it with kosher salt. Does it then become OK to one group that doesn't eat pork, and double bad for the other?

Is there such a thing as kosher peanut oil? That way you could fry your pork chops and double the kosher effect.

No, I don't. Does anyone feel comfortable around people who aren't the same as themselves? Probably not. Do the majority of us practice tolerance in order to make a peaceful society work? Definitely yes. Those on the left fringe shouting at those on the right fringe do not represent the majority sonewhere in between. The guy in the grocery store, NOT making a big deal about his lawful right to practice his religion, was definitely in the middle and contributing to a peaceful society.
