There is a difference between acting for one's own religious beliefs and in trying to enforce those religious beliefs on other people.
As much as I hate to admit it, I agree with Kamil's original point. If the employees can't scan/handle the same merchandise as everyone else then they should go and find a job where that isn't an issue for them. Target's customers should not have to be inconvenienced to meet an employee's religious requirements. If I was told that I had to scan something myself or go and get into another line if I want to buy my bacon, I'd walk away from my purchases right there and then.
I still think Kamil is a douchebag. But even a busted watch is right two times a day.
The decline of western civilization won't have anything to do with foreign wars...it will have everything to do with the self-apologetic cancer that is sweeping in from Europe under such banners as "liberal" and "progressive". Everyone's entitled to everything, and who the fuck are we to suggest otherwise, because after all, does it hurt you if Betty Burka asks someone else to scan your bacon at the checkout? We must be pig-wallowing fascist cunts and goose-steping Nazi balls of dick snot, and our mothers should all be fucked in the heart with a syphilitic cock.
Minneapolis has been in decline for quite some time, which isn't news to anyone. The airport is probably the only place I've ever felt like a minority - Egyptians and Somalis run the place. Not sure where they came from, but given their age & general inability to comprehend English, I'd be surprised not if none of them were legal immigrants.
