Sharia in Rochester, New York

I keep talking about situations like these becoming more prevalent, and how they are a sure sign of the creep of sharia across America and the lack of a backbone in business when it comes to accommodations for Muslims.

Wegmans, a grocery chain in that area has decided that you, the customer must put up with longer lines, a longer wait and discrimination against you when you legally choose to purchase alcohol or buy pork products.  They hired a young Muslim cashier and have posted a sign saying "If your order contains pork or alcohol product, we respectfully ask that you choose another lane."  There are so many issues at play here that it is difficult to pick the most grievous, suffice to say the question most pertinent is; why did they hire her knowing she would not cashier pork or alcohol?  There must be other jobs available in Rochester that do not entail the handling of alcohol or pork, why didn't she pick one of those?

The regular customers should be outraged at this, they are being discriminated against and forced to use a cashier that won't be offended.  This is a travesty of the civil rights act of 1963 and an affront to those who literally put their lives on the line to guarantee equality for all, especially in the eyes of the law.  Wegmans has changed company policy to accommodate Islamic sharia law, and the spread of sharia is the goal of Islamic supremacists and has been since 632AD.

If you believe this is an isolated example, and that sharia cannot happen here, I have a bridge to sell.

Sign at Wegmans draws attention

It’s a first for Wegmans in this area. They’ve put up a sign asking customers buying pork or alcohol not to use a particular checkout line when a Muslim teenager is on duty as the cashier.
The sign went up a week ago at their Lyell Avenue store.
Wegmans says they haven’t gotten any in store complaints and Wegmans was very upfront about the cashier. They just wouldn’t allow us in the store to talk with her or customers.
Spokeswoman Jo Natale says the cashier is a teen aged girl who wears a head covering. She told her supervisor she was uncomfortable handling those items because of religious reasons. So the store manager who had experience with this type of situation outside of Rochester decided to put up a small sign whenever the girl was at the checkout counter.
No.  When the supervisor was informed that the girl would not handle pork or alcohol she should have been shown the door and told to find another job, not given special accommodations that inconvenienced and discriminated against the regular customers
It says, “If your order contains pork or alcohol product, we respectfully ask that you choose another lane.”
No.  I would take my BBQ ribs and beer to that lane specifically.  Would the store insist I use another lane, would they kick me out of the store, would they make the girl ring me up...questions to be answered, and I hope soon.
Wegmans also says the girl has been coached what to say if customers ask why. People News10NBC spoke with outside the Lyell Avenue Wegmans store said they were okay with it and one even knows Christians who don’t like the idea of serving alcohol.
Christians do not blow up beer gardens in Nigeria or destroy beer warehouses in Turkey, either.
Bernard Thomas said, “I feel like if they’re going to hire her and she’s got to have the job, why shouldn’t we respect her. Just go to another cashier.”
Darlene Hucko said, “I would respect her beliefs and go to the next line if I had alcohol.
Levato said, “You think that’s okay.”
Hucko said, “I think it is okay.”
Dhimmis one and all.  Disgusting.
