    Sharia Law in Minnesota?

    Will Minnesota give in to the Somali immigrants and allow them to refuse, as an employee to handle bacon as a cashier, or refuse any customer with objectional items as a cabbie such as alcohol, dogs (including guide dogs for the blind)?

    Isn't there a difference between Sharia law and respecting one's religious beliefs?

    There is a difference when someone signs up as a Cab Driver and then wants to ignore our handicap laws because his religion says so. Or if someone wants to be a cashier but will not check out groceries because they are religiously objectionable.

    So, the outcome is between the employer, employee and U.S. law - not Sharia law. Right?

    Yes but the problem starts when the Muslim goes to court and claims freedom of religion and forces the employer to accomodate. An example is a lady worked at Disney World and wanted to wear a head scarf while working as a Disney Character. It was not part of the costume and she went to court saying that she was unjustly fired because of religious belief.

    Man, this old E-mail is still making the rounds . OK to set the record straight the cashiers were told , fine if you don't want to handle bacon we have other jobs open . The cabbies were told to take dogs and booze or find another line of work . hope this helps

    Exactly, Jews have many of the same rules as Muslims do, as in dietary laws etc.
    Sharia is hardly a threat to the US. We have a constitution.
