I can't stand the smell of cinnamon. Maybe I could have refused that when I was a cashier?

I hope those supporting pharmacists who refuse to sell emergency contraception on religious grounds (which even a judge ruled last year to be acceptable) are happy.

Re: Muslim Staff at Marks & Spencer Can Refuse to Sell Alcohol and Pork

Muslims living in the west need to shut the fuck up, integrate into our society, and not cause a scene. Ones that refuse should be lined up and shot on national tv so the rest of their shit eating kind can watch. STAY THE FUCK OUT OF OUR SOCIETY if you hate it so much, and have a merry fucking christmas you heathen cunts.

That shit wouldn't fly in the U.S. for one second. One complaint from the customer and the cashier would be fired.

A doctor once refused to give me the contraceptive pill because it was against his religion. He also looked at me like scum for wanting to protect myself and not over multiply the human race, cocksucker

Re: Muslim Staff at Marks & Spencer Can Refuse to Sell Alcohol and Pork

UPDATE*

Quote:
Customers at Marks and Spencer will not be refused alcohol or pork by Muslim staff after the store reacted to a massive backlash by customers.
Thousands of shoppers threatened to boycott the retailer after Marks and Spencer said it would allow Muslim staff to refuse to sell pork and alcohol because it was against their religious beliefs.
But now Marks and Spencer has apologised and said that Muslim staff who did not want to handle these products would not man tills and would work in other roles such as in clothing or in the bakery.
The issue was revealed after customers at a London branch of Marks and Spencer were told they would have to use another till because the assistant would not be able to serve them pork or alcohol.
At the time Marks and Spencer said staff could refuse to sell these items, based on their religious beliefs.

This led to a huge backlash by thousands of customers who threatened to boycott the store.
Marks and Spencer last night apologised and said it had made a mistake and was not following its internal policies.
In a statement, Marks and Spencer said: “Where we have an employee whose religious beliefs restrict food or drink they can handle, we work closely with our member of staff to place them in suitable role, such as in our clothing department or bakery in foods.
“We regret that in the case highlighted today we were not following our own internal policy.”
Angry customers created a Facebook page, calling on others to boycott the retailer. Some claimed it was creating “division” in communities while others said if this policy was followed they would have to allow Christians who opposed homosexuality to refuse to serve gay customers.
After Marks and Spencer issued its updated statement shoppers posted comments on the Facebook page, saying they had apologised too late.
Michelle Woof wrote: “Marks and spencers have lost my custom this year and forever.ridiculous company run by jobsworths hope the retail sales this xmas at marks and spencers are bad.”
And Alan Skinner said: “We have boycotted M&S today over their policy and did our £400 Christmas food and drink shop at Tesco (instead of M&S) at 06.00 this morning.”
