That incident is totally unacceptable. I wonder if a christian went to a muslim country, got a job in a supermarket and refused to sell a koran to a muslim. Would that happen? I doubt it. The person involved should be sacked immediately.
This is clearly unacceptable, especially as Islam teaches tolerance for other religions, read this interesting article on the subject click here
This does remind me of a girl in my local co-op who will not touch alcohol, if you want to buy any you have to wait for another till, or if there is noone you have to pass the bottles across the scanner yourself. I don't think she's a Muslim, she's white and doesn't wear a head-dress. Perhaps she doesn't want to server alcohol she shouldn't work in an off-licence.
If the shop assistant does not want to do parts of her job, for which she will have signed a contract, she is perfectly at liberty to resign and If she does not like living in a country where Christians practice, she has the freedom to leave whenever she wants to. She will benefit from the protection of the State and from help is she is out of work, so she can jolly well accept our ways or naff off elsewhere.
Gandalf.. The expression should be "naff orff" (right Royal one), but on this occasion I think the shop manager should be a bit more forceful and tell her to.... Maybe the FE is about so I will leave it to the imagination what the manager/ess should say.
