Islam på rulleskøjter

Hvis man ikke kan lide lugten i bageriet – ja, hvad så?

Da jeg selv tilhører religionen “Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster” vil jeg ikke køre bil med sikkerhedssele – det ville se fjollet ud…

(AP) “A Muslim woman claims that a Connecticut roller-skating rink discriminated against her because it wouldn’t allow her to skate in her headscarf. Marisol Rodriguez-Colon, 40, said she was “mortified” when she and another female relative showed up for a niece’s birthday party at the Ron-A-Roll rink in Vernon and were barred at the door.

The venue’s rules, posted at the entrance, read: “No Hats. No Headwear. No Exceptions.” – Colon said her religious hijab shouldn’t count under that policy — and tried to appeal to a rink manager. “We wear this for religious reasons,” Colon said. “But they didn’t want to hear that.” The manager, Colon said, gave the women two choices: take off the headscarves, or wear a helmet over them. Taking off the hijabs was “not an option,” Colon told WTIC-TV in Hartford. She said she has worn the traditional headscarf for 16 years and has it on “wherever I go.” – She and the other relative went back to their car and missed the party. – “I wear this with pride,” Colon said. “I was mortified — by asking someone to wear a helmet you are actually ostracizing us. “You are singling us out and showing everyone there is an issue — that something is wrong with these two women.”

Ron-A-Roll management issued a statement spelling out its “no headwear” policy. It said helmets are offered for safety purposes. “You are not allowed — you are not welcome here. That is what that says to me,” Colon said of the statement. She said she was insulted that the rink would deny entrance to people “because of what they believe and what they are wearing because of those beliefs.”  – The Council on American-Islamic Relations said yesterday it filed a complaint with Connecticut’s Human Rights Commission.”

  1. Connecticut’s Human Rights Commission er et af de fora vi gerne var foruden. Colon-kællingen er lige så fuld af lort, som hendes navn antyder.

  2. “No Hats. No Headwear. No Exceptions”

    Det er en regel, der gælder for alle, og dermed det modsatte af diskrimination. Når muslimen så ønsker, nej, kræver, at blive undtaget fra reglen, så er det sådan set hende, der ønsker diskrimination/forskelsbehandling.

    Endnu et af de centrale begreber skrider. I forvejen er ord som racisme, fascisme, ytringsfrihed, anstændighed, etc. blevet udvandet til ukendelighed, så de nu i mange tilfælde bruges i en betydning, der er stik modsat af deres oprindelige betydning. Nu er der så nogen, der mener, at det er diskriminerende ikke at diskriminere mellem muslimer og andre ved håndhævelsen af en helt banal sikkerhedsregel på en skøjtering. I første omgang er det komisk, men på længere sigt betyder det, at der er endnu et fænomen, vi ikke kan sige fra over for, fordi vi ikke længere har et ord for det.
