    Good on them for respecting this young girl's religious problems. More importantly, to me, it is nice to see that this was not blown up into something stupid.

    oh, that's very different.

    giving someone Rosh Hashanah, or Easter, or Id, or some other very important holiday off, is just common courtesy & respect.

    allowing an employee to have their own special "no alcohol or pork" check out line, I think is going waaay too far.

    just like the Muslim tax drivers in Minnesota, who want to be able to refuse to transport folks from the airport who have alcohol in their luggage in the trunk of the car. that's just bull****.

    what's next? Kosher-only taxis? no beef-product checkout lines for Hindus?

    So, some (legally and morally sound) religious accommodations are okay, but not others. Got it.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    allowing someone to NOT work on one of their most important religous holidays, is one thing.

    actually having your religious views imposed on someone else's business, is very different.

    Halaal-only checkout lines? that's pretty ridiculous.

    I realize this makes me a jerk, but I would go to whichever checkout line was the shortest - even hers. I suspect her line will probably be the shortest, since many people with pork or alcohol would not.

    kosher-only checkout lines?

    vegan checkout lines?

    pescetarian checkout lines?

    lactose-intolerant checkout lines?

    where does it end?

    How are you imposing your religious views on someone else? If you've got booze you go to another line. If I want to buy cigarettes, there's only one line for that, and if I have more than 10 items I can't use certain lines.

    Wherever the employer specifies. This was a choice made by management, not by a judge.

    You're right about one thing.

    I'll bet you go to the 10-items-or-less line with 13 things, too.

    Jews are REQUIRED to drink wine, for Passover.

    that means that if there are two lines at the store, one which is Halaal and only has one person and the other which is all-inclusive but has 50 people on it, I can't use the shorter line due to my religious beliefs.

    that...is a form of discrimination.
