    In all seriousness, it's not a matter of bigotry but a pilot out of line and an airline full of sheltered passengers.

    See edit (I was thinking the same).



    Anyway, this pilot is just the tip of the iceberg. There are thousands (perhaps billions) of nervous people in positions of power trying to do the right thing with limited intelligence (yes, in a few ways). Let's give him the benefit of the doubt and say that he got a little confused and decided to err on the side of caution. At least, until there is proof that he is, in fact, a boogyman.

    Is that reasonable?

    What content are you referring to? As far as I can tell there are only three facts in that article.

    1) Two imams were removed from a flight to Charlotte.
    2) The airline regrets any inconvenience and is investigating the incident.
    3) The imams took a later flight .

    Everything else in that CNN article is conjecture and/or hearsay. The title of the article even tips us off to the fact that the article is written from the point of view of a muslim group.

    I'm going to wait until all parties involved have had their say before I form an opinion on this.

    No.

    Who but a racist bigot would judge people by the fact that they look and dress differently than they do?

    I thought it was pretty reasonable, but we're gonna go with the bigot thing huh.

    You don't think these pilots ever saw a person wearing muslim garb get on one of their planes before?

    Ok.

    Re: Two imams pulled from plane bound for North Carolina

    Am going to take the unpopular view here.

    Islam has the worst image problem of any religion I can possibly think of. I realize not every Muslim is a terrorist nor is every person sitting in a Baptist church this morning a Fred Phelps sympathizer.

    The recent Muslims in England protest who praise Osama Bin Laden and predict more violence against the USA has further tarnished that image of Muslims. Once again I am reminded this doesn't speak for all Muslims. But unlike the Phelps screwballs who number less than 100 the number of Muslims who view Bin Laden as a hero is quite extensive.

    Another difference between our screwball Phelps clan is that their is always a greater number of Americans protesting them wherever they go. It may not be right but I believe it is going be up to the Muslims to improve their image. I would think that if the Bin Laden protesters are such a minority that there would be tenfold number of Muslims protesting these who tarnish their reputation.
