    You are assuming that there would be that many people available in most government offices, doing that job. There aren't usually. Normally, there are only one or two people available at a county clerks office to issue marriage licenses, especially in small rural areas.

    Why did the Muslim get a job as a clerk with the Alcoholic Beverage Board if they had a religious objection to issuing Liquor Licenses then?

    I don't believe any employee, be it government or private business, should personally determine whom they will or won't serve, and as such all should be warned, and if they persist, they should be fired.

    I do believe that a business owner should be entitled to determine the scope of his/her business practices provided that once he/she determines the services they will offer, he/she may not refuse to provide services based on whom the customer is. They may decline service if the customer is abusive or disruptive in some way.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    They lost in court.

    I guess it depends on whose ox is being gored.

    You mentioned Muslim's which brought the older case to mind and my post was on the topic at hand.

    In this case Muslim's didn't get general support nor did they win in court by claiming their religious beliefs allowed them to not pick up blind people with service dogs.

    I didn't think of it then. But reading through the thread I remembered it.
