Quote from Roy Fokker
"Note: A lesson to be learned from all this - you can have a personal preference or belief --- so long as it doesn't clash with the "established majority". The minute you are found 'violating' the 'esteemed principles' of the 'esteemed majority' you shall and will be penalised".

I applaud folks who are true to their beliefs.
"I would leave my job, instead of doing something that's not allowed in my religion," he said.
These are independant drivers - right? Not employed by someone else. If so, then they have the right to refuse service to anyone . . a sign that is hung up in most restaurants. Also, "No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service".
I don't see a problem with having "distinctive lights" on the cabs to let folks know which ones don't allow alcohol.
I think Americans need to open up their minds a bit . . . . .and see the hypocrisy . . . . next time I walk into a restaurant with the above sign, I'm by Gosh I'm gonna take off my shoes and my shirt and they'd darn well better serve me . . . .
