The Liberal Mind

Kim Davis has to issue marriage licenses to gay people but Muslim truck drivers don't have to deliver beer.

The Equal Unemployment Opportunities Commission filed on behalf of two Somali men who were fired from a trucking company after refusing to deliver beer saying it was against their religious values as practicing Muslims.  The two men were awarded $240,000 after it was found that the company violated their religious beliefs.  The EEOC attorney released a statement:
"This is an awesome outcome... They suffered real injustice that needed to be addressed."
An even more awesome outcome is that Star Transport has shuttered operations as a result putting 25 people in Morton, Illinois out of work. Central Illinois News

I wonder what would have happened if the two men were Catholic and refused to deliver condoms to a Planned Parenthood Clinic.  Do you think perhaps the outcome might have been different? 

Jewish drivers refusing to deliver bacon to their neighborhood supermarkets?

Hindu's who refuse to deliver beef?

Secular cab drivers who refuse to take people to church, mosque, or synagogue?  

Would you be okay with a Muslim cab driver refusing to take you to a bar?

How much bullshit do we need to accommodate?
