I failed to notice anywhere in the article below that the Muslim family so offended was being held in the United States against their will.
It’s so typical of Muslims to fail to assimilate yet demand that we adhere to their stone age belief systems.
Please hand over your passports, your one-way flight to Mecca is now boarding.
It is not the intention of this article to suggest that Muslims eat pork.
Muslim Family Finds Bacon in McDonald’s Chicken Burgers.
Wait a minute, problem solved.
A Muslim family in Alabama found bacon in 14 McChicken sandwiches they ordered from a Decatur McDonald’s.
The family was reportedly on holiday from New York and stopped at the McDonald’s to eat after a day out at a nearby water park, according to local media outlet Al.com.
The Alabama chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) demanded an investigation into the incident.
Khaula Hadeed, the head of the Alabama chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, called the incident “an intentional act of religious and ethnic bigotry.”
They started noticing it tasted different to them.
They eat McChicken all the time at McDonald’s. (Why?)
They knew what they ordered — they know what’s in the sandwich,” she told AL.com.
Upon investigating the sandwiches, the family discovered the bacon.
“It doesn’t sound like a mistake, especially on 14 sandwiches,” Hadeed said.
While Clarion Project has differences with the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Clarion opposes acts of anti-Muslim bigotry.
Eating pork is forbidden in Islam and for a restaurant worker to hide pieces of bacon deliberately in sandwiches sold to a Muslim family certainly comes under that category.
Much as a worker deliberately slipping beef into a Hindu’s food (or that of someone who said they were vegetarian), this act, if deliberate, should result in the firing of the employee responsible. (Good luck with that one.)
It represents a breach of trust between the customer and the restaurant that the customer will receive the food they asked for.
In this case it caused clear emotional harm to the family and made them feel singled out and targeted for their faith.
