Lesbian Denied Haircut by Male Muslim Barbers

This story’s from Canada. But don’t worry, before you know it, a similar thing will happen in the United States. It will be interesting to see how liberals and their willing judicial accomplices will respond.

“Barbers in Toronto who refused to cut a woman’s hair have become the target of a human rights complaint, in a case that pits religious freedom against gender equality. When Faith McGregor went into the Terminal Barber Shop requesting a short haircut, she was told the shop only grooms men. The reason, co-owner Omar Mahrouk said, was that as a Muslim he could not cut the hair of a woman who was not related to him.”

The barber appealed to his Islamic religious beliefs for the refusal. This would be similar to an orthodox Jew or Islamic butcher who refused to slaughter a pig because of specific religious requirements regarding handling certain unclean meats.

While the rejection was not because the woman was a lesbian, it raises the same types of issues since the refusal of service had to do with gender. Under Canadian law, “business owners aren’t supposed to discriminate based on gender.” So what’s a Muslim barber to do?

Actor Woody Harrelson with some of the barbers at the Terminal Barbershop in Toronto, Canada

Kind of makes you wonder why she picked this particular barber shop? Of all the barber shops in Toronto, she goes to one that is known for its Islamic beliefs. The place has been in business 1925 and no one has complained. Life goes on, even with the discrimination.

“Its client list includes former prime minister Paul Martin and actor Woody Harrelson, who can be seen posing with the owners in a photograph on the shop’s website. Some are standing behind the barbershop’s owners, pointing out that there are women-only spas and gyms.”

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago

Considering that we've already crossed the theoretical rubicon on this one, I'd actually like to see a case exactly like this come up here - preferably in the town that forced the baker to bake for a bunch of bleep (yes, I'm being intentionally offensive) - because it would pit two of the liberal media's favorites against each other; regardless of whom they end up picking, there would be some eyes opened in the camp of those not picked (for my sake, I would hope they'd favor the muslim over the lesbian, because the eye-opening would be much more useful - and beneficial to us - than the other way 'round).

A classic play on "you can't have your cake and eat it too".  :smokin:
