@ Joe Cox

Nobody gives a poo about retards who THINK THEY'RE ACTUALLY JEDI'S.

They might be, but it's hard to believe when their leader says he was intimidated by 3 tesco employees. He has force to be reckoned with, y'know.

I hate Tesco, they always complain when I try to pray to the Flying Spaghetti Monster in the pasta aisle.

We must end this religious discrimination.

Jedi take their hood off when indoors or speaking to people, therefore Tesco is in the right.

The reason Tesco has the banning of wearing hoods thing is because a lot of 'undesirable' people in the uk often wear items to shield their faces whilst causing general disruption or shoplifting. Not everyone who wears a hat or something does, but the one person ruins it for the rest of the population.

(Incidentally, women in my country and every neighboring country bar one (Saudi) can drive).

We've discussed Saudi before. Saudi is a poohole. We know this. Everyone knows this. I don't know of any Arabs who don't hate it. I know many people from war torn countries like Palestine and Lebanon who would rather go back home than live in Saudi. I don't know of any exceptions.

This is what I was talking about when I took China as the only example of a secular state.

It is a cheap and easy trick. "Hey china does a lot of that whole genocide thing, must be all the Atheism in the water".

Hell you even have Saudi scholars stating that the rule is cultural not religious.

Only case of anyone in my family being stoned, Madest, as I've said before, are my father, and 6 year old sister.

In Scotland, for their skin color.

You're also wrong about where "my part of the world" is.

This isn't "wearing a symbol of your religion" like a cross. It is abiding by what you feel is decent.

That is why you have (as we've discussed before) Niqabs, Abayas, Sheilahs, Bhurkas, Chadors, and so on of all different shapes and sizes.

Different interpretation as to what "dressing modestly" means.

what you are saying is people must behave in a way they feel is indecent in order to not be discriminated against.

Apparently a "part of the world" run by you sounds a lot like what you think "my part of the world" looks like.

Anyone can form a religion, religions are nice but why should a religion get rights?

I tend to agree. Joke time:

Q: What's the difference between Christianity and Jedi-ism?

A: About 2000 years.

Funny stuff! Also, anyone who starts a religion based on a sci-fi movie franchise should EXPECT persecution...

"
No crazier than a Muslim insisting on wearing a hijab for their religion. "

not necessarily...

Why didn't he just use the Force? Seriously, all this talk about descrimination...it's only descrimination when the actor has the authority to impact the victim's life based upon their beliefs and the victim has no recourse or in finding recourse would suffer further negative action by the actor.

If this guy doesn't like it, go to another store for your sandwich and move on.
