Three and a half grand compensation for refusing to accept a handshake?
What the fuck is wrong with the world? It's high time we refused to
accept any religious reasons for doing or not doing anything.

As always, you're an idiot. She was compensated because the employer
terminated the job interview because of her religious convictions.
Unless it was an essential part of her job to shake people's hands,
there was no reason to terminate the interview.

You seem to have remarkably little understanding of the newspaper
article you quoted.

Is it a requirement of Islam that a woman must not shake hands with a man?

If so, it's news to me.

Or is it just a silly affectation which, if exhibited by anyone else,
would fully justify them being shown the door?

I think it's highly offensive if someone of either sex won't shake hands
on principle rather than for some good medical reason.

This is not some primitive country still in the 14th century but here, now.

But the countries Muslims come from are. And they expect us to revert to
that state. I they want to move here for whatever reason, then they must
behave like us.

I know nothing about Islam, but an orthodox Jewish woman would not shake
a man's hand.

Are you saying they should be denied employment? Fortunately, there is
legislation to prevent such unfairness as well as the economic loss to
the country.

Jews are equally stupid religious nuts, who have no place in modern

Why is that fortunate? Why should an employer not have the right to
choose where HIS money goes? A Jew should also be free to set up a
company only employing his own kind. By the way, next time you pass a
paki corner shop, see how many caucasians they employ.

That's fine. Expel us, and we will take ourselves off elsewhere.

It's like the French expelling the Huguenots. That led to the collapse
of the French weaving industry, whilst the Huguenots established
themselves in the Netherlands and Britain, kick-starting the industry in
those countries.

The alternative is to make some space for the religious nuts, as you
call them, and prosper from their endeavours. You may also think it's
just the decent way to behave, but maybe there's no room in your selfish
brain for such thoughts.

Why bring money into it, my boy?

There are nutters of all sorts of descriptions around. I don't choose
to spend my life with any of them, religious or otherwise. Why should I
not be free to ignore them or even discriminate against them if I
choose? To do otherwise would be to give respect and credibility to
their ridiculous beliefs, and I don't see why I should be made to do that.

Because I thought it's the only argument that would appeal to the

and I'm surprised he is so worried about who is supporting him.

In your private life, you are perfectly entitled to do so. However, when
it comes to jobs and the like, there's a different balance between your
personal freedom and fairness to others.

Yes, there we have to bend over backwards to accommodate people having
characteristics they can't help, like the colour of their skin,
nationality, disability etc, and it's right and proper that such people
should be treated fairly.

Where I draw the line, though, and the law doesn't, is that it stops me
discriminating against those having particularly absurd religious views.
Why should I have to accommodate them, when in reality I think they're
mentally deficient and nutty as fruit cakes?

I don't want to work with anyone who thinks they have fairies at the
bottom of their garden, or any other illusory beliefs.

I don't discriminate against you because I would say the same to any
troll.

I would also call out any lack of scientific expertise, irrespective of
who makes the fake claim.

Further if I felt someone had cognitive difficulties similar to
yours I would try and work around the difficulty just as I have done
with you but if the difficutlies become an obstruction to a proper
discussion then I would point them out.

I do my best not to discriminate.

Where I draw the line, though, and the law doesn't, is
that it stops me discriminating against those having
particularly absurd religious views. Why should I have to
accommodate them, when in reality I think they're
mentally deficient and nutty as fruit cakes?
As you know, I genuinely consider you to be mentally
deficient and as nutty as a fruit cake but I do my best
not to discriminate against you.
Yes, of course you do.
That's why you never ever resort to name calling, ad hom
insults or lies, isn't it? Full of consideration, you are,
and no mistake.
The truths I tell may offend but that's not good enough
reason for me to lie.
I don't discriminate against you because I would say the
same to any troll.
I would also call out any lack of scientific expertise,
irrespective of who makes the fake claim.
Further if I felt someone had cognitive difficulties similar
to yours I would try and work around the difficulty just as
I have done with you but if the difficutlies become an
obstruction to a proper discussion then I would point them
out.
I do my best not to discriminate.
Do you *ever* have anything worthwhile to contribute?
I think you should ask yourself that question. Only in the
last week, as you have started to lose arguments to people
posting from other groups, have you eased off your trolling
and tried to post something sensible.
Phucker has never ever contributed to anything.
All the troll does is to troll with questions. He gets a wank
out of all replies.
This is one weird guy.
She was talking to Norman, who is a well respected poster. Best
you read the attributions correctly next time old man.
Are you one of Norman's socks?
I am nothing like Norman.
In what way do you differ?

Jews are equally stupid religious nuts, who have no place in modern

It's like the French expelling the Huguenots. That led to the collapse

There is no need to expel anyone and your infatuation on 'expulsion' is

Three and a half grand compensation for refusing to accept a handshake?
What the fuck is wrong with the world?  It's high time we refused to
accept any religious reasons for doing or not doing anything.
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/08/17/swedish-muslim-wins-case-refusing-handshake-man-job-interview/
As always, you're an idiot. She was compensated because the employer
terminated the job interview because of her religious convictions.
Unless it was an essential part of her job to shake people's hands,
there was no reason to terminate the interview.
You seem to have remarkably little understanding of the newspaper
article you quoted.
Is it a requirement of Islam that a woman must not shake hands with a man?
If so, it's news to me.
I know nothing about Islam, but an orthodox Jewish woman would not shake

Are you saying they should be denied employment? Fortunately, there is
legislation to prevent such unfairness as well as the economic loss to
the country.
What religious text specifically says a Jewish woman should not shake a
man's hand? If none, why is it a religious thing rather than just an
absurdity? If it's just an absurdity, why shouldn't I be free to treat
it as exactly that, mocking it if I choose, making decisions on the
basis of it if I choose?

You'll probably find this hard to understand, but other people have
feelings. Also, they may have views that you don't agree with. However,
rather than trying to convince them that you are right (which you do
endlessly on Usenet), you might be considered less of a boor if you
simply put up with their minor foibles without comment.

And, I do mean minor foibles. I don't think you should put up with
somebody who tries to harm you physically. But, not wanting to shake
your hand (and explaining this in a charming way, which the Swedish lady
did), or wearing unusual clothes, these are foibles that you ought to be
able to put up with.

What an interesting example of how a couple of biblical quotes that
don't have any relevance can be endlessly twisted and manipulated to be
argued about for months on end and still not come to any conclusion.
Presumably, those who do so call themselves 'scholars'. I call them
nutters searching endlessly and futiley for a meaning that is not there.
It's a route to insanity and a complete waste of time.

Should I respect the feelings of those who think they have fairies

We've done that for far too long. Rather than tiptoe around them

It's pointless trying to convince them that I'm right and they're wrong.
They're too far gone for that. They're beyond rational argument.

No. These things impinge on normal activities and social interactions
with normal people. I find them offensive. Shouldn't they stop doing
them so as to respect my feelings? After all, they're only minor

What the fuck is wrong with the world?  It's high time we refused to
accept any religious reasons for doing or not doing anything.

As always, you're an idiot. She was compensated because the employer
terminated the job interview because of her religious convictions.
Unless it was an essential part of her job to shake people's hands,
there was no reason to terminate the interview.
You seem to have remarkably little understanding of the newspaper
article you quoted.
While PHucker is an idiot, he picked up on a good article, where custom
in Europe is to shake hands as a greeting.

The fact she chose not to shake a man flies against convention and sex
equality. I too would say she has no place in my workplace.

Exactly. Imagine one of us (a woman) went over there and refused to wear
a head-dress. She'd be executed on the spot.

If she worked entirely by herself you have a valid point. However most
jobs require an employee to work in a team and be a team player. There
may be visits from customers even if not in a forward facing role. The
possibility of an employee being seen to be rude to others is not worth
taking the risk.

When you meet HM Queen, she decides whether she will shake hands with you - you do NOT offer your own, but wait for her to extend hers. It is the same with Muslim women.

OTOH whilst holding a particular religion should not be grounds for discrimination (an is normally illegal), I wonder if extreme religiosity could be? Who would want a fundie / zealot / born again working for them?

Not the ones I've met except the ones still in the dark ages. And I
don't see any reason why I should make ridiculous allowances for them if
they're over here and in our culture.

Besides, it's not a requirement of Islam for a woman not to shake hands
with men, but just a childish affectation which, like all such, is
something I really haven't got any time for. It's not showing respect
to me and my culture to refuse to shake hands. Why should I be expected

Come on, if they're here in our culture I expect them to respect it,

is a reciprocal thing, not a one-way street.

Every job I've ever applied for has a sheet at the back of the application
form asking for homosexuality, religion, race, etc. They always claim
it's to make sure they're getting a fair selection of people whatever that
means. It's utter bullshit, because as you say, all it does is allow them
to pick and choose.

Nope, I'm free as an employer to select a shortlist because I like the
look of their CVs. Inviting a Muslim in THEN saying she can't have the
