I tried to paste the actual article but the chicken livered Dispatch blocked it. You have to wonder what they are afraid of. Wexner? Mikey Coleman? What a rag. It is down on the section of political news if you want to read it before they censor some more news.

The ignorance and narrow-mindedness shown by a majority of these posters is really scary. Makes me want to double my contribution to the ACLU!

You got that part [partially] right.

How do you compare a woman's CHOICE to be modest in public to a Pepsi and a Toyota??? Don't worry, there will always be slutty white trash shoving their tits in your face...don't worry, it's ok...

Most workplaces have a dress code. Leave your stupid religion at home and follow the dress code. If not, you're insubordinate and deserve to be fired.

So what you are saying that the girl in the article should be allowed to wear her scarf if she doesn't bomb anyone?

How broad is that brush you paint with?

I didn't realize just how racist against Muslims people are in Columbus.

She was wearing something on her head for her religion. She wasn't pushing her religion on anyone. BTW, America is built on people of various different cultures who came here for a better life. If you don't support religious freedom for ALL, then go back to YOUR country, or go rot in a sewer (preferably the second of the two).

It was a mistake ever allowing her kind to come to this country. It used to be that immigrants assimilated into their new country. Now it is just the opposite. Honestly, what good has this population done for Columbus? They consume far more resources than they contribute.
