Just when you think you have heard everything, United Airlines changed a woman’s seat because two Muslim men did not want to sit by a woman.
You are shocked at United Airlines action? So was she!
Mary Campos told CBS that her pre-booked ticket was given away by United Airlines:
“A million-mile flier, Campos, a mom who lives in Coto de Caza, said she thought she’d seen it all – until a gate agent handed her a new boarding pass just before she got on a flight to Houston last Monday.
“He said, ‘This is your new seat,’” Campos said, “and I said, ‘Excuse me?’ And he said, ‘I don’t know how to tell you this.’”
She said she continued by saying, “Yes?”
And the agent told her, “The two gentlemen seated next to you have cultural beliefs that prevent them for sitting next to, talking to or communicating with females.”
She was shocked.
“I thought I lived in a culture where females were equal to men,” she said.
Campos is a senior consultant in the oil and gas industry.”
Ya know…If these two men have such a religious conviction that they cannot sit next to a woman, that is fine. I respect that! I have deeply seeded religious convictions! Don’t fly, don’t take the bus, don’t put yourself in that situation!
But to inconvenience someone else is sickening and United Airlines was moronic to comply to this. I have a feeling that they will realize this as the word gets out. People tend to boycott rather easily theses days. Just ask the NFL and Target!
I don’t go to bars. You don’t find me going into bars and telling everyone to stop drinkin’!
Mary wrote a letter to United Airlines. “What if I were handicapped or transgender? What if your entire flight crew were female? Any belief that prevents individuals from interacting with females should not travel on commercial aircraft.” she asked.
She got a reply back that said United Airlines would look into the incident…
Yeah… I bet they look into it! I bet someone gets in trouble for making such a moronic decision as well!
This country was founded on the Constitution. Sharia is diametrically opposed to our Constitution. Live in your own home by all the Sharia you want! THAT is Constitutional! Don’t force it on me!
That is all!
