Jedi church is no more silly than any of the other religions in terms of observances so why should they experience discrimination?Diane wrote:This is about a Jedi knight who was told his hood breach store rules and he had to leave the premises.

Do they not serve niqab wearers in Tesco?
In fact, I'd hazard a guess that the Jedi's haven't had anything equalling the Inquistion
Why? Isn't it just a grocery store?jaywhat wrote:No - and I would not shop in Tesco anyway and I am sad that anyone does.

Oh, you didn't mean this...
As a frequent crash helmet wearer, I get peed off that it's also seen as more objectionable that a burka/niqab.
In the OP I said niqab when I meant hijab covering the head but not the face.
Now, let's say it was another supermarket and it allowed the hijab. Do you think it should also allow the hood - or should it be entitled to ban both on the grounds that they alarm customers and make identification through the cameras more difficult?
Whether they have been given less high profile jobs or let go, I don't know.
But knowing Tesco's record I would think they were probably sacked.
I don't think anybody at any time should be allowed to conceal their identity, wheather it be a 15 year old "hoody" or someone claiming "but it's my religion!"
Wow! Thanks for the education on Tesco. I can see why you guys dislike it. It reminds me of Costco here. http://www.costco.ca/. Although with Costco, you have to purchase a membership and it's really only worth it if you buy in bulk.jaywhat wrote:Several reasons - like puttting small shop keepers out of business - but mainly fiddling on planning applications such as building bigger stores than agreed on and also buying up land to stop rivals opening with nearby competition. (Just like any other business, I hear you cry)
If the garment obviously conceals the identity ie. the face, then it should not be allowed but a hood(just over the head) or hijab doesn't obscure either. But that leaves the issue of burqa alive and well.Diane wrote: Now, let's say it was another supermarket and it allowed the hijab.

I feel that if the face is clear that is OK whatever else one is wearing.mmitchc633 wrote: If the garment obviously conceals the identity ie. the face, then it should not be allowed but a hood(just over the head) or hijab doesn't obscure either. But that leaves the issue of burqa alive and well.
As for Tesco, I am happy people here seem to be anti. We are so anti that when drivng past a Tesco we never slow to let a customer's car in or out - or a Tesco lorry.
A friend of mine is a Tesco user and a Roman Catholic. I cannot bring myself to talk about either.
There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:
1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

I must admit I was sort of wondering the same thing myself.
