‘For God So Loved The World’ For A $19.99 Oil Change?
You can read that article at the link above, but I have ported both videos here as well:
Pretty darned humourous for a few seconds at 2:25....
So, I read the article and watched the videos and agree that this is all completely legal.
Morally, I find it reprehensible. "You only get a discount if you cowtow to my faith".
Have we really come this far in America?
So, let's put the shoe on the other foot for a minute and let's ask:
What the news would look like if the couponhad said instead :
Quote Surah V, v. 51 for a lube job
(Surah V, v. 51 (Kuran): O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and Christians for friends.) ??
I wonder how many Christians or Jews would be really pissed off, say, if the muslim owner asking for the quote from Surah V, v. 51 was offering a 90% discount on a $40.00 lube job, meaning with the quote, said lube job costs only $4.00.... for you see, this would also be his good right to run such an advertising campaign.
The owner of the shop said it is his right to do this and I agree with him.
But I question his taste in doing this.
There was a time in the history of our world where people were thrown out of restaurants and hotels and trains (or better put, forced onto other trains heading for a final destination) etc.... for their religion.
Heads up to JMG for the tip.
What say ye?
