One argument seems to go something like "Catholics demanded fish on Fridays, so they got fish. What's the difference?" Another seems to go something like "let Subway freely choose what they want on their menu."
To the first argument "Catholics demanded fish." I answer, when? When did Catholics demand that fish be served on Friday's or else? I think it may have went something more like the freedom argument. Catholics ate fish on Friday's and a large number of Catholics actually did it. As a result, eateries freely chose to add to their menu something that would appeal to Catholics and other lovers of fish and fish sandwhiches. Nothing, I repeat nothing was taken away upon demand. Fish is now on the menu, and customers are free to either eat fish or meat on Friday's. No one made any demands.
To the second argument, I answer, Subway did not freely choose to add anything to their menu. They were asked to take something off of their menu that most of the free world enjoys eating. In effect, limiting everyone's options. It seems to me that there is no need to eliminate pork from the menu unless, you are thinking terms other than freedom. Removing pork limits everyones options and in the context of the circumstances leaves one with no other reasonable position, than to believe that Subway, is enforcing the beliefs of the mohammadens on their customers. Mohammadens, do not need to choose pork when they go to subway. Just like they do not need to choose fish on Friday. The fish is still there for Catholics or fish lovers, since you do not have to be Catholic to enjoy fish on Friday and the pork should still be there for the rest of subway's customers who enjoy some bacon on their beef. This does not appear to be a move freely made and ordered toward the good of everyone. Rather, a choice that has been influenced by an ideology(not a true religion), which apparently Subway now wishes to impose on all of it's customers in at least 200 stores.
In short, I have yet to see a reasonable explanation, for not being offended by 200 of Subway's stores imposing Islamism on it's customers. What about Vegans? Why not take all meat of the menu?
A better comparison would be something like Catholic business owners removing meat from the menu entirely on Fridays. Or Catholics demanding that meat be removed from the menu on Friday's. It would at least be more reasonable. Though neither has happened so, I suppose that is why some commentors chose to use a comparison that does not actually work in this particular situation.
Be Holy, Not Worldly!
