Reasonable Accommodation II (Further to this post):

It gets worse (H/T: Mick Hartley):

Apparently, according to this source, "Muslim medical students are refusing to learn about alcohol-related illnesses and sexually-transmitted diseases because they say it goes against their religious beliefs.
And a small number are even refusing to examine patients of the opposite sex because they say it is forbidden by the Koran.

The General Medical Council and the British Medical Association both say they have heard of cases of trainee doctors having religious objections."

It's a hard lesson to swallow, as Mick Hartley says, that the effects of "that misplaced multiculturalism... we're now beginning to realise, are by no means all benign."

We shall hear a lot more about these cases as religious (and I daresay other types of) minorities get emboldened in their insistance on accomodation to their idiosyncratic principles.

And somewhat related (H/T: The Iconoclast):

"Islamic edicts of this kind are an effective means of resisting invasions by colonisers and a strong weapon in waging jihad, the cleric said. But Muslims need to travel and settle down in countries other than their own.

This way they get an opportunity to become nationals of other countries and get political rights, which ensure their empowerment...."
