M&S Muslim sales assistant refuses to sell 'unclean' Children's Bible
It concerns a book of Bible stories which was for sale in Marks & Spencer in Reading. When the customer tried to pay for it at the till, the Muslim sales assistant declared it to be ‘unclean’, refused to serve her, and went away to fetch someone else to conduct the sale.
The saga was covered by the Daily Mail, and Cranmer looks forward to the outcome of the investigation. But he looks forward even more to observing the extent to which the Muslim sales assistant is reprimanded, or whether Marks & Spencer will simply cease selling Christian books in what is an increasingly Muslim area.
And one wonders what accusations of ‘racism’ would have arisen if this had been a Christian employee who had refused to sell a copy of the Qur’an, and whether such an employee would have been 'investigated' or summarily dismissed.
