Government sanction of a two-tiered cab system would amount to an acknowledgment that Shari'a, or Islamic law, is relevant to a routine commercial transaction in the Twin Cities.
Aka, it would give these people a govt. sanctioned excuse to exercise their backwards religious prejudices. Not giving rides to blind people because they have dogs with them is inexcusable. In-friggin'-excusable. Gah.
One of the prices of pluralism and freedom is that people don't act in the way your religion dictates. In such a society, though, you have to treat those people just like you treat your co-religionists, at least when it comes to public activity. If you can't, then you need to sequester yourself from such interactions.
All religious people need to put that quote in their pipes and smoke it.

If Muslim cabbies don't want to do their friggin' jobs, Muslim cabbies should quit.
Yeah, I fully agree, and I feel exactly the same way about Christian pharmacists.
