You're a hypocrite because b) You're treating this (and have been since this began) with way more complaint than the religious group that has a vested interest in the case
Only because they got what they wanted right away, with no fuss and muss. If they hadn't gotten it, their complaints would be a lot louder than mine.
c) You say you're not out to insult people for their beliefs, yet you do it CONSTANTLY.
I'm not insulting anyone. Expecting them to keep their religion out of my personal life is no different from them expecting me not to lecture them on whether I think their religion (or any) is wrong. It works both ways.
And no, you do not need to deal with everything using a one-shot policy. That's the either/or fallacy. Things CAN be treated on a case-by-case basis and often should be. Otherwise you're generalising which is a much more dire trap.
From a corporate stand point, you do. If you're doing a case by case basis, you're inevitably going to alienate customers of some sort, and lose business. A one-shot policy just makes more sense.
And Eusis - I didn't know that. I still think it's the exception, rather than the rule though.
