Hooray for these Muslim cabbies who know right from wrong, a legitimate ad from smut, and who are militantly vocal about it.
But I wonder. Why is it that Muslims get their way in the USA while Christians do not? Is it because people are afraid of Muslims who might riot and put out a fatwa, while Christians are peaceful and tolerant and can be walked over? Is it because Obama is really a Muslim in disguise who promotes Islam (and even bows before the king of Saudi Arabia) while putting down Christianity?
Why are we not hearing from the vocal anti-life, homosexualist forces and the liberal politicians, lawmakers and judges? They want to force doctors and nurses to participate in abortions, pharmacies to dispense contraceptives, Catholic adoption agencies to let gay couples adopt, B&Bs to open their premises to homosexual couples, etc. They want to legislate conscience objection out of existence. Why are they not insisting that NY cabbies display smutty roof ads? Are they not violating the rights of the Flashdancers Gentlemen’s Club? How about the rights of all those sex seekers who patronize such clubs? How about the rights of lapdancers who are just earning a living?
It sure is a crazy world, where wrong has been made right.
But we need to realize. The enemy is not just out to destroy family and life. The enemy is also trying to destroy faith and more specifically Christianity, and the prime target is the Roman Catholic Church, which is the only institution standing in the way of its mighty diabolical juggernaut.
Muslim New york cabbies win fight against smutty roof ads

NEW YORK, September 23, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – New York’s Muslim taxi cab drivers are celebrating after authorities granted their request for the right to yank prominent advertisements for strip clubs from the top of their vehicles.
The New York Post reported last week that the city’s Taxi & Limousine Commission (TLC) granted cab drivers total veto power over the content of their roof ads, a decision the Post says delighted “scores” of drivers from more than one faith background.
“We are Muslims, and we do not like the ads!” cab driver Mohamed Tahir, 66, told the paper. His vehicle is topped with an advertisement for “Flashdancers Gentlemen’s Club.” “If I had another ad, I’d change it right away! It bothers many of us,” he said.
The content of the ads is normally determined by the owners of the taxi medallions – the aluminum frames bolted on the cab roof – who earn about $125 a month from the ads.
TLC Commissioner David Yassky strongly endorsed the change. “If you’re a taxi driver who owns his or her own car, you take it home, your neighbors see it,” said Yassky. “This is an appropriate and measured step that gives the driver the authority to screen out ads.”
Another Muslim driver complained that the ad on his vehicle, which is also his primary mode of private transportation, was so embarrassing that he started attending his mosque on foot instead. “People getting out of the mosque would see the disgusting things,” said Osman Chowdhury.
Driver Mohan Singh said the signs even affected his 6-year-old granddaughter, who said she wanted to be a “dancer” after seeing the Flashdancers ad atop Singh’s taxi, something that infuriated him. “We should keep [the advertisement] there to tell the children that it is good?” he asked.
“The most important thing is for the children.”
