A Hawkins man is claiming his civil rights and religious freedom were violated earlier this year when a black man sacked his groceries and a Big Sandy grocery store owner banned the customer from the business.

    People really like to bandy the phrase "religious freedom" about, don't they? Hint: when a privately-owned store boots you off of the property for being a racist prick to the employees, that's not a violation of religious freedom. Religious freedom isn't your freedom to impose your creeds on others. It's the freedom not to have them imposed on you.

    What a jack*ss.

    Well the "white" man could've avoided all this fuss if he had considered his options:

    1. Upon seeing the "black" man getting ready to bag his groceries, he could've interrupted said activity and bagged them himself.
    2. He could have avoided that particular line and cashed out at another that had a "white" bagger.
    3. He could have simply walked out, leaving his groceries at the cashier and shopped at another store or at another time when there might be a "white" bagger available.

    We live in the land of lawsuits.

    This man is very racist as he judged the man by his color and not his actions. He needs to think about how he would not like it if he were on the reverse end bagging a black mans food and then the black man decided to sue him for being white.

    i find that sort of treatment of anybody (except people who commit real crimes) digusting and it should be ilegal

    Another Rabid Religious NUTCASE running around suing people to get their way.

    Seems to me the end of religion as we have known it is about to take place.

    Lord have mercy, these people just get more ignorant every day. It'd be really nice if this black employee would counter sue & win!
  • ghostrider 2012/08/16 03:53:23
    Of course!!!!!! .... the ever sacred "freedom of religion" ... I guess god is as stupid as all of his religious nuts, or is it vice versa (?), since 'he' supposedly controls, directs and oversees everything

    hinduism isnt the same as christianity
  • ghostrider king david 2012/08/16 04:06:12
    .... and ..... (your point)?
  • king david ghostrider 2012/08/16 04:15:53
    king david
    the man is a hinduist
    when you say god the first thing i think of is christianity
  • ghostrider king david 2012/08/16 04:26:03
    Understandable ... the very reason I didn't capitalize the word ... my implication was 'any' god.

    it is rude to start a argument on sopmbody elses question
    that is why
  • ghostrider king david 2012/08/16 18:57:57
    I rarely discuss/debate the issue at any length because it's truly a 'no-win' argument ... those who subscribe to the concept of (any) god will continue to insist on its 'truth' ... those of us who don't subscribe to the concept will continue expressing our 'bewilderment' as to how a thinking individual could believe such a scenario ... no minds will be changed ... generally, such a 'debate' deteriorates to personal berating and name-calling, a practice to which I refuse to become a participant.

    i will not try to convince you
    even if i tried my use of words is nonsense when i try to say somthing the wrong meaning comes through i am more likely to turn you into a aggreser than a listener and i have had enough nonsense on sodahead to last a lifetime
  • ghostrider king david 2012/08/17 03:50:52
    Hang in there ... stay with your conviction(s) ... and, n-e-v-e-r let the "nonsense" here on SH bother you any ... as you've seen, everyone has an opinion -- and I'm sure you've heard 'the one' about opinions ... finally, if someone becomes really 'stupid', ignore them ... never stoop to their level.

    The White man ought to be sued by the grocery store bag man and jailed.
  • bcarrera 2012/08/16 03:42:58
    That is so racist. He should be sued by the black person. PEOPLE SHOULD ONLY JUDGE OTHERS BY THEIR ACTIONS, NOT BY THEIR LOOKS!!!!!
  • king david bcarrera 2012/08/16 04:05:39
    king david
    taht is what i say day in day out
    nut that is not what people do
    so i judge them on there action of judging on appearence

    That's also what I say every day, and that's also one of the things I believe in.
