Firstly there was music long before the time of mohammed, yet even if that was the case why can't we have music now. Did mohammed teach his followers that music was a sin? If so the guy was a douche bag and should be forgotten. If not then listen to whatever you like. Nice move taxi driver.

The Church of Christ does not allow musical instruments in their services because the bible says: "Make Ye a joyful noise unto the lord."  Somehow, this is a big deal for them.

Fantastic!

And yes Matt is correct, there was music long before Mohammed was fucking underage girls.  It's even possible to locate our best reconstructions of ancient Greek music, which predates Xianity.  And many of our modern musical instruments have origins lost in deep antiquity.

just illustrates the non acceptance of many cultures of "when in rome, do as the romans do" . same in the case for foreigners in saudi and other middle eastern countries, follow customs that may counter your own beliefs or face the consequences.

By order of the prophet
We ban that boogie sound
Degenerate the faithful
With that crazy Casbah sound
But the Bedouin they brought out
The electric kettel drum
The local guitar picker
Got his guitar picking thumb
As soon as the Sharia
Had cleared the square
They began to wail

Now over at the temple
Oh! They really pack 'em in
The in crowd say it's cool
To dig this chanting thing
But as the wind changed direction
And the temple band took five
The crowd caught a whiff
Of that crazy Casbah jive

If I was the cabby I would of turned around and said "Radio silence is an extra 100 quid."

Yeah Ed, but our cabbies like to say, "Fuck off".  And they like the opportunity to do so, grin.  Seek and ye shall find :)

Very funny - something about which both a Christian and an atheist could share a laugh.  But what if the cab driver were an atheist and the passenger a Christian?  Would it have been considered equally appropriate and funny to both if the cab driver had disgorged his fare and suggested he could find his way on faith alone?  Probably not.
