Muslims freak out over Guide Dog on bus. 71 year old man was removed

Muslims see dogs as ritually unclean. Upon embarking a bus the child of the fuck (impartial viewpoint) started to freak out. The Bus driver asked the man to get off the bus. After he refused he was kicked off by the bus driver.

Look, it's 2009. If the dog is ritually unclean, you are modernally retarded. Fair warning, if you confront me because you haven't raised your child to get used to dogs, and I'm somewhere legal and you ask me to be removed... I'll stop myself there.

Society doesn't live around you live in society. I honestly feel that the mother and child should have been physically thrown off the bus for interrupting society with asshattery.

That is absolutely asinine. A service dog is necessary for the people they guide. It is not like he was bringing his beloved Sparky on a joy-ride. This man is at a loss without his dog. Some people....O.o

What?!? A dog on a bus???? What's next? Cats on a merry-go-round? The world is going to shit because they took prayer out of the schools, I tell ya!

The offended party needs to stop being lazy and just wash their clothes seven times.

Lol @ Reggie and Frink.

That's it. I'm from now on training all dogs I might ever own as service dogs...and taking them EVERYWHERE I can in public.

I'm not understanding if it was the guy with the service dog or the Muslim and kid kicked off the bus, though.. which was it?
And if it was the guy with the service dog, I hope he sues to the point of owning that bus. Park that big boy in his driveway next week!

Spitting during Ramzan is OK. And chameleons should be killed because one pointed at Muhammed hiding in a cave. However, a spider saved him by spinning its web on the cave's mouth just in time to fool his pursuers. So spiderwebs are OK too.

According to the article, it is uncertain as to the religion the the mother and children ascribed to, just that they were foreign. the possibility of both their being either Muslim or Asian was raised. Additional prior occurrences do not make mention of any details of the offended person.

I think that we can all agree that the offended people do all belong to one group, though. Ignorant asshats.

It's been going on in England with Muslims all over Here , Here So this specific story doesn't say Muslim because the guy reporting it is blind. :-) They claim that they don't like dirty dogs and that's what is going on there. So I'm holding my position that they are Muslim by the totality of the circumstances.
I've never met an Asian person whom didn't like dogs for a cleanliness reason. It would be a great discussion as to what I can do to make Asian (all of asia including India) people more comfortable with dogs. I have a 85 lbs Ridgeback that freaks people out ( I don't understand it but many of friends say that he's intimidating so I accept it.) So other than saying hello in a friendly manner, how do I make Asian people more comfortable? The fact is that their reactions are precisely what will get you bit by a dog. (Stereotyping involved there). If you never make eye contact with a dog, chances are it will not engage you either. If you make eye contact and back away you invite problems. Any thoughts on how to politely help these situations? Maybe an Asian person has a cultural explanation that I've never heard?

After having lived in Asia for three years, I can pretty heartily say:
"There isn't jack-shit you can do."
Some love all dogs. Some love only small dogs. Some are terrified beyond all freaking reason of any dogs at all. Hell, one of my Thai friends are petrified of cats. Cats. Even kittens!

Start an awareness program involving small children, maybe? Make introductions when the kid is too young to know they are supposed to be afraid?

If people have to be sure not to "make eye contact and back away" from a dog lest they invite problems from that dog -- then that dog should not be taken out in public. It is not other people's responsibility that you have a dangerous, untrained, and/or unpredictable dog.

I don't think that anyone would argue against putting down an aggressive dog. It's not just about aggression. A dog with a owner whom isn't a leader might think that you want to say hi and run over and even jump up. It's an education issue that I'm raising and not suggesting in any way that dogs should do what they want. Education is the key to preventing all sorts of problems in life and this is just one that shouldn't be ignored. It could be the difference between life and death if not beneficial in preventing the problem these folks are clearly terrified of. I'm equally dismayed at owners whom refuse to learn how to control their dogs.
