Skip to comments.Pakistan McDonald's In Trouble For Enforcing Its Own Moral Code
Posted on 09/11/2012 10:38:47 AM PDT by Responsibility2nd
McDonald's is at the centre of a row over Islamic values in Pakistan after a customer complained he was told not to sit beside his wife because managers feared it would damage the restaurant's family reputation.
Mr Ansari said trouble started when he sat next to his wife and slipped an arm behind her shoulder.
A member of staff told the couple to move but when they again sat beside each other in an adjacent booth it became clear that the issue was not their location, but the proximity of a man and a woman in public.
In an account posted on his blog, Mr Ansari said he was told: "Sir, this is a family restaurant. Couples sitting together is against the policy of McDonald's Pakistan, as it goes against the family atmosphere of the restaurant."
Two managers then told him that couples sitting together damaged the "Islamic family atmosphere" of McDonald's, according to the account.

[Husband and wife] sitting together ... goes against the family atmosphere of the restaurant.
It should be difficult to find an example that so clearly illustrates the core insanity of islam.
A man sitting next to his wife and putting his arm around her is an affront to “Islamic family values” but flying planes full of innocent men, women and children into buildings to kill thousands is an act of religious piety. You can’t get more screwed up than that.
A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.
No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome."

Do their commercials feature Imam McCheese and the Hammartyr?
“You cant get more screwed up than that.”
Agreed, but nothing stops ragheads from trying anyway...
Idiocy goes way back.
The Roman Censor Cato the Elder expelled a senator from the Senate for giving his wife a kiss in public and in front of their daughter.
LOL...and Grimace in Pain.
Send treats to the troops...
Great because you did it.

A fine example of Sharia law in practice in daily life.
