Star Ethicist recommends surrender to Sharia law…

Faith-based refusal to shake hands with women in office not OK: Ethically Speaking

“…Begin by speaking privately to your colleague. Calmly explain why you experience his behaviour as offensive. Make clear that, while you respect his right to practice his religion, that right does not extend to treating you as a subordinate. In all likelihood, given his generally “respectful” nature, he’ll respond that he had no intention of making you feel inferior, but that his faith simply prohibits casual physical contact with women. You need, then, to make clear that whether or not that was his intention, the effect is that you felt diminished. Then propose a solution. Suggest that, seeing his faith makes it impossible to shake hands with everyone, you will jointly propose, at the next meeting, that the practice of handshaking, or other such physical contact, be eliminated from meetings at your place of work.”

    It’s obviously a Muslim who refuses to shake a female co-worker’s hand, but the Star’s ethics columnist still quotes the Bible. What a joke.

    On a related note, I’m happy to say that today marks four months since the last time the Toronto Star sullied my doorstep.
    (April 29th being the last day it was delivered to me. I’m not only saving myself the cost of the subscription, but I save myself a spike in blood pressure every morning. Win-win!)

    • They are such assholes at that paper.

      • Yusuf_al_Kafir

        Yes they are.

        Recent layoffs and Torstar’s stock price is in the toilet?
        That’s well deserved. 🙂

    star ethicist?
    man you have jobs
    over there, who pays for this
    and damn what for?

      An ethicist is easier to accomodate at the Star than a moralist.

    Clicked on here to type “Unbelievable!” in the comments, but by the time the new tab opened I realized that coming from The Star that’s far from true.

    “…Begin by speaking privately to your colleague. Make clear that, you respect his right to behead infidels. In all likelihood, given his generally “respectful” nature, he’ll respond that his faith simply demands that he kills infidels wherever he finds them. You need, then, to make clear that whether or not that was his intention, the effect is that you felt diminished. Then propose a solution. Suggest that, seeing his faith demands that he kills infidels, you will jointly propose, at the next meeting, that he kills all infidels, not just those who were unable to hide in time to avoid him.”

      Then remind him that since Mohammed began receiving his ‘revelations’, Mohammedans have been infidels.

    Wait…….does this mean that their may be a Law in Canada one day where my Daughters and Wife can’t be forced to touch the hand of a Master-Race Filthy muslim .
    Yahooooo, bring it on.

    The quran points out that allah tells muslims that the current 6,000,000,000 non-muslims on Earth are filthy unbelievers and enemies of islam to convert , force the Head-tax on them …and if they refuse they are a valid target to KILL.

    Now this is equality at the STAR where women don’t have to touch those filthy muslim believers.

    Starlites in eyes Susan:

    It is important to understand your mythical but ever so trendy “no shake hander” is shy in his new surroundings. Offer assistance as he tries to shit standing up on one of our western imperialist toilets. Once he has raped you a few times, he will probably treat you as his sex slave. Won’t be ever so cool?

  • Daviddowntown

    These days, most people hate shaking hands anyways; everybody’s afraid of catching something.


    • John

      It’s original intent was to demonstrate to the other, the stranger you weren’t bearing arms andor harboring ill intent.

      Such sentiments, though, are impossible for mohammedeans.

    ….sorta OT

  • Hard Little Machine

    I am fine with respecting women who are married Orthodox Jews who do not shake a man’s hand. It doesn’t insult me in the least.

    • tom_billesley

      I’d find it more awkward to be expected to hold hands with a male muslim colleague when walking down the street.

      • Justin St.Denis

        But don’t the look just darling when they do that! So cute! (sarc function ON)

  • Canadian Born

    There goes Canada our once great country. The 2 that should be beheaded are Wynne and Junior for letting this happen to this country. Shame on us for letting these governments do this. There is no democracy here because if there was we should all be able to vote on certain things like Sharia law and the majority would then rule. Leaving it up to inept politicians does nothing but screw a country.

  • BillyHW

    Never ever hire a muslim.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      Or eat at their restaurants.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Or purchase goods in Muslim-owned bakeries.

        Unless you are really enamoured with puking, never eat in an Egyptian restaurant. Even Syrians will not patronize an Egyptian restaurant. OR Saudis. Or Iranians. Actually, Egyptian cuisine freaks just about everybody but Egyptians right out of their gourds.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          Had my fair share of food poisoning working in the industry for twenty five years.

    • Justin St.Denis

      I have heard that advice being shared privately by executive headhunters. Muslims negatively impact the bottom line of virtually any employer.

  • Alain

    Wow, what a cult. Shaking hands with the opposite sex = red light. Raping the same = green light. Considering there is a lot more body contact in the second, one wonders why the first is forbidden.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Trying to identify anything logical in the Islamic faith is a complete and total waste of time. Mohammad (piss upon his grave) was completely incapable of logic. Psychopathology can do that to a prophet. 😉
