Re: “Bacon Wars: Why Did the Sneakers Bistro Incident Go Viral?

I think the operative word here is "vegan" not Muslim. She stated she was a "member of a Muslim household", not that she was a Muslim.

The restaurant got punked, PETA is laughing out loud, and the confused are mad at Muslims. Muslims who choose to eat at restaurants that are not halal tend to be highly aware that foods that are forbidden are likely to be on the menu.

I empathize with the Bistro owner, offending the wrong Muslin can result in decapitation.

Re: “Bacon Wars: Why Did the Sneakers Bistro Incident Go Viral?

Ridiculous! All of this!!! I'm a jew.....but why would I ever be offended by bacon? Its food people!!! Get real...we are so quick to be ultra politically correct, that inevitably, we offend someone anyways. Where does it end????? I'm offended by idiots, ignorance and cry babies, so I just choose to ignore them......

Re: “Bacon Wars: Why Did the Sneakers Bistro Incident Go Viral?

Dysinger is a coward. The word "bacon" is offensive to no one. The woman who complained is the only bigot in this case. Dysinger capitulated because he wants to be loved by everyone. I guarantee you that if a Christian woman complained about a sign that had the word Muslim in it, Dysinger would have left it up on the grounds that he doesn't condone bigotry.

Re: “Bacon Wars: Why Did the Sneakers Bistro Incident Go Viral?

The problem is that if bend over forwards for one, where does your whoring stop?

it doesn't. You'll always offend someone. Better to offend one than a group.

Yes Sneakers was cowardly and commenting on those that are just mad doesn't sddress the real issue.

Re: “Bacon Wars: Why Did the Sneakers Bistro Incident Go Viral?

I don't really think it got out of hand. Much more so than any other religion, Muslims are "offended" when non-believers do things that don't conform to their beliefs. Catholics are not offended if someone at the next table is eating a juicy steak on Ash Wednesday or Good Friday.

Re: “Bacon Wars: Why Did the Sneakers Bistro Incident Go Viral?

Is sausage and bacon on their menu still? If they were consistent with their regard for the woman's feelings, they would take it off. Intolerance in action. Lady if your religion forbids eating pork products, then don't eat them.
Don't go to restaurants that offer them, and let US eat bacon. I'm pro-choice. I choose where I want to eat
and I don't preach about taking away what I don't like from others. Maybe I'll go back there and loudly order BACON!!!!!

Re: “Bacon Wars: Why Did the Sneakers Bistro Incident Go Viral?

People from all over talked about this. It got so out of hand. There is still a movement to keep the haters off Yelp. This was talked about on Love & Dishes (a local podcast). http://loveanddishes.com/2014/08/25/40-special-report-sneakers-bistro/
