Quote# 67522

The New York City cab driver accused of booting a gay couple from his car for hugging said that he was terrified the men were about to have sex, and his boss added that being a Muslim made the situation especially difficult to handle.

Medhat Mohamed faces penalties and possible license revocation for ejecting Paul Bruno and his partner from the car in Manhattan after driving only two blocks Monday night, citing their displays of affection toward each other.

"I wanted to pay attention to getting them to their destination instead of worrying if they were going to have sex or not," Mohamed told the New York Post on Wednesday.

The driver said he told Bruno and his partner that they could remain in the car if they stopped touching, but Bruno denies he made the offer.

Mahmoud Elnefnawy, who owns the taxi medallion used by Mohamed, suggested that his Islamic religion was the reason, telling the New York Post, “in our religion, we can't handle that stuff."

"There's no kissing allowed in the cab,” said Elnefnawy. “A man has to be a man."

Pics of bush making out with a Saudi prince say something else.

And the customer is always right.

"The New York City cab driver accused of booting a gay couple from his car for hugging said that he was terrified the men were about to have sex,"

You cannot possibly be that fucking stupid.

"and his boss added that being a Muslim made the situation especially difficult to handle."

No. Being a raging homophobic bigot made the situation especially difficult to handle. His religion just exacerbated it.

"Medhat Mohamed faces penalties and possible license revocation for ejecting Paul Bruno and his partner from the car in Manhattan after driving only two blocks Monday night, citing their displays of affection toward each other."

Ha Ha!

""I wanted to pay attention to getting them to their destination instead of worrying if they were going to have sex or not," Mohamed told the New York Post on Wednesday."

Again, you cannot possibly be that fucking stupid.

"The driver said he told Bruno and his partner that they could remain in the car if they stopped touching, but Bruno denies he made the offer."

Yeah. Like making such an offer matters.

"Mahmoud Elnefnawy, who owns the taxi medallion used by Mohamed, suggested that his Islamic religion was the reason, telling the New York Post, “in our religion, we can't handle that stuff.""

Maybe you've got the wrong religion then.

""There's no kissing allowed in the cab,” said Elnefnawy. “A man has to be a man.""

Is this policy prominently displayed somewhere within the cab? Is there some company rule in effect here? Some state law?

I thought not.

To be fair, people (straight or gay) shouldn't be having full-out sex in a cab, and even making out could be distracting for the driver, but I get the feeling that these two men were doing little more than holding hands.

Well, If I was that cab driver, I would have
just taken them where they wanted to go and
then moved on to the next customer.
If there is a merciful God, will he hate me for
minding my own business and doing my job
without disturbing people?

Would he have ejected a heterosexual couple for hugging in his cab?

"I wanted to pay attention to getting them to their destination instead of worrying if they were going to have sex or not,"

Not everyone who kisses is going to have sex.

"There's no kissing allowed in the cab,” said Elnefnawy. “A man has to be a man."

Somehow, I doubt you would be saying this if it were a hetrosexual couple.

Tell ya what, no Efenway, how about you just pick up good Muslim customers and refuse service to everyone else. See how long you stay in business that way.

Yes, because we all know gays can't go 10 seconds without having sex. Oh wait, yes they can. It's fundies who can't go 10 seconds without thinking about gays having sex.

And gays are supposed to be the perverted ones?

I wonder what the anti-gay AND anti-Islamic bigots are gonna make of this. Something's gotta give!

Hmm... surely this quote should have triggered that pic of Bush kissing King Abdullah by now?

I would post it myself but I don't know how.

and if they were a man and women viciously making out he wouldn't have given a fuck, I'm sure.

also hiding behind your religion is fucking low.

The funny part is that there are probably a bunch of Christians out there right now who aren't sure whether or not to support him because while being a homophobe, he's a Muslim homophobe.

HAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, wow. I seriously can't stop laughing right now.

Time for you to move back to the middle east then..as I am sure you would get just as pissed if a Christian cabby kicked you out because his religion cant handle Islamics.

The guy's last name was Bruno? That's too good to pass up.

Why do so many people think homosexuals all want to have sex in public?

If it was couple of lesbians, what do you wanna bet he would have wrecked the cab watching them in the rear view?

I have absolutely no idea what possessed you to think that they were going to fuck in your taxi.

Oh wait.

"being a Muslim"

That explains it.

Bet he wouldn't have done/said those things if it were a straight couple... or, for that matter, a lesbian couple.

And because, let's face it, this picture is obligatory:
