    That's got to be one of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard. Especially as the shirt was made at that mall.

    So much for freedom of speech.

    :rolleyes:

    The world is crazy. And the worst thing is that they make up an excuse. But, why were they asked to leave in the first place? The t-shirts!

    I can't remember who said it but, "For each and every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism".

    We have had a weird case over here as well. A pizza shop of all places, put a sign up on there door saying because of the anti-Iraq action stance of France, Germany and Belgium, they would not serve customers from those countries any more, (this pizza place is in a touristy area). The owners have been arrested for racial discrimination. I'd post the link, but it is in Danish so probably of limited use.

    im wondering if it was something else besides the shirt, i mean it seems kinda wierd that a cop would come up to you in the mall and say, "take off your shirt or leave".....that makes no sense??

    Well... it is illegal. Quoting my RE teacher: "The 1976 Race Relations Act makes it unlawful to discriminate against anyone or promote racial hatred".
    What I don't understand is the logic behind the shop's owner's decission. It's not the turists' fault that their country is going to war. Plus it's illegal and they lose clients.

    There was also this guy, muslim 'religious leader' (can't remember what they're called) who provoqued(sp?) a riot in a mosque. He was banned from preaching. BTW, it was down in London or Manchester I think. Wait a minute... was it in Spain? Traveling so much from country to country isn't good for my memory.

    abrege: I know that because of personal experience. There's this girl in my Science lessons that is allways trying to outsmart me and make look stupid. She's very competitive (and I think it's only against me)
    Some people don't learn. I'm too lucky to be seriously outsmarted...

    > that makes no sense??

    If you would have read the article, it would have - the mall's private property. They have the right to throw out people. If someone came into my house with a shirt that said "Turn Iraq into a parking lot", I would have thrown them out. It's the same thing.

    > Well... it is illegal.

    I can't help but notice you don't live in the same country as adrian. There're different laws...

    It was here in London at the Finsbury Park mosque. I think he was banned under these new counter-terrorism laws some way or another.

    This could be an EU law, so it applies right across Europe. Don't know though so could be wrong. But this is the sort of thing that is now coming under EU law.

    An EU law was made in 1976? Did some laws carry over, or what?

    Well spotted. Teach me to read posts properly. Though this kind of thing could actually be an EU law, I doubt it would have been passed in 1976.

    It looked like it was an international law but I've just noticed it's just for the UK. Sorry for the confusion.
    Well, even if it's not. It should be illegal. I'd imagine that most goverments have laws that go along the same lines.

    At least the Finsbury Park guy is under this law, but I guess they'll try to shut him up with whatever they can. Not sure exactly what it was but apparently it was big.
