Bus and Religion

You would think that it is December 1, 1955. Rosa Parks would cringe if she heard this. I read a story about a bus company in New York where the women have to sit behind the men on the bus.  The B110 is a city bus that is open to the public; however, it is operated by a private company that serves Hasidic neighborhoods. According to the Hasidic belief, women have to sit behind the men. It’s hard to believe that it is 2011.  It’s kind of the same principle that someone’s religious beliefs would supersede the civil rights of women. Should certain neighborhoods dictate their morality?    In the case of the Bus, the DOT forbids gender discrimination. The city spokesman is getting in touch with the company to comply with the laws.   I think its fine for others to practice their religious beliefs. If you are in the Middle East, you should respect the Muslim faith. I would wear a Hijab for modesty. I am not going to wear one in the United States, just because, I am in a Muslim neighborhood. I am sitting with my husband on the bus, not behind him.  This is the reason that prayer has been removed from schools. Whose religion do we practice?
