I see the double standard here, and no it doesn't involve Obama so much as the court of public opinion.
Here's the double standard as I see it. Two muslims are expected to be given a deferment from delivering beer in their truck. Now I don't know the situation of the trucking company, but my presumption is they're just a national carrier, told to carry x load to Y destination. So perhaps they were contracted a load from point A on the east coast, to point B on the west coast, then while they're there, pick up a load at B and bring it back to A. Anyway, by all means I agree that there should be a reasonable exception made based on their religion.
Where the double standard comes into play is that not too long ago, a Christian man who was a baker, owned his own bakery, was sued because he refused to make a cake to commemorate a homosexual couple getting married, and he lost that lawsuit. As a business owner, he has the right to deny any person service for any reason. That doesn't give him the right to deny service to an entire group of people, so he can't put up a sign saying, "No gays served", and he can't deny them anything like donuts, bread, etc. He can only deny them a cake decorated in a manner that disagree with his personal religious beliefs.
So the double standard is that he was sued and lost, because the court of public opinion thinks that Christians should have to put their beliefs aside to suit the popular homosexual crowd because the homosexuals are perceived to be discriminated against. Then we're supposed to believe that in a short period of time, we're supposed to stand behind a different religion that doesn't allow alcohol and give these guys hundreds of thousands of dollars in reparations because they lost their job for refusing to do their job.
Again, my personal belief is that they shouldn't be forced to go against their religion when other truck drivers are available. But, that baker shouldn't be forced to go against his religious beliefs either for the same reason. There are other bakeries available. They weren't being discriminated against as a group, I highly doubt they would have been denied a "Happy Birthday" cake, or a dozen donuts, etc. They were denied one specific service based on the proprietors beliefs. Why are we ok with this double standard?
