Target received a wave of criticism earlier this week after the Star Tribune reported in a front-page article that some Muslim cashiers at Target declined to scan bacon and other pork products. They would call over another cashier to ring up the products, or in some cases, ask customers to do it themselves.
Some customers called and wrote Target to complain about the practice; a few called for a general boycott of Target on the Star Tribune's community blog, buzz.mn.

Can we expect the ACLU and other leftist organizations to jump in and force Target to fire or discipline these employees? It only seems fair since they are trying to get the government to force pharmacists and obstetricians to dispense morning after pills and perform abortions, despite their religious objections.
