UK father and son banned from public swimming pool for not being Muslims

Multiculturalism gone wild: UK father and son banned from public swimming pool for not being Muslims
You see how quickly and easily demands for special consideration in the name of civil rights -- which are granted in the name of fostering assimilation -- become exclusionary and supremacist.

"Father and son banned from council swimming pool for not being Muslims," from the Daily Mail :

A stunned dad and his little boy were banned from swimming at a popular public sports centre - because they are not Muslims.
The man, known only as David T, and his 10-year-old son were stopped from going into the pool at Clissold Leisure Centre in Stoke Newington, east London.

Last night embarrassed management at the complex said staff were wrong to turn customers away from the designated 'men-only modesty session' on Sunday morning.

The council says the special early-morning get-togethers are aimed at community groups who have strict rules on segregation.

But the dad and his lad were prevented from swimming when they turned up at 9am on Sunday.

David T said: "I arrived at the pool to discover that they were holding what staff described to me as 'Muslim men-only swimming'.

"I asked whether my son and I could go as we were both male. I was told that the session was for Muslims only and that we could not be admitted.

"I asked to speak to the duty manager, who confirmed that this was the case."

He added: "I asked what would happen if I turned up and insisted I was Muslim.

"The manager suggested that they might ask the Muslims swimming if they minded my son and I swimming with them.

"If they didn't object, we might be allowed in."

The men-only modesty swimming sessions take place every Sunday from 8am to 9.30am.

Two websites have been advertising the sessions for Muslim men only....
