An Alabama businessman is coming under fire for a new sign outside his electronics store, which declares: 'BBQ pork restaurant is safest -- no Muslims inside." Where did he get the bright idea for the new signage? His friend sent it to him as a joke in an e-mail.
Some, however, aren't laughing. ABC 33/40 reports:
The Electronic Repair Company in East Lake is getting a lot of traffic these days all because of a sign outside the business.
"I put jokes up there," owner Chuck Biddinger said.
Biddinger says the sign, which reads "BBQ pork restaurant is safest...no Muslims inside," is harmless.
"Muslims do not eat pork," he said. "It's a known fact that Muslims have tried to commit crimes in this country."
Biddinger says he received the quote in an e-mail. He says he tries to change the sayings on both sides of the sign once a week. ...
But Biddinger claims it's not about race or religion. He says it's just a joke.
"I'm not a politically correct person and I don't claim to be," he said. "I never have been."
