Solution, as mentioned in video, buy seats next to friends or have special area on plane. done.
Reasonable accommodations of Jews, Muslims, Christians, Brest feeding women, the overweight, the handicapped, children, it's what a what a SMART airline does, it's what good society does.

I say these guys should charter a flight. If your religion means you can't coup with civilization then you need to keep to yourself.

These fundamentalist morons should have immediately left the airplane when they saw they were seated next to women instead of waiting until the plane took off to create a problem. Their behavior was inexcusable, and it sounds like it was planned.

It's talk like this that concerns me about the future of religious liberty in America. People don't even want accommodate the SLIGHTEST inconvenience over what they don't believe.

when we ask atheist whether or not they believe in "religious freedom" or "religious protections" they say yes, of course. But when you put it the test in reality they balk and finally say things like:

"If your religion means you can't coup with civilization then you need to keep to yourself."

"civilization" meaning in their minds --basically thinking the same way i do, doing the same things i do, and doing it when i do it.--
Beyond that it's just "TO MUCH" and it somehow "makes sense" that it not be allowed or maybe even should be made illegal at some point.

And we're not even talking about some sideshow pedophile death cults.
This goes for the worlds MAJOR religions.

The airlines job is to transport people from point A to point B. Period. If people want accommodations beyond that, they should use a different mode of travel.

And "PEOPLE" include religious people.
Unless you want them banned like liquids or to much carry on.

If these people won't take their seats when instructed to do so by the flight crew, land the plane, turn them over to the police and continue on. Simple.

Nobody has talked about banning the religious people.
If they were, you would have unilateral support in objecting to any attempt to ban religious people. So take that strawman and stow it.

And don't mistake the response you see here with any real objection to religion.
If this story had included a group of people making identical demands but stating it was not due to religion (but just their personal philosophy), the response would have been the same.
Some people seem to think that just because they say "But that's my religion" that it somehow carries extra weight with special demands.

Part of the problem is that many people are sick and tired of people demanding religious favoritism.
YOUR religion may require you to behave in a certain way.
How are other people obligated to help you in your restrictions?

Quite frankly, there are rules that apply to all.
Just because your religion tells you that you have to behave a certain way doesn't mean others have to bend over backwards in order to acquiesce to your religious beliefs.

At the end of the day, these religious people inconvenienced others because of their religious beliefs. There was no religious discrimination here.
