Christine Douglass-Williams, Jihad Watch: Captain Morgan rum website asks visitors to confirm they are non-Muslim

Captain Morgan rum website asks visitors to confirm they are non-Muslim

The alcohol brand Captain Morgan has been asking visitors on its website to confirm that they are non-Muslim. It is common to ask visitors to confirm their age, but certainly not their religious affiliation. Many are shocked by the message and are calling it “an instance of back door Sharia.”
That is exactly what it was, as it is not illegal for Muslims in the United States to drink alcohol.
After an outcry, Captain Morgan removed the request that visitors confirm they were non-Muslim.
The British group Diageo, which makes Captain Morgan, targets mostly the substantial expatriate population in alcohol-restricted Middle East countries, but whether or not this was really a mistake on Captain Morgan’s website, there is reason for concern. Remember: several foes of jihad terror and Sharia oppression have recently been warned by Twitter that their tweets violated Pakistani blasphemy laws. At the same time, the freedom of speech is under continuous attack in the West. Sharia supremacists continue to test the boundaries of free societies.
“Captain Morgan website asks visitors to confirm they are ‘non-Muslim,’” by James Hockaday, Metro, September 24, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
People were outraged to find Captain Morgan asking visitors to confirm they were ‘non-Muslim’ before entering their US website.
It provoked intense theological debate online, with some calling it an example of ‘back door Sharia’ and others branding it ‘corporate racism’.
Although Islam forbids the consumption of alcohol, there is nothing in US law forbidding the sale of alcohol to Muslims.
The age verification box was spotted on Saturday and quickly taken down, but Captain Morgan did not issue a statement until contacted the rum brand.
Twitter users who defended the age verification message were asked if people should also have to swear they aren’t Jewish to order a bacon cheeseburger or if meat shouldn’t be served to Christians on Fridays.
People also questioned why visitors weren’t asked to confirm if they were not Mormons or baptists, who are also taught to avoid alcohol. Far from being a case of discrimination or an attempt to appease religious zealots, it turns out a technical error was behind the puzzling message….

Jihad Watch is dedicated to bringing public attention to the role that jihad theology and ideology play in the modern world and to correcting popular misconceptions about the role of jihad and religion in modern-day conflicts. By shedding as much light as possible on these matters, we hope to alert people of good will to the true nature of the present global conflict.
Before it’s too late for Western Europe and the United States, which gave birth to the traditions of freedom and equality of rights for all that shine today as lights in the entire world, this must be stopped. Therefore Jihad Watch seeks to bring public attention to:
  • The plight of the dhimmis, an immense but almost completely ignored ongoing scandal that continues in Muslim countries today;
  • The plight of women under Sharia provisions, similar to conditions imposed on dhimmis, in the denial of equal rights and dignity;
  • Slavery in Islamic lands, which continues today, justified by Sharia-‘s dhimmi codes;
  • The integral role of jihad and dhimmitude ideology in global terrorism today;
  • The license that academic and journalistic whitewashes of dhimmitude gives to radical jihadist enemies of human rights for all.
Jihad Watch fights to ensure that deeds done in the darkness for so long will not continue to be done. The light of world attention is anathema to the proponents of jihad and dhimmitude: we have seen in recent years that women sentenced to stoning for adultery, often victims of rape unjustly accused thanks to Sharia laws disallowing rape victims’ testimony, were freed following international outcry. Jihad Watch seeks to provoke similar, continuous and increasing outcry wherever and whenever the Sharia’s institutionalized injustices threaten dhimmis and women.
May the truth prevail.
