No Girls Allowed!! UK Water Park goes Halal

WaterWorld, a popular UK water theme park is hosting a "Brothers Only" night for male muslims this summer (although it is not the first time they have done this). The event is taking place outside of the park's regular opening hours. Of particular note, one of the websites promoting the event is emphasizing the guarantee that there will be NO female lifeguards - only males.
Let's review: Muslims in the UK can go to a private business and dictate the sex of employees who will sevice them. No problem. However, Christians in the UK who own a private business must render services to every Tom Dick and Harry who show up at their bed and breakfast. Funny how freedom of religion works.
Also of note is a particular Islamist forum that is promoting this event. This is the same Islamist chat forum where posters are calling for the creators of South Park to be killed (because they made fun of a certain unmentionable prophet), where Anwar Al-Awlaki's sermons are posted and followed, where supporters for Dr. Aafia Siddiqui hang out, and where posters have previously praised the death of American, British and Canadian soldiers.
Nothing to see at WaterWorld folks. Move along.
