Captain Morgan Asks Web Visitors To Declare Themselves “Non-Muslim”

Robert Spencer At PJ Media

Were they drunk? Last week it was discovered that the U.S. website of rum brand Captain Morgan was asking visitors to check a box confirming that they were “non-Muslim.” After the box became a focus of controversy, it was quickly removed, but questions remain. The UK’s Metro newspaper says that the box “provoked intense theological debate online, with some calling it an example of ‘back door Sharia’ and others branding it ‘corporate racism.’” Neither Islam nor rum is a race, but back door Sharia? That it certainly is.

The Sharia aspect is clear. The Islamic prohibition on drinking alcohol is based on this Qur’anic passage: “O you who have believed, indeed, intoxicants, gambling, stone altars and divining arrows are but defilement from the work of Satan, so avoid it that you may be successful” (5:90).

This is not a call for self-control. Like all of Islamic law, it is to be enforced by the Islamic state, with harsh punishments for those who get out of line (or stumble out of it). More

  1. why would a company selling a product that is banned by muzzies, even bother to care if the customer was a muzzie, or not? what would muzzies be doing on the site in the first place? shouldn’t the person buying the product have the onus placed on them, instead of the producer? after all, they’re not making anyone buy it. are muzzies that weak in their faith?

    might it be a muzzie hack?

  2. Good idea! More places need to do this: airlines, gun and knife stores, schools, Immigration, the State Department, DoD, DMV, …

    “Arrrgggg… nice earings ya got thar Achmed. How much ye pay for ’em?
    A Buccaneer”

    …one time, a boy was Trick-Or-Treating alone as a Pirate Captain, and it was late in the evening after he’d been at it awhile, when he knocked on a jovial woman’s door.

    She opened the door and, seeing the young pirate alone, jocularily asked, “Ahoy Captain, where are your Buccaneers?”

    …to which the tired boy shot back, “ON MY BUCIN’ HEAD!”

  4. …they may not drink, but I seem to remember some Muzzies in Barbary who didn’t mind being pirates when we FIRST had to deal with them, or some Somalis who don’t seem bothered by piracy NOW…apparently, Muzzies only like VIOLENT vices and draw the line at the ones that might keep them out of our hair for a few hours…

    …they may not drink, but I seem to remember some Muzzies in Barbary who didn’t mind being pirates when we FIRST had to deal with them-

    …the “Shores of Tripol” part of the Marine Hymn, if you’re wondering…

    “From the Halls of Montezuma
    To the shores of Tripoli;
    We fight our country’s battles
    In the air, on land, and sea;
    First to fight for right and freedom
    And to keep our honor clean;
    We are proud to claim the title
    Of United States Marine.
    Our flag’s unfurled to every breeze
    From dawn to setting sun;
    We have fought in every clime and place
    Where we could take a gun;
    In the snow of far-off Northern lands
    And in sunny tropic scenes,
    You will find us always on the job
    The United States Marines.
    Here’s health to you and to our Corps
    Which we are proud to serve;
    In many a strife we’ve fought for life
    And never lost our nerve.
    If the Army and the Navy
    Ever look on Heaven’s scenes,
    They will find the streets are guarded
    By United States Marines.”

    (I just like those lyrics, sorry, not sorry, they tell SUCH a story…)

  6. I have witnessed two Muslims get drunk a few times over the last 10 years.

    Very infrequent, but not zero. I’d bet a dollar or two I could get one in particular to have a couple shots with me next time I see him.

    He’s showing up at my new church and studying the Word lately.

  7. It’s been said by anonymous sources that should know, if you drink rum for breakfast, your not an alcoholic, your a pirate.

  8. Dadof4, at my church in MN, I was good friends with several people who were missionaries in the Middle East (Africa, Afghanistan and another country that I don’t remember). They have all said that many Muslims are hungry for a loving God and they were surprised to find that they were willing to hear about Him. They had to be careful, but they all had stories of whole families willing to talk to them. Two of the missionaries were temporary (six month sessions) but one couple have been there for over a decade.

    I pray for them.

  9. …Muslim countries differ from Christian ones in that they will kill you for proselytizing, so your missionaries are quite brave, @Claudia…also, when I try to talk to the less ridiculous ones around me, they are VERY scared and hesitant, because the penalty for apostasy in Islam is death, in this country, or any other, and police departments aren’t even ALLOWED to consider this threat because, PC, so they’re very much on their own if caught…

  10. Yes, he is quite hungry for the Word and the showing of love between my sons and myself was in stark contrast to how his father and family are. The combination drew him strongly and he’s one of my “other” sons now.

    It is definitely a dangerous thing for him. Not something you want to let his family know he’s doing yet.

    He really gets the basic message, but back when he asked about how humanity started, it took me a minute to realize he was talking about Genesis and had never read a word of it.

    He has bibles with him all the time now and I installed a searchable bible on the living room computer for our talks. He’s quite the willing student.

    216 years ago 50 Jarheads killed 200 Muslim and maimed another 75! “… to the shores of Tripoli….” We are good at killing bad guys. Have been for 240 years!

  12. Supernightshade, Laphroaig 10 year old scotch!

    No Ice!

    My personal hierarchy is:
    1 – Scotch
    2 – American Bourbon
    3 – Irish Whisky
    4 – Canadian Rye

    But don’t let my country men know or they will kick me out of Canuckistan!

  13. I can’t stand Captain Morgan spiced rum it tastes like cough medicine…but I really can’t stand Fukin’ Muzzies they remind me of dog shit I stepped in! Long Live the Crusades!

  14. AWESOME! My fraternity nickname – “Cap’n Morgan” – can still be proudly worn! 😁

    Captain Morgan, and Mountain Dew. Not enough O’s in “smoooooooooooooove”… 😉

    Yes, but I am too close to the end of my life to be fearful of dying for the right thing.

    In fact, dying for that reason would be an enhancer. We’re talkin’ where we spend our eternity.

    This lifetime is but a blip in time on the eternal scale.

    But, yes. Talking to his family about his journey is not wise.

    P.S. He became an additional son about 10 years ago. So, not that new of a friend now.
