“Welcome aboard US Airways — Today’s flight is expected to be turb(ul)an(ce) free…”

A Muslim scholor named Omar Shahin is calling for a boycott of US Airways after he and five other Imams were taken off a flight operated by that company because they were praying before the flight.

Here’s the real “welcome to America” part. Shahin later asked, “To practice your faith and pray is a crime in America?”

If he thinks this is bad, he should try being a Christian practicing his faith in a public school or government office building. In many ways, the answer to his question is “doi!”

If the boycott catches on, the airline is expected to change their name from “US Airways” to “Whew! Airlines”.
