Constitutional Emergency

By DUANE LESTER

Eddit Bryant is a disabled veteran and a skydiver.  When he wore a pair of shorts to his last dive, some Muslim visitors from Qatar took issue with a tattoo Bryant had visible that identified him as an unbeliever.

They complained to the owner and she asked him to cover it up with duct tape to appease the other customers.

Here’s the story, along with what happened next:

Unbeliever.

Unbeliever.

 

I am a skydiver with around 300 jumps under my belt. I’ve done jumps from 30,000 feet, helicopters, hot air balloons, wingsuit skydives and so forth. So with that being said I travel around doing this sport quite a bit. Today was my second time at a dropzone called “Florida Skydiving Center / Skydive Lake Wales”.

Coincidentally there are soldiers from the country of Qatar being trained there.

The picture is of the tattoo I have. Here is the definition of said tattoo: “Kafir (Arabic: كافر‎ kāfir, plural كفّار kuffār) is an Arabic term used in an Islamic doctrinal sense, usually translated as “unbeliever,” “disbeliever,” or “infidel.” The term refers to a person who rejects God or who hides, denies, or covers the “truth.” The Muslim’s from Qatar saw that tattoo and complained to the dropzone. Once they did so I was called to the back office and asked to cover it up by the OWNER. Not that I would, but its 80 something degrees here today, and that would be an unreasonable request. After I told her that I had no pants to cover it up she told me that she has DUCT TAPE that I can use to cover it. I told the lady that I was not going to cover it up, as it was nothing more than a tattoo saying “I am not a Muslim”. After beating around the bush for a few minutes entertaining me while I was trying to convince her otherwise, she asked me to leave.

I wonder how she would have handled this if the complainants were Christians.  Or if the visitors were offended by homosexuals instead of a tattoo.

That’s a rock and a hard place.

But in this case, the owner chose to tell a disabled veteran he had to leave.

How’s that make you feel?

Don’t tell me.  Tell the owner:

I am honestly offended and embarassed by how I was treated at skydive lake wales.Please, send them your feelings on the subject. Here is their contact information.
