Legally we now have a precedent there, but not sure it's the correct one.

Should anyone's religious belief allow them to refuse serving a homosexual couple?

Do you actually think that's an analogue?
It may not be an exact analogue, but it does raise the valid question that if you are prepared to make concessions for some relgious beliefs what beliefs will you not make concessions for and why?
I'm bored with Muslims now, there like the Irish from a few years ago always banging on about some irrelevant nonsense trying to get everyone's attention.
True. Theres the whole beardy, AK-47 thing too…..
In other part of the world if you are a non-Muslamic you don't get employed. Simple.
If you want to be employed you need to convert, otherwise go elsewhere for a job.
I fully commend an employer for trying to assist anybody in adapting their job role to suit their own personal preferences - ie placing an employee who doesn't want to handle alcohol in other areas of the store - but if an employee insisted that they wanted to work on the tills and refused to handle certain goods, I think the employer would have to take the hard line. Ultimately, anything else would inconvenience customers and lead to losing business.
I think if you're going to make exceptions for religious beliefs you'd have to make exceptions for political & ethical beliefs also. What would we be doing if, for example, this checkout assistant was refusing to serve pork on the grounds of being a vegan?
