Muslim woman: Roller rink didn’t allow head scarf
A woman named Marisol Rodriguez-Colon is a Muslim? That sounds more like a Mexican name to me. Either way, it doesn’t really matter if she’s from Mexico or Mars – she’s an idiot. But then again, most die-hard religious people are. TGO

VERNON, Conn. – A Muslim woman in Connecticut says a roller rink’s request that she either remove or cover her head scarf was discriminatory.
Marisol Rodriguez-Colon of Windsor tells WTIC-TV that she and her sister-in-law went to the Ron-A-Roll indoor rink in Vernon on Sunday for her niece’s birthday party. She says inside, a woman who identified herself as a manager told them they would have to either remove their hijabs or wear helmets. She was told the rink has a policy prohibiting headwear.
Rodriguez-Colon said removing her scarf was “not an option,” and they left.
Rink management issued a statement reiterating the no headwear policy and saying helmets are offered for safety purposes.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations says it has filed a complaint with the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities.
