Those on the right seem absolutely incapable of seeing the irony that is hitting them right in the face. While last week’s headlines were full of Kim Davis, the Christian Kentucky clerk who refuses to issue marriage licenses for gay couples, a Muslim flight attendant was suspended for refusing to serve alcohol.
These two women both have something in common, although it’s unlikely we’ll see them hanging out together anytime soon. Both are strict adherents to their religion and both are willing to sacrifice their jobs for their religious beliefs.
Charee Stanley is not in jail, like Kim Davis, but she is without work today and she has filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission because she believes she was wrongfully fired and was discriminated against for her religious beliefs. Here’s the video:
So, how does the right respond to Stanley? Here’s Breitbart:
So now we have yet another Muslim workplace lawsuit from CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) – once again designed to impose Islam on the workplace. This is what they do.
Oh, but there’s more outrage over Islam in the workplace:
There are many such cases. The EEOC is suing Star Transport for rightfully terminating two Muslims who refused to do their job. If these Muslim truck drivers don’t want to deliver alcohol, then they shouldn’t have taken a job in which part of their duties would be to deliver alcohol. It’s that simple.
But no, Islamic supremacists chip, chip, chip away at the establishment clause, and in doing so, impose Islam on the secular marketplace. Take, for example, the Hertz company. Hertz bent over backwards to accommodate its Muslim workers: they have prayer rooms, prayer times, etc. They just didn’t want the Muslim workers leaving work to pray outside of scheduled break times. Mind you, they could easily pray before or after work, but no. This imposes Islam on everyone else – just as Charee Stanley wanted to do when she refused to do her job and serve flight passengers alcohol. After the initial surrender on Hertz’s part, Muslim workers began suing Hertz, charging “Islamophobia.”
This is where religious rights get sticky. To be consistent, one must believe either that both Davis and Stanley are in the wrong and should either do their jobs or find others or that they are in the right and that the rest of the nation should be subject to every service personnel’s religious whims. Personally, I prefer the former. Let them both find different jobs.
