I’m on Capt. Fields’ side - I wouldn’t go, either. I have worked with a fair number of muzzies and, frankly, I just don’t care for the majority.
IMO, the PD has no business ordering their officers to attend these events. This is just PC BS and, if the PD wants to hold an Open House (for example) for the muzzies in the community so they can meet the officers, that’s one thing.
But, ordering these police to attend services at a mosque, is beyond the pale and unacceptable. Religion is taboo topic for mixing at work and requiring the PD oficers to attend, IMO, is a violation of their civil rights.
I hope Capt. Fields wins!

Might have gone and challenged them in a matter of fact way on their 7th Century death cult, despite any departmental instruction otherwise. In any case, the event should have been completely voluntary.
I’m normally NOT fond of lawsuits, BUT this one is the exception. Should a defense fund be started for the LT, I’ll be at the head of the line to kick in.

This Moslem business will get out of control. It'll get out of control and we'll be lucky to live through it.
We see this more and more every day. And what is being done about it?

And how many Christian “cultural events” are being planned for Muslims? How many Muslims would attend?

(It will take blood)
A Tulsa police officer and devout Christian is suing his department after being punished for refusing to go to a mosque for a mandatory cultural event.
From the title I though he was sent there to investigate a crime...
This is like the firefighters who were ordered to march in the gay parade a couple of years ago...
They sued and won i think...

Don’t you think that the PC politicians would cave if a Moose Limb objected to working in a Synagogue?
the event would include meetings with Muslim community leaders, a tour of the center's mosque, talks on Islam, as well as a 45-minute prayer service.
Oh HELL NO!
