Obama Inc. Sues Trucking Company for Firing Muslim Drivers Who Refused to Deliver Alcohol
frontpagemag ^ | June 2, 2013 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 06/02/2013 10:38:03 PM PDT by rickmichaels

Considering the sheer number of things that Islam bans (pork, alcohol, movies, music, chess, kites, etc…) a Muslim driver who refuses to drive a truck containing them is mostly useless.

When Muslim taxi drivers refused to drive passengers with seeing eye dogs or who carried bottles of alcohol, there was an uproar. But now Obama Inc. is using to claim that Muslim discrimination is a civil right that employers must accommodate.

Star Transport, Inc., a trucking company based in Morton, Ill., violated federal law by failing to accommodate two employees because of their religion, Islam, and discharging them, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charged in a lawsuit filed today.

The lawsuit alleged that Star Transport refused to provide two employees with an accommodation of their religious beliefs when it terminated their employment because they refused to deliver alcohol.

A trucking company may be obligated to accommodate religious observance by providing time off for holidays or prayers. It is not obligated to excuse employees from doing their actual job. And delivering alcohol is part of what being a truck driver means. If it’s against your religion, find a job that doesn’t involve delivering large quantities of foods and beverages.

In fact there is no actual prohibition that bars Muslims from driving a truck full of alcohol. There are prohibitions on drinking alcohol. Every Muslim corner store I have ever seen sells alcohol, alongside smuggled cigarettes and lottery tickets. Many Muslim countries allow the sale of alcohol.

These objections have little to do with the Koran and a great deal to do with Muslims imposing Islamic law on non-Muslims in Western countries. And Obama has chosen to collaborate in that assault on civil rights. Again.

This scenario already came up with Reedy v. Schneider National in which Vasant Reddy blackmailed a trucking company into a settlement. But now this latest assault is being spearheaded by Obama Inc.

The case is going in front of Judge James E. Shadid, an Obama nominee who has been hailed as the only Arab Federal judge in Illinois. That’s quite a coincidence, in the sense of not being a coincidence at all.

Obama is taking aim at destroying our economy.

Muslims are being used for this goal. They don’t mind, but eventually they will become targets - and that is also a benefit to the Obama Administration.

BHO2 wants chaos and a civil war to tear apart the United States. Pure evil.

Judge Shaded???

Can’t end well for the trucking company.

They didn’t happen to shop for judges sympathetic to their their cause.

Actually, this is an attempt to make Muslim Religious law take supremacy over US law to pave the way for a small minority of Muslims to impose Sharia on the American majority

That is an attempt that will fail - massivley. It will go to the SCOTUS and thrown out as unconstitutional.

No, BHO2 wants all of us at each other’s throats. There are too many Muslims in this nation who do not want to go back to living in those Hell holes in the Middle East.

The Muzzies are violating the religious rights of those who DO believe in drinking alcohol.

No one is making THEM drink it.

Why does the government treat this different than a flower shop that doesn't want to do a flower job for a homo wedding because it is against their religion?

Oh, that's right! The truck driver is mooselimb and the florist is only a Christian.......

Simply another case of Government determining what a business owner can and cannot do. But for sure don’t do anything that hurts the ‘feelings’ of the Moslem community.

Our leaders and politicians no longer see this nation as the USA.....United-States-of America..... They see it as a cash-cow..and a bunch of children needing to be handled.

This is an example of the insidious lawyer double-speak that has poisoned the well of public consciousness. The individuals in question failed to accommodate the reasonable wishes of their employer in the fulfillment of regular duties central to the nature of their employment, and were thus terminated.

Unintended consequences. This will lead trucking companies and probably many others to not hire Muslims. The Americans with Disabilities act immediately resulted in a drop in the employment rate of the disabled.

“I would never hire a Muslim for anything, and would never consider having a Muslim doctor.”

Hiring any of the “protected groups” is foolish; you will be sued the first time one of the “more equal” people are passed over for promotion.

“The lawsuit alleged that Star Transport refused to provide two employees with an accommodation of their religious beliefs when it terminated their employment because they refused to deliver alcohol.”

So they are hired by a trucking company, refuse to drive the truck(their JOB), and the government files suit claiming the trucking company is discriminating. What religious accommodations do they want? To be paid for praying their five times a day? And they call Christians religious nuts.

As stated already, test runs for sharia law.

They won’t deliver alcohol, won’t give a dog a lift, won’t handle pork at the checkout, but they have no problem butchering someone in the streets. It’s beyond comprehension that any civilized society gives an ear to these barbarians. How did we get so stupid?

Even if it is proven that he is Muslim in a court of law, I’m sure he doesn’t now nuthin’ about this suit. He would first have to read about it in the newpaper.

Always keep in mind two facts concernimg obama:
1. He was elected by a majority of those that voted. Before being elected, he said what he intended to do; in short, destroy the United States as it is known today. Despite this being known, he was elected .
2. Hye is doing what he said he would before being elected. To Wit: Destroying and transforming America from a self sustaining world power to a third world welfare State. This is what those that voted for him, orship him, support him, and adore him desire. That those who worship him are living a life of luxury off the fat of the land and will be destroyed along with the way of life we know is lost on the. Or, perhaps not, all that matters to them is that the United States of America be destroyed.
