Skip to comments.Obama Inc. Sues Trucking Company for Firing Muslim Drivers Who Refused to Deliver Alcohol

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 its against your religion, find a job that doesnt 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. Thats quite a coincidence, in the sense of not being a coincidence at all.
Isn’t this a counterpoint to the healthcare religious exception cases?
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.
Can’t end well for the trucking company.
They didn’t happen to shop for judges sympathetic to their their cause.
Gee. I wonder where people get the idea that the President is really Muslim. How about his actions?
But this is totally different from pharmacists who won’t dispense morning-after pills. That’s totally wrong.
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.
That’s about as stupid as a muslim working in a pork factory and refusing to handle pork.
Oh, that's right! The truck driver is mooselimb and the florist is only a Christian.......
Yet he will make Catholics take part in abortions, how nice.
That’s the job. You don’t want it go get a different job. Now make the deliveries or get off the premises.
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.
I would never hire a Muslim for anything, and would never consider having a Muslim doctor. Life is tough enough without putting up with that ignorance.
