The U.S. Supreme Court thinks that a business should hire a person regardless of company standards.
The court voted 8-1 in favor of Samantha Elauf against retailer Abercrombie & Fitch. Elauf applied for a job wearing a headscarf because she is a Muslim and some Muslims require their women to cover their heads.
Store management in Tulsa declined to hire her. They did not decline to hire her because she is a Muslim but Abercrombie & Fitch has a distinctive style for employees and a head scarf just didn’t fit the style they prefer.
She charged discrimination. This raises several questions:
Did she apply, knowing she would be turned down, so that she could make this a test case to push the Islamic movement?
Does this ruling mean that if someone believes that wearing bib overalls is a part of their religion, that Abercrombie & Fitch must hire them?
If the Tulsa police academy gets an applicant who wants to wear a hijab, a skullcap or a turban instead of a regular uniform, and the police say no, is that discrimination?
And what must the military do to accommodate Muslim women who don’t want to wear standard issue uniforms?
In America, you have the right to follow your own religion. People shouldn’t be denied employment solely on the basis of their religion but employees should understand that some jobs require a certain style of dress.
And if that dress code is in contrast to their religion, they should respect that and seek employment elsewhere.
Muslims want to take over America and subject us to shariah law. Winning these kinds of lawsuits with liberal judges is just one of their strategies.
