Obama Sues Trucking Company For Requiring Muslim Drivers to Deliver Alcohol

Obama Sues Trucking Company For Requiring Muslim Drivers to Deliver Alcohol

As a former over-the-road truck driver, I understand that there are times when you might be less than thrilled with a particular load. You might not like where you have to pick it up, where it is going, the road to be traveled, or possibly for a Muslim, the product you are transporting.

If the driver chooses to voice those concerns, the answer in most cases would be the same. In some form or other, the he would be told to deal with it, reminded of the delivery time and the conversation would be over.

That was the case recently for two Muslim truck drivers who claim to have felt that their religion precluded them from transporting alcohol. The trucking company didn’t force the issue, but they did make it clear that drivers are expected to take the loads they are assigned and informed them of where to park their rigs. That should have been the end of the story, with both parties free to act within their rights.

That wasn’t the end, though. We’ve entered into a new phase in America, the Totalitarianism of Tolerance, where race-baiters, homosexuals and Muslims are special and deserving of more rights than the common folk.

On behalf of the former drivers, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is suing Star Transportation for failing to accommodate the drivers who refused to do their jobs.

If they had accepted jobs as bartenders and then refused to mix drinks, would the EEOC have acted in the same manner? Delivering alcohol is part of the duties these guys signed up for. If they don’t like it, they are free to go to work somewhere that doesn’t transport alcohol. They chose the wrong company. Things happen.

What is the federal government doing involved?

Had these men been treated differently from the drivers as a whole, then an inequality would have existed and perhaps the EEOC would have had a legitimate concern. Treating them the same as all other drivers only makes them more in compliant with the Equality of Opportunity that the EEOC is supposed to guarantee.

Below is the press release for the government’s action from the EEOC website:

PEORIA, Ill. – 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. According to EEOC District Director John P. Rowe, who supervised administrative investigation prior to filing the lawsuit, “Our investigation revealed that Star could have readily avoided assigning these employees to alcohol delivery without any undue hardship, but chose to force the issue despite the employees’ Islamic religion.”

Failure to accommodate the religious beliefs of employees, when this can be done without undue hardship, violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which prohibits discrimination on the basis of religion. The EEOC filed suit, (EEOC v. Star Transport, Inc., Civil Action No. 13 C 01240-JES-BGC, U.S. District Court for the Central District of Illinois in Peoria, assigned to U.S. District Judge James E. Shadid), after first attempting to reach a voluntary settlement through its statutory conciliation process. The agency seeks back pay and compensatory and punitive damages for the fired truck drivers and an order barring future discrimination and other relief.

John Hendrickson, the EEOC Regional Attorney for the Chicago District Office said, “Everyone has a right to observe his or her religious beliefs, and employers don’t get to pick and choose which religions and which religious practices they will accommodate. If an employer can reasonably accommodate an employee’s religious practice without an undue hardship, then it must do so. That is a principle which has been memorialized in federal employment law for almost50 years, and it is why EEOC is in this case.”

The EEOC’s Chicago District Office is responsible for processing charges of discrimination, administrative enforcement and the conduct of agency litigation in Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and North and South Dakota, with Area Offices in Milwaukee and Minneapolis.

More accommodation for the special class of Muslims in America, and we are importing more of them every day, courtesy of B. Hussein Obama. This effort to raise Muslims and others above the average “unclean” American with traditional values continues. The government has an agenda to meet.

  1. And these Muslims dare to call their religion one of peace and tolerance? If it was peaceful and tolerant, why do we have Muslims murdering Christians in the Middle East? Why are Muslims taking over governments in Arabic countries? Why are Muslims so keen on killing Jews and destroying Israel? Why do Muslims get offended by a lot of things and threaten to kill people who poke fun at their beliefs, like the producers of South Park, when they poked fun at Allah and Mohammed? Why do Muslims commit pretty much all of the terrorist attacks on American soil and other countries like India and Britain?

    Whenever a Muslim says their religion is one of peace and tolerance, I can't help but laugh. They're all lies! Their religion is fake. Islam is a hateful cult and many of their followers are murderers who do evil things in the name of their Allah.

    The majority of things you Muslims do in the name of Allah are only gonna buy you a ticket to Hell. I hope you enjoy it down there.

  2. Really if it had been a Christan who felt the same way I bet nothing would have been done.

  3. Why do they have a CDL…they should be on the list of terrorism?? If they didn't want to take the load then they should be fired. If it was a load of expolosives they would of been fine with that I am sure. Tired of this crap!! We all should live by the same rules ..regardless of special rights!!

    • Dan, More than likely they were just a couple of ZBlack drivers who wanted special priveleges, so they converted over to Musim and started to use the Muslim religion in their favors. best the boss could have done was, like our dispatchers did, and when they refused the load, move them back to the bottom of the board and they would have to wait till another load offering comes up, on their turn. When they keep this up and realize that they are costing the company money and have to ‘lay over’ all the time to wait on another load, they will eventually take what is offered. I retired after 30 years and now I see that Unless you are classed as ‘hazardous’ it is easy to get a CDL by just taking 2-3 weeks driving around a racetrack. But Hazardous haulers have to be reistered with the Federal Government, whethere you are an American or Foriegn. Alcohol is considered Falmmable and hazardous, so i wonder why they were even offered them loads in the first place. Company may have been looking for a reason to fire them in the first place.

  4. If they are on a green card then send them back to their land of peace. No special treatment for these adherents to a barbaric, murdering religion.

  5. Im sure the employer in the beginning said "We transport everything from wood to alcohol…" and they signed the papers…

  6. that is absolutely ridiculous!! when you drive truck for a company, you take the load thats assigned to you. you dont want to take the load, then you dont have a job. if you are offended by what the company hauls, please, go back to your own country and drive for them. America, stop letting muslims dictate what we do and stop letting congress and mr obama run all over us and giving preferential treatment to muslims. you know damn well if it was a Christian(what mr obama professes to be) they would be tearing up the courts trying to stop them. in fact, isnt what they do to Christians right now considered persecution?

  8. Not true. If a Christian doesn't want to supply goods or perform services for a gay wedding because they believe it is against the will of God, the government forces them to do what is against their religion anyway. So there you have it. Something would absolutely be done, it's just that the government would be actively supporting the opposite party.

  10. When you apply for a job and it asks "is there anything that prohibits you from being capable of performing all duties required to work here?" If they checked no then screw them. They should've found a job for a you company and then they wouldn't be in the situation they're in. The trucking company could have also just not sent them on jobs as most truckers make their money via loads delivered. And told them "sorry all we have are deliveries for alcohol…"

  11. Look all I know we are being put out of every thing it is getting to the point we are going to be criminal's for our beleafs and it is not right I don't have any thing against any one I try to treat people good and don't discreamnate against any one I have friends of all types they know were I stand as I know what they do I'm being judge by what and how I live my life not on what they do all I ask is give me the same rights too

  12. Assign them to haul a load of PIGS. I hate muslimes. I worked 15 years in the middle east and I became Archie Bunker, If you are not a Christian and Conservative to HELL with you.

  13. We all know this is political BS. You don't see obama sueing the muslims for not wanting to do it like the Christian bakery refusing the gay wedding cake. Again this is a double standard. If they were hired for a job then do the job and stop your whining about your cult religion. If you don't like it quit and do something else. I am sick of hearing about islam and muslims

  14. I was thinking that too. Expanding on it … I'd bring in guard pigs for every truck. Then, I'd have every drivers seat and steering wheel reupholstered in pig skin. Hire attractive women who like hot pants and wear T shirts with liquor and pork producer adds on them. Rename the company "The Crusaders" with their emblem on the trucks as the logo and have it printed on all truckers mandatory apparel.
    These Islamic spawns of satan are a conglomerated puke fest of a contaminated malignant cult of hate and ignorance.

  15. This is ridiculous unless you are an owner operator you do not get to pick and choose what you transport

  16. The government is making it damn impossible for people who own a company to make money which in turn makes it impossible for the employees to make money with this kind of stupid bullshit

  17. Joanna Hyatt if the company has a cafeteria for their employees, then for breakfast bacon & sausage and lunch/dinner (as Peter Brady would say) 'Pork chops & apple sauce'.

  18. Matt Snyder

    or say Christian Pharmacist who don't want to sell the morning after pill. The federal govt didn't weigh in on their side.

  19. Hmmm so a baker in Oregon refusing to bake a cake for a gay couples wedding should not of been forced to go against their religion? the double standard alive and well in America.

  20. People, use this as your precedent to refuse service to gays if it violates your religious convictions. USE IT>.

  21. muslem get many perks from their religion. funding abortion through the aca is contrary to my belief, so why can't i get a government agency to stand for my belief?.

  22. America is allowing the rights of the minority to override the rights of the majority. maybe that's why so many dead people vote for dems.

  23. yes this all looks and sounds ridiculous. But we Christians know God is in control. These things and many more to come are going to keep happening. This world is not our home. This world is cursed and is the playground of that old adversary, the evil one, who has many fooled and believing his lies. Stay focused on what is of God and keep praying and never allow the unjust or evil or wrongs you see deter you for the Truth and the wisdom of the Word of our Holy and sovereign God.

  24. There not required to drink it. Whats next pork? The would gladly haul explosive devices. If they dont like their job get another one at a muslim trucking company.They are in America, do as we do or go home!!!

  25. So since I work for this company do I get extra money for doing this extra work somelse dose not want to do where is my pay raise for doing there job

  26. When I was driving long haul, I didn't care what I was loaded with just wanted to be loaded. Can't make any money sitting at a truck stop. Wheels have to be turning to make money.

  27. And if I don't want to work Sunday because it's a holy day, I'm told work it or get fired. Where's the gov when I need them.

  28. This country has passed the tipping point. All those who hope to ever see the U.S.A. again, NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT! WTF? WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!

  29. Cynthia Ann Cravens Love
    Could you please use some punctuation. I may agree with your post…I JUST CAN'T READ IT!!!

  30. It amazes me that they arbore that they can complain about Western ways, yet they still want to live here, why is that? If we are such bad people what draws them here, why not stay in their own country and bitch from afar. If this law suit goes through it is going to set a precedence for all future lawsuits and will be harder to get a fair trial. These muslims are trying undermine this country, its laws and beliefs, we can't let this happen, we have to stand up for our MORALS as it is clear they have none themselves.

  31. That's a splendid idea except it's grounds for a lawsuit and possible fines from labor department for 'retaliatory behavior creating a hostile environment'.

  32. Well I wonder if the employer will hire a person of this religious back ground in the future if weighing cannadits for future employment hhuuuummmmm

  33. Gee, I guess the separation of Church and State is only used for convenience and effect …. if a lawyer can use it against someone to benefit his client, it's the law, if someone uses it against that lawyer or his client, then a lawsuit is needed to challenge or change it ….. once again, the tolerance of the Muslim/Islam religion is shown to be the exact opposite, and the ass kissing liberal rump swab lawyers and legislature can't wait to slap "we, the people" with a lawsuit and a "racist" label …..

  34. I completely agree with you. Obama is a prime example of this. He stand up for Muslims but rejects Christians. He makes special concessions for Muslims but cares little for Christians or Americans. Muslims are not a peaceful religion. If they can't do what the job requires of them then they should be fired. They should not get special treatment.

  35. My husband drove OTR for 22 years and is a Christian. One day, his load was to be picked up at a dock and turned out to be "Hustler" magazine. He commented on his belief and the load and was told there was no one else in the area to take the load. He took the load and from that time on, his dispatcher tried to not have him on those kinds of loads. But, occasionally it just was necessary to pull one. He did it without comment and he was one of their most trusted drivers. That's the way to handle it professionally and keep the company happy with you. When he retired, he had 3M miles, no tickets, no freight claims, and no late loads.

  36. Islam is NOT a "RELIGION" of peace, it's a CULT of death. I do NOT respect Islam or Muslims because they have NO respect for anyone else even other muslims that don't agree with them. Piss on the whole lot including thatTRAITOR occupying the WH.

  37. my husband drives OTR and is a mormon but you dont see him throwing a tissy over delivering anything…..they all pay the same regardless. these ppl are just doing this to see how far they can take it and how far the obama government will allow! so far obama is winning on the race baiting!!

  38. Wow Obama can sue a trucking company to fight for the religious rights of muslims and at the same time force churches to provide for contraceptive insurance… Am I the only person seeing this in this country or what!!!! The heck with Christian beliefs which this country was founded on, and he will push the muslim religion. Where is the equality!!!!

  39. As a former truck driver, and employee of many different companies, I can state with confidence that if he didn't want the job, he shouldn't take the job. That having been said, the vast majority of companies will make some sort of accommodation if they are informed of the situation and asked for appropriate consideration. Aside from that, suck it up and take the load.
    Why the EEOC is involved, and why Star is being sued is a mystery. EEOC is the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. These drivers were treated equally. All drivers are assigned various loads. Sometimes it's paper, sometimes it's books, sometimes it's alcohol, sometimes it's steel. It's a load. Everyone gets them. Every employee is subject to be assigned the same type of load. So, I don't see how EEOC has a complaint.

  40. It's bs how Christian rights are stepped on, but if this exact same case involved Christians (a lot of us don't like the idea of alchahol either) and the government wasn't standing for their rights wouldn't we be up in arms about it? Don't get me wrong I'm no fan of Islam I thing the entire religion is a slap in the face to the trueth of salvation.. But being Christian lets not forget what it means to be one. Do unto others as we would have other do unto is, as only one example.

  41. Send every fucking one of them back home or where ever they want to go one way trip for those born here. I am sick of hearing about their intolerant religion. These people are animals and should be treated like animals.

  42. Matt Snyder This is what Arizona SB 1062 was for. It was to protect these rights. Just as a Christian would be forced to photograph a homosexual wedding, an African American would be forced to serve a KKK, or a Jewish deli would be forced to special order a spiral-sliced ham. With the present wording, the word "person" does not protect individuals. The update in wording would have protected these people, and rather than promote discrimination against LGBT community, it would have recognized them as a "person" in the legal tense, and even they would have the right to deny service when doing so would violate their beliefs. They protested against the bill, and in doing so, they shot themselves in the foot.

  43. Daniel Tintinger What draws them here is their belief that they are supposed to rule the world. They are trying to do to the US what they have done to so many countries in the Middle East and Africa. Take over. Eventually they will be killing anyone here who doesn't agree with them.

  44. Obummer can sue for his muslum brothers,when it is against their beliefs.BUT, Arizona can't stand for their beliefs…This isn't America any more..this is like the government that hitler wanted.

  45. It doesn't matter what religion or anything else you do or feel if the present government doesn't like what you do or think they will tell you what to do or think. It is time for the citizens of this wonderful country to stand up for what is right for all and get rid of this atheistic, money grubbing, and bigotry government once and for all.

  46. They should have never been hired in the first place, they ought to know in trucking you have to haul all sorts of stuff, so why the hell do muslins want to take a job knowing they may have to take it. I would fire thie A$$ too if they din't want to take the load.

  47. What makes a difference. People have no right to turn down your business because they do not believe in what you want. Like wedding cakes for gay. But be a Muslim and you do not have to go against your views. Double standard.

  48. Ok, hero, gays and Muslims have no greater rights than you do. The simple fact is that all employers have a legal requirement to make reasonable accommodation for a persons religious practice and the company failed to meet that obligation. The simple solution don't assign them runs with

  50. I would give them a squat. They are fired up! Take your time crap and get the hell out of this country, that's the way it works buddy!

  51. I sure hope that the lawyers that took this case for these terrorist Lose this case, and I sure hope that the rest of the terrorist ( here in AMERICA ) that think they can get away with suing because their religious beliefs were violated , dont get away with these frivolous law suits . This crap is getting redicilious and needs to stop.

  52. WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IF A CATHOLIC REFUSED TO DELIVER A TRUCKLOAD OF CONDOMS????……THE ISSUE WOULD HAVE BEEN DROPPED…..THAT IS WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED…….RIGHT?????

  53. I'm lost here, does it also allow them to pull the truck over several times a day to pray. That's got to add up to a couple hours a day. Makes me want to start a religion, that to work is against its teachings. I'll put it in the come to America booklet, in every language. To be sure we get everyone. What happened to America.

  54. The drivers have a contract (written or not) to deliver the goods. Case closed.

    Perhaps the EEOC folks who are pushing this case should be pushing back at their superiors and FIXING the defect in the law that they are trying to enforce.

    I'm sure that when POTUS hears about the defect, he will create an executive order to relieve the EEOC of enforcement duties.

  55. What a sad little world you must live in, to think that that 1.5 billion men, women and children-23% of the entire population-is out to kill you.

  56. Lee Joseph Mitchell if indeed you use the Qur'an
    as your book of worship YOU sir are taught to kill those who do not believe as you do…..denie and you are a liar

  65. Taqiyya which Obama has down to a science, Evil to the core is islam. Tell the murdering barbarians about Surah 2:256. Obviously they haven't red that!

  66. Lee Joseph Mitchell I've neither seen nor heard of a Islamic group, sect, nation, group of nations that does not either remain essentially quiet (tacitly acquiescent) or actively support the terrorist tactics of Islam. Now, if you would be so kind as to SPELL out clearly, unequivocally, in a straightforward way WHO and WHICH Muslims are those who actively stand against the violence of their religious counterparts, I would be very please. Otherwise, you simply spout meaningless tripe that establishes nothing.

  67. Richard Kreitenstein fine them for what? They've committed no crime, and you cannot legally compel them to leave the country if they are American citizens guilty of no crime.

  68. Richard Kreitenstein I find it ironic that you expect every single Muslim to disavow violence in which they don't participate, but Christians feel no need to incessantly disabuse connections with WBBC, KKK, etc? It would be far quicker to enumerate the Muslim organizations that DO support terrorism, than those that don't.

  69. Lee Joseph Mitchell If they hold a legitimate position with a licensed firm, and if their position (which they voluntarily sought and accepted) requires of them to deliver items they may personally find objectionable for religious reasons, they should either quit or be terminated. If they are placed under court order to do the job for which they have been employed, and should they still refuse, then they should be fined and cut off from any possible public funding.

  70. Anna McKenzie They have, they just choose to ignore it, like Christians choose to cherry pick the verses that are expedient for their ends.

  71. Lee Joseph Mitchell – to get back on subject, why should Muslims be given special privileges when there is NOTHING in the Qu'ran that teaches Muslims cannot handle a bottle of alcohol (or transport) it?

    Muslims are being given extra privileges because of Obama's sympathetic stance for them (his promise to "stand with Muslims" from his book). Yet, this same administration refuses to support Christians who are attempting to exercise their rights.

    This is merely another way that Muslims are attempting to force Sharia law onto a society. This is the way they've done it in the past and it is how they are doing it now.

  72. I agree that if a judge orders that they must comply, then they should do so. But that's not the same thing as deportation, nor grounds for intelligibility for aide.

  73. Lee Joseph Mitchell – They simply should NOT be given special privileges.

    Recently, a lesbian entered a barber shop (where the barbers were all Muslim) and wanted a business haircut. The Muslims refused to give her one on religious grounds. What do you think will happen?

    Nothing.

  74. Lee Joseph Mitchell Sir, I will neither waste time nor energy speaking with an apologist for Islam. You have not spoken directly to the point because you cant. When you can show me (and everybody else, for that matter) where Muslim immigration, either ancient or modern, has proven beneficial to the people and lands into which they immigrated and has not been followed by Muslim-instigated religious turmoil, violence, increased welfare rolls, etc. etc., then and only then can you begin to hope to change minds/hearts. Right now you bring nothing to the discussion but more of the same old drivel used by Islamists and their sycophants.

  75. This is nothing to do with sharia. If you as a christian say that transporting porn infringes on your 1st amendment rights, you'd probably have a decent case. Why are you so upset by someone of another faith seeking to exercise the same rights you expect for yourself?

  76. I as a Muslim and a gay rights advocate hope the judge goes for equality and consistency and rules in favor of the lesbian.

  78. Lee Joseph Mitchell – I've read the Qur'an three times. I've also studied some of the Hadith. I've also read and studied the Bible, Lee.

    But here is what I do and I encourage people to do the same thing.

    Take Jesus and Muhammad and COMPARE them; their lives, what they taught and how they lived.

    Between them, who carried a WEAPON? Who not only preached LOVE, but LIVED it? Who actually HELPED people? Which one slaughtered people, sometimes into the hundreds?

    It's pretty clear and even a Muslim like you can figure it out. Many Muslims today believe that to be a GOOD Muslim, they must live lives that mirror the life of Muhammad.

    In a sense then, the Muslims of today who do NOT live as Muhammad lived are the ones who are not truly Muslims. But that's the age old disagreement between major Islamic factions, isn't it (that and who had the right to be the leader after Muhammad's death)?

    Muslims want us to believe that Islam is a religion of PEACE, yet that is NOT the way Muhammad lived. He did not live peacefully, nor did he preach peace.

    Jesus – on the other hand – did His best to get along with everyone. He never killed anyone. He essentially lived a life of love.

    While followers of BOTH individuals can misunderstand what that leader taught, the truth is found in the two people themselves: Jesus and Muhammad.

    I choose Jesus any day for actually being the founder of Christianity, the true religion of peace because it has created peace between humanity and Jehovah.

  80. Lee Joseph Mitchell Well, good Muslim (contradiction in terms) why don't you go advocate for gay rights among the tolerant, peaceful people, other creatures of your ilk. Goodbye, sir. My time with Islamic apologists is up. Happy Shariah!

  82. Lee Joseph Mitchell – I would never seek employment with a company that MIGHT cause me to transport porn, or an establishment that sells it. It's that simple. I would not seek to be hired and then later when asked to transport it act as if my Christian rights were being ignored.

    And yes, it has EVERYTHING to do with Sharia law and you know it, but refuse to admit it.

    You know how it works, but taqiyya is allowed and encouraged within Islam until there are enough Muslims in an area that gives them enough power. Dearborn, MI is a perfect case in point.

  83. Lee Joseph Mitchell – I'd be happy to share with you other sections of the Qur'an that teach physical jihad until the "infidels" are no more.

    And before you start talking about the "context" of the Qur'an, let's understand that there is very little context to it. It was written over the space of roughly 50 years by followers of Muhammad, who wrote down what he said.

    The truth is that the Qur'an is a very easy book to understand, even by "infidels."

  85. Lee Joseph Mitchell – and there is NOTHING in the Qur'an that teaches that Muslims cannot be in the same room where pork sausage is located. Nothing at all.

    As far as it creating a hostile environment, why don't we hear about orthodox Jews screaming bloody murder in the same situation if they happened to work at a place where a cafeteria offered these items? They would simply ignore them and choose not to eat them.

    Muslims are under the same dietary restrictions, yet they take it a step further and say they can't TOUCH pork, which is absolute crap.

    Yet, the workplace should not offer pork in their cafeteria IF Muslims also work there because as you say, it would create a "hostile" environment?

    I see, so people are supposed to bend to the the will of Muslims and deprive themselves of the things they like.

    Funny, but even though you repeat "THERE IS NO COMPUNCTION IN ISLAM," there actually is quite a bit of it.

  86. This is insane. Why shoulld a muslim driver be given special considerations. Are we not all to be treated the same? If they don't want to do the job, they should not have applied for the position. Maybe all truck drivers should refuse to deliver anything they don't approve of…where would this leave consumers? Hazardous drivers should refuse to deliver fuel for planes to fly the odamnas around, etc.

  87. It's okay for muslims not to do anything that's against their religious beliefs,but when Christians practice their beliefs they get sued lose their business and livelihood..

  88. As for over thirty years, I have always been a company driver. People must underestand that the company does not always just' take any load that is offered to them'. When i was finished delivering, I was expected to 'check in' with my dispatcher or agent that was taking care of our company's trucks. We were offered loads back towards our area and were not always what we wanted to haul, but it was what the dispatcher knew in advance that our boss would expect us to haul if it paid the right freight charges. Companies dispatch loads to drivers who are available at the time and within a certain area, and always try to accomodate them as to the direction they would like to go with a load. If the alcohol was what was to take the driver in a designated way, then that was what was availabl or he could have let them layover a night for another load to come up on the board.. Otherwise, let those Bastards get their own trucks and become owner operators and then take the loads they want, not tell the company what they are going to do to satisfy their asses. I'm thinking these drivers were not Muslims until they realized what they could do if they didn't get their way, so they became asshole Mooslims.

  89. Yup, keep it up, you inbred libtrash – bend over to protect "religious freedom" of Muslim scum, but if a Catholic baker doesn't agree with gay marriage and won't bake the cake, sue his ass, put him out of business and ruin his life.

  90. I had muslum drivers before refuse beer loads and that was there last day of employment. they are the worse drivers always late, never keep there trucks up, want to get paid to do nothing. screw them I refuse to dispatch any

  91. the driver is just supposed to drive and not ask what is inside the truck for its none of their business and i hope the trucking company took obama to court

  92. “Everyone has a right to observe his or her religious beliefs, and employers don’t get to pick and choose which religions and which religious practices they will accommodate…." So, as a practicing Christian, I don't have to drive that load on Sunday? YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! Love it.

  93. So after reading this, I realize all christians who want to worship on the wholly day of Sunday can take off as long as it doesn't cause undo hardship. So all christians are entitled to have Sundays off so they can worship! What is good for one, is good for all! All christians should take the wholly day off for now on. If your employer says you have to work on Sundays just site this law. I will be curious to see the courts outcome in this case as it will set precedent for all future cases.

  94. Well Ben you have hit the nail on the proverbial head, the pork loads are next, then it will be everything else under the sun. They will not be able to deliver women's clothing, or anything not sanctified by Mo- homo-ed (mahamed) don't knowhow to spell it. But soon if this EEOC case wins, you will have to hire muslims and pay them to stay at home because it will be against their religion to do any work for non-muslim.

  95. This is so totally wrong. The law also says that your employer cannot discriminate against you and make you work on your Sabbath day because of your religion but they do. I end up working almost every Sunday and if I were to complain I would have no Job. I don't see Obama stepping in to save my job. What is up with that?
