Sharia in America: EEOC Sues Transport Company for “failing to accommodate” Muslim Truck Drivers who Refused to Deliver Alcohol

Islamic law in America
22

The sharia administration strikes again. The EEOC is suing Star Transport for rightfully terminating two Muslims who refused to do their job. If these Muslim truck drivers don't want to deliver alcohol, then they shouldn't have taken a job in which part of their duties would be to deliver alcohol. It's that simple.

But no, Islamic supremacists chip, chip, chip away at the establishment clause, and in doing so, impose Islam on the secular marketplace. Muslim lawsuits against Hertz, Wal-Mart, Target, Disney and a host of other American businesses for special rights, special accommodation have been largely successful creating a special rights for a special class of people — which is an accordance with Islam (in which Muslims are superior to the kuffar). But it goes against every American tenet of individual rights and separation of mosque and state. Someone ought to remind the EEOC that their name is Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Equal as in no special rights for any particular class.

Consider the contrast: Catholics in the Obama regime have no right to refuse to provide abortions at Catholic hospitals. No accommodation for that religious belief. Only Islam gets accommodation from Barack Obama.

The Judge, U.S. District Judge James E. Shadid, was appointed by Barack Obama. Need I say more?

Agency
Charges Trucking Company Failed to Accommodate and Wrongfully Terminated
Two Muslim Employees For Refusal to Deliver Alcohol Due to Religious
Beliefs

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.

The EEOC is responsible for enforcing federal laws prohibiting
employment discrimination. Further information about the EEOC is
available on its website at www.eeoc.gov.

    Perhaps, Pamela, you weren’t paying attention in Poly-Sci 101, when they covered the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
    It is only self-induced blindness or ignorance that would imply that this federal action is a function of sharia. The current administration has nothing to do with the creation of laws that were written almost 40 years ago. It does, however hold a responsibility to enforce them. For you to suggest that this action is something malevolent or cowardly rather than a function of appropriate and responsible government behavior only serves to put a spotlight your often myopic perspective.
    If you want to beat up on something, beat up on the people who crafted Civil Rights Act and the law’s premises.
    Or are you instead actually trying to imply that Muslims shouldn’t count as protected individuals under the Civil Rights Act?

    A fine example of why musslimes make lousy employees. What employer will hire a muzzhead when he knows they litterally can’t handle some things that are considered normal in the western world such as alcohol porkproducts crucifixes; discrimination? Nay! I say common sense you don’t hire someone who is incapable of doing the job or unwilling to do it. And then I haven’t even mentioned all the special workplace requirements musslimes need ( demand) fully outfitted prayerplaces, five prayerbreaks a day it doesn’t make economic sense to hire musslimes if you’re not an islamic employer. Doesn;t make sense even if you are just look at how prosperous and developed musslime majority countries are.

    I’m not muslim- but I’d do the same thing – with gays, it usually doesn’t stop there and could get messy or violent.
    Not in my cab. Wanna make out, get a b*** job or get la** – Rent a room.

  • Uncle Samuel

    Same if I were a Limo driver. Same if it was a male/female couple. I won’t drive a rolling bordello. Sorry.

    It’s amazing how some people in our society believe that if someone is offended by this, or if someone is offended by that, the world should stop, and evolve around their demands.
    Nothing like wanting the minority to Govern the majority without holding an elected office.

    Unfortunately in the last 50 yeasr the law has been expanded by courts to include just about anything. The Supremes have gutted the constitution, and this is just one example where a persons property is no longer under their control. If I hire somewone, they work for me, I don’t work for them. When did this basic context change?
    And people wonder why America is going in the toilet economically? If you can’t see why, you clearly are not watching.

    I thought this Muslim law had to do with consumption of intoxicants. what does delivery of products for others consumption have to do with the Muslim population not being allowed to consume intoxicants.

    The message to the world’s Muslims: Come to a Western country. You get to DISOBEY your infidel supervisors at work, and then sue the infidels for LOTS of infidel money!
    DISOBEY INFIDELS! SUE FOR LOTS OF INFIDEL MONEY!

  • Islam is NOT a religion and violates the US Supreme law of America.

  • Jack Kemp

    Should have told the “offened” Muslims that they will be making deliveries to various 7-11s and gas station convenience stores owned by Muslims and selling beer, wine, and MD 40 (“Mad Dog” or Magen David) sweet wine coolers.

    Inch by inch, Muslims will demand the right to practice their religion.
    Each demand will infringe upon every ones Constitutional rights.
    ‘Government shall not make any law establishing a religion’

    After next years election Obama will “convert to Islam” and fully impose Sharia law.

  • Beagle

    They must ne laughing at the stupid kuffar. Islam forbids intoxication. Nothing in Islam about delivering alcohol. Some imam made that up.

  • But if a couple who own a bake shop in Oregon refuse to supply a cake for some Lesbians wedding, the gvmnt sues them.. it’s so inherently wrong that the law is applied based on the PC of the gvmnt -unequal justice under the law. Obama and crew are destroying fairness while asking for it in every talk. Hypocrites

  • Agreed. Just let a Christian mention the Bible at work and watch all hell break loose.

  • After the next election Obhammud can kiss my ass and call me Charlie.

  • There are agencies and companies that investigate all employees. You see their afvertisments on the Net all of the time. Companies that want to hire people need to check out their future or even present employees. If Islam is detected, even by marriage, DO NOT OFFER THEM A JOB. Why go through all this hassle when your employee now and in the future is a Muslim?
    I guess that every Muslim who owns a grocery store, 7-11, or even a gas station does not sell alcohol, or alcoholic beverages. If they do, then sue all of them for blasphemy.
    Please do not blame President Obama for all this nonsense. It is the fault of the Jews and other pseudo Liberals who championed the cause of Obama with generous donations of millions of dollars and their votes.

  • Rudy Grant from Canada

    Why give accommodation to Muslims when none will be returned.
    Islam is a fascist entity thinly wrapped in religion.
    The facade of religion is used as a shield to protect Islam’s murderous, racist, bigoted and misogynist ways.
    Non-Muslims of all faiths and those with no faiths must unite against this ideology.
    Together we can win!

    “the EEOC has routinely sued on behalf of Christian employees who, the EEOC claims, weren’t properly accommodated. For some cases during the Obama Administrations, for instance, see the Supercuts case (Christian who refused to work Sundays), the Guam Aircraft case (Jehovah’s Witness who refused to raise flags), the Rent-a-Center case (a Seventh-Day Adventist who refused to work Saturdays), the Walmart case (Mormon who refused to work Sundays, the Fries Restaurant Case (Pentecostal woman who insisted on wearing a skirt rather than pants).”

    Now that Star Transport is no longer, what happens to all the drivers that haven’t been paid. My guy is owed for his last checks.
