This is "Separation of Church & State"?

U.S. Files Discrimination Lawsuits On Behalf Of Muslims
The Obama Administration’s taxpayer-funded Islamic defense program has been quite busy this week, filing several discrimination lawsuits on behalf of Muslims in different parts of the country and holding Justice Department meetings to discuss prosecuting “anti-Muslim hate speech.”

The legal actions come on the same week that the White House and various federal agencies—including the Department of Homeland Security—hosted a special workshop to provide members of radical Islamic groups with direct access to U.S. government funding, assistance and resources. Read all about that here.

Now the administration is flexing its legal muscle in its ardent quest to befriend the enemy. A federal civil rights agency known as the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has filed discrimination lawsuits against companies in Nebraska, California and Colorado for discriminating against Muslims by not accommodating prayer breaks and forbidding a headscarf on the job.

The government sued meatpacking plants in Greeley Colorado and Grand Island Nebraska for religious and racial harassment because dozens of Muslim employees were “denied prayer time” during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. The lawsuit seeks changes to policies and procedures to accommodate Muslim workers, payment for past and future damages and punitive damages.

In a third lawsuit filed this week the EEOC claims that an outdoor apparel store discriminated against a Muslim female job applicant in northern California because she wore a headscarf known as a hijab. The company has a longstanding employee dress code banning any sort of head covering but the government asserts that in this particular case it’s discriminating on the basis of religion.

Also this week, the Justice Department met with a coalition of Islamic groups that demand the administration criminally prosecute anti-Muslim rhetoric as hate speech. Besides investing more resources to combat discrimination against Muslims, coalition leaders want Attorney General Eric Holder to “make a strong public statement” condemning hate crimes, harassment and discrimination against Muslims.

It certainly sounds like its only separation of your church and the state. After all if you have a taxpayer funded Islamic defence program perhaps you should try to get a Catholic defense program , Episcopalian defense program, Baptist defense program, Amish defense program, Mormon defense program, and one for all those loony fringe cults out there as well.

It seems that Islam has successfully managed to confuse the left into thinking of them in terms of race that they fail to recognise them as a religion.

The above examples are of course ridiculous but so is the idea of an Islamic defence program.

Hey, the Constitution doesn't say anything about the "separation of MOSQUE and state!" Oh, wait. It doesn't actually mention "separation of church and state" either. Oh well.

On the "requiring special rules" for Muslims part you mention: I remember reading that in English hospitals the infection rates are going through the roof because they can't force their growing number of Paki nurses to expose their forearms "like whores" to scrub up properly.

They should be free to practice their religion but, as Mama used to say, "Rules is rules." Don't like 'em? Find another job.

Some day soon someone just has to tell the national government, "Bull shit, now get the hell out of here".

If it's my property or my business we follow the "Golden Rule". I make all the gold and pay your salary or wage with it, so I get to make all the rules. You don't like it, quit and go find someone else who will put up with your sorry ass attitude!
