    That's a racist thing to say. Have some respect man, there are over 1.5 billion Muslims in the world, and most are good people

    That's exactly the problem. We've had far too much respect for far too many who want to kill us and eliminate 'our' way of life and 'our' freedoms.

    And besides, it's a religion, not a race.

    "there are over 1.5 billion Muslims in the world"

    Oh great, thanks for the reminder.

    "The EEOC argued that the company could have easily reassigned the two, who are of Somalian heritage.

    The company admitted liability earlier this year.

    Chief U.S. District Judge James Shadid had found in favor of the commission in March, after the company admitted liability.

    June Calhoun, one of the commission's attorneys on the case, said Star Transport didn't provide discrimination training to human resources staff, leading to "catastrophic results' for the two men.

    ...

    "The commission had tried to work with Star Transport on the issue a year before the lawsuit was filed, court records say.

    It's not clear whether the men will get the money, the Peoria Journal Star reports, as Star Transport went out of business earlier this year."

    Probably easier and light-years cheaper than fighting the EEOC.

    Since they don't like beer, perhaps Obama should sit down and have some heroin with everyone.

    The company is out of business so it is doubtful that they will get any money.

    It's not racist; it's anti- a particular religion.

    I have known a number of Muslims. Most of them were very reasonable and intelligent people who were opposed to violence.

    what's next? Nurses working at abortion clinics refusing to assist in abortions, because it's against their belief system?

    There's one at a local convenience store won't sell lottery tickets. He tells people the machine is down. You have to wait for when a westerner is manning the counter.

    Another really sad thread on RJ where posters lump an entire group of people together based on demographic and then make nasty, disparaging comments without caring. What's weird is that this topic actually has very little to do with the demographic of the drivers, even though so many here are fixated on it. Them being muslim is actually quite irrelevant as they could easily be Christian, Mormon or many other faiths and be opposed to delivering alcohol too.

    What most mature, non-bigoted people on here are focussing on is how messy (and ridiculous) it is to accommodate and defend everyone's religious opinions in a country of 300 million people. Sure the company could have found these guys another route. But then what about the drivers who don't believe in working on Sundays because of their religion? Or the driver who won't drive through states that allow gay marriage because of their religious freedom? Can you really run a business successfully that way? I am nervous as to how the government can defend these guys but then not defend others who use religion to deny us. That's what I believe we should be focusing on.

    I also have through RE transactions or maybe I should have said attempts at transactions. Results haven't been good.

    Woodfordr, what you're really missing is the bigger picture. You work in HR. What do you think will happen if this sort of religious accommodation gets out of hand? Employers simply won't hire you if you remotely look like you're from a Muslim country, or you have a Arabic name, or when to university in a predominately Muslim country, or any other clues. This will just backfire on all Muslims.

    This is just the tip of a clash of cultures.

    I've known many Muslims. Yes, good people, and all that, blah blah blah.

    My life would not be any different today had I not met them.

    I know one Muslim and it wasn't by choice. She was a coworker. She's not married but banging a black dude. She drinks too. She'd be stoned to death or honor killed by one of her brothers if she were back in the old country. But she still fasts during Ramalama Ding Dong! Evidently there are cafeteria Muslims too.

    Just to put my 2 cents in. People come to this country to have a better life and be an American. The accommodations are two way street. The driver should know as a trucker he has to haul whatever needs to be delivered as long as the merchandise are legal. If we keep accommodating...eventually he will not deliver anything that has pork...and the next thing is he will not deliver anything that‘s not HALAL. Then this country will have to adapt a muslim law SHARIA. For God‘s sake give me a break.Accommodation is something a company can offer if you have certain illnesses or handicaps that impair the production of your job...and it should not affect the best interest of the company or the company‘s business. This trucker clearly affecting the company‘s business and the accommodation should not be granted. He is unfit for duty. Similarly, I cannot apply for a police job that only let me write traffic tickets because my religion won‘t allow me to kill. I cannot go to a restaurant and say I am a vegetarian and all you cooking utensils has to be purified to cook my holy vegetarian meal. These are total unreasonable requests.

    That may have been true in the past. I'm not so sure that's true anymore for a vast number of immigrants. Immigrants seem to hold onto their old country allegiances, ways, customs, etc. longer, more so than in the past. This is facilitated by modern technology such as air travel, internet, television, telephone, etc. It's easier to maintain old ties rather than assimilate into a new culture. The result is you have children born in the USA of Muslim immigrants flying off to join Islamic extremist terrorist groups. These kids should have been assimilated into the mainstream culture and not concerning themselves with terrorist activities half way around the world.

    Agree completely.

    "The result is you have children born in the USA of Muslim immigrants flying off to join Islamic extremist terrorist groups."

    Anecdotal of course, such as a 21 yr old kid who was born in a wealthy Columbus 'burb from Muslim immigrant parents. He spewed Jew hate every chance he got. He and I got into it many times over that. He also told me he didn't consider himself American and that he'll always be Muslin first and Palestinian second.
