Should employers be forced to accommodate every nuance and detail of someone's religious beliefs? It seems that some would say; yes.

Ariens Manufacturing, in Wisconsin, use to allow a Muslim to leave their job on the factory line and prayer, twice daily. Fellow employees had to pick up the slack or the line shut down.

In case you were unaware, some of your fellow employees are not Muslims and your faith does not require their co-commitment to it.

Nor can you just walk off the line.  You do it on your schedule break. Ariens built you a flipping prayer break room, with wall to wall carpet and pulpit for crying out loud. It is highly doubtful there are any Christian chapels, Jewish synagogues, atheistic places void of anything, or Buddhist temples and shrines. In that they were being benevolent. AND discriminating against everybody else!

Ariens had to change their policy however because, “our factory environment does not allow for unscheduled breaks in production,” said a company spokesperson.

“We are open to any of the employees returning to work under the new policy or will look for openings in shifts that do not coincide with prayer time. We respect their faith, and we respect their decision regardless of their choice to return to work or not.”

Well, being affronted, as always, the Muslims walked off the job (10 chose to comply—the smart ones). “We pray by the time” said the Islam gangster Ibrahim Mehemmed. “So they say, ‘If you don’t pray at the break time,’ they give us this [unemployment] paper to just leave.”

Too bad for those who quit. They can go stand in the unemployment line and pray all day. Oh wait. They quit. Maybe they don’t get unemployment. Even better.

Ariens is not breaking the Equal Opportunity Employment laws, because “…an employer does not have to accommodate an employee’s religious beliefs or practices if doing so would cause undue hardship to the employer…”

No different than business staying open on Christmas, during Hanukaah, Rosh Hashannah, and so forth.

Turning the page, and something else to consider…are all these companies that are accommodating Islam, building them prayer rooms, and giving Muslims special dispensation,breaking anti-discrimination laws with respect to everybody else?

It is good to see Ariens standing up to Shariah, but they should be ashamed for not having Americans working there to begin with. There are plenty of Americans in need of jobs.
