The Obama administration helped two Muslim truck drivers working for an American company in the U.S. get a nice settlement after being fired for refusing to transport alcohol because it violates their religious beliefs.
It’s another one of those shameful only-in-America stories. It also marks the second time in two years that an Obama-appointed federal judge rules in favor of Muslims crying discrimination in the American workplace. In 2013 a freshly appointed federal judge in Northern California handed the administration a major victory, ruling that a Muslim woman’s civil rights were violated by an American clothing retailer that didn’t allow her to wear a head scarf as required by her religion. The lawsuit was filed on the woman’s behalf by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the federal agency that enforces the nation’s workplace discrimination laws.
