I am so tired of reading about this religious BS everyday.

I understand religion beliefs but C'mon, if everyone has to wear a uniform than EVERYONE should wear a uniform. If they don't like that then LOOK FOR ANOTHER JOB!!!!!

If they can't abide by the rules, find a job elsewhere. This is getting ridiculous. You don't see the Mexican Americans giving crap like this--THEY want to work!

Where do you draw the line? Does this line keep moving ? Is it really the courts function to settle every "work place dispute"? Will there ever be a balance struck? Can there be?

Then perhaps they should hop on the first place back home....Why are we continually breaking our backs to accomodate these people?

Isn't divesity wonderful!!!!!!! I wonder if they are legal? I wonder if we went to their country if we could file a similair suit??? Hard to believe that MUSLIMS are in the news again for being picked on! What is sadder yet is that they are able to do this and people will take them seriously!! When are we finally going to stand up and tell these people, this is our country,do things our way or go back to whereever you come from!!!

If you don't want to follow the rules and policies that a business has in place, then find a different place to work. America does not need to adapt to the lifestyles of the Somali population or any other group that immigrates here or is formed here. I am so tired of these people thinking that "freedom" means they can do whatever the hell they want. There are laws and there are rules. If you don't like it, go back to where you came from.

And these ridiculous cultures are trying to shove their oppressive ways down our throats at every turn. Funny how other countries cannot stand our arrogance when we try to force ourselves on them when we're visiting, yet we have to go out of our way to change everything for anyone moving here? America is dead.

The problem is, even moreover, exacerbated by the morons at the Strib who are in charge of headline priorities. Why are these ingrates granted even one tenth of an inch of column space? They should be ignored, like every other small, whiny special interest group in whom the Strib seems to take extra extra special interest. My hardcopy subscription to the Strib was jettisoned 2 years ago for exactly these kinds of infuriating reasons.
