The Obama administration, like all the major American Jewish organizations, are on the side of the fringe against the core.
REPORT: After months of refusing to step in among several religious liberty lawsuits filed by Christians involving same-sex weddings, the Obama administration has jumped in feet first to aid Muslim truck drivers who don’t want to deliver liquor products for their employers.
In the case of a pair of Muslim truck drivers who were fired for refusing to deliver the loads required by their employers, the Obama administration’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) intervened and won a wrongful termination lawsuit on their behalf.
An Illinois jury awarded $240,000 in damages and back pay to two former truck drivers who were fired in 2009 after refusing to make beer deliveries. The Muslims cited their religion as a reason for refusing to do their jobs.
The Obama administration, though, reversed its recent practice of ignoring religious liberty lawsuits by adding its voice in support of the Muslims in this case. Along with informing the courts that the administration sided with the Muslims, the EEOC sent a congratulatory message after they won their suit.
“We are proud to support the rights of workers to equal treatment in the workplace without having to sacrifice their religious beliefs or practices,” the statement read. “It’s fundamental to the American principles of religious freedom and tolerance.”
