Why Would a Devout Muslim Want to Work at Abercrombie and Fitch? -Breitbart  Jun 2, 2015
The Supreme Court ruled Monday in favor of Samantha Elauf, a Muslim woman who sued for discrimination after not being hired by Abercrombie & Fitch, because her insistence on wearing the Muslim hijab conflicted with their dress code.
  Justice Antonin Scalia said of the 8-1 ruling, “This is really easy” – but neither he nor the Justices who voted with him showed any indication of realizing what was really at stake in this case.
She won an award of $20,000 in 2011, but a Court of Appeals overturned that, with the judge explaining: “Ms. Elauf never informed Abercrombie before its hiring decision that she wore her head scarf, or ‘hijab,’ for religious reasons.” The Supremes should have taken the hint. They didn’t.
Why didn’t she? It wasn’t inconsequential, at least not for her. She spent the ensuing years suing, losing, suing again, appealing until her case reached the highest court in the land. So why didn’t she mention it? What was her agenda? That is perfectly clear now.
I ask you: what devout Muslim girl would want to work for a firm that peddles erotic, sexy clothes and soft-porn images? Their catalogue is not allowed in many homes. Many parents have rightly judged that it is too racy for their teenage daughters. So what is the pious hijabed one Samantha Elauf doing wanting a job like that?
