Why Would a Devout Muslim Want to Work at Abercrombie and Fitch? -BreitbartJun 2, 2015
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?
