Supreme Court to Make Precedent-Setting Ruling on Sharia Law in U.S.


December 17, 2014 11:12am PST

You may remember the case of Samantha Elauf, who was denied employment by Abercrombie & Fitch after wearing a hijab to her interview in 2008. Elauf was 17 at the time. Since then, the clothing company has changed their policies, caving to Sharia Law. If they were hoping to avoid an extended legal battle by doing so, they sorely underestimated the wrath of radical Muslims.

Elauf’s case has now made it all the way to the Supreme Court, which will make a precedent-setting ruling early in 2015. Assisted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Elauf filed a religious discrimination lawsuit against Abercrombie & Fitch, claiming that the company failed to abide by federal law requiring employers to make reasonable accommodations for the religious practices of their employees.

Hopefully, the Supreme Court will see this suit for what is really is. Abercrombie & Fitch did not discriminate against Elauf because she is a Muslim, they simply requested that she abide by their dress code, just like all of their other employees. The Conservative Tribune reports that an assistant manager originally hired Elauf, but that decision was overridden by a district manager when she broke their policy forbidding black clothing and hats.

The hypocrisy of radical Muslims never ceases to amaze. The fact that Elauf even applied to work at Abercrombie & Fitch in the first place proves she is less than committed to her faith. The clothing company is known for their skin-tight tank tops and barely-there booty shorts, not exactly Sharia-compliant garb. This just proves Elauf wants to have her cake and eat it too.

Share this report if you think the Supreme Court should use this opportunity to send a strong message about Sharia Law in America; namely, that is has no place here.
