Title: Muslim flight attendant: I was suspended for not serving alcohol

A Muslim flight attendant filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission claiming she was suspended from her job for not serving alcohol, which is against her religious beliefs, CBS Detroit station WWJ-AM reports.

Lena Masri, an attorney for the Council on American-Islamic Relations Michigan, said Charee Stanley followed management's directions, working out an arrangement with her coworkers to accommodate passenger requests for alcohol.

However, Masri said, ExpressJet Airlines put Stanley on administrative leave after another attendant filed "an Islamophobic complaint" that referenced Stanley's head scarf.

"We notified ExpressJet Airlines of its obligation under the law to reasonably accommodate Ms. Stanley's religious beliefs," Masri said at a news conference in Farmington Hills on Tuesday. "Instead, ExpressJet close to violate Ms. Stanely's constitutional rights, placed her on administrative leave for 12 months, after which her employment may be administratively terminated."

Masri said the arrangement Stanley had with other attendants to serve alcohol for her had been working out fine since Stanley converted to Islam about a month after becoming a flight attendant for ExpressJet.

"I don't think that I should have to choose between practicing my religion properly or earning a living," Stanley said. "I shouldn't have to choose between one or the other because they're both important."

Contacted by WWJ-AM for comment, airline spokesman Jarek Beem responded with the following statement:

"At ExpressJet, we embrace and respect the values of all of our team members. We are an equal opportunity employer with a long history of diversity in our workforce. As Ms. Stanley is an employee, we are not able to comment on her personnel matters."

The Islamic-relations council is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization with the mission "to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding."

Works for me. I'll get a job as a bartender, convert to Islam, refuse to serve customers, then sue for religious discrimination when I'm fired.

I can see this playing out now. She becomes a heroine to the fundie towel heads for refusing to serve alcohol to infidels,and then they murder her for talking to infidels to refuse to serve them without a male family member being with her and approving.

And I promise to try hard to not weep for her when she is murdered.

Serving alcohol is a job requirement. And it is not against the Koran to serve alcohol to infidels. It is against the Koran to drink it.

Muslims don't know the actual commandments of their god any better than Christians do.

If they did, the world would be a more peaceful place.

I tried to relax. “What do you want to talk about?” I said.

“The Century War,” said the Time Traveler.

I blinked and tried to remember some history. “You mean the Hundred Year War? Fifteenth Century? Fourteenth? Sometime around there. Between . . . France and England? Henry V? Kenneth Branagh? Or was it . . .”

“I mean the Century War with Islam,” interrupted the Time Traveler. “Your future. Everyone’s.” He was no longer smiling. Without asking, or offering to pour me any, he stood, refilled his Scotch glass, and sat again. He said, “It was important to me to come back to this time early on in the struggle. Even if only to remind myself of how unspeakably blind you all were.”

“You mean the War on Terrorism,” I said.

“I mean the Long War with Islam,” he said. “The Century War. And it’s not over yet where I come from. Not close to being over.”

You are confused. True, a follower is to avoid alchoholic consumption but they are also to impose the will of Allah for the non-believers; hence, even they are to avoid alchohol.

I'm asking if conservatives now support the "right" not to do the job an employee (or public official) agreed to do (instead of resigning from that job).

I'll point out that the KY clerk is on her fourth marriage. What if she ran across a Catholic or Church of Christ or Jehovah's Witness serving as a county clerk who don't believe in divorce. Does this much-married KY clerk think they should have the right to refuse to issue her and husband #5 a marriage certificate?

That's an interesting angle. According to a k a Stone she has since found religion herself recently - so she's allowed to impose her religious beliefs on others now.

That didn't work out so well for her. I predict she'll be in jail until the GoFundMe money runs out.

Yes I support this Muslim woman.

We have Baptists who work in our local restaurants waiting tables. One lady a family friend will not serve alcoholic beverages at the restaurant. Too easy, the assistant manager a Catholic serves the drinks.

The Muslim woman should also not serve pork sandwiches on the flight. Just like when vegans refuse to even handle meat.

An employee to a company is different then an elected official.

Please cite the Kentucky law that authorizes her to issue faggot pretend marriage licenses. You can't because no such law exists.

Well, her son is one of her deputy clerks so he has been refusing to sign sodomy marriage certificates too. Not that anyone has asked him to. The other deputy clerks are all accepting them, probably eyeing running for the big money as county clerk themselves in 2016. But you do have to wonder which of the KY clerk's serial adulteries...ahem...marriages this son was a product of, particularly considering his possible status as a bastard child of this woman's adulteries.

According to a k a Stone she has since found religion herself recently - so she's allowed to impose her religious beliefs on others now.

My friend educated me on her marriage journeys this past Friday while we lunched together.

Marriage #1 hubby was not the father of her twin boys - marriage #3 hubby was.

Marriage #2 hubby adopted the twin boys that weren't his.

Then she married #3 hubby, the father of the twin boys.

Now she's on hubby #4 and she has found religion.

I believe her divorces happened before she became a Christian.

But to answer the question. Yes I believe a Catholic if they knew she was previously married and divorced should have the liberty to refuse her a marriage certificate. Just as a Catholic refuses to perform abortions and write prescriptions for birth control. Yes I would lock arms with those Catholics if they were fired for standing on their faith and catechism.

We may not see issues with some of the reservations of others. But as commanded we strive not to offend.

Who am I to judge her conversion. Since her professed new birth we as Christians have only one thing to consider in her walk. This refusal to sign sodomite certificates.

So, so far she is doing pretty good.

Please cite the Kentucky law that authorizes her to issue faggot pretend marriage licenses.

You mean, the same laws that require her to issue interracial marriage licenses?

IOW, the decision of the Supreme Court when they decided decades back that miscegenation laws were unconstitutional and that a state could not forbid the marriage of a white man to a black or an Asian or a Hispanic.

So this KY clerk is already issuing marriage licenses based solely on previous decisions of the Supreme Court.

Loving v. Virginia, 388 U.S. 1 (1967),[X 1] [X 2] is a landmark civil rights decision of the United States Supreme Court, which invalidated laws prohibiting interracial marriage.

The case was brought by Mildred Loving, a black woman, and Richard Loving, a white man, who had been sentenced to a year in prison in Virginia for marrying each other. Their marriage violated the state's anti-miscegenation statute, the Racial Integrity Act of 1924, which prohibited marriage between people classified as "white" and people classified as "colored". The Supreme Court's unanimous decision determined that this prohibition was unconstitutional, reversing Pace v. Alabama (1883) and ending all race-based legal restrictions on marriage in the United States.

Yes, Kentucky was one of those states in the Loving verdict. All interracial marriage certificates in Kentucky have been issued solely on the authority of the Supreme Court's decision. No Kentucky laws were ever written to support interracial marriage.

Sixteen states saw their anti-miscegenation laws overturned by Loving v. Virginia in 1967:

Alabama (1819)
Arkansas (1836)
Delaware (1787)
Florida (1845)
Georgia (1788)
Kentucky (1792)
Louisiana (1812)
Mississippi (1817)
Missouri (1821)
North Carolina (1789)
Oklahoma (1907)
South Carolina (1788)
Texas (1845)
Tennessee (1796)
Virginia (1788)
West Virginia (1863)
