While Christians are prosecuted for not baking cakes for homosexuals; “More than 40 Somali Muslims have apparently decided that if they can’t pray when they want to pray, they would just as soon stay home and collect unemployment. When Green Bay firm Ariens Manufacturing announced Thursday that they would no longer allow their Muslim employees to leave the production line twice a day for prayer, many of them said they would not be back.
‘I have been 35 years in America and I’ve never heard of a company that is not allowing its employees to pray five minutes,’ said employee Adan Hurr. ‘It is absolutely discrimination on its face.’
Except, of course, for the fact that Ariens is in no way prohibiting its Muslim employees from praying. According to a statement from the company (and the employees are not disputing this point), Ariens is merely ‘asking employees to pray during scheduled breaks in designated prayer rooms.’ The company can’t afford to bring production to a stand still twice a day while 53 employees talk to Allah. The fact that Ariens apparently has designated prayer rooms should, by itself, demonstrate how laughable it is to accuse them of discrimination.
A local Imam told the news that the employees were caught in an impossible situation. “If someone tells you, ‘You pray on your break,’ and the break time is not the prayer time? It will be impossible to pray,’ he said.”
“Hopefully someone will talk some sense into these disgruntled Muslims because this is the last thing their religion’s reputation needs right now.” http://totalconservative.com/muslims-walk-off-the-job-citing-discrimination/
