So, just so we’re clear:
Christians declining to cater gay weddings — intolerable bigotry.
Mohammedans refusing to deliver beer — State-Protected Religious Freedom.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission won $240,000 in damages for two Muslim truck drivers after it sued their former employer for religious discrimination for firing the drivers for refusing to make beer deliveries.
The EEOC said that Star Transport Inc., a trucking company based in Morton, Ill., violated their religious rights by refusing to accommodate their objections to delivering alcoholic beverages.
“EEOC is proud to support the rights of workers to equal treatment in the workplace without having to sacrifice their religious beliefs or practices,” EEOC General Counsel David Lopez announced Thursday.
One can already hear the whining progressive rationalization, “Oh, but the trucking company could have reassigned them.” Yeah, and the gay couples could have found another caterer, too.
