(CNN)A Muslim flight attendant says she was suspended by ExpressJet for refusing to serve alcohol in accordance with her Islamic faith.
In a bid to get her job back, Charee Stanley filed a discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on Tuesday for the revocation of a reasonable religious accommodation.

She wants to do her job without serving alcohol in accordance with her Islamic faith -- just as she was doing before her suspension, her lawyer said.
"What this case comes down to is no one should have to choose between their career and religion and it's incumbent upon employers to provide a safe environment where employees can feel they can practice their religion freely," said Lena Masri, an attorney with Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

welcome to the age of entitlement.
Kinda like that story with the woman that doesn't want to marry gay people, already forgot her name.
I would not be surprised if she gets a pass.
I feel like i should subscribe to some religion that requires me to take 1 hour coffee breaks at work at least 3 times a day...
it's incumbent upon employers to provide a safe environment where employees can feel they can practice their religion freely,
(Q.18) Is it permissible for a Muslim to work in places where alcoholic drinks are sold or at entertainment places, without being involved in serving alcoholic drinks or other sinful acts, such as washing dishes and preparing tables, etc.?
It is not permissible in the places where alcoholic drink is sold. Work in entertainment places is not recommended on the premise of ihtiyat luzumi (obligatory precaution)..

Where's the outrage over this? People are so angry about Kim Davis being jailed and denied religious freedom but not this.
Oh I forgot the reason. Dummy me.
