This story just goes to show you that people from all walks of life are out trying to make a quick buck, even if they have to sue someone.

My girlfriend works with her. My GF told me a lot of the employees are mad at her (Muslim girl) because she has been an employee of Disneyland for 2.5 years and has had no problem, no complaints with the dress code; but all of a sudden she has an issue with it now.
Hmm interesting isn't it?

You don't have a right to enjoy Disney land. You going to have to deal with seeing different people around this country. But I am sure you'll survive the same way racists survived black people using the same water fountains.

She does have a right to her religious ideology and what that means will be decided in court.

I take it, that the vast majority of Americans who don't want an Islamic version of Walt Disney, by the same token, are allowed to resist the change.

Yes of course!

More demonising of Muslims by the press, honestly people you're so easily led to hate. There really is no hope you realise until you unite.

I am so glad to hear there are non-Muslims who are still willing to come to the defense of Muslims and their rights. There are almost 1.5 billion Muslims on this planet, and they should have the right to move where they'd like and have the freedom to practice their religion wherever they decide to move to, without people who don't understand their beliefs trying to dictate what they can and can't do. Call it whatever you want, but it's becoming ok in this country to discriminate against Muslims, a culture and religion we really understand so little of.
We all got here the same way. Ancestors arrived at the border and built lives for themselves and their families. People should still have that right. We may have been born here, but we don't own this country.
Surely Disney knew this woman was Muslim prior to hiring her, and she very likely wore her hijab to her interview.
It sounds like a matter of how PC it was to wear it after the fact. It doesn't sound like it fit in with the image Disney wanted to portray (sterile and non controversial).
When are we going to get over the fact that there are all colors, races, creeds, ideologies, getting more diverse all the time.
THANK GOD for that, because it's one of the strengths of this country!

and from what I have been reading on the net, there are also many muslims that moved to the west to get away from Islamic ideology and they do not like the fact it is now following them here.

People, this is not the first and it will not be last time the religion/cult of peace will challenge the infidel. They puch and probe you untill you either cave-in or puch back. This is there method of operation, so get use to it. Take a look at the UK to see what this leads too.

Seriously? She as a Muslim employee has all the rights and I, as a customer, have none?

If you really think I am a racist, I suggest you contact a moderator and the police. Racism is a serious offence. I urge you to act quickly!

On the other hand, you appear to be so zealous in your pursuit of Muslim rights, that you appear to be eager to ride rough-shod over everyone elses' rights.

And I have the right to enjoy a traditional all American Walt Disney experience.

You would do well to remember that not only Muslims have rights.

It's not about defending her rights to practice her religion freely. She signed a contract that included a dress code. If she had a problem with the dress code she shouldn't have signed anything. For some reason this case is very black and white for me.

What a shame that Muslims don't allow Non-Muslims the same right to practice their religion in Muslim dominated countries.

Its almost as if all of this tolerance was, somehow, one sided.

I would agree that lately everything has been incredibly manipulative.

This is not a religion issue. It's an issue involving one person who - as the OP suggested - does have the choice to not work there if it does not suit her.

Remember the guy who wanted to work at Hooter's and sued them...that's kind of the same thing.

Any resulting spin from this will be just that, manipulative, brainwashing spin.

If she wins this case, can I go to work and:

(1) Say, "Merry Christmas!" during religious holidays?
(2) Wear a Catholic cross around my neck without tucking it in?
(3) Wear a shirt that says, "Jesus Loves You!"
(4) Say a prayer before an executive meeting?
(5) Wear a Christmas hat while conversing with clients?
(6) Display a crucifix and the ten commandments at my desk?
(7) Display a manger scene in the workplace window?
(8) Display religious cards?
(9) Hand out 'the body of Christ' to everyone at work?
(10) Use the company intercom system, and hold service around lunch time?
(11) Hand out religious propaganda to a Mormon sitting a few desks over?
(12) Hand out pro-life propaganda to someone expecting?
(13) Recite the ten commandments every Friday?
(14) Handout a "King James Bible" to an atheists working the front desk?
(15) Heck, handout a "King James Bible" to all the atheist working the entire company?
(16) Create a Christmas and Easter shrine in the front lobby?
(17) Preach to the owner of the company when he does something immoral?

Will I be able to do all of that at work without being fired?

Amen

I never said you don't have any rights as a consumer. I said you do not have a right to enjoy Disney Land. Feel free to show me where in the Bill of Rights that's listed.

You do have a right though to dislike Islam and Muslims for what ever reason so no I won't be attempting to curtail any of your liberties.

And yes, not wanting to see a hijab at Disney Land because it is unAmerican is akin to the same attitudes towards black people still held by people around this country.

GASP! People outside of America are different!!!! Really, it'll be ok. The Irish didn't destroy us. The Polish didn't destroy us. The Chinese didn't do it. Christian fundamentalism hasn't done it. We'll make it.

Can you point out in the Bill of Rights where a religious right supersedes a secular right?

As I told you before, if you think I am a racist, contact an administrator and the police. Racism is a serious criminal offence.

Otherwise, stop blowing smoke out of your a$$.

No I can't. Can you show me where you have a right to enjoy Disney Land free of head scarves?

It is not a crime to be racist and you have a constitutional right to be as xenophobic as you want, so again, I won't be alerting anyone.

If this individual is able to win this case, I want to express my religious freedom without prosecution. I also want people to be brought up on hate crimes for bashing my religious affiliations, their philosophies, their rules, and other practices. I want it all. If there is a television show that bashes Christianity, I want the producers to be thrown in jail, the station shutdown, and extensive fines to be handed out.

What is good for one religion is good for another.

(See my original post for a list of religious demands.)

You appear to be under the misapprehension that only Muslims have rights in the USA.

The Bill of Rights guarantees religious expression, but not at the expense of secular rights. Don't you understand that?

No it is a crime actually. For a man who appears to consider himself well versed in constitutional law, you are sadly misinformed about criminal law.

If I am a racist, as you have asserted, it is your civic duty to alert both a moderator and the police.

Act quickly man!

The rights of Muslim apologists to stifle debate, by branding anyone who disagrees with them a racist, is at stake!
