via Conservative Tribune: Though he professes to be a Christian, President Barack Obama has shown through both word and deed that he actually tends to side with the Islamic faith, not Christianity.
This has been proven once again, now that a federal court has ruled in favor of two Muslim truck drivers in a dispute with the business they worked for.
The two Somali refugees were awarded $240,000 in damages after they sued their former employer who had fired them for refusing to deliver beer and alcohol, even though they knew they would be required to do so when they were hired.
Their case was taken up by Obama’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission lawyers, who successfully argued that the employer had discriminated against the men and violated their freedom of religious expression.
The action by the Obama administration had both Fox News host Megyn Kelly and senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano perplexed, as the administration has not acted similarly toward Christians involved in religious liberty disputes.
“The Obama administration actually represented the two Muslims in this case,” Kelly stated. “But has sometimes taken a very different position in the case of Christians trying to assert their religious beliefs.”
Kelly then proceeded to read the statement released by the EEOC in the wake of their victory, which read:
“We are proud to support the rights of workers to equal treatment in the workplace without having to sacrifice their religious beliefs or practices; it’s fundamental to the American principles of religious freedom and tolerance.”
Kelly ruefully added, “But when it comes to the Christian bakers, it’s not as fundamental.”
Judge Napolitano agreed: “That’s correct. It’s unfortunate when the government interferes in a private dispute over religious views, and takes sides, and chooses one religion over another.”
“The way the feds intervened … they wanted this case because they wanted to make the point that they’ve now made,: he added.
This is just another glaring example of hypocrisy on the part of the Obama administration, which would champion religious liberty and the right of accommodation for Muslim employees, but not so much for Christians attempting to assert those same rights.
