Why are abdicating reason for the faith that advocates the death of all non-believers? If the guy wants his beard fine – get another job. Don’t make the rules fit the religion. We are our own worst enemies letting this religion dictate our standards. It is not a religion, it is a HATE group.

The last thing the Philadelphia School District can afford is a lawsuit. The school district has over a 300 million dollar deficit as it is.

PCL 1 is absolutely correct. Today Sharia law takes precedence over the dressing code and commonsensical requirements for tidiness, tomorrow polygamy and underage forced marriages will become commonplace thanks to the activists judges.

Like conscientious objection to the draft, it is possible to revise the rules to include exceptions in bona fide religious cases.

@AZ1811 How silly. He has worked there for 27 years without his beard interfering with his work ability. Why SHOULDN’T he complain when an obviously discriminatory law is placed? Hate America all you want for its foreign policies, but the liberty and religious freedom provided here as per law is amazing. He has every right to have a conducive work environment, as would anyone else. Live and let live.

the people of Islam are calling Americans anti Muslims for reporting facts, go figure. I am amazed that these fine Muslims and CAIR are worried about Muslims arrested in the United States in making sue that they are eating Islamic approved foods while in prison. All in the name of their religion. But this was not an issues when the Vietnamese came to this country 20 something years ago. The Vietnamese saw a chance to work and build a life in this country and they worked for it unlike the Muslims who are migrating here and living off our government while to have the money to build mosque and sue anyone who does not agree with their thinking.
