    So can a Muslim have in their workplace area something that says “Death to America” Allah Akbar!

  2. Tom O

    That’s for their employer to decide.

    Well knowing our Muslim infused government, they probably would not mind. Everyone knows that members of the Muslim Brotherhood are in high positions throughout our government all placed there by Obama, and they say he is not Muslim, what a laugh that is!!

    “Everyone knows that members of the Muslim Brotherhood are in high positions throughout our government.” I’m not everyone, so tell me who these people are, and how you know they’re members of the Muslim Brotherhood.
    “all placed there by Obama, and they say he is not Muslim.” Back in 2008 Obama’s enemies were attacking him for allegedly following the Black Liberation Theology of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago which Obama had attended regularly for years. When and how did Obama become a Muslim?

    Rev Bob, where is your proof? Secondly, many high ranking jobs are political appointment jobs, so that happens all the time when people are appointed to such positions. BTW, Bush, Jr., administration was hiring right wing conservatives law graduates into permanent civil service positions because they felt that there weren’t enough right wing conservatives in the Justice Department and they did it in full violations of the civil service rules and regulations.

    Rev Bob’s ridiculous Muslim Brotherhood claims probably are based on this:

    I can ascertain from this article that Chris Rodda does not fully understand the law and specifics of this case.

    And everyone knows that you Rev Bob don’t fully understands the Bible let alone understand its contents despite your extensive religious education.

    Chris Rodda’s article omits some significant facts. First, Sterling made no attempt to invoke the protections of the RFRA when she was told to remove the signs, and didn’t
    claim infringement of her religious rights until she was charged with insubordination for refusing to remove the signs.
    More significantly, the signs were not a “bible verse.” As you can see at
    https://www.facebook.com/FranklinGraham/posts/929586657097516
    Franklin Graham wrote “’No weapon formed against you shall prosper.’ This is the Bible verse (Isaiah 54:17) that Marine Lance Corporal Monifa Sterling was court martialed over.” Just below that is a picture of Sterling holding one of her signs, which says “No weapons formed against me shall prosper,” which does not appear in ANY known version of the Bible. Her re-wording is a strong indication that the 3 identical signs were primarily an expression of defiance, not religious faith.
