what has this world come to?

The Associated Press

ATLANTA —
A Muslim woman is claiming in a federal lawsuit that she was dismissed from the Atlanta Police Department's civilian honor guard because she refused to remove her traditional headscarf.



Helen Lane says in a federal lawsuit filed this week that the head of the voluntary guard laughed at her when she told him she would wear her hijab at a September 2006 funeral. She said she felt "humiliated, hurt and was traumatized" by the laughter.


Lane, who is seeking $250,000 in damages, said she was told by another Atlanta official that "the hijab was like a swastika."


Really? when did we (as Americans) have to give into this? If i remember this is America not some other country. We should stand up and not let this happen. what do they do to US over there when we show our a$$ and try to make a stand????

What's sad is the headscarf thing is all about control of women.

I may be out on a limb on this, but it's part of the Muslim way of weaking our government and laws to let them do whatever they want. Then when they attack, it's too late.

They are protected by the Constitution of the United States 1st Ammendment. Freedom of speech and religious Beliefs. Being the hijab is part of the muslim religion for women. They are protected and have the right to wear it.

Trust me I deal with this stuff at work daily.

Hmmm it's her constitutional right to wear the hijab? But she is a government official and I feel that the whole seperation of church and state thing is being violated (doesn't matter that it isn't in the Constitution) because by her wearing the hijab is our government endorsing islam and I am offended by this. In fact I am going to sue because my feeling are hurt.

Oops....she might not win after all:
Uniforms, Clothing and Equipment

Third Circuit upholds the Philadelphia Police Dept. ban on scarves and other religious headgear. Prohibiting all religious symbols and attire, helps prevent any divisiveness when officers encounter a diverse population. Webb v. City of Philadelphia, #07-3081, 2009 U.S. App. Lexis 7169, 105 FEP Cases (BNA) 1665 (3rd Cir.).

But wait, now I am unsure again

Federal court holds that a county violated an employee's rights by firing her for repeatedly wearing a cross pendant. Daniels v. City of Arlington, #00-11191, 246 F.3d 500 (5th Cir.) not followed. Draper v. Logan County Library, #1:02CV-13 (W.D.Ky. 2003). [2003 FP Nov]
In a companion decision to Endres v. Indiana State Police, (See Religious Discrimination), a three-judge panel upheld a disparate treatment complaint filed by an Islamic female public employee who was told she could not wear a geles (headwrap) at work. Holmes v. Marion County, #02-1377, 2003 U.S. App. Lexis 13027 (7th Cir. 2003). {N/R}

Hold on, hold on, she should lose:
Justices refuse to set aside the termination of a police officer who insisted on wearing a cross on his uniform. Daniels v. City of Arlington, #01-187, 2001 U.S. Lexis 9494 (Oct. 9, 2001) affirming 246 F.3d 500, 2001 U.S. App. Lexis 6018 (5th Cir.). [2001 FP 173]

Tink, tink, tink,.................that's the sound of the foundation of our country being chisled away, by one unhappy group after another.

i didnt see that she was a gov't official ... if that is the case you are correct most places do have uniform policies so she would be in violation by wearing her hijab ... but if she was just a citizen then she does have some justification ... not $250000 worth imo but thatll be left up to the judge
