Cherson & Molschky: Police Officer Punished for Refusing to Attend Mandatory Islamic Event

The US Supreme Court decided not to review the case of an Oklahoma police officer, who sued the city of Tulsa based on his religious convictions after being punished for refusing to attend a mandatory event in a mosque.

The Islamic Society in Tulsa held a law enforcement appreciation day, and police officer Paul Campbell Fields would not attend and would not force others to attend an event he believed should have been voluntary…

    They fired him for failing to bow to Islam; the Supreme court should have heard that one it’s a clear separation of church and state.

      Because he didn’t bow to his boss. That was an order, not a suggestion.

      • Alain

        Same thing in this case: boss bows to Islam and demands all employees do the same.

    Well then, run for political office and then fire those who punish him today.

    Diplomacy is a necessary evil.
