• Double Standard: Muslim Woman REFUSES To Do Her Job, ISN’T Jailed

    A Muslim flight attendant says she was suspended by ExpressJet for refusing to serve alcohol to passengers in accordance with her Islamic faith.

    The flight attendant, Charee Stanley’s put some strain on the other stewardess because they had to serve all the alcohol and she was subsequently suspended.

    Rather than tossing her into prison, like they did to Kim Davis, she is to suing the airline

    Stanley filed a discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on Tuesday for the revocation of a “reasonable religious accommodation.”

    She wants to do her job without serving alcohol in accordance with her Islamic faith — just as she was doing before her suspension, her lawyer said.

    “What this case comes down to is no one should have to choose between their career and religion and it’s incumbent upon employers to provide a safe environment where employees can feel they can practice their religion freely,” said Lena Masri, an attorney with Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

    Stanley, 40, started working for ExpressJet nearly three years ago. About two years ago she converted to Islam. This year she learned her faith prohibits her from not only consuming alcohol but serving it, too, Masri said.
