FINALLY! A COMMON SENSE DECISION!
We heard about this case and couldn’t believe this woman was asking to change a military uniform. We should have known better…American society is being bombarded with Muslim propaganda and if you don’t like it you’re in big trouble with CAIR. CAIR has been bullying anyone who doesn’t accept Islam’s wishes and their desire to change American culture. It’s always the threat of a lawsuit so here you have this young woman and her parents who don’t like the decision so they’re taking legal action against The Citadel. Unreal!
A Muslim woman who had been accepted at The Citadel and her family are considering taking legal action after the military college Tuesday denied her request to wear a hijab, said Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for Council on American-Islamic Relations.
The woman, who does not want to speak to the media now, cannot attend the school without religious accommodation, Hooper said.“They obviously are heartbroken,” he said of the family. “It’s very disturbing.”
Lt. Gen. John Rosa, the school’s president, said in a statement that the school “has relied upon a highly effective educational model requiring all cadets to adopt a common uniform.”
He also said that “uniformity is the cornerstone of this four-year leader development model. The standardization of cadets in apparel, overall appearance, actions and privileges is essential to the learning goals and objectives of the college.”
Lt. Col. Brett Ashworth, vice president of communications and marketing for The Citadel, said the cadet was informed of the decision Tuesday morning.
Hooper said his group, which is based in Washington, D.C., is working with the family now to determine what kind of legal action to take.
“It’s an important civil rights matter,” he said. “This is not the end of the issue.”
The woman’s request set off a social media firestorm last month when news broke that The Citadel was considering an exception to its famously strict dress code.
