Muslim Organization Welcomes End Of Ban On Hijab

April 7, 2010 by  

Muslim organization welcomes end of ban on hijabThe Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has praised the signing into law of legislation that will end Oregon’s ban on teachers wearing Islamic head scarves or the religious attire of other faiths.

The lifting of the 87-year-long ban will go into effect after the 2010-11 school year and follows a February vote of 51-8 in the Oregon House of Representatives. To become law, the bill had to be signed by Governor Ted Kulongoski.

"This change in the law protects the rights of educators of all faiths," said CAIR national communications director Ibrahim Hooper.

He added that his organization has consistently defended the right of Americans of all faiths to wear religious attire in the workplace, in schools, in courtrooms and as customers in public venues such as banks.

Currently only Nebraska and Pennsylvania prohibit their teachers from wearing religious clothing at work, and CAIR has called on their legislators to "follow Oregon’s example of respect for religious freedom and diversity."

In addition to the Muslim organization, a number of interfaith groups, civil rights groups and bar association organizations, including The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, have joined in the appeal.ADNFCR-1961-ID-19703989-ADNFCR

    Just another step in Islam’s plans to further Islam in America. They are making great strides in Europe. Rather than continue with the political correctness, Islam is a cancer which should be cut out now instead of letting it grow and kill us and our country.

    • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Paul

      Jack,

      Myself and many others I know are in total agreement with your statements.

      The politically correct approach, and giving protective status to one group is clearly wrong.

    • Doc Sarvis

      Myself and many others I know are in total Dissagreement with your statements. It is a freaking scarf!

      Islam is no more a threat to America and Democracy than Christianity is. It is the extremist fring who claim/misuse religion who terrorize us.

      • Palin12

        Hey Quack, how many Christian suicide bombers do you know? How many Christians took part in destroying the World Trade Center and with it 3,000 innocent lives? How many Christians tried to blow up a plane in Detroit on Christmas Day? How many Christians murdered our brave men and women at Ft. Hood while shouting “Allahu Akbar”? I’m glad that SOB murderer is paralyzed from the waist down, he won’t have much fun with his 72 virgins!

        • Doc Sarvis

          Read my last sentence. It is the extremists who subvert religion and use it to (try to)justify terrorism. Every religion has its extremists.

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Doc,
            since you support this RELIGEOUS clothing in a federally funded school then I suppose you will also support a teacher wearing a large cross around their neck fully exposed or a rosary? Or perhaps a bible laying on their desk as long as they do not preach from it??? It is exactly the same!!!

          • Doc Sarvis

            I don’t have a problem with a teacher or student wearing a cross around their neck or a rosary even though, at least for the cross (I don’t know about the rosary) it is not a part of the religion to wear it (it is a display) like the scarf is in Islam. I do think the Bible on the desk is going too far.

          • libertytrain

            Doc- One could think of the Bible as a history reference book – One could think of the Rosary as a piece of Jewelry -

          • Doc Sarvis

            I could see the rosary argument – not the Bible.

          • libertytrain

            Well, one could argue that if the ancient Greek and/or Roman mythology books are allowed in schools, then too, the Bible should be as well.

          • Doc Sarvis

            So which way do you want it; the Bible is mythology or history?

          • libertytrain

            As I was taught Mythology when I was in Catholic school, it was a history book of the religion of the people of that time and place. So it (the Bible) could be considered a history of a type of mythology by those who deem to remove it from the schools rather than religious, if it’s religious, would not mythology have to be removed as well – since it was the religion of the Greeks or Romans?

          • libertytrain

            Imagine, the religion of other people being taught in a Christ-believing school – so glad my school had no problem teaching us about other people’s religion. Historically speaking, of course.

        • Enlightened one

          Palin…. Have you ever heard of the ” crusades”… Read about it sometime… Then read about how many times so called Christian nations have invaded Arab nations…. You look at Islam with ignorant blinders on…. Their are more than a billion and a half Muslims…. The vast majority are very peaceful… Far more peaceful than most Christians .. I’ve never seen more hate filled people than the ones who claim to be Christians … If a billion and a half Muslims wanted you dead then you would already be dead…. Their isn’t an Arab country anywhere that hasn’t has Christians kill it’s people and steal their resources… As far as Muslims converting you to Islam , you Christians have been going to the mid east , Africa and every country on the planet trying to force Christianity on other humanbeings … Look up missionarys… Christian soldiers …so stop with the Muslim hate … Your ignorance is showing … It was ingrained in your mind watching movies as a child that Arabs , blacks, Indians , Asians were all inferior to the White explorer , hunter, invaders…how many times have you seen films where the arabs , blacks and people in the own lands were only concidered good enough to carry supplys for the invaders from the west ….so don’t come off like Christians have done their share of murdering and killing innocent humanbeings….

      • baf

        What happened to the separation of church and State? Since when did religious garbs control what happens in state run schools? I agree with Palin12. Muslims want us all to believe that they are a peaceful religion. That’s a joke and that is how they are getting their agendas past. America…. don’t fall for it!

        • ranger

          Baf, I hope you realize that there are no provisions in the Constitution for ‘separation of church and state’. This is a widely held myth that does our country no good. The only mention of ‘separation of church and state’ was in some obscure letters one of our founders wrote to friend at that time. The Muslims will overthrow our form of Government simply because their birth rates per family are in the 7 to 8 children per family. Ours is 2.11, so you will see the 9 million Muslims here multiply to 63 million, then to 450 million rather quickly…sheer numbers will vote us out and into a Muslim controlled nation, like Spain, France, England and so on. Beware of more legal and illegal immigration to our country.

      • Jim H.

        Hi Doc, Ironic as it sounds, the law put into place over 80 years ago was to keep Catholic nuns from teaching in public schools. Had to keep those Christian radicals out.

      • DamnYankee

        I disagree. If we must abide by “the separation of church and state”, why does that not apply to all religions, but only to the tenets of Christianity? It seems to me, we are prefering one over the other.

      • Annaxor

        Amazing, Hang Muslims? Is that anything like BEHEADING? STONING? TORTURE? PRISON? FOR BEING A CHRISTIAN? THAT’S THE BIG DIFFERENCE BUB! Since your so religions, what about all the Christians who are either dying or converting just to get food over in Pakistan’s flood area? YES, they are refusing supplies and food to Christians over there, so it is convert or die….is that the religion you speak of?

  • s c

    At Haavid, religious freedom and diversity mean the diametric opposite of what is being said. This method gives protected status to those who do not deserve it. This is an old ACLU trick, where methods are presented as a solution, yet what happens nets the opposite.
    For those who still live in a cave of their own making, this is inherently anti-free speech. It is unconstitutional, and the fact that you don’t understand it proves that you love yourself more than the rest of us. As for the Constitution, the rest of us know how you really feel about it. It’s just that you can’t be honest. That makes you nothing less than home-grown, domestic enemies, and you ARE seen for who and what you really are.

  • http://gmail i41

    Another example of socialist dems stupidity, teachers cann’t wear a cross. but the third rate mslim women can wear a covering. Thanks you sorry liberal communist democrats and ACLU retards.

    • Richard Pawley

      Every Christian teacher who lives in Oregon and believes in Jesus should wear a cross to school and every Jew who follows Moses and the prophets should wear a Star of David, and when the traitorous ACLU goes bananas over this(they even tried to get a teacher fired in Florida because she said grace before meals) this should be taken to the highest courts. Wonderful organizations like the American Center for Law and Justice will fight for such teachers. They have even won cases against the ACLU at the Supreme Court. Now it the time for all good men (and women) of God to stand together to oppose the forces of Darkness. If we don’t hang together, we will surely hang separately. If Muslims who worship the god of the ancient Arabs can wear their identification to school then so can Christians and Jews who worship the God of all creation. This may not be politically correct but it is just and truly the American way!

    • baf

      Amen, Amen, Amen

    • Claire

      This was passed by the state of Oregon. According to the article above, there are only 2 states left that have not lifted the ban.

  • http://att.net Deborah

    We Christians need to start standing up to this. We can’t celebrate our Christian faith and customs in public; but, Muslims can. This political correctness has gone to far. The Constitution says, the Government shall make no law restricting religious belief.

    • JeffH

      Simply called hypocrisy.

    • Richard Pawley

      Deborah, you know that and I know that but the 111th Congress doesn’t care a wit about the Constitution. Their major interest is in power and control and lording it over their constituents. Like Barons of old they pass laws that they are not bound by, laws for the peasants like us. They tell us how much they care, while supporting all sorts of things to make us more dependent on them and government in general.
      We may have one last chance to get rid of them in the November election but they are hoping we will forget by then. Wait till you see the new taxes that the Democrats and Republican Progressives have planned for ALL Americans. The major media has been bought and sold by them and that is why FOX NEWS is number one in the United States today, because good or bad, people want the truth. Thank God that the FCC refused to give them the control of the Internet they sought or freedom as we know it would have died for real. Even some liberals watch FOX NEWS because they want to know what is really going on and they know that ABC, CBS or NBC and their affiliates on cable are just repeating the party line. What a fascinating time we live in and it is going to get a whole lot more fascinating. We will see history in the making and some of it might even be good! May God bless the citizens of the United States because no one else is going to do so!

  • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Paul

    Deborah,

    I agree with your statements, but, as we know; the corrupt politicians, headed up by none other than the current POTUS do not follow their oath’s of office, nor, give credence to The U.S. Constitution.

    Thankfully, it appears the silent majority is finally awakening to what has been done to them, and what is being done at a rapid pace.

    Another Christian.

  • Joel Johnston

    Consider all the men and women who served America in battle and left the ultimate sacrifice on the altar of freedom. The free ground they EARNED for all of us provides for many different freedoms available to all LEGAL citizens. Our enemies in the past were bold and easily identifiable; marching in uniforms to support tyranny and openly opposing democracy and freedom. Our attentions are drawn to new enemies who wage war with insane suicide attacks according to the teachings of their holy book. More frightening is the viral sort of enemy that works on our hard-won free ground. One that creeps, infects, gains foothold in the dark corners, and learns to appear as a champion for freedom while tightening the noose of oppression from within. Our “free-market” country permits all expression including those contradictory to democracy. The question is, “do you believe that the freedoms earned by your forbears are worth standing up for?” I believe the majority of US citizens do but I do not think we can wait for a new Paul Revere. These words are just one man’s opinion. Another man’s opinion…”A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.” – Thomas Jefferson

  • lili

    I am not of the far left or far right but believe that extremes in anything are not a good thing, and is dangerous. With that said, Religion of ANY kind should not play a part in a public school system or any public held appointment. I’d like to know where you live Deborah, because where I live Christianity and Judaism are shoved down our throats in the public school system and in town government. I was raised druid which is a pagan faith, and I get death threats from the “good” christians around here, and if there were muslims they would be after me as well I am sure. I’m not bashing Christians or anyone for that matter, I’m simply stating a fact. The point I am trying to make is this. Religious songs, religious comments, religious jewellery, and or religious clothing have NO PLACE in public schools. If that is the way you want your children raised send them to private school or home school them. One further note. Having lived in the middle east for a year on business, I can assure you Islam is not a peaceful religion.

    • Richard Pawley

      Well. Lili, the ACLU would agree with you on teaching anything about the beliefs of the founding fathers (Judaism and Christianity) but Webster, the founder of public schools in the USA said that
      “Education without the Bible is useless.” However, only the truths of Judeo-Christianity can withstand the militancy of Islam and show it up for what it is. Nature, however, abhors a vacuum and consequently your position actually supports the Islamic Revolution. Their book says that all who don’t follow their way (of death) deserve death. I would think you might agree that if Muslims can wear religous symbols at school than others should have the same right. Paganism is surely ancient but it is no match for any of the above mentioned beliefs. I would like to apologize to you for any of the so-called Christians who are sending you death threats. That is not the Christian way. I trust, of course, that you are not trying to make converts or offering sex like the cult in the 1970′s that used it as a recruiting tool. If you practice your beliefs in private, radical as they are in the 21st Century, there should be no reason for anyone to mistreat you. One of the nicest people I ever worked with was a child of a Muslim and had adopted Druid beliefs. I am a follower of Jesus and He rejected no one who came to him. Somewhere in the Old Testament God said (through one of his prophets) “Come let us reason together.” The point I would like to make to you is that the God of the Bible has a lot to offer, even if some who follow Him are not up to his standards. Don’t look at those people as what God is like, look to Jesus, read the gospels if you are ever interested. You might be shocked to discover what he actually said. If you are a caring person you would like him!

  • Claire

    Anyone with half a brain should know Islam is not a peaceful religion. Now they are after the prisoners in a vast majority of our U.S. prisons and teaching them their religion. This is nothing but another step, one step at a time until they achieve their goal and we all know what that is. Our government,and our school system administrators are kowtowing to their wants.
    I opted to send my kids to Lutheran Schools and I have no regrets.

    • Fred

      Richard,
      It is refreshing to see that there are still people who are holding to their belief in these troublesome times.I immigrated from a Moslem country and I know what is happening in this country these days is wrong. The ACLU and this corrupt administration and their running dogs in congress are ruining the hope of the world in this erstwhile “beacon on the hill”. Keep up the good work.

    • Enlightened one

      Claire… Total nonsense… Christians are far more violent than Muslims…read about the crusades… If 1&1/2 Muslims wanted you dead you would already be there….. Your mistaking terrorist with Islam…. The % of Muslims that are violent abd terrorist is so small compared to the actual number of Muslims …. Theirs diffrent versions of the Koran , same with your bible… You can show two people the same bible verse and get two diffrent meanings… Over the centurys Christians have killed millions of Muslims … Christians just won’t admitt how violent they are …You should rethink what you believe about Muslims and Christians .. And stop equating all Islam with terrorist….their were more Muslins that condemed 9/11 than cheered…. Iranians took to the streets to protest 9/11 and some of Amerixas most loyal allies are Muslim…the ignorance about Islam in this country is amazing… It’s so called Christians on this Internet site talking about overthrowing this legally elected goverment we have… It’s Christians promoting the use of guns at these tea bagger rallys…i’m not saying sone Muslims aren’t violent , we know that.. Their terrorist… But the most violent is without a doubt Christians… You can search all i’ve posted…start wth the crusades and invasions of Arab countrys…

      • Claire

        Enlightened One– I cannot worry about the past and what happened centuries ago. I am concerned for the “here and now” aspect of life. As far as Christians, I know a number of people that go to church every Sunday and raise hell during the week. To me, this is not the true Christian way. Practice what you preach applies to this scenario. And yes, people can decipher different meanings from the same biblical verse. Many people take a different stance and form their own opinions. This is human nature. I simply do not trust the Islams/Muslims and nothing will make me change my mind. If I believe there are certain factions that mean ill to America, then I have no use for them. Nonsense?? To me, it is not nonsense. I believe what I believe and you do not have to like it. I am as hardheaded as you.

        • Palin12

          Claire, can you even imagine this guy talking about the Crusades, which took place between 1095 and 1291? Before Columbus even discovered North America! What does that have to do with modern day Islamo-Fascism?

          • Claire

            Palin 12 — I have said before that the world of today cannot be compared to the world of 100 years ago or later. Times are different, issues are different and we certainly have more of them to contend with. As I said, I certainly am more worried about the here and now. I know all about the crusades, etc. But that was then and this is now. We can’t look back. We can’t cry over spilt milk, all we can do is forge ahead and make the best decisions we can about the world we live in.

            Palin 12 — Sorry, I forgot to answer your question. I got on a “roll.” Geez, the Crusades? I thought what the?????

  • http://gmail i41

    As for the cess pool in prisons with the muslims getting converts from jailed blacks, there is a way to stop this garbage. County’s, State’s and Federal highways need crushed rock. Put them all to work swinging picks and hammers, making little ones out of big boulders. It would keep them occupied and doing something to pay back society, for causing problems and murdering and stealing. Less buggering, more sleeping ,when the light go out, and help stop repeat offenders wanting to get back in. Also make them produce their own food and they will have less time causing trouble.

    • Claire

      i41– And I agree with you. Prisons should never be a “good life” for the criminals. Government has made it too easy for the criminals in prison. And taxpayers are footing the bill. Prisons should be hard-nose enough so that there would be no repeat offenders.

  • Volker

    Folks,

    The ACLU **OPPOSED** repealing the religious garb ban, because they are worried that Evangelical teachers will wear t-shirts with expressions of faith. The dumb rule that Oregon finally repealed repressed everyone’s religious expression, and originally targeted Catholic nuns.

  • Bienvenido Pia

    No problem, because we have “Freedom of Religion”.

    The question is: How about the murder of the Islam religion who killed 13 soldiers in Fort Hood Military Camp? Barack Hussein Osama: No comment?

    How about this religious practice? -

    Subject: Just a wake up call.

    Muslim Belief
    - This is a true story and the author, Rick Mathes, is a well-known leader in prison ministry.
    - The man who walks with God always gets to his destination. If you have a pulse you have a purpose.
    - The Muslim religion is the fastest growing religion per capita in the United States , especially in the minority races!!
    - Last month I attended my annual training lession that’s required for maintaining my state prison security
    clearance. During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths, who explained each of their beliefs I was particularly interested in what the Islamic had to say.
    - The Muslim gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video. After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers. When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Muslim and
    asked: ‘Please, correct me if I’m wrong, but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, (which is a command to all Muslims) they are assured of a place in heaven. If that’s the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?’
    - There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation, he replied, ‘Non-believers!’
    - I responded, So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can have a place in heaven Is that correct?’
    - The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.’
    - He sheepishly replied, ‘Yes’ I then stated, ‘Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine Pope John Paul commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or Dr. Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to guarantee them a place in heaven!’
    - The Muslim was speechless! I continued, ‘I also have a problem with being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me! Let me ask you a question: Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me?’
    -
    You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame. Needless to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the Diversification’ training seminar were not happy with my way of dealing with the Islamic Imam, and exposing the truth about the Muslims’ beliefs.

    - In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to elect the President!
    - I think everyone in the U..S. should berequired to read this, but with the ACLU, there is no way this will be
    widely publicized, unless each of us send it on! This is your chance tomake a difference…

        “Enlightened One” I, like many Americans do not believe your islamic propaganda of peace. Islam is based largely on the word of Muhammed who was a militant crusader seeking to overtake many countries. The Christians crusades were in response to the infiltration of Muslim armies into Christian lands. Many lives were lost that believed different religions but let us take a look at present day.

        Show me where Christians openly believe in anything resembling Jihad against any follower of another religion? Provide an answer to the story posted above. If I am Christian am I an infidel in the eyes of Islam? If I am an infidel is it the duty of practicing Muslims to kill me? Answer plain and simple and don’t dance around like the insane, coward, extremist suicide bombers for Islam.

        • JeffH

          Don’t hold your breath waiting for a response. If there is a response at all, it will be one that either takes your words out of context or has nothing to do with your questions.

          • Joel Johnston

            Jeff you are right. I have seen this everywhere. Muslims come out to discussion groups to blast white republicans, support the wobbling liberals and liberal democrats, and cry victim for Islam. I have yet to have any Muslim engage me on this issue with anything more than question dodging or vague, inaccurate, and usually unconnected historical references. Note that “enlightened” did not respond with his belief references in Islamic teachings? He directed the audience to Snopes and the internet for intelligence.

            This is a discussion group so post your own opinions and/or beliefs, but if you stand to cast stones in America be prepared to get hit back. We don’t all cower under political correctness, religious oppression, and encroachment on the freedoms earned by our fathers.

  • American Liberal

    My opinion is that religions the worlds # 1 problem… Islam, Christianity and the Jewish religion are the root of most the wars and problems….if you want to go to church , fine with me… If you want to send your kids to a religious school that’s fine too.. Or if you want to home school and teach them your religion , I’m ok with that…. But I don’t want your religions in public schools or in goverment….. My comment would be ” which religion ” would you approve of … And I’m sure the answer would be your own religion…too any diffrent religions to even concider teaching it in schools….like someone else said…. Be carefull what you ask for… Your children could be practicing a religion you don’t like just because you demanded religion be taught in school… Teach it at home or in your church..

    • American Liberal

      Typo.. ” to many diffrent religions”..

  • American Liberal

    Who would want that Baptist nutcase Rev Phelps from Kansas teaching in our schools?… The one that shows up at funerals to protest… I also think he’s taking free speech a little to far… Every right has a common sense factor… And free speech has a responsibility that goes with it…

  • lili

    No Richard it’s not in our teachings to make converts we are not xian or muslims we let people believe in what they choose so long as it is not hurting anyone, and although I can respect your opinion regarding teaching religion in schools, it is unconstitutional. Further more I wish people would actually research things before they spew untrue facts about the “founding fathers” . As for liking your Jesus or not. I’ve read the bible many times and know it’s scripture and content better than most christians do, and if jesus were around today he would be appalled by his followers attitudes. Especially of their pious self righteousness. I actually have nothing but respect for xians who actually FOLLOW the teachings of their faith, but it is the ones who pick and choose what they want to believe that I disdain. As for the ACLU I think they are morons, and christians who think all other religions are wrong except theirs are no better than islamics

  • Enlightened one

    A rational honest person would only need to be on this site for a few minutes to come to the conclusion that rightwing Christians will lie through their teeth to promote their agenda… Example?.. They know the lies they spread about President Obama are not true … I personally don’t believe in your hell but if their were one I don’t have a doubt in my mind these so called Christians will have a special place there, along with Bush and Cheney… I wasn’t a huge Bill Clinton fan but the lies the religious right spread about him were dispicable… One was he had scores if people killed, another was he flew cocaine out of Mena Ark… I’ve heard so many flatout lies out of the Christian right that I have no doubt they’re some of the most evil people on earth…. Do I believe that about all Christians?.. No.. Just the Christian right..the fox news Christians , the Rush limbaugh Christians … Very evil vile people..

      This is America. Worship as you wish. Don’t tread on me. I can play on an even field so if no religious symbolism, clothing, language, etc. is permitted in the school system, then so be it. Islamic foot baths, prayer breaks, and head coverings included. I am happy to admit I do not know everything so “enlighten” me as to how Muslims will contribute to the positive direction of America? Include direct discussion on how Muslims can tolerate being part of the melting pot of religions in America if indeed Muslims view followers of all other religions as infidels. I embrace you as an American if you are a legal citizen, contribute positively to society, and defend the Constitution of the United States. If you live in this country with intent to erode the freedom earned by Americans, undermine the Constitution, or engage in subversive acts designed to impede or destroy democracy and capitalism, then I do not hesitate to say you are not welcome.

      E.O.,
      you and eyes have said that people that don’t have insurance are like thieves. What about the Muslims that refuse to have coverage, yet go to the ER for care??? Who pays for that? They refuse insurance for religeous reasons because it is likened to gambling!!!

    Than Christian teachers should be allowed to wear a cross around their neck. Will the ACLU stand up for their rights. Probably not. They will not protect the christians or the 2nd amendment.

    I’m a Muslim teacher in Oregon, the funny thing is I work with other teachers who wear crosses funny isn’t it?

    And as for the moron who made the comment about Muslims going to the ER, we remove out headscarves when it’s for any kind of medical propose.
    Stop making up garbage. Admit that your a racist and you want to hang all Muslims just like your loving white ancestors used to hang the blacks in this country…Not surprised to hear such hatred from people related to white supremacists.

    Bring back God and the 10 commandments in public schools and send the Muslims back to Suckistand!!!
