I am appalled that the Gold’N Plump company is expected to accommodate the prayer rituals of Somali Muslim workers.
What are the other workers on the chain line supposed to do while the Muslims take a bath and pray? What about the perishable product on the line that would have to wait for unscheduled stoppage of the processing chain line? The ceremonial washing of feet and hands and face prior to prayer finds its origin in Exodus 30, verses 18-21. where Jewish priests were required to do this ceremonial washing. Muhammad laid it on all his followers to do that.
Is Gold‘N Plump expected to accommodate every weird religion that comes along? How about stopping the chain so some worker could play with poison snakes, or drink blood? Shame on the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Somalis for filing the lawsuit against Gold’N Plump., and scrooging them out of $365,000 just before Christmas.
Also recently in the news was an item about a Somali interpreter who filled out at least $1 million in false insurance claims to Medica health insurance and then went back to Somalia with the money. One might wonder if this money will end up in the hands of terrorists. If the Somalis are here because of chaos in their homeland, they are fast wearing out their welcome.
