Isa Seeks Answers & Offers His Opinion

Please brothers and sisters explain to me where we think this stuff is going to get us?

Look at the Muslim sister who sued because as a flight attendant she was expected to serve alcohol when she didn’t she was fired. We have this case, where your job in the US is to transport goods and when you don’t because it is something haram then you lose your job and sue. Last example is this growing wave of Muslims trying to get Eid recognized as a national holiday. Why? Who cares if non Muslims recognize Eid as a holiday?

The issue with all of this is in my humble opinion is compulsion in our religion which is forbidden. We are forcing our beliefs on to others. We as Muslims living in non Muslim countries have to choose jobs that are permissible. We should not be trying to force others to celebrate our holiday if we are trying to take our kids out of school to celebrate Eid and the school some how isn’t allowing us, or is threatening to fail your kid then you can sue. We should also not be wasting our chances for lawsuits on us taking jobs that we know we shouldn’t be doing and when asked to do something forbidden refuse then sue.

There are too many other opportunities of real discrimination, slander, as well as liable statements. How about instead of suing companies when we take jobs that present the possibility of something haram CAIR focus on suing news agencies when they lie and cause irreparable harm to Muslims. For example when Judge Jennie Pierro went on a tirade where she said ” KILL THEM, KILL THEM, BOMB THEM ,BOMB THEM, BOMB THEM'” Right after that a man was caught on his way to the largest Muslim community in Dearborn MI with explosives and when caught and asked why he responded: ” Because Jennie Pierro told me to.”

Where are the lawsuits against Fox news Corps and Jennie Pierro for this? Why wasn’t this woman charged with a felony because free speech is not protected when it causes violence. They are already spreading lies about Islam and Muslims in the west that we are “creeping sharia” or “sneaky jihad”. So as an exaggerated example, but not too far, off lets say a Muslims takes a job as a bouncer in a strip club and refuse to stop someone from rushing the stage because it is forbidden for us to look at naked women. Then we sue the company for firing us because they didn’t respect our religious freedom, This causes more of the Islamaphobes to scream that this is proof that Muslim want us to worship like them they want laws that force men to cover their eyes when they go in to strip clubs.

We as Muslims know we can not drink or do drugs. We know we can’t see naked women or men, or eat pork, or selling these goods and services. So lets be smart and avoid jobs that provides these goods or services and make sure that we are suing to secure our rights to practice our faith unmolested and not sue to force others to believe as we do.

About

Growing up in a small little town was a unique experience. Being out as a gay male was not a wise decision being amongst loggers and farmers. Things in my personal life made it necessary for me to move to a bigger and more accepting community, Thanks in part to a very good friend and his wife, this was made possible. The move as been very exciting; but scary and overwhelming at times. Although, my family knew I was gay the acceptance of my lifestyle felt more like "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" as they still made snide comments and jokes about gays in general. Being in my new surrounding and learning to be comfortable in my own skin while being introduced to others that embrace who they are has made me feel like a kid in a candy store but also like I need to hide behind someone out of the sense of needing security. As part of my exploration process, while using my experience as a radio announcer, my friend and I do a podcast every Thursday night addressing a variety of topics. I am the voice opposite Dru on The Druth. Taking yet another step in discovering and accepting who I am I launched “Loki’s Closet,” a weekly radio show on the “We Resisters Radio Network” covering topics that the LGTBQ community face on a daily basis. I am always seeking topics and ask for your help in this endeavor, what topics do you think I should talk about? Is there a topic that you think should be brought more to the forefront? I am also the moderator for “The Only Thing ‘Straight’ Here Is the Truth” a FaceBook group and also write a blog under the same title. It is my hope to educate and inspire people. I will accomplish this by sharing my personal experiences and hopefully having each of you share yours. As with anything in life not all topics discussed will be positive, however they will make you think. You cannot have the good without also acknowledging the uncomfortable issues. One person cannot make a very impactful change by themselves, however together as a team or family people will take notice.
