Chicken-Fried News: No scarf

Speaking of rulings, the U.S. Supreme Court recently decided in favor of a Tulsa woman who sued Abercrombie & Fitch because it refused to hire her after she wore a hijab to her job interview.

The court handed down a ruling in favor of Samantha Elauf, who argued that she wore the headdress because of her religious obligations, reported NewsOn6.com.

Many social media trolls lambasted Elauf … apparently because she is Muslim, so obviously, she’s part of a vast conspiracy to institute Sharia Law for everyone, everywhere. Or something like that. (We quit reading in order to protect our sanity.)

Well, we don’t believe the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in any way includes the forced acceptance or adherence of Sharia Law. But, heck, what do we know? Our publishers are attorneys who largely gave up practicing in order to run a tabloid (-size newspaper).

The court also cited the act in its 9-0 ruling.

We can’t forget to emphasize another big news item here: The Supreme Court agreed 9-0!
