The US Supreme Court decided not to review the case of an Oklahoma police officer, who sued the city of Tulsa based on his religious convictions after being punished for refusing to attend a mandatory event in a mosque.
The Islamic Society in Tulsa held a law enforcement appreciation day, and police officer Paul Campbell Fields would not attend and would not force others to attend an event he believed should have been voluntary.
If the event had been held in a place of Satanic worship, would it have been mandatory also? Islam is responsible for more violence than any religion in the world. Only since 9/11, there have been over 24,000 acts of Islamic terror carried out. This number does not include the approximately 5000 honor killings each year or many of the Muslim terror attacks against Israelis, which are often filed under “political unrest.” It also does not factor in the millions upon millions of people who have been slaughtered in the name of Allah since Islam’s inception. Last week alone, nearly 700 people were murdered by Islamic terrorists, who were deeply religious Muslims.
Furthermore, the event was held in a mosque, where many terror plots are devised and where hatred and violence against non-Muslims are often preached. No matter what the event, and certainly a law enforcement appreciation day is a positive thing, why should any non-Muslim ever want to step foot inside a house of “worship” which doubles as a learning center for future terrorists?
NewsOK, H/t PW:
… He wrote an email to about a dozen department personnel saying, “It is my opinion and that of my legal counsel that forcing me to enter a Mosque when it is not directly related to a police call for service is a violation of my Civil Rights.
“Please consider this email my official notification to the Tulsa Police Department and the City of Tulsa that I intend not to follow this directive, nor require any of my subordinates to do so if they share similar religious convictions.”
Fields was reassigned within the department and investigated by Internal Affairs…
