religious symbols

Why hasn’t this been reported in our media?

outraged

All around the world Universities are falling victim to Social Justice Warriors and other limp-wristed, panty-waist types seeking safe spaces and shutting down free speech in the very places that free speech should be encouraged.

If it isn’t Black Lives Matter it is various gay groups or Muslim Associations howling down freedom of speech.

Well, it’s happened here and to my knowledge hasn’t yet been reported by the mainstream media despite the awful precedence this sets.

Back in August, there was a debate involving Lindsay Perigo and Susan Devoy at the University of Auckland. The moot was “That this House would ban religious symbols in public.”

Lindsay Perigo was howled down as he gave his speech. Strangely there hasn’t been a murmur or a mutter from Susan Devoy about the issue and likewise nothing in the mainstream media. Why is that?

I’ll let Lindsay Perigo explain:

This is the speech I delivered almost in its entirety in my capacity as special commentator, along with Race Relations Commissioner Dame Susan Devoy, at Monday night’s semi-final in the intra-university Next Generation Debates series at Auckland University. I say “almost in its entirety” because a gaggle of Muslims became very vocal near the end of my speech and demanded, successfully, I be stopped at once for having gone over my allocated time. The point at which I was shut down is noted in the text below.

What a member of Young New Zealand First called “magnificent pandemonium” followed, with epithets flying back and forth, Dame Susan waiving her right of rebuttal and storming off from the table we were both sharing. ?? Read more »

Entitled Muslim Sues Boss For Telling Her 'No Hijab,' Judge Gives Her Nasty Surprise

Judge Juliane Kokott (pictured) not only ruled against a Muslim woman?s demand to wear the hijab at work, she also issued some good news for European businesses.

After 10 years of fighting a legal battle to be allowed to ignore company rules a Muslim convert was told by today’s face of the day Judge Juliane Kokott,that not only was the court ruling against her discrimination case, but that all companies in the EU can ban Muslim employees from wearing headscarves as long as they have a rule that states that workers must refrain from religious and political symbolism. This is a fair verdict as it treats all religions and political affiliations equally.One rule for all is as fair as it can get.

The headscarf ban ?may ? be justified in order to enforce a legitimate policy of religious and ideological neutrality pursued by the employer,? Juliane Kokott, a German advocate general at the EU Court of Justice in Luxembourg, said in a statement on Tuesday (31 May). Kokott said G4S was right to have a no-symbol policy ?because of the special nature of the work which G4S employees do? and because Muslim scarves or other religious paraphernalia would have ?a defining impact ? on the image of the firm.?

Kokott added that businesses must first establish ?a general company rule? that bans religious symbols of any kind, adding that it must be ?proportional? to all ideologies to be fair. Since Christians and Jews would not be allowed special rights in the workplace, Muslims should adhere to this rule just like everyone else.
