home-depot

By Amy Elizabeth

A Home Depot in Dearborn MI was the latest victim succumbing to the demands of an organization that shouldn’t be in existence in the United States of America. An American company the home depot gets over powered by the Muslim Brotherhood terror linked organization CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) has cast. The employees will be subjected to cultural awareness training. The CAIR states this will help them accommodate the religious sensitivities of the Muslim employees and customers. Corporate and Managers gain a better understanding of Muslims and are taught Islam.

cair-highlightDoes Home Depot believe they need to “better serve their Muslim customers”? Here in America isn’t it a practice of retail corporations to better serve ALL of its customers? What exactly does this mean? Why do corporate managers need to understand their Muslim employees any better than their Jewish and Christian employees?
In CAIR’s booklet titled “An Employer’s Guide to Islamic Religious Practices” it sets demands upon employers that are seemingly outrageous and quite discriminatory to other religions. For example:
Friday is the day for congregational worship, called Jum’ah. The prayer generally takes place at a mosque during the noontime prayer and includes an address or sermon, and lasts a total of 45 to 90 minutes.
Performing the rituals of the pilgrimage may last five days during the second week of the twelfth month of the lunar calendar. However, considerable variations exist in trip arrangements, and group travel may take 10-21 days. Muslim employees may choose to make pilgrimage using vacation time.
Employers may wish to modify dress code policies so that religiously-mandated attire is addressed as a diversity issue. For example, many corporations have a policy forbidding the wearing of “hats.” This rule may be amended to exempt items such as head scarves and skullcaps.
A Muslim employee should not be asked to serve or sell religiously offensive products, such as alcoholic beverages
These so-called Muslim “accommodations” are nothing more than the forcing of American institutions to comply with a law that is completely and unequivocally antithetical to our Constitution and our laws. It is called Sharia Law, and the acceptance of the above demands is opening a dangerous door that will soon be unable to close.
In a world where Christians are being slaughtered by muslims, how can any American, let alone American Corporation blatantly ignore the travesty by embracing the enemy.

  1. Gerald Tietz – The Constitution was written to put EVERYONE on equal playing fields! If a certain group does not want to accept EQUAL TERMS then they can opt out of this country! A Majority of Muslims that refuse to assimilate to American culture are just that! They need to opt out of being in this country!

  2. Gerald Tietz ; Tell me then why is the Goverment forseing stores like hobby looby to go against the beleafe on birth controll . It seams to go one wau and not the other.

  3. Gerald Tietz ya Congress should pass no laws….if a company does not want their employees to wear hats they either need to get over it or go find a different job.

  4. Americans need to wake up and realize the actions that Islam has against non-Muslims!

    They believe that it is their duty to convert you to Islam (by words of encouragement or at the threat of your life), If you choose not to convert … you have the option to have your head removed from your shoulders or accept the status of a 'dhimmi' (you are to accept what ever treatment that a Muslim wishes to give you and be thankful for it because your alternative is … to have your head removed from your shoulders!

    Islam does not come to teach 'peace' – it comes to teach submission! You either submit or are at war with Islam! I choose to say; I AM AT WAR WITH ISLAM! (They are not in alignment with the teachings of Jesus!

  5. Do all u 1st amendment backers for satanic cults, goat fucking Muslims, etc… really think ol George and boys meant any of those idiots?? No. If some towel head or pos satan lover would have disputed our God in any way…they would have been properly executed. That goes for you freak atheists to. Can a day not go by that doesn't have idiot liberals and our country bending over backwards to not offend greasy, ass sniffing Muslims? Just one fucking day!

  6. Now it will be much easier to support local, family owned lumber yards and hardware stores. Home Depot, you just blew it. You're cowards. No guts or backbone, obviously throughout that whole area. I know someone who moved from there. Nobody is saying, "This is the United States of America" and you will live by our rules and laws. NOBODY!

  7. As a Muslim American Veteran, those request have no bearing on fellow employees or customers. What is the difference between allowing Jewish men to where yamica and Muslim men to where Kufis? Allowing employees to use their earned vacation time to make Hajj is no different then allowing Jews or Christians to go to Israel for religious observances. The pure ignorance expounded here is reprehensible

  8. There's a muslim CEO somewhere in upper management, fire he or she's fucking ass, piss on Sharia, piss on allah, piss on mohammed, piss on the quaran and fuck over the muslims!

  9. I would tell CAIR to get the hell out of my store and stop trying to push their muslim shit off on Americans! If the muslims want the job then follow the rules like everyone else and stop trying to get special treatment just because of your sharia laws BS!

  10. Every job I've had, if I wanted to practice my Catholic faith and recognize Good Friday, or bible study I had to either wait until after work or take vacation time. Companies give vacation time, why can't the Muslim faith be treated the same as the Christian faith? I feel discriminated against for being Christian at this point in American culture. Absurd.

  11. All this is ..is another level of control Islam is being allowed in our society….we live in a republic under a constitution….if they don't like it they need to live somewhere else…this is the same avenue the sodomites took…they indoctrinated businesses the same way…so it seems like all the enemies of wisdom and commom sense have rights…and everyone else has NO rights….it's going to take force to get these animals out of here….the left is only worried about votes….but tell me this….the muzzies hate the sodomites,the demokkkrats love them both….so who do they side with?.. Our nation is in such confusion….the water is beginning to boil….prepare your family,make preparations to protect yourselves….look at Britian …if that's not enough of a wake up call….they be ready…boycott Home Depot

  12. Home Depot and Lowes are no longer an option for home repair items. They can sell to their mooslim friends.

  13. Ryan Quinn … I really don't believe that people are really expecting you to quit… of course you have to pay rent, bills, etc. The problem is that people are so sick and tired of being over taken by these idiots who cater to these fools that are overtaking America. I'm sure it's no attack on you… You're in a hard place. But if all the American workers got together and fought back for equal rights, I'm sure Americans would stand behind them. Form a strike with all the workers… call the news papers… publish your grievances publicly… and fight back…. but no, we just take it…. meanwhile all of our rights are being violated and nobody will fight back. America is scared of them, and they know it, that's why they're winning this war… America is to chicken to fight back.

  14. and you also need to be able to live with the decisions you make. I, for one, would find another way to pay my bills and get my benefits than to work for home depot. and don't go complaining about how difficult it is. I know exactly how difficult it is, i'm almost 40 and i'm starting over in a completely new career, at the bottom, because I had to. in a single-earner, double-income household (that means I live alone and I have two jobs). either you bend over and take it and complain you had no choice, or you realize you do have a choice and you make a stand.

  15. Well the way the govt scared everyone about Muslims when 9/11 happened blaming every muslim for what happened got a lot of people not treating Muslims fair when they had nothing to do with 911 .it was the damn govt who took out 3 buildings so wake up and slap yourself

  16. Yeah well here is the deal this is the job these are the duties of that job and these are our corporate rules if you want the job you have to abide by our corporate policy we are a non religious organization you do that on your own time! It's very simple!

  17. IF it is only the listed items in the article that does not seem unreasonable, though I suppose there could be places where the headscarf would not be good, mainly for safety reasons, and face coverings are never appropriate for any American worker that I can think of. That would be a bridge too far. BUT the point is well taken that we need to be VERY cautious about changing our laws or customs to fit foreigners and basically foreign religions, though they do have freedom to practice.

  18. Ryan Quinn pretty soon you wont have that job anyway because of attitudes like yours….keep letting these muzzies do and get whatever they want and we are done for as a nation…better enlighten yourself on their agenda…

    .

  19. whatever the muzzies want……thats what is wrong…they come here and try and force their cult called Islam on us bull crap go back to where you frickn came from if you want your rights because you sure are taking mine away

  20. Well if they don't like the store policies, then they have a choice NOT to work there. Shouldn't force the corporation to change policy to accomodate them. WRONG!!!!

  21. I don't think we know the extent of influence the Muslim's in areas like Dearborn have unless someone has actually lived there. I have only read about the problems, but I feel in my bones there are some very serious issues. And, like so many other cultural issues once they begin, how do you rid yourself of their influence and permanence?

  22. Wait, Home Depot sells alcohol?? Who knew?!?! Home Depot does give me a 10% discount for being Retired Military. Other places do not.

  23. We have laws that prohibit people from abusing another person and enslaving them! Sharia law is not part of the Muslim Religeon it's part of the Extreme radical Muslim way of life so it really has nothing to do with the Religeon itself! If they violate our laws that are already in place then they shal be arrested and tried accordingly! If your Religeon requires of you certain things and those things are not compatible with a job position you make a personal choice nobody should have to bend over backwards for your personal choice of Religeon

  24. We allow Jewish people to wear their religous headwear, so also Muslims should be allowed the same. If they want to go to prayer on Fridays for "45 to 90 minutes" thats fine, just remember to punch out first, you aren't getting paid for it.

  25. Gerald Tietz Are you a Muslim? What did you think of the Holocaust? Was that ok with you too? Dearborn has been taken over by them and they will take over more. Do you live among them? True, they are all not that way but the majority are. We allow them over here because they are abused in their country, so guess what they will abuse you!!!!!!!

  26. Gerald Tietz In a court room yesterday it was judged that Islam or even Buddism is a not protected by the constitution of our country! Fuck Islam( Ideology) and fuck CAIR

  27. it has begun…. Soon they will take over the USA, which is in agenda 21. They will own the usa, odumass plans all along. Thats why he is sneaking in thousand s of them at a time.So far now that are over 240,000 of them here in the states all illegals..

  28. A Muslim employee should not be asked to serve or sell religiously offensive products, such as alcoholic beverages. Just my humble opinion, can they sell to gay people? If not….what about the baker that refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, because it was religiously offensive to him?

  29. I would be more inclined to accept this as credible if it didn't contain so many grammatical and spelling errors. The "document" was very easily doctored up on Microsoft Word, a screenshot was taken, and the selected words highlighted digitally. It's very likely that the author of this "article" also generated the document, or had somebody whose grammar and spelling abilities aren't as severely lacking, is a disgruntled customer or former employee who was fired and wants to try bringing the company down. I don't buy a single word of this at all. Nice try, though.

  30. Gerald Tietz Islam-e is not a religion but a political animal with many legally required rituals. These regulation [laws] that as a Muslim must be followed over the US Constitution and U. S. code of law. There is no 'concept' of separation of religion and state. The state is the holder of what is [viewed in the west ], religious practices. As Joseph said Islam and its rituals are more akin to Nazism ritual of the famous Hitler salute. Every citizen was required to give reverence to their leader. Islam-e rituals may look more holy but the requirements set by law are the same, social obligation and failure is punished and punishment is dictated by Sharia Law.

  31. Gerald Tietz You are right. The 1st Amendment is the 1st Amendment and it protects the Govt's right to control religion. In other words freedom of religion is freedom from religion if one chooses.

    In this instance, Islam is forcing it's 'religious' (political) views on Home Depot.
    If everyone is to be treated equally, then the rules apply to all employees. No hats is no hats. OR everyone can wear hats. If some can and some can't, that's discrimination based on religion.

  32. Any truth to this and it should just shut the doors, This is America, USA and all cust's and employees should be treated to the same american standards. NO making up your own rules in this country from other countries, religions, etc., we have enough of that crap attempting to take place from our own US Govt.. . America rules in America……. Shut the Doors, Larry m.

  33. It hasn't been implemented as of yet and in Alabama ISLAMIZATION was shot down in the courts! It has been ruled that Islam is not protected under freedom of religion ! CAIR is a hate group that is beginning to be exposed for what it is!

  34. Kristen Loveless Kroll I am 54 years old, my mother is 76….as far back as we can remember there was always prayer in meetings schools etc, you swore on the bible to tell the truth God was on our money in our pledge etc. It has been for years and year and years. There have been atheists and other religions around for years and no one had a problem until all this political correctness came into play. All of a sudden God should be removed and pushed out because someone was offended. Now the gay lifestyle is being paraded and taught as acceptable all to keep from offending a particular group of people. The morals in this country are in the toilet. Sharia Law is just another part of being politically correct. Hell all players get a trophy and no score is kept so as not to hurt any one's feelings. Kids aren't allowed to know disappointment so what will it be like when they reach adulthood? Political correctness needs to be tossed out! If this country quit bending over backwards to pander to everybody and stuck to what was always the American way you wouldn't have disabled vets on the street while you have illegal aliens getting health care, food stamps, excuse me EBT, welfare etc. We are so busy bowing to and taking care of everyone else we neglect OUR OWN! I say if you are here illegally or have a problem with American laws and practices get the HELL out.

  35. Ryan Quinn You are punishing the company for adopting this rule by not patronizing them. They lose money. They will get the message that their customers disagree with them. Its not that hard to understand.

  36. Joseph Salema I agree Joseph, maybe Gerald should go visit one of those countries like I did, and see for himself, what they are really like.. It is scary. The women are scum but the men can have sex with animals if there is no wife.. GO figure.

  37. Joseph Salema, there is a website that will tell you everytning you need to know about the "religion" ( CULT would be a better term) called islam. It's called "thereligionofpeace.com." A word of warning, it is graphic is parts.

  38. What a crock I hope Lowes doesn't follow them. If you can't do your job the American way go back to the middle east and stay there.

  39. Melanie Tanner Good for you!! Small, independent businesses are the lifeblood of our country and probably yours, too. The owners and workers live and pay taxes in our town and contribute to the local economy by not sending profits and earnings to a faceless corporation.

  40. Home-Depot will never be used by me or any of my family members again even if they were to change back, they crossed my red line, if they want dirty muslims running there show so be it, but i refuse to be a part of it, or in any way support it, DEATH TOO ALL ISLAM…

  41. Ryan Quinn — I am sorry you feel as if your customers would be punishing you but it is actually the company that Is doing so…. We cannot allow Sharia Law to come to pass in America and this is just the beginning of the manipulation that these Muslim Factions will do to make people bow to their wishes…. I would not shop there either.

  42. This post is total BS. Accommodating religions is being a decent person, but since some employers are arseholes, we have the EEO law for it. If your Christian law says you must not cut your beard and must not drive, we have to accommodate your Amish butt even though the rest of us are not Amish. The appeal to outright bigotry in this post and the responses is chilling. You're arseholes and bigots.

  43. Gerald Tietz Then it is unlawful for them to not let children pray or say the pledge in school and for not allowing churches to have navity scenes…it is not ok for one religion to be allowed and others not to…Jewish people are not allowed to wear thier caps to work so why should Muslims be allowed to wear their ..head covering…

  44. Angel Calvillo Spoken like someone who spends all their time picking and choosing how others should practice their religion. You don't even know what's in the Quran, so spare us your ignorant antics.

  45. Dale Bruce How do you figure, exactly? I've worked for them for years, and I'm curious what you think you know.

  46. Lynne Tuck, seems to me like you need a few history lessons. We all learned in school that In God We Trust and "under God" weren't added to the United States money or pledge until the 1950s when everyone was so worried about communism. Also, there was a time in history when women had no rights; we couldn't vote, or own property and all of that was defended by passages in the bible. Are you really saying that just because something was done one way for years and years that it shouldn't change? I bet you enjoy a lot of freedoms that your mother, and grandmother never dreamed of. I'm just so surprised that the message that so many of our young people hear today from older Americans is a message of hate. I'm just thankful that so many of them don't listen to people like you any more. There is hope for our future. You seem to be the one that is having problems with American laws and practices. In America "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal". Seems like you only want to extend that sentiment to people who are just like you.

  47. Ryan Quinn Why do you work at a company that employs terrorists and then gives them preferential treatment OVER Americans?

  48. Gerald Tietz — No, it doesn't go for everybody. There are still headhunter and cannibal "religions" in the world that US law quite properly rejects and disallows. Islam is borderline on that score, and with every encroachment foisted by CAIR on Constitutional liberties, more civilized Western people are being nudged toward declaring Islam ILLEGAL and banned from Western society. Some say, rightly so. Other than that, I agree. The 1st Amendment should cover all ACCEPTABLE religions without favoring one over another. That said, with every beheading and reported mutilations of young girls, Islam creeps closer to tipping my own scale toward outlawing it entirely, like the Thuggee of India.

  49. Merrilee Slaton i never said they had the right to do as they wish !!1….why does everyone insist on putting words in my mouth …quote were i said anything even remotely close to that ! the ONLY thing i have said in any post here ..are you listening you can read english right?….I will repeat it again someone made the statement that just because lowes was allowing a woman to were head wear and inferred that act alone was sharia law…I merely stated that the 1st amendment is the 1st amendment and as such she sas the RIGHT to freely exorcice her express her religion you do realize Im being put on the bbq for quoting and stating what is in our constitutions 1st amendment do you not ………….you nor anyone here heard me say i think sharia is a good idea or even a religion thats a fact..

  50. Ryan Quinn — Workers are not without a collective voice. If Home Depot workers are not unionized, you may need to look into that. You can bring pressures to bear that would outweigh the management's wimpish desire to accommodate and appease the beheaders. A boycott may ensue and it would be a shame if it hurts the Home Depot staff. Put up your own good fight NOW, before it comes to that.

  51. Gerald Tietz YOU ARE WHATS WRONG WITH THIS COUNTRY.. you are not supposed to FORCE someones beliefs down anyones throats, and thats what the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD DOES. and yes MUSLIM WOMEN should be allowed to wear what they want BUT when it comes to OUR LAWS ex: MUSLIM WOMAN REFUSES TO REMOVE HER FACE COVERING FOR HER DRIVERS LICENSE PHOTO, this is breaking OUR LAWS.. and thats what they do.. SO if you thinks this is ok, again YOU ARE WHATS WRONG WITH THIS COUNTRY..

  52. Michael Manzanotti so what your saying when it comes To obama strict adherence the the constitution ….give no quarter. hold the toe to the line dont let him get away with shit ….but it perfectly ok to pick and choose or even throw out the same document when it comes to muslims?…interesting …..this is all a moot point then this whole conversation …everything.
    …………….then .this country's already fucked ……….and the muslims had very little to do with it …or it was way to easy for 'em …pick your epitaph

  53. Cookie Carletti it was head scarf relax……… where were you when they were taking 10 commandments off you local court building?…throat is a throat …dont really matter much whos doing the shoving then right?

  54. Joseph Salema Looks like a RELIGION to me. You are correct about Nazism, Communism, Marxism. They are in fact IDEOLOGIES.

    SHARIA LAW : This is kind of like their version of our Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Ten Commandments rolled into one. So its not going to be allowed to merge with any of Americas laws. I'ts a complete system in it's self.

  55. Kristen Loveless Kroll oh yes I have the freedom to go to work and pay for those that don't want to work. They have the freedom to stay home with their children while I have to work to support mine. I have the freedom to pump my own gas, open my own door etc. I am old fashioned and would rather be home taking care of my own children. While I take a refresher course in history maybe you should retake math. I wasn't around in the 1950's and my mother was young. While you are at it you should check some of the individual state laws. In some states women still can't own property. I stated years and years. I am the wife of a disabled vet. I deal with the night sweats, the yelling in his sleep and even being hit in his sleep as he still battles towel heads. He worked on a detail where he and one of the "peaceful" muslims shared about his family and invited him to his home for dinner all while scheming to kill my husband. If they had not been delayed in meeting this man and other civilian Iraqis that worked on base he and his fellow soldiers would be dead right now. Do I hate free loaders that are perfectly capable of working piggy backing on me or illegals that do the same you bet I do! Do I hate the few trample on the many all under the guise of betterment you betcha! Will I fight with my last breath to keep Sharia Law out of my country? You bet your sweet ass! When I was in school where we began with prayer and the pledge of allegiance you didn't have to have locks on classroom doors, metal detectors at the entrance or police on the property! You have all that now and kids with no moral conscience killing kids and folks like you standing around wide eyed asking "how could this happen" then you run off and start demanding guns be banned! I told my husband the other day I wish I could drink the koolaid and go about ignorantly happy. Maybe I could sleep without my stomach in knots wondering and worrying what the future holds for my children. I am not sure how you get a message of hate from my opinion that people should earn their way, be legal and stop all this political correct crap. If you knew me, which you don't you would know I am the first to agree all men are created equal. I drill into my childrens heads judge a person by who they are ( moral or potheads and trouble makers..in case that is over your head Good or bad) not what color they are or their bank balance! It has nothing to do with race or religion. If you think Sharia Law should be allowed in this country I hope and pray it begins in your town…that you get what you want. Then I hope to see you realize everything is not always a good change!

  56. Greta Hoostal so you would have been perfectly fine if I told you under no circumsatance would you be allowed to were your head wear at work …and oh dont wear any religious jewelry as well and oh btw you have to work Saturday and Sunday…some how just dont think the 1st amendment would not have crossed your mind

  57. It’s in Dearborn. No big surprise. The place is overrun by the muzzies anyway. I don’t know about you but I have no reason to visit the pig stye. If I were Home Depot, I would have closed my Dearborn store rather than knuckle under to the goat raper’s demands.

  58. Angel Calvillo … all you can do is Christian bashing… shame on you, you are so ignorant that you cannot even speak of the issue at hand intelligently. You have no clue what your talking about… your ignorance is showing !

  59. Robert Green Sams club and other have been allowing this for years…this is nothing new…they just did not do a class on the subject and they where allowing this way before 9/11

  60. Ryan Quinn… check out Francine Sabisch post …. now that's how you handle these idiots….

    Francine Sabisch
    Everyone saying they will never shop there again, that is great to say it here, but you NEED to write to HOME DEPOT….they don't read these posts. Put your words and thoughts into action. If these groups can force Home Depot to do this, SO CAN WE!!!!! HOME DEPOT, 2455 Paces Ferry Road, NW Atlanta, GA 30339-4024 or call at 770-433-8211

  61. This entire comment section is what is wrong with America… I guess I had no idea how bad it really was. Thank you Gerald for trying to be the lone voice for equality and in support of the constitution. To all of those wishing for genocide against an entire religion (yes it is a religion and there are over 1.6billion muslims. That is 23% of the population of Earth) I hope you never find yourself on the receiving end of the hate you are spewing. If genocide were to be committed in response to a member of any religion committing acts of violence and terrorism then there would be no religion left in this world.

  62. I feel the constitution deals with governments treatment of various religions. I feel any business that is seperate from govt. and their funding should be able to do as fit. Therefore they should not have to cave to CAIR and there beliefs. If the business is sued, the courts should immediately dismiss as they (the courts) should have not authority to tell a private business how to operate. I feel the courts have way more power than our constitution intended and need to be put in check by voters. Simply put, majority of voters should be able to strike out any court decision anywear. POWER OF THE PEOPLE !!!

  63. Gerald Tietz , You are correct on a lot of what you have said but, Show me where any other religion has forced others to succumb to their ideals? Christmas and the other holidays are optional…. No one has ever forced a company to make holiday decorations for a Christian holiday. People will just not go to the place that makes them unwelcome.

  64. if there are to be treated different than any other person in this country that is grounds for reverse discrimination, and maybe the ACLU should look into that, oh I forgot they dont work foe americans no more lol

  65. Well, excuuuuuuuse me! If, as you say, we're supposed to "…better serve ALL of its customers," then HOWCOME EVERY DAMNED THING HAS TO BE WRITTEN IN SPANISH IN THIS COUNTRY??????????

  66. This isn't Sharia Law. This is about respecting customs in their religion. None of these affect your daily life. This is allowing the scarves and caps to be worn as well as respecting their customs. None of this will interfere with your life because it's not being forced on you. Just continue being decent human beings and not disrespecting people different from you. Carry on.

  67. Ok really people…talk about going overboard. I work at Home Depot and it's not like that here in Texas. They try to make accommodations for everyone. This article makes it sound like they are bowing down to one religion and screw all the others. I swear people are turning into lemmings. Instead of maybe researching..they jump on the first "article" that pops up on the internet and everyone wants to boycott, which in turn could make A LOT of American workers lose their jobs. So instead of calling their local stores, to ask about policy or talk to a manager, they decide to just jump in blindly and follow the others who don't know what their talking about.

  69. The problem is everyone claims they will no longer shop at Home Depot and we all know this will not happen. I'll drive by on a Saturday and guarantee it will be packed. Unfortunately this too shall pass just like all the others. As long as their brother is running this country, we will have to deal with this kind of stuff.

  70. I shop at Home Depot. A lot. While I'm not thrilled about this I'll continue to shop there. Once they have a basket of rocks labled, "For stoning your whores and fags, FREE" I will undoubtedly shop elsewhere.

  71. I have and im sticking with my comment. Im not gonna be ignorant to one group of people just because of what some people of their culture do. I have friends that are muslim and I support their religious rights just like my jewish friends, muslim friends, catholic, hindu, etc. I was wasnt raised to be ignorant and treat people so unfairly. Just because one catholic person likes little boys doesnt mean they all do. Just because some radical muslims wanna blow up buildings doesnt mean they all do

  72. Ryan Quinn You employees need to say …. or demand that these changes be stopped or you will lose all your business. I for one will never shop there until I hear that this has been overturned.

  73. Thanks for sharing the article. I find the false premises and conclusions in this article to be very disturbing. Sensitivity training for employees has been around a long time and covers all types of situations, sexual harassment, racial discrimination, etc. We are a nation that was founded on freedom of religion and I can't see how sensitivity training changes any laws, it only educates the employees as to some of the cultural differences of this country's citizens.

  74. Gerald Tietz While you have every right to believe as you do, I can't go into much less work somewhere while coving my face, they would look at me as a possible robber so why can ANYONE get to be maskes or covered??

  75. Karen Jensen Von Allmen I've tried to read quite a few of these. We, on a whole have a different view here in Canada. I agree with some things. Like here our Mounted Police have a uniform that can be changed to meet the religious views of other cultures but I don't agree with that. On the other hand, I think we need to be tolerant of people and their cultures. Our public schools no longer can have a Christmas concert, instead they have a holiday concert and they are not allowed to put up a Xmas tree. I think that is silly and I don't see how a xmas tree can offend anyone. But I would like to see everyone live together harmoniously and I am not an extremist so if a bunch of workers have to take some extra training….big whoop. Who cares if the guy down the street prays on Friday at noon….or can't work on Saturday because it's a holy day….or Sunday for the same reason.
    Just like interracial/interfaith marriages in two hundred years hopefully we will all live as just people.

  76. Home depot has got my last dollar… and if lowes does the same then they have got my last dollar too. Let these rag head sand lovers support them and lets see how long they stay in business…

  77. I totally agree with what you both said. You can't tell a persons religion by looking at them. That being said what about the Christians who go to church every Sunday and then the rest of the week they are a**holes. They are not following their religious teachings i.e. being tolerant etc. Or the Catholics who weren't allowed at one time to eat meat on Friday but now they can. Times change and so do people. I think we need to be tolerant of everyone…except bigots. If we went to their country they would not treat us or our religion kindly, we should be better than that in North America. I am from Canada but isn't the U.S. the land of the free or is that only if you conform?

  78. Sandi, isn't there something in the bible about being kind to everyone or does that not apply to you, or maybe it only applies on Sundays. Maybe you're a Sunday Christian. You know….where every other day of the week you're an idiot.

  79. Idk how true but Lowes n Home Depot are owned by a husband and qife one owns one and one owns the other. Fml!!!

  80. Do they (chair) care about my religious rituals, no they don't, and I don't care about theirs. Any business that wants to offend me with any type of religious practices I will take my money and spent it elsewhere.

    just educate yourself… If they get their way … you loose… your daughters loose… your grand daughters loose… this is truly a highly personal matter… This is not about religion… it is about sharia law… if you love the females in your family, just humor me… look up sharia law… and then comment again… I look forward to hearing what you think after you have done this.

  82. I started to read a lot of these and make comments, but I just can't do it anymore. You guys are IDIOTS and have a terrible country where no one is allowed to believe anything that you don't approve of first, even though you are supposed to be the land of the free you really aren't. Why would anyone want to live in the United States. Don't say it's the greatest country because if these comments are a sampling or a representation of the people that live there then you leave a lot to be desired. Wonder what your black president thinks? hmmmm

  83. How about requiring them to attend Christian awareness training, Jewish, Buddhist etcetera etc etc if they are offended go anywhere else. Show me no respect you get none from me

  84. Joseph Salema, Gerald Tietz is correct. Islam is a religion. It's not the religion I agree with, but it is a religion. You're right. We should learn about Islam but we also need to learn and follow the religion we belong to. If we strictly follow the thought that Islam is about subjugation and domination, then you can say Protestantism is just ideology and not a religion. After all King Henery VIII forced Catholics to renounce their faith and forced them to worship in the Church of England. Parts of the Catholic Church had their inquisition. Worshippers have been forced at one time or another by all these religious bodies. They are definately religions, Islam included.

  85. I'm sorry everyone.

    Even as a Christian, I don't see anything wrong with companies giving Muslims special treatment. If it's Buddhists next week, fine. It's a free country. If they roll out red carpets every time the Dhalia Lama walked in….whatever!

    I'm not going to be like, "what about men? what about Christians? what about my itchy panties in a bunch?" (*said in mocking ~whiny~ Rock voice*)

    Yes, it involves training employees. So what? They signed up for it. I'm not rich either. But if my job started requiring employees to train how to focus on Buddhists, I'd be like, WHATEVER. Because I asked to be hired there.

    The politics….well, it's all for money. And Home Depot CHOSE TO DO IT because they don't want to lose revenue from the Muslim community. Otherwise, they would have told them to shove off!

  86. Not all muslims believe and practice those things. Most Muslim women want rights. Most also want their children to live in a country where theres not a war outside their door. I believe that everyone no matter what religion has the same rights. Attire, holidays, etc. Thats really what this whole thing is about. They want people to be educated, not ignorant. Because no ones gonna see a jewish person walk in and question it, but if someone is muslim and you clearly know that, everyone freaks out like shits gonna get blown up. If any other religion wanted to pass a law like this nobody would blink an eye

  87. I agree with Gerald Tietz. Our country was founded on religious freedom. It does not apply to just Christians, Jews or Catholics. It applies to all religions. The Muslim faith requires a certain mode of dress and worship. They are just trying to insure that their followers will be able to observe these in a working environment. The intolerance that most of you are showing is how the problems begin.

  88. Heather Calderone Mangione I was born in Canada to parents who in turn immigrated there from a country devastated by ,Racialism bigotry and hate our family came here legally in the early sixties .at least
    my parents had the common decency to learn English before they got here
    And never took a dime of charity or government hand out…ever
    my parents worked hard
    My dad helped this country put man on the moon
    My mom was hard worker and good mother and the USA was all that it was supposed to be free and prosperous
    provided you helped your self ,put a little away to get ahead anything was possible
    I love this country and the principles it was founded on and admire and honor the document that has been directly responsible for what made this country
    sadly to say today …what it once was..
    .part of America died for me today
    And I cant even really tell you who inflicted the wound my fellow citizens who seem to see the founding document as some kind of trampoline you can jump on and jump off back onto at whim of particular convenience ? stand up for it one moment and then scorn it later
    or was it a government that sees it as an inconvenience and nuesense?
    bigotry ?
    did it lose its of a sense of unity …?
    was it the realization not all conservatives see things in the same way
    I dont have an answer..
    maybe all of the above
    I just dont think I'll see America the same tomorrow
    As I did yesterday ……..sure i'll still love it theres no better place on earth
    but it wont be the same..really was not prepared to see it change that much in just 12 hours

  89. This is going on in Michigan, cause that is where the largest majority of Muslims LIVE. They are at a huge % there….did you know?

  90. David W. Kackert Sr. Sigh,.. shows where your head is at,…. grouping blacks like that,.. I can see you are clueless so I won't waste time lecturing,.. but if you REALLY believe that "blacks" hold anyone else to a "higher standard than they do themselves", (All 44 million of us.) then you need to get out more.
    Silly shit like this is why so many whites are called racists.

  91. Gerald Tietz I like your thoughts! I try to see everyone's point of view, but I don't like bigotry. My in-laws came from Italy in the late '50's, father-in-law could speak some English, mother-in-law couldn't, I think she was just embarrassed by her accent but she could read and understand it. They lived in a predominately Italian area, celebrated holidays in the way they did when they were growing up and tried to integrate nicely. But nobody told them they couldn't celebrate a Saints day, or go crazy for soccer, or eat an extreme amount of pasta or wear black for their entire life when their spouse died. It didn't seem like they were hated for being different. They worked hard, had 2 or 3 families living in one house so they could each save up for their own home. On the hand Italians were called "greasy wops", were given the dirty work i.e. digging ditches, construction etc. It seems, thinking about it now, that every generation has a culture they are not comfortable with and it all stems really from ignorance. Not knowing what these people and their cultures are about. Nobody thinks anything of the Italian decent anymore. So, I wonder when will this end with the muslims and what who will the next generation "pick on".

  92. Gerald Tietz I agree. I got no problem with a chick covering her face in Lowes. I got a problem when you start doling out sensitivity classes.

  93. Heather Calderone Mangione We can't forget the "judge not lest ye be judged" part as well. To everyone else: A lot of Christians ARE hypocrites – it's a fact. I was at a Catholic school that, in the 80s, forbade 2 black boys from going to school there. They had to go to COURT to get in & only wound up getting in because the the woman he married (white) already had a daughter there. What I learned from them was "love thy neighbor, as long as they are EXACTLY like you!" and FAR too many I meet today hold strong & true to that. Spare me the "learn your facts" tirade. I learned that the Old & New Testaments CLEARLY contradict each other, and people who follow the Old call themselves Christians even though Christ wasn't BORN YET!! Makes a LOT of sense… NOT! I've studied roughly 14 religions, and several were variations of Christianity – it included going to the churches/ceremonies/etc. That being said, NO religion should get favouritism over another – NONE of them, including Christianity. Period. This country wasn't "founded" on it – this country was "founded" before you got here by the Native Americans. The Kuran (or Quran) has 2 distinct versions (much like the Bible has various versions – and depending on which one they are, can flip the context of certain passages 180 degrees). One version is nothing but violence- it's seriously got nothing else in it except maybe oppression. Violent, misogynistic rubbish. The other version has some very striking similarities to the Bible. I don't give 2 craps what religion you are or practice as long as you don't hurt anyone with it, or try to force everyone else to practice it too.

  94. It’s interesting that they want to not have to sell or serve religiously offensive products, yet Hobby Lobby and other businesses are expected to provide morning after pills which they feel are offensive to their religious convictions.

  95. Fuk home depot for bowing down to cair. This is America and we dont support or believe in sharia law. Follow the constitution or go back where you came from as you and your sharia law are not wanted here !

  96. Those things alone are not offensive. I don’t have much of a problem with that. I have a very big problem when these rules are forced on the non-Muslims. Is a liquor store going to be forced to hire a muslim? If they do hire a Muslim they would have to shut down the business because it would be in conflict with Islamic laws. Muslims don’t have to work at any of these places. No one is forcing them to.

  97. Those that live near these stores should put up picket lines at the the stores. I have a large contact order to be filled later this week, but it will be taken else where. I quite Home Depot before of their support of the homo agenda. Since they changed that agenda I was going to start doing business with them again. Now I am completely removing them from consideration.

  98. Doesnt the Home Depot already make allowances for other religious beliefs like Judaism? I don’t see how this is different. They have a right to their beliefs even if I don’t agree with them.

  99. Doesn’t seem like Christian Shariah Law is much better:

    Happy is the one who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks.
    Psalm 137:8-9

    Their infants will be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses will be looted and their wives violated.
    Isaiah 13:15-17

    Their bows will strike down the young men; they will have no mercy on infants, nor will they look with compassion on children.
    Isaiah 13:17-19

    He also put to the sword Nob, the town of the priests, with its men and women, its children and infants, and its cattle, donkeys and sheep.
    1 Samuel 22:18-20

    Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.’”
    1 Samuel 15:2-4

  100. I did $14,000 worth of business with you last year. You can check. It was in Ft Walton. I will do no more with you ever. If you kowtow to the muslims, I will buy no more from you.

  101. Well if we had our grandfather’s still in charge of this country , you know the good old boys from WWll this kind of crap would not fly in this country they would just simply refuse to buy product from Home depot throughout the land and the real company would show up and that would be the end of it.

  102. Sorry Amy, but you’re not a Christian and you’re definitely not a patriot, you are a piece of scum though. … “Chesterfield County, Va., to the state assembly, Nov. 14, 1785: “Let Jews, Mehometans and Christians of every denomination enjoy religious liberty…thrust them not out now by establishing the Christian religion lest thereby we become our own enemys and weaken this infant state. It is mens labour in our Manufactories, their services by sea and land that aggrandize our Country and not their creeds. Chain your citizens to the state by their Interest. Let Jews, Mehometans, and Christians of every denomination find their advantage in living under your laws.” http://www.loc.gov/loc/lcib/0205/tolerance.html

  103. Why are we even allowing these people onto our land, much less providing support to most of them? America is full now and we don’t need any more especially people that have not evolved.

  104. Dearborne MI has the highest concentration of Muslim Americans in the US. Home Depo is changing their policies in that one city to better reach the community. There is nothing wrong with that if they think it will help their sales in that particular store.

    When my fellow conservatives cry wolf over stupid non-issues like this it pisses me off because we as a group loose credibility and political capital on the issues that really matter.

  105. What does selling hardware have to do with any religious beliefs?…I work for a hardware company in California, and I don’t discuss religion or other personal beliefs with my customers…I just help them with their projects, and they’re on their way. We need to stop letting the Muslims roll over us.

  106. Since when do we accommodate other countries; you’re in America! America should not have to accommodate the many cultures in our country. Do other countries reciprocate…no! Assimilate and respect our laws and regulations…

  107. I’m just curious why this so-called religious “DEMAND” is so willingly tolerated by the American people when the owner of Chick Filet was protested against when he stated his beliefs & he actuallymade no DEMANDS whatsoever. He simply stated a personal belief. Something doesn’t seem equal here in the way America treats Muslims & the way they treat Christians.

  108. PEOPLE HERE should get hooked on phonics or concentrate on reading comprehension SHOW ME …..QUOTE ME
    WHERE I SAID WHAT YOU CLAIM
    NOWHERE DID I EVER SAY I THOUGHT SHARIA LAW SHOULD BE TOLERATED OR WOULD FALL UNDER THE PROTECTION OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT NOWHERE DIDI SAY IT SHOULD BE PRACTICED HERE OR IN ANY COUNTRY FOR THAT MATTER ….YOU PEOPLE ARE TO QUICK TO READ A POST HALF WAY BEFORE POSTING A REPLY OR NOT EVEN READING PREVIOUS POSTS TO UNDERSTAND CONTEXT OR MEANING I AM APPALLED AT HOW MANY HERE THINK A WOMAN THAT WORKS AT LOWES SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO WERE A HEAD SCARF AS AN EXPRESSION OF RELIGION GUARANTEED UNDER THE FIRST AMENDMENT ! .AND HOW THAT HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH SHARIA LAW..BECAUSE OF THAT THAT SIMPLE STATEMENT YOU ALL TRY TO TWIST IT INTO MY CAMPAIGNING FOR OR ADVOCATING OR IN SUPPORT SHARIA LAW …….WHERE …..DID I EVER SAY THAT !

  109. This isn’t Sharia Law. This is about respecting customs in their religion. None of these affect your daily life. This is allowing the scarves and caps to be worn as well as respecting their customs. None of this will interfere with your life because it’s not being forced on you. Just continue being decent human beings and not disrespecting people different from you. Carry on.

  110. While i am very much in disagreement with Sharia Law the above guidelines could almost universally applied to any religious group. It isn’t asking for us to support their religious practices, its asking us to respect the fact that they are people who follow a religion that requires certain things. It should be up to the individual business as to whether they update their corporate policy to allow for these things or not. I think this article is both a bit alarmist and somewhat discriminatory.

  111. We allow Jewish people to wear their religous headwear, so also Muslims should be allowed the same. If they want to go to prayer on Fridays for “45 to 90 minutes” thats fine, just remember to punch out first, you aren’t getting paid for it.

  112. I think this should be checked out before any rash decisions are made. If it’s the true, then let’s all boycott them. Really now days you can hear anything, check it out.

  113. I see nothing wrong in their examples as long as they allow those of different faiths the same thing. Don’t wanna work on your “Sunday” fine move people around with those who don’t care or don’t go to church. If wearing a hat or ring or necklace is a symbol of your faith fine you get to wear it. The part about using vacation time is just weird. Who cares what they do with their vacation days.

    Does HD sell beer or pork products?

    I understand that Sharia Law getting a foothold in America is a bad thing but I think this article just tries to make a mountain out of a molehill. I mean if it said Muslims get to wear their hat but Jews have to shave their beard or Christians can’t wear a cross necklace or pin I could see it.

    As long as they allow everyone the same accommodations I got no problem with it. And it is in Dearborne after all….they probably already have more Sharia Law in effect that poilcy at the Home Depot.

  114. Why should Muslims not have to sell alcohol. If they go to a business and want a job then do the job. I am tired of the US bending over for Muslims. They have a right to practice their religion and I have a right to not practice it with them. Keep it in their Mosques and homes. As far as head dress we should follow Frances lead and out law anything that hides your identity. Their religion gives them leeway on how much they wear over their head except for the extremists and they ‘re the ones that shouldn’t be allowed to cover their identity.

  115. I really do not see the problem if a person wants to wear a head scarf or hat or pray 5 times a day. Not my problem. It does not impact on anyone. In many cases immigrants come with different dress and customs. Personally I think all religious dictated outfits are a waste of time.

    What I do object to is the reaction of people wanting to impose their values and religious laws on me. I fully believe that we have to resist any form of religious based laws.

    I have a problem communicating with a woman in a full face covering like a Berka. As 80% of human communication is based on body language, understanding a person becomes problematical.

    Home Depot should have some from of training to understand the needs of their customers and 1st amendment law demands that we respect religions. Personally I would not hire a person that cannot communicate with my customers.

    The only thing about Islam that I find unacceptable is its intolerance of everyone else. The hypocritical nature of the activities and statements of many of the followers, demanding respect while not giving it to others I find offensive.

  116. I am so glad we have a local Ace. Ace is the place for my business now… I want go back to Home Depot or Lowes until they drop this bowing down to these people who hate Americans and then come over here to take away our freedoms.

  117. I don’t care about the Muslims if they want the freedoms of their religions they can go back to their country ,they do not respect our religion or our customs or women in this country. They need to leave before it is to late for us to regain our control

  118. It hasn’t been implemented as of yet and in Alabama ISLAMIZATION was shot down in the courts! It has been ruled that Islam is not protected under freedom of religion ! CAIR is a hate group that is beginning to be exposed for what it is!

  119. I hope they are also going to train them on how to be a good Christian too! If a Muslim cannot sell certain things because it us against thier religion in Home Depot then they should not be working there…I will avoid home depot now anytime it is possible!!!

  120. Wow. Where to start? First, I guess, is that this is NOT being done in reaction to “demands” made by anyone, it is only being done in Dearborn, Michigan. This city has over 40% Arab ethnicity, and I suspect that Home Depot is not the only business in Dearborn that is catering to Arab employees and businesses. NONE of what is mentioned in the post above has anything to do with Sharia law. Ms. Amy Elizabeth lists several items from CAIR’s booklet and tries to make it look like Home Depot is totally caving in to all things Arabic. Take a look at the one about selling alcoholic beverages. Ever buy a cold one at Home Depot? Quit being a mindless pot-stirrer, and start acting more like a modern American.

  121. I really do not see the problem if a person wants to wear a head scarf or hat or pray 5 times a day. Not my problem. It does not impact on anyone. In many cases immigrants come with different dress and customs. Personally I think all religious dictated outfits are a waste of time.

    The only thing about Islam that I find unacceptable is its intolerance of everyone else. The hypocritical nature of the activities and statements of many of the followers, demanding respect while not giving it to others I find offensive.

  122. A Muslim employee should not be asked to serve or sell religiously offensive products, such as alcoholic beverages. Just my humble opinion, can they sell to gay people? If not….what about the baker that refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, because it was religiously offensive to him?

  123. A Home Depot once existed very near my house. They closed it because of lack of business. The building is now empty and forgotten. This should happen to ALL Home Depot locations everywhere! Boycott their asses! I will NOT help fund an Anti-American cause.

  124. I resent Lowe’s and Home Depot Catering to Muslims and any other Sharia law crap that’s not what we do in America. If they don’t like the way we do business here and run our country, they can get the heck out of here go back to their land, those people Muslims are all religious deuce bags…… !!!!!!!

  125. As a AMERICAN woman i can not support any business that put”s the beliefs of a cult over the respect of women and children . with that said i will cancel my credit card and not shop there again ‘

  126. “A Muslim employee should not be asked to serve or sell religiously offensive products, such as alcoholic beverages”
    Then why should Christians be forced to do something religiously offensive (photograph a gay wedding, make a gay wedding cake) If Muslims aren’t supposed to be asked? What is going to happen the first time a Muslim worker at Home Depot in full garb is forced to work alongside a GLBT cross dresser!!? Who’s gonna win that fight? I guess Home Depot will have to make a choice which group they want to pander to the most at that point…. This is SERIOUSLY getting crazy!
    What every happened to coming to the American “melting pot” and becoming American!! With all the freedoms that come with it and the Constitution ruling the land?

  127. I had seriously slowed down shopping at Home Depot for other reasons, but this ended my association with that store for good. My neighbor owns a local Ace Hardware … They will now be receiving all of my business. Ridiculous.

  128. If Christians or Buddhist pulled this, they’d be laughed at. If a Christian said they couldn’t work on Sunday, they’d be told to go find a job someplace else. HOME DEPOT….spineless, gutless, lily livered cowards! And some people say CHRISTIANS ARE SHOVING THEIR RELIGION DOWN OUR THROATS. How about this one?

  129. I have been boycotting Home Depot for some years now since some workers there disrespected me and my contracting business by staying on the phone on a personal call at the contractor’s desk and ignoring my needs. They also refused to “pull” my advance order costing me a lot of time and money. I was spending anywhere from $1,000 to $5,000 a week there for building supplies. Now I have another reason to stay away.

  130. Now wait a minute! Educating it’s employers about a religious group that may shop there is not Sharia Law. Understanding a customer is important, and that person is still a customer regardless of their religious affiliation. There doesn’t have to be a war between Christians and Muslims in the shopping mall! Can’t you people shop in peace? This is the 1st time I’ve been to this site, and judging the volume of hatred in the comments section, I won’t be coming back. Good on Home Depot to widen their customer base.

  131. if they have done this they should have to put a sign in front of the stores lets see how many of the human race stays away lets boycot i would not take nothing from home depot even if it was free shove it up ypur ass home muslim

  132. Home Depots original owners would have never agreed to do this! I’m so glad I don’t work for them anymore because I would quit before I would obey those changes!

  133. Ok really people…talk about going overboard. I work at Home Depot and it’s not like that here in Texas. They try to make accommodations for everyone. This article makes it sound like they are bowing down to one religion and screw all the others. I swear people are turning into lemmings. Instead of maybe researching..they jump on the first “article” that pops up on the internet and everyone wants to boycott, which in turn could make A LOT of American workers lose their jobs. So instead of calling their local stores, to ask about policy or talk to a manager, they decide to just jump in blindly and follow the others who don’t know what their talking about.

  134. If you like the rules where you work, open your own store and leave everybody else out of it. Jewish folks where a yarmulka and their sabbath is sun down fri to sun down sat. Any one changing the rules for them. Please go to your mosque and leavethe rest of America alone.

  135. Read the CAIR document. There is nothing in there about Sharia Law – absolutely nothing! Ms. Elizabeth, the author, is spreading lies and her organization is allowiing it. In the process, she is hurting hundreds, if not thousands, of Americans who work at Home Depot – including, I imagine, many friends of yours. Use your heads, people, and check your facts before believing everything you read.

  136. We were deciding between Home Depot and Lowes for our carpet installation. Lowes guy will be coming tomorrow for measurements. Thanks for helping us decide, HD. That’s about $3,000 NOT going in your pocket.

  137. There’s a muslim CEO somewhere in upper management, fire he or she’s fucking ass, piss on Sharia, piss on allah, piss on mohammed, piss on the quaran and fuck over the muslims!

  138. I’m very tired of our government forcing We the People to feel sorry for the rest of the world. America was built on hard word ,freedom and the right to worship any religion or not. You want to live in America, fine. Become a citizen the correct way. Follow OUR laws don’t expect us to change to your beliefs and laws. If your offended by our beliefs and laws, just remember you wanted to be here. We didn’t ask you to come. Follow our rules or get the F out. As for Lowes, I spend my money where I want.

  139. To me this is just like non smokers everywhere thinking that a business owner has to conform to them instead of taking their business elsewhere that doesn’t allow smoking, why should a company have to or feel the need to make special considerations for some. If someone doesn’t like a companies dress code they shouldn’t apply there in the 1st place. If someone doesn’t like what a business allows then take your business elsewhere it is pretty simple but somehow people think it is ok to force others to conform to things that are not illegal.

  140. Dearborn Michigan is a very odd town from when I lived there. The town is an all white town except for a muslim neighborhood contained a restricted to section of Dearborn. The muslims moved freely during the day but were restricted to their neighborhood at night. If you weren’t white you do not live in Dearborn! To my knowledge that is still true today. So, why is Home Depot kissing muslim butt. Home Depot has lost my business forever.

  141. Yet it’s acceptable for Hobby Lobby to be forced to go against the owners religious beliefs….interesting the way a Democrats mind works. Anything to piss off, belittle, and destroy Conservatives and Christians.

  142. We need to wake up before its too late, if it isn’t already too late. This may sound drastic to some of you nut we need to start deporting all Muslims back to where they came from. They will never assimilate and although most would never admitt it, we are infidels and the not only deep own hate us, they want us dead. Believe it or you and your families are doomed.

  143. Yes, Lowes has just lost another customer here in my town. I think Lowes should start a program of displaying the correct operation of their Grills that are always positioned out front between the entrance and exit doors. Lighting up a few of them and grilling some good old pork chops, sausage, bacon, ham, and any other part of the pig or hog (hawg) that they can throw on the grill. If the Muslims want to take part they would be welcome. If not, they can get off the property and leave the jobs to American citizens with no outrageous demands.

  144. Why should Muslims not have to sell alcohol. If they go to a business and want a job then do the job. I am tired of the US bending over for Muslims. They have a right to practice their religion and I have a right to not practice it with them. Keep it in their Mosques and homes. As far as head dress we should follow Frances lead and out law anything that hides your identity. Their religion gives them leeway on how much they wear over their head except for the extremists and they ‘re the ones that shouldn’t be allowed to cover their identity.

  145. When all REAL Americans stop using these businesses, especially Christians, Jews and all other Religions that are persecuted by the Evil Muslims that are pushing for Sharia Law in the US, then maybe these Corps will stop this crap and start treating us the way they should! Hit them in their Pocket Books, that is the only Language they understand!

  146. If our government was TRULY, OUR government, and they know there are 5 terrorist cells in the area, then why aren’t they doing something about it? I’ll tell you why. Because the nigger, Muslim who’s been illegally quatting in the White House for the past 6 years is fully backing Sharia Law. Bastard niggers!

  147. How about awareness training for Muslims.They came here,we didn’t plead with them to come here and expect the US to cater to their friggin needs!What next,prayer mats and foot baths at Home Depot!

  148. LOST MY BUSINESS TOO! JUST SPENT 200.00 LAST WEEK! NO MORE ! DON;T NEED THEM THIS IS UNITED STATES NOT OVERSEA ‘S AND TO WHO SAY O.K. U ARE NOT AMERICAN! WE HAVE LAWS NOT THERE’S IF U DON’T LIKE OUR U GO OVER THERE AND LIVE! GET YOUR HEADS CHOPPPPPPIED OFF GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  149. Infidels do not ” accomm odate ” Islam……….they surrender to Islam…….by buying into this crap. I will not patronize an ideology that is committed to eventually beheading me.

  150. I started to read a lot of these and make comments, but I just can’t do it anymore. You guys are IDIOTS and have a terrible country where no one is allowed to believe anything that you don’t approve of first, even though you are supposed to be the land of the free you really aren’t. Why would anyone want to live in the United States. Don’t say it’s the greatest country because if these comments are a sampling or a representation of the people that live there then you leave a lot to be desired. Wonder what your black president thinks? hmmmm

  151. I worked at one of the home depots in FL and I will tell you one thing. Many of the employees at this particular store are lesbians…wonder how that will play out if and when cair get’s their grubby little hands on that store.

  152. LOL Are they going to start stocking Berka’s and headscarves for women to wear before they enter, and turn away women who are unaccompanied by a male? PC is one of the primary reasons we’ve lost this country.

  153. Come on, folks. This is done by design to incite a culture war. Lets face it. We are tribalists by nature. That is natural to the human condition. We all want our environment to be comfortable and to make sense. A world is now being built around us to confuse and confound us. Everything now from coupons to Lowe’s entrance signs are written in foreign languages (Arabic is coming next). Christianity is being brought to its knees and foreign religions and even Satanism is being allowed to flourish. We are $17T in debt but hand out money to foreign countries who are openly hostile to the Country who is providing the money. We are passing out weapons to the same enemies we are supposed to be fighting in he Middle East. Everything is upside down. And as we are infiltrated more every day, our chances of surviving the assault by the criminal government occupying the WH seem slim. Friends, you better know who you are and what you believe because the clash of cultures is coming.
    One person’s opinion.

  154. Those things alone are not offensive. I don’t have much of a problem with that. I have a very big problem when these rules are forced on the non-Muslims. Is a liquor store going to be forced to hire a muslim? If they do hire a Muslim they would have to shut down the business because it would be in conflict with Islamic laws. Muslims don’t have to work at any of these places. No one is forcing them to.

  155. You know when I called them, they informed me that the majority of the population were Muslims, & that they were trying to give good customer service, Which threw me off a loop, I asked him, “How is learning someone’s faith related to good customer service? Good customer service involves in knowing your products not ones faith. I told him how I was a sales person, worked in just about every state, never made less than $10,000 & went up to as high as $30,000 a month & I never learned anybody’s faith, I learned my merchandise, I made sure I knew just about every product I was selling & my motto was everybody that walked through those doors were ALWAYS treated with the upmost respect, wether they look like a million dollars or looked like a poor per , I respected & gave everybody the upmost courtesy, this is what makes a good sales person not understanding their faith, but understanding & knowing your products. Giving respect regardless how the customer behaves. So what this store has really done is bowed down to Islam, & to $$$$$$, that is what they have really done.

  156. I would be more inclined to accept this as credible if it didn’t contain so many grammatical and spelling errors. The “document” was very easily doctored up on Microsoft Word, a screenshot was taken, and the selected words highlighted digitally. It’s very likely that the author of this “article” also generated the document, or had somebody whose grammar and spelling abilities aren’t as severely lacking, is a disgruntled customer or former employee who was fired and wants to try bringing the company down. I don’t buy a single word of this at all. Nice try, though.

  157. I don’t get what the big deal is. We don’t patronize Jewish people or catholics or anyone else but we do it to muslims?? They want people to be educated because most people, as I’m now seeing on here,are ignorant. Not all muslims are terrorists people. Quit being so darn stupid. That’s like saying all catholics are child molestors.

  158. I’m glad I saw this, I was going there to get a ceiling fan later today. It’s the closet place to me.I’ll drive twice the distance and never step foot in these stores ever again. You can call me racist and anything you want. I say until they all admit Muhammad , was a back shooting candy ass child molesters.Kill them all and let God sort them out. God bless America.

  159. Does this mean Home Depot will be sensitive towards Christian employes and allow them to have Sunday off cause bible clearly states throughout that Sunday is the sabboth day and a day of rest and reflection and prayer.

  160. Is Home Depot going to “highlight” the part of Sharia Law where it says Muslim men can marry a female infant and consummate the marriage when she is 9-years-old? How about the part in Sharia Law that says Muslim men cannot be prosecuted for rape unless there were 4-5 male witnesses present? Why are they not putting in their memo the number of Christians that have been beheaded and hung by Muslim terrorists in the past two-years? What’s next, prayer rugs being laid out at noontime in the carpet and flooring section? The Muslim religion treats their women and children like dogs, but Home Depot thinks we should respect that. Why don’t they just hang the Boco Haram sign at their entrance doors?

  161. Since when do we accommodate other countries; you’re in America! America should not have to accommodate the many cultures in our country. Do other countries reciprocate…no! Assimilate and respect our laws and regulations…

  162. I’m all done with Home Depot! Period! Lowes is now the place to go! I don’t need anyone from Home Depot to influence me about Islam. We already know that Islam hates Christians and this phony sensitivity training for the employes only brings more Muslim BS into the stores. Next thing you know my wife will have to wear a nijab upon entering the store!

  163. I am all for religious freedom, as long as other religious people, catholics, Jews and christens are afforded the same exemptions, clothing accommodations and vacation time. What is good for one should be the same for all. If not, then that is a major problem.

  164. Hate shopping at HD anyway, the latest assault on the American constitution and way of life. This really should come as no surprise. Michigan has the largest population of cult followers(islam) in America. Plus its the only place in America that u push 1-for English, 2- for spanish and 3- for arabic. to access government services.
    HAD ENOUGH YET?

  165. Dearborn Michigan is a very odd town from when I lived there. The town is an all white town except for a muslim neighborhood contained a restricted to section of Dearborn. The muslims moved freely during the day but were restricted to their neighborhood at night. If you weren’t white you do not live in Dearborn! To my knowledge that is still true today. So, why is Home Depot kissing muslim butt. Home Depot has lost my business forever.

  167. Why are we even allowing these people onto our land, much less providing support to most of them? America is full now and we don’t need any more especially people that have not evolved.

  168. I agree with Gerald Tietz. Our country was founded on religious freedom. It does not apply to just Christians, Jews or Catholics. It applies to all religions. The Muslim faith requires a certain mode of dress and worship. They are just trying to insure that their followers will be able to observe these in a working environment. The intolerance that most of you are showing is how the problems begin.

  169. “Home Depot Rolls Out The Red Carpet For Sharia Law” – reads the Republican Website telling us that sensitivity training of Employees for Muslim Customers at 1 Home Depot Store equals teaching Sharia Law to unsuspecting White Christians who are just in fresh from the Killing Fields of Afghanistan with Muslim Blood on their hands. Sure. At least wash the Muslim Blood off your hands before serving Muslim Customers. Come in the front door a bloodsucking Christian, go out a devoted Gentle Muslim, sure see it all the time.

  170. This isn’t Sharia Law. This is about respecting customs in their religion. None of these affect your daily life. This is allowing the scarves and caps to be worn as well as respecting their customs. None of this will interfere with your life because it’s not being forced on you. Just continue being decent human beings and not disrespecting people different from you. Carry on.

  171. While Home Depot in Dearborn s succumbing to being located n the greatest concentration of Muss in North America as a corporation it has an excellent reputation as an employer of vets, long before there were calls to do so.

  172. home depot, I will never shop at your store again … its time to chase muslims out of this country … I can’t believe that as a country, we have allowed them to take over Dearborn …

  173. Muslims and their Islamic cult, and Sheria law TRUELY offends me ! Why, if Muslims can’t tolerate me and my beliefs, should I tolerate there beliefs! Go back to your own country where you can believe in your own crap!

  174. You people are fucked. This is not Sharia Law. There are a lot of Muslims in Michigan. You have the same right to exercise your freedom to worship on Sunday and your job has to comply.

  175. If Christians or Buddhist pulled this, they’d be laughed at. If a Christian said they couldn’t work on Sunday, they’d be told to go find a job someplace else. HOME DEPOT….spineless, gutless, lily livered cowards! And some people say CHRISTIANS ARE SHOVING THEIR RELIGION DOWN OUR THROATS. How about this one?

  176. Hobby Lobby is fighting having to pay for contraception and yet the Muslims don’t have to serve or sell anything religious? Who is winning this war? Certainly not Americans.

  177. First dept stores then restaurants, schools,hospitals. Then the muslims will start enforcing their insane laws on neighborhoods, closing our churches. It is too much. They should respect our existing laws or go home to where they come from.

  178. I notice that CAIR hasn’t said anything about Boko Haram. it is the inactions of the so called peaceful muslims that speak much louder than the actions of the so called radical ones. They are all evil and can’t be trusted.

  179. LOST MY BUSINESS TOO! JUST SPENT 200.00 LAST WEEK! NO MORE ! DON;T NEED THEM THIS IS UNITED STATES NOT OVERSEA ‘S AND TO WHO SAY O.K. U ARE NOT AMERICAN! WE HAVE LAWS NOT THERE’S IF U DON’T LIKE OUR U GO OVER THERE AND LIVE! GET YOUR HEADS CHOPPPPPPIED OFF GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  180. I have been boycotting Home Depot for some years now since some workers there disrespected me and my contracting business by staying on the phone on a personal call at the contractor’s desk and ignoring my needs. They also refused to “pull” my advance order costing me a lot of time and money. I was spending anywhere from $1,000 to $5,000 a week there for building supplies. Now I have another reason to stay away.

  181. I really do not see the problem if a person wants to wear a head scarf or hat or pray 5 times a day. Not my problem. It does not impact on anyone. In many cases immigrants come with different dress and customs. Personally I think all religious dictated outfits are a waste of time.

    What I do object to is the reaction of people wanting to impose their values and religious laws on me. I fully believe that we have to resist any form of religious based laws.

    I have a problem communicating with a woman in a full face covering like a Berka. As 80% of human communication is based on body language, understanding a person becomes problematical.

    Home Depot should have some from of training to understand the needs of their customers and 1st amendment law demands that we respect religions. Personally I would not hire a person that cannot communicate with my customers.

    The only thing about Islam that I find unacceptable is its intolerance of everyone else. The hypocritical nature of the activities and statements of many of the followers, demanding respect while not giving it to others I find offensive.

  182. Seems like most of the people commenting don’t understand how the world really works. Sure HD put out a pamphlet describing all of the special treatment Muslims should be given, and the’re going to give classes on all of the special needs of Muslims. And having been trained and educated to how much trouble Muslim employees will be because of the special treatment they demand, HD managers will be less likely to hire anyone who might be a Muslim.

  183. Do they (chair) care about my religious rituals, no they don’t, and I don’t care about theirs. Any business that wants to offend me with any type of religious practices I will take my money and spent it elsewhere.

  184. I’m glad I saw this, I was going there to get a ceiling fan later today. It’s the closet place to me.I’ll drive twice the distance and never step foot in these stores ever again. You can call me racist and anything you want. I say until they all admit Muhammad , was a back shooting candy ass child molesters.Kill them all and let God sort them out. God bless America.

  185. I’m very tired of our government forcing We the People to feel sorry for the rest of the world. America was built on hard word ,freedom and the right to worship any religion or not. You want to live in America, fine. Become a citizen the correct way. Follow OUR laws don’t expect us to change to your beliefs and laws. If your offended by our beliefs and laws, just remember you wanted to be here. We didn’t ask you to come. Follow our rules or get the F out. As for Lowes, I spend my money where I want.

  186. People in this thread probably cheered when Christian “ideology” were thrust upon workers in Hobby Lobby. (Oh and the fact that they ‘allowed’ certain ones and not others doesn’t make them look good either.)

    Those same people are now bitching over the fact that Muslims can wear their own clothing.

    The hypocrisy is amazing! I am a Jew and have been to the Middle East and -gasp- I didn’t get blown up or killed! Learn to go outside of your country and see the world. Get educated and maybe you won’t look so ignorant on the internet.

    (Islam is also a religion, just had to add that.)

  187. You people are fucked. This is not Sharia Law. There are a lot of Muslims in Michigan. You have the same right to exercise your freedom to worship on Sunday and your job has to comply.

  188. Well , I am waiting for Wal mart to follow! This is getting out of control? It feels like this is not the AMERICA I was born in and our ford fathers fraught for…. If they keep this up the need to follow my religious beliefs not to be open on Sundays!!!

  189. OK Home Depot….you are joining the Anti Freedom forces in America and we will see that this goes viral! I will not set foot in another one of your stores again!

  190. There are so many uninformed opinions being expressed on this topic. An employer must respect sincere and meaningful religious beliefs. To respect them, one has to understand them. At no point does this require one to believe in another’s beliefs. An employer does not have to accommodate an employee’s religious beliefs or practices if doing so would cause undue hardship to the employer. I do not see how time for prayer, or the wearing of a skull cap or other head covering will really effect a Home Depot employee’s performance, or hinder Home Depot. Even the Pope encourages mutual respect. You show nothing but hatred and ignorance boycotting a business that decides to learn more how to show respect for all its employees and customers.

    • .. not being able to sell certain items does effect an employees performance. Why should I have to go and get a different employee every time a customer wants.., bacon or some other item they are not ‘ allowed’ to handle.. ? ( this is not only inefficient, but wastes the customers time…)

    • sincere and meaningful ? you obviously have not read the rantings of the vile child molester MOHO. The koran is toilet paper.

  191. If one can’t preform the duties of the job they hold, they are not employable regardless of cult affiliation. America is not ruled by sharia law nor is it obliged to conform to it, respect it or acknowledge it. If this is offensive to anyone then your in the wrong country. As an American I find it offensive that it is even considered. I have studied many religions and islam is nothing less then a cult of evil immersed in deception and subjugation. So if Home Depot is looking to go the way of Home Quarters, then this is a good first step.
