Home Depot trains employees on “sensitivities” to Islam

Home DepotDo you know of any American business bending over backwards to please Christians?

No?

Despite the fact that nearly 8 out of every 10 Americans are Christian?

In fact, these days we are more likely to find Americans businesses that do their best to offend Christians.

According to a website on Islam in Europe and North America, estimates of the percentage of Americans who are Muslim vary:

  • A 2007 survey by Pew Research Center places the figure at 0.6%.
  • Preceding surveys fall somewhere below that estimate: Baylor (2006) at 0.2%; Pew (2000-2007) at 0.5%; General Social Surveys (1998-2006) at 0.5%; Gallup (1999-2001) at 0.3%; American Religious Identification Surveys (2001) at 0.5%; and the National Election Study (2000) at 0.2%.
  • Not surprisingly, estimates by Muslim American groups are higher:
  • 1.5% (or 4.7 million), according to the 2005 Britannica Book of the Year.
  • 2.1% (or 6.7 million), according to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the premier Muslim-American “civil rights” organization in the United States which the FBI had identified to have ties to terrorists. In 2007, U.S. federal prosecutors named CAIR as an unindicted co-conspirator in funding the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas.

Even if we take the most generous estimate, CAIR’s, that still puts Muslims at 2.1% of the total U.S. population, which is miniscule when compared to the number and percentage of U.S. Christians. According to the American Religious Identification Survey (ARIS) (2008), the majority of U.S. adults — 76% — identified themselves as Christians.

And yet, the 2% of Americans who are Muslims manage to wield grossly disproportionate power and influence.

Amy Elizabeth reports for GOPTheDailyDose that on March 19, 2014, a Home Depot in Dearborn, Michigan, succumbed to the demands of CAIR and subjected its employees to “cultural awareness training” in order to accommodate the “religious sensitivities” of Muslim employees and customers,” and to “help corporate managers gain a better understanding of Muslims and Islam.”

Not just in Dearborn. CAIR Michigan says it also “has provided similar trainings in the past to other Home Depot locations in southeastern Michigan.”

CAIR MichiganCAIR even has a 19-page An Employer’s Guide to Islamic Religious Practices, with demands that are 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 Muslim head scarves and skullcaps.
  • A Muslim employee should not be asked to serve or sell religiously offensive products, such as alcoholic beverages.

Amy Elizabeth points out these so-called Muslim “accommodations” are nothing more than forcing American businesses to comply with Islam’s sharia law, which is antithetical to the U.S. Constitution and U.S. laws.

Elizabeth rightly asks: In a world where Christians are being slaughtered by Muslims, how can any American, let alone an American corporation like Home Depot, bend over backward to accommodate the enemy?

  1. It’s too complicated for me as an employer; better off not to hire them at all.

    I would NEVER hire a muslim. But because of the prevailing betrayal by our own government, I would also NEVER admit my reason. Call it a crime. Call it a sin. I don’t care. Every man or woman on earth who wants to be free is at war with that genocidal religion. As long as jihad is the rule of the day, laws and courts will have no power to sway my choices.

     
  3. Wow – this is truly bad news – please download information about Sharia law!

     
  4. Son of the Rabbit People

    Homosexuals comprise around 2% of the population and you can see how businesses are being forced to kowtow to them.

     
  5. Good to know, my shopping days at Home Depot are finished. I won’t step foot in their doors anymore. I will hold that position until the Muslims hold Christian sensitivity training in their mosques, businesses and home countries.

     
    • I’m with you on this one! We left HD for Lowe’s a couple years ago when Lowe’s refused to back down on a muslim issue – when they pulled their ads from “All American muslim.” At the time we did it to support Lowe’s for taking the position that they did. Now, wanting a specific Husky ladder – only sold at HD, I will be finding a different ladder – no HD for anything!

      Oh, and don’t be holding your breath waiting for muslims to be even acknowledging Christians. We spent from 2002 to 2010 living in saudi. Not a single Church there. I believe that NOT a single mosque should be allowed here until a Church is allowed there!!!

       
  6. It’s probably high time that “we” (everyone that is opposed to Sharia law in this land) contact Home Depot, and tell them that this special handling of Muslim employees, and shoppers, over Christian employees and shoppers is not acceptable–thus I won’t be patronizing your facilities anymore. Lowe’s–here I come!

    I suggest a name change for the company.

    Home Depot will now be called Home Despot

  8. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this informative post. We stopped shopping at Home Depot years ago because of their anti-Christian stance with regard to celebrating Christmas. We shop at Lowe’s. Home Despot is on the American Family Association’s black list.

    I have never heard of an employer changing their dress code because of someone’s religion. Ridiculous! Lukewarm idiots!

     
  9. Part of the Obama Muslim agenda!

     
  10. Thank you, Doctor, for your work for defense of Christianity and our way of life under the Constitution. We must live for the cross and our country, for we face an enemy who wants to destroy both. Too many Christians are lukewarm! If only lovers of the Kardashian lifestyle, Mammon, etc., would wake up!

     
  11. Home Depot has obviously decided to become part of The Gigantic Left Wing Freak Show!

     
  12. Helpful hints: 1. Be sure to ask if the wall the customer will be building is load-bearing or going to topple over upon homosexuals (construction will differ), 2. Ask if the hole being dug for stoning is for a man or woman (that could mean the difference in recommending a post-hole digger or a small backhoe). It pays to be culturally sensitive, you know!

     
  13. I was force-trained in” Muslim Religious Senstivities” and became culturally aware of the Muslim world and it’s core beliefs on 9/11/01. My learning curve was steep, but swift. Since then, like others, I’ve been subjected to non-stop yammering from these 2-percenters, without apologies, without US Muslim leadership stepping forward to confront and challenge the virtual, literal, psychological,social, and governmental beatings their religious cult visits upon non-Muslims here and world-wide. Unfortunately, some of the blame for this I can lay at the feet of our weak, ineffectual, Muslim-patsy POTUS. Muslim is as Muslim does.

     
  14. Reblogged this on The Lynler Report and commented:
    When I worked at Home Depot, the training room was off-limits when a muslim employee was using it to pray in. This room was where ALL communication to and from employees was communicated on the employee/store computers. But we couldn’t use them at that time. No where a Christian could pray like that. We couldn’t say Christmas party, we had to say “winter party…….Home Depot is so politically correct, it make a conservative vomit……….
