    ::: Supreme Court Holds 8-1 for Religious Liberty :::

    (CNN)The Supreme Court ruled in favor of a Muslim woman who has sued retailer Abercrombie & Fitch when the store failed to hire her because she wore a head scarf in observance of her religion.

    The court ruled 8-1 that the company failed to accommodate Samantha Elauf's religious needs when she was not hired on the basis that her hijab violated company dress policy. Justice Clarence Thomas dissented with part of the ruling but concurred with the rest.

    Abercrombie & Fitch argued that Elauf couldn't succeed without first showing that the employer had "actual knowledge" of her need for a religious accommodation. But the Court disagreed, and sent the case back down to the lower court for further consideration.

    If it is going to be religious freedom...then it should be religious freedom for all.

    Strange, none of the "deeply Religious" persecuted for their religion folks are bothering to notice this thread.

    Strange, when the Muslim pastry shop refused to bake a wedding cake for a homosexual, not one here seemed upset.
