    This is about a decision made by the Tyson Foods plant in Middle Tennessee town of Shelbyville TN (county seat of Bedford County):

    Quote from the article: "Tyson company spokeswoman Libby Lawson said by phone that, 'This isn't a religious accommodation, this is a contractual agreement. The majority asked for it.'"

    That's an important detail.

    It sure is. That little detail is exactly the tactic that Muslims are using to take over control of seats in Western European representative governments. Then when they get enough votes (due to immagration and having larger families then Western Europeans) they will go for making Islamic Law the law of the land.

    Contractual agreement? Tyson has a union contract and this is a negotiated benefit?

    They have the right to choose which holidays they want.

    I also have the right to choose which company I buy my chicken from.

    My money will no longer go to support Tyson.

    This is only the beginning.

    I'm afraid there will be a lot of places I will stop supporting.

    Maybe Revelation refers to this when it says "you will no longer be able to buy"... :laugh:

    Is it also evil for Jews to want time off for their holy days?
