Muslim Flight Attendant Refuses To Serve Alcohol

Charee Stanley is a recent convert to Islam who is a flight attendant for the airline Express Jet. She objects to serving alcohol for religious reasons, which caused her to ultimately lose her job. Stanley is now taking her case to the courts.

Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down.

"A Muslim flight attendant for ExpressJet is fighting to be reinstated after she says the airline suspended her for refusing to serve alcohol.

In a complaint filed last week with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Charee Stanley said the carrier had revoked a reasonable arrangement made to accommodate her religious beliefs.

Stanley's lawyer, Lena Masri of the Council on American-Islamic Relations' Michigan chapter, told The Huffington Post Monday that Stanley approached her superiors in June about how she could avoid serving alcohol to passengers because she recently discovered that Islamic law forbids it.”*
