Man demands image of woman wearing hijab be removed as it is “religious clothing” and should not be on display on public property.

An Oklahoma man is demanding that a “religious” image of a woman wearing a hijab be removed from a library vehicle because it promotes Islam on public property.

“I see a public vehicle that is paid for by the taxpayer’s money that displays, has a picture of a lady in Islamic attire,” Chad Grensky told KFOR.

Grensky says that the hijab represents the Muslim faith and wants it removed.

He says that his complaint has nothing to do with Islam or being against any peaceful religion and says he is not racist.

“What I have a problem with is we can’t put a nun on the side of that car because she’s wearing a head garment,” Grensky said. “We have to remove ‘In God We Trust’ from our police cars.”

Grensky took his complaint to the Pioneer Library System, where they were surprised because they never had a complaint like this before.

The library system has images of various people of different ages and races posing with a book with the words “good things coming my way” on their vehicles.

“We don’t believe that image is promoting a religion. We think it is expressing a culture,” said Anne Masters, the executive director, to KFOR.

The Oklahoma Supreme Court asked for the removal of a monument of the 10 Commandments on Oklahoma state capitol grounds because it violated the state’s constitution that bans the promotion of religion on public property.

    I wonder if the champion of “separation of church & state”, the ACLU, will jump into the fray and help this guy out?

    I’m not, Steamboat. I was being sarcastic!

    Me, too! Just jokin’ at the ACLU’s expense. No offense intended.

    Steamboat, I’m not offended.

    Matter of fact I’m one of those rare people who laughs all the harder the more I’m taking incoming.

    Have a great Labor day weekend! 🙂

    This is the danger of political correctness and multiculturalism. Sooner or later,
    it comes back around and bites the wrong people on the ass. And sooner or later,
    it will constrain the paragons of moral virtue on the left, as well as their “Chosen
    People.” In the end, it will resemble what Frank Zappa called the concept of
    “Total Criminalization,” which in the end may be the exact goal of the contemporary
    left.

    The idea is that if everything is against the law, everyone will be a criminal. This
    could be used by the government to justify any act of oppression against the
    people. Once every citizen is tainted with this sin, they are much more easily
    knocked off by the government.

    This will be an interesting one to follow. That woman is no different than a nun and we all know the ACLU would pitch a fit if it was a nun on the bus.
