You have a SIGNIFICANT misunderestimation of Islam and Kafirs.
The only provable bigotry involved in this matter is the bigotry demonstrated and ordered by the Koran, Sira and Hadith.

These figures are a rough estimate of the death of non-Muslims by the political act of jihad.
Thomas Sowell [Thomas Sowell, Race and Culture, BasicBooks, 1994, p. 188] estimates that 11 million slaves were shipped across the Atlantic and 14 million were sent to the Islamic nations of North Africa and the Middle East. For every slave captured many others died. Estimates of this collateral damage vary. The renowned missionary David Livingstone estimated that for every slave who reached a plantation, five others were killed in the initial raid or died of illness and privation on the forced march.[Woman’s Presbyterian Board of Missions, David Livingstone, p. 62, 1888] Those who were left behind were the very young, the weak, the sick and the old. These soon died since the main providers had been killed or enslaved. So, for 25 million slaves delivered to the market, we have an estimated death of about 120 million people. Islam ran the wholesale slave trade in Africa.
120 million Africans
The number of Christians martyred by Islam is 9 million [David B. Barrett, Todd M. Johnson, World Christian Trends AD 30-AD 2200, William Carey Library, 2001, p. 230, table 4-10] . A rough estimate by Raphael Moore in History of Asia Minor is that another 50 million died in wars by jihad. So counting the million African Christians killed in the 20th century we have:
60 million Christians

Thanks for proving my point that the motivation was probably to pander to bigots.
Sorry, but I have seen the evil passages in the Bible, know enough about Christian's (and other religions) history of atrocities, have actually gotten to know some Muslims, and have been to a Muslim nation to believe all or most of the two billion Muslims are uniquely evil. Besides, I have heard the same BS about Jews, socialists, Asians and blacks to believe that crap.

http://www.debatepolitics.com/religi...post1064684160 (How can we NOT recognize the bigotry of this religion?)
And here is an hors-d’œuvre:
64% of the Koran deals with the Kafir, the unbeliever.
The Sira, 81%.
And the Hadith: 37% is devoted to Kafirs who are filthy, to be deceived, beheaded, crucified, plotted against, terrorized, humiliated.
Every act of jihad is to eliminate the Kafir.

Check out the following from The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission:
For all of you who are Religious Freedom Restoration Act fans...HERE YA GO! You're government has got your back. For those who aren't. Well...... Personally I'm no fan of any RFRA's. But that's just me.Religious Garb and Grooming in the Workplace: Rights and Responsibilities
This publication by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) answers questions about how federal employment discrimination law applies to religious dress and grooming practices, and what steps employers can take to meet their legal responsibilities in this area.
Examples of religious dress and grooming practices include wearing religious clothing or articles (e.g., a Muslim hijab (headscarf), a Sikh turban, or a Christian cross); observing a religious prohibition against wearing certain garments (e.g., a Muslim, Pentecostal Christian, or Orthodox Jewish woman's practice of not wearing pants or short skirts), or adhering to shaving or hair length observances (e.g., Sikh uncut hair and beard, Rastafarian dreadlocks, or Jewish peyes (sidelocks)).
In most instances, employers are required by federal law to make exceptions to their usual rules or preferences to permit applicants and employees to observe religious dress and grooming practices.
1. What is the federal law relating to religious dress and grooming in the workplace?
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e, et seq., as amended ("Title VII"),prohibits employers with at least 15 employees (including private sector, state, and local government employers), as well as employment agencies, unions, and federal government agencies, from discriminating in employment based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
It also prohibits retaliation against persons who complain of discrimination or participate in an EEO investigation. With respect to religion, Title VII prohibits among other things:
disparate treatment based on religion in recruitment, hiring, promotion, benefits, training, job duties, termination, or any other aspect of employment (except that "religious organizations" as defined under Title VII are permitted to prefer members of their own religion in deciding whom to employ);
denial of reasonable accommodation for sincerely held religious practices, unless the accommodation would cause an undue hardship for the employer;
workplace or job segregation based on religion;
workplace harassment based on religion;
retaliation for requesting an accommodation (whether or not granted), for filing a discrimination charge with the EEOC, for testifying, assisting, or participating in any manner in an EEOC investigation or EEO proceeding, or for opposing discrimination.
There may be state or local laws in your jurisdiction that have protections that are parallel to or broader than those in Title VII.
Religious Garb and Grooming in the Workplace: Rights and Responsibilities
And it's already part of A&F's dress policy that religious issues can be accommodated.
Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.
"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free."
"When we live authentically we create an opportunity for others to walk out of their dark prisons of pretend into freedom."
