I've quoted from this link below;

 

 

https://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Society/2016/0525/Are-employers-required-to-grant-prayer-breaks-to-Muslim-employees

 

Basically if Mulsims can have a prayer- break to allegedly pray to Mecca so many times a day then maybe Thelemites who want to take a break to perform RESH may be bale to claim discrimination if that is not granted?  What are your views on this? 

Read for more if ye will;

 

 

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) filed a religious discrimination complaint on Tuesday, in an ongoing debate over prayer breaks between a Wisconsin manufacturing company and Muslim workers. 

Ariens Co., which manufactures snow blowers and lawnmowers at a plant outside Green Bay, Wis., fired seven of its Muslim employees in January, and another 14 resigned, after the company told Muslim workers they should stop taking an extra break for prayer, Laura Putre reported for Industry Week.

The prayer break dispute has reached its fifth month without resolution and highlights the challenges of balancing religious accommodation with work schedules, especially in a multicultural setting. 

The company had hired the workers, Somali immigrants from Green Bay, several months earlier and accommodated them with both prayer rooms and a bus service to help with the 40-minute commute. A dispute arose in January after the non-Muslim workers complained the Somali workers were taking extra breaks for prayer time, sometimes without communicating with supervisors. The company told workers to stick to two 10-minute breaks, and 53 workers walked off the job in protest. 

Muslim beliefs require five daily prayers, spaced throughout the day, and many Muslims adjust their prayer times to accommodate work, school, or travel. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) requires employers to accommodate a religious practice such as prayer unless it causes the company “undue hardship" by decreasing “workplace efficiency." 

"Unless they can prove 'undue hardship,' and that is definitely what is at the heart of the matter," then the policy change is illegal," Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR's national communications director told The Christian Science Monitor in January. "What one company thinks is an undue hardship is not actually. It is always a matter of debate and compromise."

The company hired translators to help navigate the cultural and linguistic barriers in the prayer-break dispute. The workers offered to take their third break without pay, but the company was concerned about the cost of work stoppages. 

 

"My advice to any employer is before you take an action ... see if there’s a way to work it out without escalating the situation. Because a lot of the time, usually a consensus can be reached," Susan Warner, an employment attorney with Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough, told Industry Week. “My impression is that [Ariens] does value these employees, and this [breakdown in communication] may be a cultural thing."

I do it sometimes in my office/temple-  sometimes in my head.

 

I dont need a break to 'let me do it'

 

As Crowley did it randomly in a bus, I also do it randomly while driving to work, on the latrine, or sitting in an office.

 

The point is not a 'look at me' orthodox moment like some Muslims on their rugs, its more of a mental and spiritual recognition of where the Sun is in his orbit.

When I did this religiously, and I did, in a religious manner, routinely, a midnight by god, I was operating in an arcane society outer order, so you know, everybody did the same thing. It was not enforced, nor required. It was recommended, and nobody kept accounts of who did what.

Personally, speaking from my point of view, today, one day after my 81st birthday, which proves all people do not automatically die on their 81st, I would say religion and the State (including a PAID workplace) should not be mixed, and nobody should get any free time off to pay respects to Allah, Ra, Kephera (on the night shift), Jehovah, Jesus, or The Great Beast.

God created Sunday for the Gentiles and Saturday for the Jews and the Crack of every Dawn for the hard-working Communist People. Religious days or times have already been set aside.

I could say more, but I'm on a tight schedule ...

So why can't the others who do such religious practices do that also?  Why the special treatment?

A very good question. See special interests and political (religious) correctness, for some reason. Probably fear or money.

Hello friend; it also seems like someone else has been doing the work.

 

Even if I slip in sometimes doing my major rituals or meditation, RESH is the one thing that is always there and confirms me with the Current.

 

It's all mental. 

 

Sounds silly to those on the outside but that's how it is. 

 

As AC said himself in paraphrase, you are your own temple.  Whether you are in the forest, the bus or or the basement, your tools are your hands and your weapons are your mind.  

 

Greetings on all points of the star and I hope Eire is treating you well.

Best,

 

Chris

PS to say my best rituals lately have been random astral workings late at night when I wake from sleep.

You should be asking a Muslim why he can't do that also.

I am not here to dictate or suggest what Muslims should or should not do?

Thank you for the kind words Chris. 

Yeah, my personal work has been ongoing, inbetween my self imposed silence on these forums and now.

It has developed into other areas of self exploration and unveiling. Plant medicines, cold water therapy and others.

The mind is always in flux but can be trained to be more robust and form new neural pathways, previously unused in order to be more focused, have better decision making, clarity, compassion and greater ability to show love. Love is the Law after all and many forget that!

The likes of mentally conducting rituals or Resh could be a massive advantage that we have over other religions, who solely employ physically based forms of worship.

 "Let my servants be few & secret: they shall rule the many & the known."

Eire is treating me very well, I am closer to the land now, than I could have ever imagined.

Imagine if people in European/American workplaces started to ask that?

All shortcuts are cheating compared to the previous version. When you get to the cheat whereby you attain instant illumination ("lit from within"), let us know, so we can try it out to see if it's safe.
