Eugene Volokh takes Larry Pratt’s other venture, English First, to task for berating Tyson foods for accomodating its Muslim workers by offering certain Muslim holidays off:
Not all religious beliefs, of course, have been accommodated, and not all should be accommodated. But requests from minority religious groups (including recent immigrant groups) for accommodation are a longstanding and respectable part of the American tradition of religious freedom. Where religious pluralism goes, multiculturalism is indeed a traditional American value. And the union vote at the Tyson plan is not “multiculturalism run amok” — it’s the American tradition of religious tolerance and religious accommodation working as it should be.
