An orthodox Jewish detective has won his suit to wear his beard at work, based on religious belief. So, a Ratsfarian at Metro should be allowed to smoke pot at work? Native Americans should be allowed to use peyote on the job? ReviewJournal.com - News - ORTHODOX JEW: Judge: Detective's beard OK

Beards are entirely different from marijuana or peyote. Whats the matter, Sheriff? Do you have something against beards or Jewish people? I have a bushy beard, so you must hate me. BTW, for the record, I'm Catholic.

I dont have a problem with him wanting a beard. My problem is he knew the rules before he took the job and now he wants to change them. On the other hand he had the beard for quite some time and just now Metro decides they dont like it?

An Orthadox Jew as a cop? Now I have heard it all. First time for everything huh.

Anyone want to know the ending to this drama? Let me ruin the movie ending for you. Metro will stick to their guns (no pun) and the bearded cop will sue for millions. We the peons, oops I mean tax payers will pay the bearded guy off in his lawsuit payout. He will retire early a very wealthy guy.

Now........lets get back to the ten ton tub of sh** Halverson. I hear she wants her feet rubbed by us poor people.

What's wrong with an Orthodox Jew being a cop? Only problem I see is Metro giving him the Sabbath (Friday, for him) off, and a yarmulke in Metro colors.

Now, I agree with you on Halverson, for the most part. She's a flaming piece of fecal matter, no matter what size she she is.

This case was a "First Amendment" issue. A belief one has to answer to a "higher power". How can anyone deem the practices of one group more valid than anothers'? A simple note from any quack MD can assure one can wear a beard, smoke pot, be certified as handicapped, or just about anything else.

He is currently working in "quality assurance", probably a Mon-Fri, 9-5 office job. Wouldn't his day of sabbath be from sundown Friday, to mid-evening Saturday night? And, for some reason, he is quoted as saying, he would be just as happy to wear a baseball cap as a yarmulke. Even strip clubs in LV hold their patrons to a higher dress code.

Is there some type of certification, or validation to determine one's religious status?

I had better contact the ACLU, as a long time Satanist, in my recent interview with Metro, I was told my horns and pitchfork were the sole reason I was not hired.
