Tyson Foods, Inc. (NYSE: TSN) is an American multinational corporation based in Springdale, Arkansas, that operates in the food industry. The company is the world’s largest processor and marketer of chicken, beef, and pork.

Now, in my opinion, they are selling BS. Read below this company’s latest slap in the face to American Christians.

Has anyone noticed since our Nations tragedy of 9/11/01 that America’s politicians and major corporations seem to be kissing a LOT of Islamic extremist behind? Has anyone questioned why our country is showing its fear of these radical groups? Is not one of the reasons we are at War, and our Troops are sacrificing their lives and bodies, to preserve and insure our own rights and freedoms? Instead, we are becoming more Islam friendly by building separate prayer rooms, foot baths, changing national holidays, etc. I don’t believe that Christians, Jews or atheist would get this kind of special consideration. WHY? Are we that afraid of them?

Tyson Foods has decided since 250 of their just over 1200 employees are Muslim, they will allow them the PAID holiday of Eid al-Fitr, a celebration at the end of their religious holiday, Ramaden. NO PAID LABOR DAY. Let’s see … paid Muslim religious holiday, or paid all American Federal holiday … oh my, what to do???

Yesterday, Tyson Foods released the following statement:

Springdale, Arkansas – August 4, 2008 – Contrary to recent reports, Labor Day is still a holiday at Tyson Foods. This issue concerns only the plant at Shelbyville, TN. The majority of employees at the Tyson plant in Shelbyville, TN, are represented by the Retail, Wholesale and Department Stores Union (RWDSU), an American union that asked for and received Eid al-Fitr, as one of their eight paid holidays, in place of Labor Day. This applies only to the Shelbyville plant and resulted as part of the union contract negotiated last fall. This change does not apply to Tyson Foods’ other 118 plants. This is not a religious accommodation, rather, it is part of a union-initiated contract demand.

Its my belief that Tyson is setting a troubling precedent. The statement is clear that they are giving in to union demands to recognize an Islamic holiday as an alternative to an American holiday. That leaves one to wonder if that kind of accommodation will be made for every religion with a strong enough influence on their unions to make similar demands. It begs the question, where does it end? If it were one workplace that would be one thing, but there has been an increasing pattern of these types of accommodations throughout the country in work places and schools.

While outrage is mounting at the moment, the bottom line is this will likely blow over. Tyson supplies McDonald’s, Burger King and so many other places that American consumers enjoy, that a boycott effort would be futile.

Since 9/11, every Christian holiday has been subjected to *recall*, and intimidation. Time after time, our Christian citizens are hauled in to court to defend their right to have a religious symbol present during OUR holiday. Separation of Church and State has become the mantra of every liberal out there …. even the so called Christian liberals … ooops, that’s an oxymoron. Meanwhile, we are building foot baths in airports so Muslims can have clean feet when they pray.

It’s not that far a leap from a paid Muslim religious holiday to Sharia law and accepting honor killings. Just look how far our country has regressed since that horrific day in 2001. What’s next? We have never been known as a nation of cowards, but I think that’s in our not too distant future.
