    A Texas health clinic operator says it regrets telling a Muslim doctor applying for a job that she couldn't wear her traditional headscarf.

    Coppell, Texas-based CareNow called the ban a misunderstanding. It said in a statement it plans to clarify its policy and continue training current workers to prevent confusion in the future.

    Dr. Hena Zaki of Plano says she was shocked when CareNow officials told her last month in person and later by e-mail that a no-hat policy extended to her hijab.

    The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations wrote to CareNow, explaining federal law requires employers to reasonably accommodate religious practices of an employee.

    no hat policy is not a no scarf policy.

    It should be.

    I wouldn't let that woman anywhere near me or my family with a hijab on.

    But that's just me....

    Why?

    Would you be afraid of her?

    I don't mind as long as it's not some gaudy color or style. And if the woman is unattractive, I'd recommend the following:

    Who said I'm afraid? I didn't.

    I said I wouldn't let her anywhere near me with a hijab on.

    She wants to worship a Pedophile child molester, fine. Do it on HER time. Not my time.

    When she's the "Doctor", the focus is on ME and MY issues, not her false hate-filled "prophet" Big-Mo or her stupid ass "religion".

    'Nuff said.

    ahhh.. so it's a religious hatred thing. I'm betting you'd act less cavalier if your kid were choking and a muslim doctor were your only option.

    then again, knowing how batshit crazy christians are you might just let your progeny die just to make a point about your hatred of islam.

    So I'm going to assume this will extend to all of the medical advancements that the Muslims invented or helped invented? Hell, the father of Algebra is a Muslim. Looks like you can't do math either unless you want to do that math (or anything beyond it) and use the medical advancements of people who "worship a Pedophile child molester."

    I don't see any reason to be concerned about women wearing the head scarf. Obvious exceptions would be something like a driver's license or other identification where it is necessary to demonstrate that the person in a photo is the person carrying in the card, but that's just a practical reality. Apart from that I don't see why anyone should be concerned whether someone else decides to wear one or not.

    Do you have the same attitude towards Jewish/Christian/Buddhist/Hindu/etc. doctors as well?

    Didn't think so ...
