The left likes to present religious freedom as a bigoted loophole for intolerant white Christians, so it’s worth highlighting another case of an ideological disturbance: Last month, a federal appeals court ruled that a Muslim male prisoner in Wisconsin could be exempt from ribbon searches involving a biologically female transgender defender.
“The moral principles of his faith” forbade him “from revealing his body to a woman other than his wife,” Judge wrote. Diane Sykes of the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. When inmates protested against the 2016 strip raid, guards responded that the transgender guard “is male and qualified to perform these duties.” Prison officials threaten discipline if inmates raise further complaints.
