Judge Rules Against Police Officer Who Refused to Attend Islamic Proselytizing Event

Police Officer Paul Fields viewed the directive to attend an Islamic proselytizing event as "an unlawful order, as it is in direct conflict with my personal religious convictions, as well as to be conscience shocking."
( An Oklahoma federal judge ruled December 13, 2012 that the City of Tulsa and two of its senior police officials, Chief of Police Chuck Jordan and Deputy Chief of Police Daryl Webster, did not violate the constitutional rights of Captain Paul Fields, a Tulsa Police officer who was summarily punished for refusing to attend a mandated Islamic proselytizing event held at a local mosque.
