A judge has heard arguments on both sides after a Tulsa police captain sued after being reassigned for refusing to attend a Law Enforcement Appreciation Day at an Islamic Center.

Captain Paul Fields served 80 hours of unpaid punishment in February of 2011 for that refusal and has filed a suit saying the order violated his religious rights.

A judge heard arguments from both sides on Tuesday and will make a decision.

Oh what a tangled web we ••• Frankly I'm rooting for the captain. Separation of church and state and all that dusty old constitutional stuff. Im pretty sure they're unbiased and have no urgent craving to be bribed by sweetbread to play nice nice with Muslims.
