A Cincinnati man is suing LA Fitness after he said operators of the gym in Oakley told him he was not allowed to pray in the locker room after his workout.
Western Hills High School alumnus Mohamed Fall is a practicing Muslim and a former college basketball star who has used the LA Fitness facility on Marburg Avenue since 2013, according to his lawsuit filed in federal court Monday.
Fall claimed in his suit that he was accosted by three LA Fitness employees while he was engaged in quiet prayer in an empty obscure corner of an at the time unoccupied locker room" after a workout session Jan. 29.
He said the employees told him he was not allowed to pray in the gym and if he did not comply with their direction, he would be escorted out and not allowed to return. The workers told Fall the decision was made by a corporate manager who had witnessed his prayer that day, the lawsuit states.

Was at the Charlotte airport the other day and a Muslim threw down his rug right next to me.
Respectfully, "we" are no such thing. A minority is "politically correct" in this country, and that minority has gradually, over the course of several decades:
a) usurped control of a state-run schools so it dominates the education system
b) manipulated and ginned votes (vote harvesting, illegal votes, Motor Voter laws, dead votes, resistance to voter ID, multiple voting, outright fraud, etc. etc.) so it steals elected offices
c) culturally dominated both the news media and entertainment culture, creating the appearance of a nation dominated by "political correctness," when in FACT it is only the MSM and education systems that are dominated by political correctness.
Read what real American have to say about political correctness. Here's a prime example just from yesterday, the article in Deadline Hollywood about the miserably low ratings for the Academy Awards.
Having read literally thousands of such anonymous comments on MSM and apolitical or outright lefty sites, from L.A. Times to yahoo, from Washington Post to Hollywood Reporter, I can tell you true and sure: by a margin of nearly two to one, "we" hold political correctness, not to mention liberals, in contempt.
The left has to cheat for a reason. The left, whether Democrats or left-leaning Republicans like Thad Cochran, would lose if they didn't, because liberals/leftists ARE THE MINORITY. It's why they have to cheat.
Americans are great and will be even greater when they figure out how much they have been bamboozled by illusions created by the MSM of a fake "liberal" majority.
Christians out, islamists in.
Butts up for allah.
They've never heard of wet wipes?
Wet Wipes have been removed from KFC in Britain because the alcohol offends Muslims.
It could well make the other patrons uneasy.
I would not feel good about seeing them praying on an airplane I was getting ready to fly on.
Christians need to start praying the Lord's Prayer out loud in every public place, sing their grace* before a meal in every restaurant, and for Catholics to pray the rosary wherever they go. Everyone should hand out religious tracts and prayer cards, especially if they see muslims with their butts in the air, as I have in a Washington, DC restaurant. Let the ACLU atheists keep busy stamping out a ton of whack-a-moles. It is the ACLU's interference since the 50s to quash Christianity that has made this muslim incursion possible.
If it happens in a locker room near you, whip out your cell phone and call the person who always makes you very angry or very amused.
Just say Muslims “offend you”.
Works for the atheists.
The Secret Best Way To Keep Muslims Far Far Away
By Walid Shoebat
If you want to annoy ISIS terrorists, just blow a horn or play a musical instrument. Muhammad, the prophet of Islam said so:
Anas narrated that the prophet said, Two sounds are accursed in this world and the hereafter: (the sound of) musical instruments in time of happiness and wailing during calamity. (Al-Bazzaar).If you want to ensure that Muslims stay aways from your neighborhood, perhaps you can do what this patriot Australian does:
Next time, ask in a cordial voice, "Do you mind if I join you in prayer?" Then recite the Lord's Prayer at the top of your voice. Stand up and raise your arms to heaven. Put a lot of emotion into it. Sob a little!
It occurs to me that muslim prayers in San Francisco could be a tad hazardous.
Groveling on the floor in a public locker room - with their asses in the air — creates a hostile work environment.
Is that a better way of saying it?
Marketing opportunity! Someone invent a non-alcohol wet wipe and "clean up" in Michigan! Also, the fact that they exist will allow businesses to provide them instead of foot baths. Put a picture of an attractive woman in a burka on the package!
Not really. For other members who would be in the locker room they pay dues for, get out your cell phone and call someone and talk and laugh loudly during any butt-in-the-air demonstration in a locker room. It's better than complaining. It shows what the locker room is for all the members, not just the ones who want to use it for a prayer room.
Got it! Good idea. Maybe crank up some tunes, too.
A Muslim mosque wouldn’t allow people to being in a stationary bike and start exercising, so I don’t see why people should expect a “right” to pray at a gym.
...and pigskin instead of vinyl seat coverings.
Have they apologized yet?
