So if a pharmacist refuse to dispense any pills that have been tested on animals because of their rPETA beliefs that would be okay?
I think the store is great for accommodating an employee's religion. But if I were working there and wound up working harder and longer due to their accommodation to the other employee, I would be quite peeved.
If I were not an employee and just a customer, I probably would choose not to shop there. I gotta have my bacon , and knowing that lane is empty and I'm in a long line but cannot go to that lane....pfffffffffft. Other stores would probably welcome a new customer.
I don't care what any individuals beliefs are, really don't.
Muslim, Christian, Atheist, whatever.
I also think that your religion or non religion, is for you to observe.
That means not putting anyone else out, so you can be all religious or non religious.
When she got the job at the grocery store, she had to know that this stuff was present inside.
Asking someone else to bend, for your religion, is rude.
Even if it's done with a warm smile and fuzzy feelings, it's still rude.
You should adjust your life, per your religious rule, not everyone else.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
I love the fact that the issue was resolved at the lowest level (my love of decentralized management), but the jihadists would be unimpressed by this gesture.
