    Even if it's done with a warm smile and fuzzy feelings, it's still rude.
    Asking anyone for a favor which is intended to make your life easier or more comfortable is rude?

    A private business decides that it would like to be extra respectful to a particular employee's religious views. I have absolutely no issue with that. If you DO have an issue with it...guess what? Don't buy from that business. Simple as that.

    Not working on religious holidays is totally different than working and expecting religious considerations. The pork and alcohol are packaged, no one is asking the Muslim girl to eat pork (ummmm bacon) or drink alcohol just ring it up for non-believers. What's next pharmacist that won't sell birth control because it's against their religious agenda? Ooops. Maybe these folks need a job that doesn't conflict with their beliefs

    I disagree entirely. For example, I don't think someone asking for Sunday's off for Church to be any more rude than someone asking for Friday's off to go to the high school Football games. Communication between employer and employee is vital for a good working environment. A good employer needs to be ready and able to put his foot down and say "No". Part of being a manager is being able to say "no" to your employees when its needed, even if its not an easy situation to do it. Part of being a good employee however is to be open with your employer about your thoughts regarding the job while being understanding that it is not your call in the end.

    Take religion out of it. Say this was a straight edge individual who felt uncomfortable dealing with alcohol or cigarettes in the line? I don't think it'd be rude for him to voice that to his manager. And his manager would not be rude to go "I understand your issue, but we can't pick and choose what we check." On the flip side, he could look into having the guy do stocking instead of checking, or be one of the people over looking the self check out lane, or some other option if he wanted. But I don't think it's rude for the employee to be honest about their thoughts.

    What would be rude would be to say "I will not...." x, y, z and insist/demand/threaten.

    Well first, you use the word "refuse". It'd be "okay" in the notion that he's free to do it, and I'd suggest the store owner would be okay to fire the person for making ultimatums regarding a routine action of a job they willingly took.

    HOWEVER...

    If you want to be honest and consistent with the story, let's say a Pharmasist suggest they're uncomfortable doing such.

    If a store owner wants to take that input and wants to allow it to happen, that's perfectly okay. No issue at all.

    If they decide that it would be too much of a negative impact on business or that they don't want to bend for non-religious beliefs or what have you, and thus they don't allow the pharmasist any special action then I think that's perfectly okay too.

    It's a private store owner running their business in a way they feel comfortable with in terms of employee relations and a business model. No issue at all. My issue would come in at the point where government attempts to start regulating it.

    Why would anyone have a problem with a private business making their own decision to treat their employees in a respectful fashion?

    No, and especially not if the employer feels that those considerations are reasonable. Both are examples of asking your employer to accommodate the impact of religion in your life. There is no difference.

    Your objection seems to be that asking for a religious holiday off is within your realm of experience (either personal or vicarious) but something like this isn't -- and that's not a valid objection.

    As far as it goes with the birth control example, that's a flawed comparison -- Wegmans will have other registers open, because while this manager respects this cashier's desire to avoid contact with pork and alcohol, Wegmans is still going to sell lots of pork and lots of alcohol.

    For a lot of people, hysteria has replaced reasoned discourse.
