2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.
If a high percentage of shoppers had alcholol or pork and that isn't too wild of a possibility then some clerks could be have lines 5-6 shoppers while she just had one. Human nature being what it is , I think that is going to bring on resentment. Perhaps she should have obtained a different position in the store such as working in produce. Or does working for a store that sells pork and beer violate her religion?
This is between the employer and the employee. There have been zero customer complaints, so it looks like the store made a good decision that keeps everyone happy. I don't see why anyone would have a problem with this.
Also, I heart Wegmans.
"Yes, but are you a Protestant atheist or a Catholic atheist?".- Northern Irish joke
- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
God forbid her boss show some compassion in a way that hurts absolutely no one without a stick up their ass. It's not like this is a private agreement between two people that doesn't cost money. No, let's make a huge issue about this and get all butt-hurt, because what goes on in some Wegmen's that I'll never visit in upstate New York has such a huge impact on both mine life and the lives of others. Please, let's drag this thread out for another 35 pages to discuss how the Liberal-Peacenik-Pinko-Secular Fascists are teaming up with the Islamo-Nazis.
On one hand, we have a situation in which an employer and an employee agreed to a requested accommodation for the employee's religious beliefs, which was acceptable to both parties, and which does not appear to have involved any form of coercion against either. Thunder seems to have a big problem with this.
On the other hand, a new law that requires employers to pay for certain benefits for their employees which, to many employers, is perceived as immoral and a serious violation of their religious beliefs. Here, Thunder defends and supports the idea of using government force to compel employers to violate their deeply-held religious and moral beliefs.
None of this really tells us anything about Thunder that we didn't already know. It's just another very good example that illustrates how repugnant the concepts of freedom and personal responsibility are to him, and how much he loves excessive use of government force against individual freedom and responsibility.
The five great lies of the
We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
