    She has equal opportunity and access to employment.
    No she didn't have equal access and opportunity. They sent her home because of her religious observance. An observance that in no way caused BK any hardship in any manner.

    Might as well let people send workers home for being black.

    No they didn't. They sent her home because she wore a skirt when the dress code they've had for decades explicitly said pants. The orientation instructor didn't even know about her religion until after he told her to go home. If she cannot adhere to the dress code of a company that she voluntarily applied for then that is her fault and not BK's.

    Yeah thats what I said. They sent her home for her religious observance.

    Good thing the government doesn't agree with your bigotry. We haven't gotten that retarded yet.

    BS and you know it.

    One: My stance has nothing to do with her religion (or any other relgion for that matter). I could care less what her religion is. You'll note that unlike some other posters in this thread I haven't once said anything negative about her religion. So keep your bigotry comments to yourself.

    Two: Twisting what I said does nothing for your arguement. Indeed all that it shows is that you cannot stand on your own two feet and argue this honestly.

    Companies in America, like BK, usually make reasonable religious accommodations. BK can not say, "Whelp, dress code. Go home lolz". Get with the times man

    And why shouldn't they be able to? Other than it being from a law.

    actually, your refusal to see the religious aspect of her argument is what blinds you from seeing the facts of the matter
    the pentecost was not arbitrarily seeking to ignore the dress code of the employer. her religious beliefs forced her to wear attire which did not conform to the employer's dress code
    due to her religious observance, she sought - and obtained - an accommodation such that she could conform to her religion's expectations while also being able to work for burger king
    unfortunately, the training manager, without an understanding of what caused her to be wearing a long skirt instead of the normally required pants, would not allow her to remain at the workplace

    I'm not refusing to see anything. She was arbitrarily seeking to ignore the dress code of the employer. She voluntarily applied for a job which she knew had a dress code that did not conform to her religious beliefs. You refuse to acknowledge this fact. She expects the company to accomodate her religious beliefs. Other than a law...why should they have to?

    From someone who did not have the authority to make such an accomodation. The right thing for him to have done is to confirm that it was OK to do such a thing from his superiors.

    He was just enforcing BK policy. Should he really be condemned for that?

    Haha, you can't say, "other than it being from a law". It IS a law/regulation, and BK has to follow it, or face litigation (as they are now). Now, onto "and why shouldn't they be able to?" Sure they can, but they do have to face the consequences, which is this very topic. You can argue you do not agree with the law/regulation, but it is what it is.

    So in otherwords you have nothing more than "its the law".
