    I think it does impose undue hardship on BK. BK is a global company and if it has to alter its uniform policy to accommodate any conceivable religious observance, they will have no uniform policy. Plus, the policy itself is not burdensome. It offers mens and womens uniforms--much like any company.

    I could understand if they singled out this person somehow, but they are not singling her out. This is a rule that ALL employees have to abide by. They shouldn't have to make an exception for one person. If they do that, then they have to do it for everyone, and then bye-bye dress code and uniforms.

    It's only common sense.

    Just as it's fun to watch you be all "if you don't like it, you don't have to work there". I'm Christian and I think the lawsuit is silly. Businesses should have the right to project the image they want and anyone who doesn't like it doesn't have to work there.

    This could be counted as an instance in which the Loser pays legislation would prove itself fruitful. Much ado about nothing.

I'll start a new religion that discriminates against every other religion. When christians, jews, muslims etc come and apply for a job at my privately run company - I'll turn them down because of MY religious beliefs. How does that sound?
    So you'd be fine if someone was fired over their political beliefs, right?

    If they voice their political beliefs in a manner that clashes with their occupational requirements, they do not retain the guarantee of employment.

    This goes right down to the core of why I self-label "independent" rather than anything else... nobody really stands up for individual rights anymore, not consistently.

    Most conservatives are pro-business to the point of thinking "freedom" means to let employers walk all over their employees.
    Libertarians mostly live in a fantasy world where they think the employer-employee relationship is non-coercive and a negotiation between equals (it isn't).
    Liberals vary, hell at least SOME of them support the individuals' right to follow their conscience within reason, but a then others are knee-jerk religion haters.

    No political ideology is really looking out for "the little guy/gal" these days. One side wants to let government walk all over you, the other side wants to let corporations walk all over you.

    A plague on both houses.

    Not to me. You either have rights or you don't.
