    Again, that constitutionally protected right is about protection from the government. Not private citizens.

    They should accomodate her on this. It's not a big deal for them, but it is huge to her.
    I know they were Catholic back then, but isn't that one of the reasons they burned Joan of Arc at the stake?

    False, business's can not discriminate against race, gender identity ,religion, sexual orientation, they can't have a sign outside that says "Blacks enter through the back", they'd be shut down faster than Steve Downie trying to deke around Nicklas Lidstrom.

    That was the official reason, though the real reason was because she was kicking ass.

    If an employee doesn't want to eat a Memphis Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich or a bacon Sunday, then they just don't eat it.

    I've visited the place where they burned her at the stake in Rouen and the museum. It's awesome. Something about it, it's truly worth seeing.

    Try again ....... I will refer you to the EEOC position statement I posted.



    Yes you did avoid them. All that you have done is quoted law. You never once stated your opinion of that law. Nor have you provided an explanation of why you support the law if you do or why you don't support the law if you don't. Now I CAN assume that you fully support the law by your posting of it time after time. But you still have not given a valid reason as to why you support the law. I know you have basically stated that it is because the employer has too much power, which is subjective, but that is not a valid enough reason to deny the right of the employer to dictate their companies dress code and apply it to everyone regardless of race, religion, gender, or creed.

    Even the Federal government has the ability to apply a rule/law so long as they apply that rule/law equally. Hell, they can even allow a religion to display thier religious display's so long as they allow ALL religions to do it..or not...as long as its all applied equally. Why shouldn't a private company be allowed the same thing?
    Either you have cognitive problems or you simply wish to play games.

    Did you read what I wrote? I never claimed that it had to do with religion from BKs POV. And of course she is making this about religion. Because as I have already stated they are requiring her to violate her deeply held beliefs in order to work there. Basically allowing her to wear a skirt isnt going to hurt BK at all but not allowing her to wear a skirt is going to harm her.

    But will devout Muslim employees handle the food?
