    Oh. Sorry.

    Neither of us are then, and together, now, we can acknowledge that we aren't. Are we together on that?

    Does this call for a group hug? Two constitues a group, doesn't it?

    So you feel that your beliefs entitle you to dictate company policy?

    I think there was a misunderstanding here. That sentence was in reference the question "does the guy that did the hiring have the authority to change company policy?".

    Nor do they have to. Find a job that does not have a policy which may interfere with their religious beliefs. You yourself admitted that you voluntarily of your own free will applied for that job. No one forced you to it. You are the supplicant to any job that you apply for.

    Lets see if this will get across what I have been trying to say. Can a contract over ride a persons rights? Yes or no?

    When did I say that? I said it depends on the situation. As a personal example a company should have to accommodate my gender identity. Even if I am a genetic male I shouldnt have to follow the male dress code.

    It doesnt matter if there are other jobs available. Employees still have rights and employers still have to follow government regulations and guidelines for hiring procedures.

    In certain situations yes a contract can override a persons rights. Military service comes to mind. However I dont believe that a contract can override someones rights in most situations but I really dont know the legality of that.

    I can't fault you for that since that's been my position on carrying a gun at work (I've been considering carrying one to collage since it's not illegal, but it's absolutely against the collage's rules. If I get discovered, I'll be expelled, but if I need it and don't have it, I could get killed).

    It's quite likely this young lady's family is more like us than we realize. She's going to do what she wants regardless, and she'll see whoever doesn't like it in court.
