    Then it appears you do give a crap about whether it's a Christian or non-Christian.

    But that wasn't my point. I was referring to the "poor little victim employee" versus the "hated corporate monster" scenario. Or do you not see it that way when the employee happens to be Christian?

    No. I corrected your assessment that her religious position makes her an underdog.

    She's not a victim. Quit fishing? Thanks.

    I mean, I agree, but that's because generally I support employer rights and sovereignty whenever possible.

    But the problem really isn't religious in nature. Employment is a contract between an employer and an employee, where the employee agrees to trade their labor for a certain amount of money and/or benefits. To get entirely away from religion, if someone in an interview said they wanted to wear a clown nose while at work and their hiring manager agreed that they could wear a clown nose while at work, then that's part of the contract. If that employee shows up on day one wearing a clown nose and is told to go home, they have every right to be pissed off because an official representative of the company, in a position of authority, has told them they could do it. In fact, I think the individual is perfectly validated in suing the company because the employee had a verbal contract with the employer through their legitimate representative.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    That is true. Usually when it's a corporation v an individual, the individual is the victim with them. Apparently like white men, conservative Christians can't be victims.

    The problem is religious in nature. Employees have the right to wear clothing that is required by their religion. Im sure she could sue because she had a verbal contract with the employer but she can also sue because they violated her rights as an employee to wear clothing required by her religion.
