    Would having piercings and visible tattoos interfere with taking orders, and pushing buttons on a cash register?

    Why is it ok to make allowances for some religions, and not others?

    A piercing could fall out and into someone's food.

    There is nothing unsettling to customers about a long skirt. Using your skull as a pincushion is a different story.

    She could trip in a long skirt and get hurt, which would set the business up for a lawsuit.

    Either you support making businesses make accommodations for religious beliefs, or you don't. If you do support it, then that means ALL religions.

    Nice false dichotomy.

    I support reasonable accommodations.

    What would reasonable be? The ability to do the job? If so piercings would have no effect.

    No effect? If they sneeze they could put someone's eye out!

    If you ignore the fact that facial piercings are against food safety code and will be found unsettling to customers, then yeah, it's just like a long skirt,

    Reasonable is not having an effect on food safety or the guest's experience.

    Piercings with captive beads are less likely to fall off than regular earrings.
    The whole point is that you can't pick and choose which religions you want the government to make laws to protect, and also which religions should be protected by business practices. It really is an all or nothing thing.

    You do realize that accommodations have always been made for religion right? While rings are not acceptable to wear in food service, they will accommodate for wedding bands. No one makes you wash the ashes off your forehead on Ash Wednesday.

    Accomodating is something that should be left to the individual businesses discretion not mandated by law.
