    we weren't discussing the law we were discussing the conflict of rights. the law I agree should be applied, my problem is that the law is an abuse of our liberties.

    Not money, but a lot of political gain on it? "They are taking away my religious freedom" surfaces at every election now since 1980.

She just can't wear her religious garb at work and must abide by the rules of the corporation. Think the Supreme Court will side AGAINST corporations?
    This isn't about practicing her religion. It's about whether not BK is obligated to accomodate her dress, regarding her religious belief.

    I get the feeling the girl is looking for a payday. I don't know how much this would effect anything politically, but what do I know?

    What? Can't have it both ways. The first amendment says no one can interfere with a person's religious freedom. This woman has NOT Had her religious freedom removed. She can practice her religion.

    As to the "religious beliefs", she can have that, too. She can wear her skirts. She cannot however, supersede the rules of the corporation and DEMAND that she be allowed to wear her religious icons at work.

    But this case is not about whether or not she can practice her religion.

    Well obviously that means all unions should be illegal. We should all live under martial law (aka, Military). Maybe we should also just have one generalissimo at the top.
