    That's a conundrum. Me, too. Wonder which would be the forerunner?

    How about a Skih wearing a turban? Or a Muslim fundamentalist wearing a burkha? Both would have to be accommodated, as well.

    So, I guess that means we'll have to let the Pastafarians wear their spaghetti strainer hats too. Nice. Why would a business even bother with a dress code when they have to make all kinds of silly exceptions?

    Which I wrote. Then, during the process of thought and discussion, it swelled into Title VII and went from there. Discussions are truly remarkable ways of uncovering more and more information.

    Great question.

    Mormons would need to have their magic underwear and would they have to be accommodated in handing out their bible with every large order of fries?

    Saw that. So we are left to not know if the girl told her it was for religious reasons or not.

    BTW, given these laws were made in 1964, I guess we can all thank the democrats for religious freedom in this nation.

    How do you figure? Could you expand on that more? Interesting.

    I once worked in a restaurant kitchen with a Sikh. His turban was not an issue at all, especially since we were all required to wear some kind of hat.

    A fundamentalist Muslim woman would already be in violation of her religion by getting a job where she would be in the company of men who are not her family. So...can't see where that would come up.

    Target here in Minnesota has many Muslim women working there. They simply wear a red headscarf and it's fine. Most of them also do not work in a capacity where they would be required to handle pork. It's quite simply not a problem 99% of the time.
