    You folks do realize that the OSHA website is both public and free to view, right?

    So now you are against someone practicing their religious beliefs?

Both of these situations could pose a danger in an industrial-type kitchen.
    I worked in a restaurant with a pentacostal lady and she never got hurt wearing her skirt.

    Both are fine.

You cannot pick and choose which religion the law applies to. That in itself is discrimination. It would be awefully stupid to have a law to prevent discrimination when the law itself discriminates against the very thing that it is suppose to help prevent discrimination from wouldn't you say?
    No, it's not an all or nothing deal. And yes, reasonable accommodations are applied equally.

So, is she making up her own rules here?
    No, she isn't making up her own rules. Her demonination of religion makes up the rules. For Pentacostal women, women's pants are a no-no.

    You are now being obtuse. A skirt is not a "silly exception". I'm not surprised you don't understand what reasonable means.

    I don't give a damn about religious beliefs, I think anyone who believes in imaginary friends is an idiot. Personally, I'm defending her only because she was granted a specific exception by an individual in power. It has nothing to do with religion, I'd be supporting someone who wanted to wear a clown nose and got permission for that by the hiring manager.

    This really isn't a matter of religious freedom, it's a matter of granted permission in the hiring agreement.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
