Now if this girl had been told to not work because of her religion - I'd agree. But she wasn't. She was told not to work because she did not abide by the dress code. Which has nothing to do with religion but professionalism - JUST like my earrings. If she had been fired for being white/black/green/gay/tall/fat etc, I'd be 100% behind her. But she wasn't. She was told not to work because she thought her religion exempted her from the rules everyone else has to follow. I can't say I feel sorry for her.
    it pains me to say it but I agree with Hatuey. A job has a dress code, you abide by it. If your religion forbids you to wear pants, then don't try to work at a place that requires pants.

    Besides, a belief is a strong thing and I don't think that we should really punish religious expression without good cause. Particularly if we're gonna run around and protect everyone else.
    Oh whatever the hell ever. A religious belief is an arbitrarily picked out bunch of nonsense people adhere to simply because they want to get into their own version of Oz. You can have it. You just don't get to change the rules everyone else has to do abide by because of that belief. Or are we only going to defend religious belief from now on? How about this. I'll start a new religion that discriminates against every other religion. When christians, jews, muslims etc come and apply for a job at my privately run company - I'll turn them down because of MY religious beliefs. How does that sound?

    this is just ignornat. You cannot justify religious discrimination because people choose their faith.

    They can't discriminate - but I don't get why it was permissible for her to work there to begin with.

    If she could not then there would be no basis for the EEOC to file the suit and they never would have. There would be no basis for any complaint to the administrative agency either.

    Oh reeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaally. That seems to be the entire argument in favor of discriminating against homosexuals. It's a choice. Right? So if choices CAN be discriminated against - what's so different about discriminating against Christians on the same basis?

    religion is not nonsense any more than homosexuality or anything else.

    You're confusing me woman! Why wouldn't it be permissible for her to work there?
