    And the business should not have to cater to her. She can find a job where skirts are okay. If she can't wear pants, that is HER problem. Why does it have to make it Burger King's problem, or any other business' problem?

    Then wouldn't it have made sense to apply for a job where a long skirt is okay instead of walking into a place where EVERY SINGLE EMPLOYEE IS WEARING PANTS??????
    My main function as a Christian is to be the biggest possible jerk as a demonstration of the awe found in God's Grace and Forgiveness. (That love part comes in to play at some point)

    c'mon people. title VII was established in an effort to end discrimination in the work place
    and that is exactly what it is doing here
    the young woman - who i suspect would be an excellent employee because she obviously has core values and follows the edicts of her church - should not have to go seek out from among all employers that limited subset which welcomes those of the pentecost faith
    she is entitled to worship as she pleases and employers are not free to discriminate against her because of her faith
    in this instance, that includes her obeying her G_d and not wearing apparel her religion recognizes to be that of the opposing gender
    now, the employer gets a free pass to discriminate against accommodating her religiously prescribed needs IF it can show that such accommodation is unreasonable
    and that is now the burden of burger king. to demonstrate to the court that allowing this woman to wear a long skirt in the work place, instead of long pants, is an unreasonable accommodation
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Companies have a right to have a dress code.
    Employees who choose to work there agree to accept that dress code.

    Except for those who think they are "special" or something, and then apparently it's okay to bend rules and file frivolous lawsuits. I looked into this religion a bit. Sounds like it can be pretty oppressive to women.

    wow, that was intolerant
    that someone who insists on following the edicts of her church, someone who obey's the law of G_d as she understands them to be, is 'special'
    different, maybe. special, only in the positive sense

    We kind of agree, except that I think freedom allows her to choose that religion even if it is oppressive.
    My point is that if we force a company to make an exception for her, where are the boundaries?

    Sure, she's entitled to her religion. I totally agree with not forcing the company to make concessions for certain people on the grounds of religious or any other beliefs.

    The boundaries issue is good point, and who is to say which religions are considered "true" religions. If you think about it, whether or not a religion is true would totally depend on the believer. Also, when I read into this religion on a website, it specifically said that they can't wear "mens' clothing." It said NOTHING about having to wear a skirt. Maybe they DO believe they have to wear skirts, but I failed to find where it specifically mentioned skirts or dresses anywhere.

    easy answer
    "reasonableness"
    an unreasonable accommodation does not have to be made
