    title VII does not discriminate
    it prohibits employers from discriminating based on race or religion (or color or gender or national origin)
    which means, just as it makes it unlawful for an employer to refuse to hire someone because they of a specific race, they are similarly prohibited from refusing to hire someone because they practice a particular religion (so long as the accommodations required to employ that person are not found unreasonable)

    And she wasn't. She was told to go home by the orientation instructor when she came to work in a skirt. His sending her home had NOTHING to do with her religion. It had EVERYTHING to do with BK's dress code policy. The only people that made this about religion was her and those supporting her.

    burger king cannot unreasonably place her in that position to have to choose between the two
    BK didn't. She did when she voluntarily put in her application to apply for the job at BK. She put herself in that situation. BK did not force her to apply for the job.

    the reason she showed up in a skirt was two-fold
    1. it conformed to her RELIGIOUS practice (one you seem intent to ignore)
    2. it conformed with the agreement she had from the burger king official who authorized her employment

    I ignore it because the only ones makeing it about her religion are her and those that support her. The orientation instructor did his job and nothing more. He did not tell her to go home because of her religious beliefs.

    An official who did not have the authority to change BK policy. He was the one that was in the wrong in all of this. Not BK, not the orientation instructor. And she holds some blame to for i'm sure that she knew the dress code of BK. A person would have to be deaf, dumb, and blind to not know it.

    he told her to go home because she was wearing the attire another burger king official had authorized for her to wear to the job, knowing her religious convictions

    he was burger king's agent. he was authorized to hire her. as burger king's agent, he authorized the religious accommodation, permitting her to wear a long skirt instead of slacks

    thank you for establishing that it was the burger king employees who are now the reason burger king will have to defend its actions before the court

    Re: Christian Woman Fired from Burger King for Wearing Skirt Instead of Pants

    Know what I just realized about this thread? I have never done so much skirt chasing without a single iota of hope of getting a date.
    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)

    And that's why it is a reasonable accommodation. It doesn't cause a problem for BK.

    Easy on the capslock.

    No one is hurt by her skirt.

    It is oppressive to women. I've always been amazed that women willingly support religions that oppress them.
