    My point is that if we force a company to make an exception for her, where are the boundaries?

    A long skirt is easily a safety hazard in a place like BK. Easy on telling me when I can use caps lock.
    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)

    But they did hire her knowing about her skirt requirement.

    It's a response to his outrage over people boycotting Chick Fil-A.

    The boundaries I was speaking of was a companies ability to have a dress code.
    If we open the door for one religion, we open it for all of them.
    Think about a burka at Hooters( I have never been to one but get the general idea.)

    For the way the law is framed yes it is.

    Now, whats reasonable to you? Would (to use an example from another poster) a Pastafarian be allowed to wear their strainer hat? Or how about the guy that has all those rings pictured in a previous post? How about a Satanic religion...are those covered?
    You would be better served to actually read what I already said about these terrible arguments if you want to be taken seriously. The Pastafarian example is retarded. The pincushion guy would put a burden on BK because of food safety and being found unsettling to guests. I'm not sure what Satanic condition would have to be accommodated.

    What a weird thread this is in terms of who agrees with whom.

    We don't know exactly what was said during the interview. The EEOC established when she showed up for orientation she was told she could not wear a skirt. I think she asked the interviewer if she could wear a skirt to orientation and he said sure, not realizing she wanted to wear a skirt for employment.
