    How do you know? After all, here we have a woman in a skirt applying to a place she knows doesn't allow skirts.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Well she didnt know they didnt allow skirts due to the fact that they told her it would be no problem. However the Hooters wouldnt have to hire a woman who needs to wear a burka because it would interfere with the job at hand.

    Because of Title VII and many other restaurants that have pants policies but accommodate skirts for religiously oppressed women.

    Not to mention the fact that the job requires serving alcohol which a burka wearing woman would not do. That would be a burden on the employer.

    As long as it does not inhibit her ability to effectively perform her job duties then I believe that Burger King could and should accommodate her. Just my two cents.

    I don't think it matters from the EEOC pov.
    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)

    People don't walk around with hot coffee either. It is made in the same spot it is poured from.

    But to follow your logic, maybe they shouldn't wear shoes. OMG, what if a shoelace comes untied and someone trips and does a bellyflop into the frier?
    Right. Because the fries and coffee magically fly from their locations into the hands of customers.

    Of course she knew they didn't allow skirts, otherwise she wouldn't have asked for an exception from the rule! She was very much aware of the rules.

    For women who are voluntarily oppressed, you mean.
