    Honestly, I'm not sure how impressed we ought to be with voluntary oppression. They did it to themselves and while they can get out of it any time they want, they refuse to. If they want to suffer, let's oblige them.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You don't see me pulling them out of their churches. I'm not going door to door to "enlighten" them.

    While he may be authorized to hire her he is not authorized to change policy. How hard is that to undestand?

    Yeah they will have to. But if there is any actual justice then she will not win.

    Correction. The one that hired her knew about it. Not the one that sent her home.

    YOU consider the Pastafarian example retarded...would the Pastafarians? Funny how you are willing to reject them but not this woman. Is it because this womans religion is a more acceptable type of religion compared?

    Pincushion guy as you call him would present no more of a safety hazard than this woman would.

    As for the Satanists...it doesn't matter as long as its considered "reasonable" right?

    Why not? If this woman can make BK let her wear a skirt then why couldn't a woman wearing a burka do the same to Hooters?

    ...and the EEOC after their investigation. Indeed, they filed themselves against BK which is a rarity in employment litigation.

    I meant that if they're going to believe in stupid crap, they ought to embrace the consequences that comes along with believing stupid crap. Their foolish beliefs just might cost them potential jobs. They have a choice, either stop believing stupid crap or have a harder time finding work.

    And how many times has the EEOC been proven wrong? Your adherance to them is interesting.
