    That's what you say, but it could easily come down to a safety issue. Even if accidents don't happen every day, not allowing employees to wear loose flowing clothing could prevent an accident from happening. When they make people with long hair put their hair up or wear a hair net, it's not just so hair doesn't get in the food but also so that it doesn't catch on fire or anything.

    No, they're not, but if they don't hire her specifically because her religion doesn't allow her to follow their dress code, they get accused of religious discrimination. They can't win.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Showing she already knew what the dress code was and knew that her beliefs would likely violate that dress code.

    Or maybe she didnt know the dress code until she was being interviewed and the interviewer brought it up...all of this is just speculation and really doesnt matter.

    Seriously, you're looking for a job and you've never stepped foot in a Burger King? That's about as ridiculous as applying at a Hot Dog on a Stick and not knowing you have to wear a stupid hat.

    It's nice that your lawyering for BK because you have intolerance to this Christian woman. If she were a black Muslim, you'd be doing handsprings and calling for the ACLU to bring a multi-million dollar suit against them. Women were preparing meals in dresses thousands of years before BK existed.

    Actually, I was thinking what happens when some stupid 17-year old oversexed kid decides to try to look up her skirt and she sues Burger King for sexual harassment. After all, she's the one that insisted on wearing the skirt in the first place, the incident could never have happened had she just worn pants like everyone else.

    They would be colossal idiots to say that is why they didn't hire her.

    Sure, but are we trying to achieve non-discrimination, or just not saying why we're discriminating?

    That would be pretty difficult since their skirts go all the way to their feet. Also, they don't cut their hair. He might as well google images of chinchillas.
