    I would say that we hired a more qualified candidate.

    Come on, you know it's going to happen anyhow. Hormone-crazy kids usually aren't that picky.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You are trying to find anything that will support your opposition of this accommodation now.

    That's great if it's actually true but you and I both know that it's often a code phrase for discrimination. In some companies, funny how the "more qualified candidate" always turns out to be white or always turns out to have a particular religious belief. Shouldn't the actual goal be to stop discrimination period? To only hire the best qualified candidate regardless of gender, age, belief, creed or race? How many people do you think are turned away, not because they weren't qualified, but because they were the wrong religion or the wrong color?

    No, I'm asking a question, it's a perfectly valid question and one that you don't seem to want to answer.

    Go figure.

    I don't turn people away for their religion or race. I am looking to build the strongest team possible.

    You keep bringing up the issue of 'intolerance' and I am not sure why. First of all, when did it become incumbent upon the rationial to tolerate the irrational? Refusing to wear a certain clothing because you think some bearded guy in the sky will get mad at you isnt something that is going to get confused with rational thought or behavior. Pointing that out, is not displaying intolerance. I have no problem if people want to believe that or any number of a thousand similarly odd beliefs. The intolerant ones are those who wish to compel me through force of law to adapt my business plans or proceedures to accomodate such nonsense. If people want to go through life with a lampshade on their head it is no concern of mine. But the idea that I, as a business owner, must by law alter my uniform policy to include a lampshade headdress so as not to offend some cult members faith, shows a lack of respect for, and an intolerance of my rights.

    It's a retarded question. It starts with the retarded assumption that 17 year old boys can't control themselves and can't resist the urge to lift up a full length skirt, even when in the workplace.

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

    I worked in the food industry for 15 years and everbody wears either pants, shorts or short skirts. Nobody wears dresses or long skirts and this is for safety issues. BK is a huge chain and has its dress code. Even if the interviewer gave her incorrect information it doesn't change the fact that she needs to wear pants.

    There is nothing religious about this issue at all and those trying to make it so are completely missing the point, either purposely or ignorantly.

    You all have a weak argument. You keep using the most ridiculous examples. Wearing colanders on heads, lampshades on heads, and implanting zippers in your foreheads is nothing like wearing a skirt.
