    Totally the same.

    I believe that Joe Pesci is the One True God who will save us from the alien invasion. Am I like Rosa Parks too?

    Could they fire you for, on your own time and away from the workplace, practicing your religion?

    Rosa Parks' rights were being violated. Duck Guy's are not.
