    Oh, thanks for clarifying-- you see I was confused.

    because the same religious law would dictate the church should fire anyone who shaves their beard, eats shellfish, etc.

    Somehow though, they haven't seemed to apply their "law" consistently and equally.
    Why would that be?

    My point was that strict religionists in the US who would want to enforce religious law on their adherents would be Christian or Muslim. If we support Biblical law should we not then support Sharia law?

    Jewish law, I don't know.

    Each religion has its own religious canon and set of rules. I really see no problem. You will not last long at Citigroup if you wear red jeans to work.

    You would not allowphysical detainment, mutilation or capital punishment and the like by the religious order, but beyond that?

    She signed a contract and then violated it. Terminating her is neither cold nor heartless. She agreed to the rules, she should have complied with them.

    Looking over this thread, some people are acting like this is the first pregnant woman ever fired. A few are acting as if being pregnant somehow grants immunity to being fired. Many on both sides are acting like the lawsuit is in a religious court and thus what the bible says is in any way relevant.

    Let me clue y'all in: if you agreed to a rule, and then you broke it, your ass is fired.

    I fear some of y'all don't understand what cold and heartless are. Following contract to the letter doesn't mean you're being warm and understanding. In fact, it could be cold and heartless. So saying "she signed a contract" doesn't mean that the church couldn't have also been cold and heartless. For tossing this woman out because she wouldn't set a wedding date on their time table is, while legal because she did sign a contract, cold and heartless.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    She should get an abortion and keep her job. Problem solved.
