    And you would be wrong. Again. I have zero respect for organized religion and those who pimp it.

    And why should I be bitter about it? I mean imagine if a company harbored known pedophiles, and moved the employee around to create more victims one of which turned out to be your son and then filed bankruptcy when they got sued?

    And you don't quite understand why this might piss people off? Really?

    So if a manager at an rc cola plant covers up an employee lacing its soda cans with rat poison, we should be pissed off at all of soda kind... Interesting. I think the catholic church had a huge problem on it's hands and they handled it like idiots....

    But I'm not ready to start gunning down all catholics in the streets because of it... Like I said, you seem rather intolerant of the religious.

    So this doesn't apply? I haven't read much about the topic, but off the cuff I always assumed every hiring institution is bound by anti-discrimination law.
    Saying they are "private" is irrelevant to such laws I thought.

    Federal discrimination laws make it illegal for employers to discriminate against employees and job applicants in any aspect of employment based on age, disability, national origin, race, religion, genetics or sex (gender).

    Clearly there is a reading comprehension problem here. Might I suggest you get some help with that?

    Their atheism had nothing to do with it. Stalin killed people because he was a twisted little asshole.

    Man doesn't need god to kill his fellow man.
    No, but it sure helps.

    Wanna bet their "Catholic Hospitals" would cash the parent's checks for child birth?
    A fine emotional reactoin to it, but emotions don't dictate laws and courts should be ruling based on the law not emotions.

    Just because you think its dispicable, stupid, ignorant, or wrongheaded doesn't mean it's illegal or civily liable.

    Legally speaking, they're not discriminating against her due to her religion...they're discriminating against her for an action she's taken that violates the ethical standards they believe their employees should uphold. While they're ethical standards may be established due to their belief in religion, it is not directly discriminating against her due to HER religion. That would be more along the lines of "You're a muslim, so we're not hiring you".

    I already conceded that. However, i'm not so sure a court of law will agree. And neither, I suspect does her lawyer.
