Or do you, as a business owner, not have the right to choose to cease employing one of your workers?
    A hypothetical which didn't happen. No one who was at the party claimed to de offended. The company was fine with it until some outside preacher with no real interest claimed to be offended.

    It doesn't matter if anyone there was offended, it matters if the companies name was harmed in the process. YES, when you go out in public and you reserve a spot for your company party, YOU and those there are representative of that company and subject to that company's rules on it.

    If this was a case of 5 people getting together on their own without naming their company in the reservation, none of this would have happened.

    It doesn't matter if no one at the party claimed to be offended. If the business owner felt that the employees actions harmed the company's image then it's the business owners right to cease to employ the individual OR to require the individual take remedial action if he'd like to remain employeed.

Did you expect that your business owner bend to your will, or would such a statement be treated with a warning that the worker must obey?

    Simple childishness is at work here.

    Well, when Prince Harry wore the Nazi outfit he was 21. I was an idiot when I was 21, as were most of us. Also, I think his grandma is in a pretty unique place to give her grandson a history lesson.
