Iím against it

I support this

itís NOT discrimination
itís NOT bigotry
I voted on the poll that it would be discrimination to hold a politician's religion, or lack there of, against them.
I voted that way because atheism is a form of religion, it's more vocal members are just as passionate about their beliefs,
as any other religious person,(maybe more so).
I will use as an example, the vigorous defense of atheist in this very thread.
Just because I do not accept any religion, and the claims they make does not mean that my nonacceptance itself is a religion. It is quite simply disbelief. I disbelieve in alien visitations and ghosts as well, does this mean that in your eyes they are religions too?
There is however emotion involved when people assign false attributes to me. regardless of what they are. So I am just clearing the air and your misconceptions although you do seem quite wedded to them, false or not.
Passion does not equal religion either btw. I am passionate about marine invertebrates. so I suppose that is a religion as well?
Just to answer the original thread title, no business should discriminate against anyone for their beliefs regardless of what those beliefs are. However I don't think the federal government should have any right to tell someone who they can or cannot hire.
ďMost people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.Ē
― Stephen R. Covey
Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
