If the employees are not being paid to attend these prayer meetings they should contact the wage hour division of the Labor dept. I had a friend who worked in a factory run by one of these hypocrites. When the owner wasn't forcing employees to attend prayer meetings he was preying on the young girls that worked in the factory. If they didn't cooperate they were harassed until they quit or fired. Fortunately he was finally caught and paid a hefty price for his predilections!

Read about the factory owner and Reyna Angelica Marroquin on Long Island. I'm a Long Islander and I remember when that happened

I am about as pro gay rights as one can get. So when I agree with you I will be called a homophobe and will be subject to every one insulting me with the most vile of insults. It will be claimed that I want blacks called the N word. I will be told to go back in time and join the Nazi party. I will ask how I would like to be called names [by people calling me names].
While it is inappropriate to says gay people are going to hell in a staff meeting, if he is the owner of the business he can say what ever he wants to him employees and they are free to leave and find employment elsewhere.
I know that won't fly either. Gay people will say, we shouldn't have to find another job. If bigots don't like us the government should force them to not insult us, we have a right not to be insulted.
I commented to comrade peter1313 that when I went to a leather bar in SF one time with my gay cousin, as we sardined our way through the crowd guys would cop a feel and I asked if I should sue the owner for sexual harassment. I was told that if I didn't like how gay bar owners ran their businesses that I should stay out of them. He is exactly right of course, but he is inconsistent because if gays don't like how a bakery is run comrade peter 1313 says they should go to court and have the government make him change his business practices.
"Can't we all just get along?"
Right, right...same song from you.

Get rid of all the laws and everything will work out just fine because people are good at heart, right always win and the "free market" will take care of everything.

How thick are those rose colored glasses of yours?

That is why we have a judicial system, to insure that both employer and employee are treated fairly. The employer was asking for legal action against him by his own behavior. You cannot compare this case to an illegitimate slip and fall.

The simple TRUTH is that MOST people, including the average person, politicians, and worst of all judges and justices, do NOT support, nor believe in, the ideals of, nor the literal meaning of, the U.S. Constitution, PARTICULARLY The Bill Of Rights' 9th Amendment and 10th Amendment. So they simply ignore it and violate it every chance they get. Most particularly that socialist joke who claims he's President of ALL 57 states !(including the ketchup state too, I guess).
Have you seen this video? I think it is the best thing since sliced bread. It explains it all so well, we can all go home now. LOL! Check it out, It describes the authoritarians we are dealing with.
