Someone above me in pay grade needs to explain this to me.
I own a bakery. I am of a religious belief that says homosexuality is a sin. A gay couple comes in and requests a cake for their wedding. If I refuse, I can be sued. The ruling was, essentially, you run a bakery, not a church.
However, if I run a trucking company and two employees refuse to carry a load of alcohol, citing their religious beliefs, I cannot fire them, lest the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sue me for refusing to accommodate their religious beliefs.
Can someone reconcile these two stories? Ideally, it'd be nice if you were intellectually honest at the same time. How on bloody earth can a business get sued for refusing to do something based on their religious beliefs, while at the same time another business gets sued for doing something based on their employees' religious beliefs? Isn't the government playing both ends against the middle?
I have a solution, though. Make the Muslim truck drivers delivery gay wedding cakes...
That is all.
