Pagan Fired Because, Y'know, Pagan
« on: March 25, 2021, 12:46:01 pm »
Pagan woman sues Panera in Pleasant Hills, Pennsylvania, over religious discrimination

"McCoy practices Neopaganism, which the lawsuit described as “a movement by modern people to revive nature-revering/living, pre-Christian religions or other nature-based spiritual paths, frequently also incorporating contemporary liberal values.”

"“The plaintiff did not discuss her religion or her religious beliefs at work and viewed her (as well as other individuals’) faith as strictly a private matter,” the lawsuit said.

"However, on May 29, while McCoy was outside taking a break, according to the complaint, assistant general manager Kerri Ann Show said she was Christian and then asked McCoy, “what religion are you?” "

You can imagine how things went from there...

The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

This lawsuit is a slam-dunk. She will be one suddenly wealthy pagan.

(Maybe we can get her to finance our proposed Opus 40 solstice!  ;) )

I hope so, but discrimination is tough to prove without having actual recordings and stuff.  I know where I won't be eating, though, given that it sounds like the corporate office is not in any hurry to disavow such behavior.
