This woman in Texas has been fired over a religious discrimination case…for not being Christian enough.
A Texas logistics firm, Gulf Winds International, fired a woman because she wouldn’t hand out religious literature for her employer. She felt uncomfortable with these religious demands.
Dee Anne Thompson’s lawsuit explains:
“Despite the fact that they are subject to laws regarding religious discrimination, defendant on a daily, routine, and regular basis sent emails containing Christian religious information, quotes and prayers to employees.”
Thompson was demoted and eventually fired. The lawsuit said:
“Defendant discriminated and retaliation against plaintiff based on religion and because of her opposition [to] forced religious material in the workplace.”
The company’s mission statement says that their mission is to:
“… Is to glorify God by providing world class logistics services through continual investment in our people, clients, community and the world we live in.”
Thompson is seeking damages for employment discrimination on religious grounds, retaliation, and violation of the Commission on Human Rights Act.
The employer took her to lunch and told her she needs to reexamine her “walk with Jesus.”
This is just plain ridiculous. No one should be fired for ANY kind of religious grounds. There is no excuse for this.
