Intensely Religious Corporations
Found this list. It is a list of 17 big companies that are intensely religious

Some may surprise you a bit.

Why are you still reading this line when it is obviously my signature line?

RE: Intensely Religious Corporations
I've often wondered... where is the line drawn between religion and work for corporations?

I see these corporations where they are super religious like this, but if you're doing something like making chicken, can you hire and fire people based on beliefs? Can you refuse to hire someone on the same grounds as well? How can it not be seen as discrimination? Wouldn't it fall in that category? I would assume so, but sometimes I'm amazed at what people can do when they say, "This is how our business is ran." so if it falls in the culture of the business could they technically fall on those grounds?

In-N-Out Burger was my favorite. I always just figured it was established by a porn producer.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Since the Christees are so fond of boycotting satanic companies like Disney and Proctor $ Gamble, maybe we ought to boycott companies owned by Christees!

Except for In-n-Out. I do love me some In-n-out Double Double animal style!

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load

I'll never eat there again without cheesy music running through my mind.

Hmm.. loading issues -can't view the list.
But I'm betting Hobby Lobby is right up there. They ask you straight up when you apply about your religion... yes, you are expected to have one.

Pretty creepy if you ask me. Shy

It is.

I don't think they can fire you for religious reasons. But I'm also pretty sure any private company can hire anyone they want for whatever reasons they want. As such, I think if you were hired by telling them you were a Christian and then it turned out you were really an Atheist... you could rightly and legally, be fired for lying or misrepresentation.

The only thing I can think of, would be if someone worked there already and seriously de-converted, became an agnostic and/or Atheist and was then fired... one would be then be legally protected and able to file suit. But they start and end each day with prayer... so why bother with that craziness?

Hobby Lobby makes it very clear they will sell to anyone, but the irreligious need not apply to work there. Legal when you do it up front.

*******
I finally got this article pulled up.... and what do you know... TYSON. Of course. 12 city blocks from my house.
That's some serious anti-union shit right there, too. They are indeed a pile of shit. Shy

RE: Intensely Religious Corporations
If a store clerk asked me my religion I would very politely say, "I'm an Atheists, you fucking prick. What's your religion?"
I've never been asked and certainly would never return to the store if they did (or would they even let me).
The Christians want to put the bash on "Happy Holidays" and boycott the stores for not saying "Merry Christmas".
I could care less, but if they every picketed a store I would go out of my way to give the store business.

The old gods are dead, let's invent some new ones before something really bad happens.
