Because freedom can't protect itself
Wow, really? If you work somewhere isnt that b/c you agree with their core beliefs? i thought if you were going to work for a Muslim organization it would be assumed that you agreed with their beliefs to in order to promote not defame their organization. Same with Christians and Jews. A devout Jew would make a terrible employee for a Muslim or Christian organization. Just like a devout Marxist would make an awful representative for a strong Capitalist organization. Who are these people applying to jobs that they disagree with? Why would you apply to a job if you disagree with their core beliefs?
"Why would you apply to a job if you disagree with their core beliefs?"
To undermine and destroy that organization for its beliefs... obviously.
We should not tolerate discrimination.
Reminds me of a Middle Eastern law for some reason
Maybe that would make a decent argument if we weren't discussing government-funded jobs.
If religious organizations want to discriminate, they need to do it with their own money, not taxpayers'
I bet if we were to ask americans what they think both political parties are all about they would likely agree in large numbers that they are both about corporations. The GOP, however, in my opinion, is 100% for corporations. Since corporations do not vote, we do, why can't the ACLU sue both parties for FALSE IDEOLOGY, MISREPRESENTATION and possibly many civil right infringements. Could someone PLEASE help me understand why we cannot do this???
