Ok, I must be in a bitchy mood but I sure as hell don’t get it. How is it that one can apply for a job as a cashier with full knowledge of what the job entails and, that due to their religious beliefs, knows there will be a conflict but fails to tell the employer when they accept the job? Customer service and faith clash at registers
Now as a cashier, from what I know, they go through a training period before being turned loose on your own. Still, throughout this training period they say nothing about a certain product/products being in conflict with their religion. It is only after they are on their own, a customer comes to their checkout station and one of their items, a “pork” product, do they suddenly remember that “pork” is against their religion and they refuse to scan the product. This, in my mind, is nothing but a plan that was intentional to begin with, one that was meant as a publicity stunt and a way to cry discrimination and cause disruption.
Trust me, this is not about pro or con regarding any one religion as I respect everyone’s religion and their own way of worship but I do resent the it when they try to use it as a way to disrupt our country. We are a melting pot but that doesn’t mean that we have to bow to everyone. We have our own country and by GOD we need to stand by her. There is no way, let’s say that Americans can go to France and demand they speak English, as an example, but yet WE are expected to change OUR way for everyone else. Now is it hard to even get a job unless you speak Spanish, yet this is America, an English speaking country. I feel we are quickly falling away from what being an American originally meant.
The fact that someone can take a job as a cashier, then refuse to scan “pork” because it is against their religion, to me is like someone becoming a barber but then refuses to cut hair as it is against their religion. I feel this was nothing short of a stunt and they probably had no intention of being a cashier to begin with.
I’d be interested to see if I’m the only one who feels this way but I’m hoping not.
