    I'm getting to really really have such disgust for republicans. Now they are going to say: "Well, you don't have to work for a religious boss".

    So--now bosses get to manage my personal life to their liking? For crying out loud....where's my right to be free from their religion? This has no business being in the workplace! It's personal!

    You know what I have an objection to? Republicans. Maybe I can ask what your political affiliation is before hiring you? 'Republicans need not apply'. How bout that?
