When do your rights outweigh the rights of others who are seeking to establish their rights based on
their religious upbringing? Much is in the news lately about individuals that are suing because someone refused to accept work requirements from them due to differences of personal opinion. So, where do we draw the line? When do you believe it is right to refuse service to another individual? Do you believe that this should apply?
When it comes to religion and work requirements, I believe the only businesses and organizations that should be allowed to have a bias toward who they hire or let in as members are religious-based ones. I know some people will argue against that, but hear me out. If a religious school wants only teachers who belong to that religion and the school is fully funded by the religion running it, the board should be allowed to enforce that rule. The same goes for any other business or organization - if fully funded by the religious organization, they can control who they hire based on their chosen guidelines and lay down rules to be followed based on that religion. If they receive any money at all from the government at any level, that becomes null and void.
I understand your stance. If business owners are not permitted to reject clients based on their own personal safety and religious beliefs, then we could surmise that if I had a client who chose to deliver a cake by camel that I would need to do it.
