It seems to me that post would fit better at DU. Attacking a man for standing up for Judeo-Christian morality on a conservative site? Wow.
The bipartisan Workplace Religious Freedom Act (WRFA) was introduced in the United States Senate by Senator Rick Santorum (R-Pennsylvania) and Senator John Kerry (D-Massachusetts) on March 17, 2005, and in the House of Representatives by Representatives Mark Souder (R-IN), Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY), Bobby Jindal (R-LA), and Anthony Weiner (D-NY). If passed, this legislation would require employers to make reasonable accommodation for an employee’s religious practice or observance, such as holy days (e.g. 7th-day Sabbath observances).
Other supporters of the bill include Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) and Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA).
This is exactly why we need separation of church and state. Here, “St Pious” Rick, along with his in bred breed of co-conspirators, which btw, includes CAIR, seeks to force US employers to accommodate all religious holidays, and sabbath days, for all it’s employees. This is not the business “St” Rick, nor “Rabbi” Wiener. Nor CAIR. The employment contract is between the employer, and the employee.
Rick Santorum supports govt interference into private lives, and private contracts. I don’t. Rick Santorum is for big brother govt, I am not.
Today, Obama is attempting to force employers, ie Catholic institutions, to provide contraceptives. On the other side of the coin, we have “St Pious” Rick attempting to force employers to accommodate employees for all their various holy days, and holidays.
Let’s see, muslims will need prayer mats, and paid break time for all calls to prayer. Then employers will have to provide foot baths. And, how long does Ramadan last? 30 days? Will this be a paid thirty days forced upon the employer?
If you can’t see the wrongness of such govt interference, as we see in Obama’s contraceptives rule, and Santorum’s pet legislation, then you belong at DU.
