Getcher Race Special Beliefs Card Right Here!

one for everyone!

Here’s how it is in Jolly Ol’…

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) warns employers that they risk ‘potentially costly legal action’ unless they allow staff to follow their ‘religion or belief rights’ in the workplace.

Belief rights, eh?

This could include giving believers time off to go on pilgrimages, such as druids and pagans going to Stonehenge, while environmentalists should be free to lecture other staff about their car use.

That oughta go well.

Vegetarian kitchen workers could refuse to do tasks that offend their beliefs, such handling meat. …[or refusing] to clean out fridges if they contain meat …

They why would you choose such a job?

It has been issued in the wake of the landmark European Court of Human Rights ruling that Christians may wear a cross at work.

But rather than focusing on Christian rights in the workplace – which it insists are still strictly limited – the controversial quango suggests employers should give equal respect to fringe and non-religious groups.

The guidance is likely to be seen as an insult by some Christians and other religious observers as it appears to put lifestyle choices like vegetarianism on a par with their deeply-held spiritual beliefs…

But in other areas it suggests the Strasbourg court ruling could have a wide-ranging impact on the right of employees to express their religion and beliefs at work.

That’s a Right, now?

It says employers can refuse to consider a request if they suspect a belief is not sincerely held, but warns: ‘An employer should only question a belief in the most exceptional cases’.

Yeah – that’ll happen.

Last night an EHRC spokesman said: ‘The Commission does not make the law on what is or isn’t a legitimate religion or belief. This is set by Parliament.

Parliament makes The Law on what is or is not a legitimate religion or belief.

Ohferfuxake.

My suggestion: keep it to yourself, choose your work accordingly, plan your vacations accordingly, live your f’n dream and don’t bother me with it.

    …don’t bother me with it isn’t going to happen when the futhermuckers live for this stuff; remember Progs aren’t happy unless there is something to complain about, and on the road to Utopia, there is always something not good enough for them.
    Then why would you choose such a job?

    Because I can bitch about it, and protest, and sue, and strike, and whinge, and throw paint and flop my titties and…and…
    raise awareness. So there.

    One more step towards the one world religion and government as predicted in Revelation.

    Prophecy continues to play out.

    What folks need to consider is are they willing to die for religious belief. That may be a bit in the future, or maybe not, but it IS coming. Also predicted in Revelation.

    And it doesn’t matter if you believe one word of it. It is coming anyway.

    Eternity.

    Smoking, or non-smoking?

    The choice is yours.

    Amen, Claire.

    The corollary:
    One must conspicuously display a badge that identifies one’s religion.
    You know, like a yellow six-pointed star for Jews.
