Trump Admin Sues Grocery Giant Kroger Over Firing Of Two Staffers Who Refused To Wear “Rainbow” On Apron

Again religious people wanting special privilege to advertise their religious beliefs by not wearing the store uniform.   Really it is about their wanting others to know how holy they are.   It has little to do with the LGBTQ+ because the heart is not a rainbow.   The US government is joining the side of two people who want the god given right to be assholes to a segment of the population, to disregard laws and discriminate freely against those they dislike.   Can we say 1950 amem.   Hugs

Trump Admin Sues Grocery Giant Kroger Over Firing Of Two Staffers Who Refused To Wear “Rainbow” On Apron

NBC News reports:

The complaint was filed Monday by the  EEOC on behalf of Brenda Lawson, 72, and Trudy Rickerd, 57, who both worked at a Kroger store in Conway, Arkansas, for several years before being fired last spring.

The two women were allegedly disciplined and eventually terminated after they refused to wear new aprons issued last April that featured an embroidered rainbow heart on the top left portion of the bib.

The lawsuit states that both women “believe in the literal interpretation of the Bible” and “hold a sincerely held religious belief that homosexuality is a sin.” Lawson and Rickerd both, it continued, each “believed wearing the logo showed her advocacy of the [LGBTQ] community, which she could not do.”

There is more at the link above and I think it is time we worry about the white supremacist Christian takeover of the US government.   Hugs

    • Doesn’t surprise me, making that leap. I had some white canvas shoes that I couldn’t clean up anymore and decided to paint them over with stripes to make them rainbow. Had a couple girls in a class take one look at them and tell me I was gonna burn in hell for being a lesbian. I just looked at them and said “I like colorful stuff and rainbows are of every color.” They just made a dumb assumption.
      Makes me wonder if when they see a rainbow outside, they run inside and close the blinds so the sky no longer offends them.

      • Hello Chatty Introvert. Thank you for the story. I have often wondered how they can think their deity is so supremely powerful as to create an entire universe while being timeless and all knowing, yet also petty enough to worry most about what evolved primate is put what body part into what other primate body parts at what time in their super short existence, or if they touch certain parts at all. That makes no sense because only a small petty god would worry about sexual matters it can not be involved with. A bodiless god has no parts to play with. So of all the physical needs going on this petty small god is interested most in the one his followers are tied up with most? If the god is so large and powerful, so timeless and needless, then why would it even care about the insignificant fungus called humanity spreading across one small planet in such a large expanding universe. Again without any desire or body parts why would such a being care about if a primate does what most of the rest of nature does with no qualms? Again why does it matter? it matters only to the segment of the population that thinks it is icky. So it is not god’s will but their will not do have to think about the icky thing. Also it is about property rights over others bodies, but again is their god so small and petty to need one primate to own another and gain money from their violation? Hugs


    • Hello Nan. I think the LGBTQ+ should sue for cultural appropriation. After that is what people are doing to each other these days right? You wear something great looking but belongs to a “culture” not normally yours, it is called cultural appropriation and those easily offended take great pains to tell you why it is wrong. I think it is flattering that someone likes your culture.

      But this whole rainbow thing is part of the rigorous rights attempt to enshrine the right to discriminate against anyone they dislike. To get themselves exempt from laws requiring equal treatment of all people. Assholes. I don’t care what gods they pray to or what their god has to say, but I do care that they don’t set themself up as above everyone else. Hugs
