From National Review:
The time is growing ripe for opening yet another legal front in the war against intolerance: a defense of woke institutions’ religious employees.
The weapon of choice here is Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the federal law that prohibits workplace discrimination on the basis of “race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.” Under the statute, “religion” is defined to include “all aspects of religious observance and practice, as well as belief.”
I thought of Title VII today while reading a post from Rod Dreher that describes the increasing prevalence of corporate “equality pledges,” some of which ask employees to affirm that “lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender identities are within the spectrum of normal human experience and are not . . . sinful.”
The story includes a screenshot of GMLA’s Heathcare Equality Pledge that all employees are required to sign when they are hired.
