Professor Benjamin Bratman commented on a local woman’s suit against an employer that required her to take religious training sessions as part of her employment. According to her suit, the woman worked successfully as for the bathroom remodeling company, but when she refused to continue attending the training, the company forced her out. Professor Bratman said that once the burden shifts to the company to explain its actions, it would have a difficult time explaining why the religious training is necessary to the company’s operation. “What in the world does religious proselytizing and religion have to do with remodeling bathrooms?”
