Over the last decade, as religious diversity has increased the number of employees filing religious discrimination claims against employers have almost doubled.
A typical example is a Jehovah Witness who was fired due to his refusal to work on a war related project that violated his religious beliefs. The company had other projects available that were not war related, but refused to reassign him. The company was sued and lost.
Colossians 4:1 teaches, “Masters, provide your slaves with what is right and fair, because you know that you also have a Master in heaven.”
As Christians, if we desire for our religious freedoms to remain intact, we need to take the lead in respecting the religious views of others, unless it’s a rare occasion that violates our own religious rights.
