any true muslim has to go pray 5 times a day and would disrupt the service to my clients and if you think i am wrong, I have had muslim men working for me in the past and it is disruptive. Sorry but the racist argument does not apply here at all. I have to stay in my demographic to be competitive in the market I am in. Muslim is not a race it's a religion and not my preference. Go ahead and practice your religion but not on my dime.

Well said mate
You are completely correct. Im sure many of us would hire the sexy blonde with absolutely no credential (or sense), rather than the old chubby woman with loads of experience. Figuratively speaking of course...
But is it right for the church to have a seperate law to every other organisation? Just as a comparisonn, my organisation would never be allowed to do something like this (legally), despite the beliefs of our head of department. Just like we wouldnt be allowed to discriminate on basis of religious preference...is it right for them to have their own set of rules?
the church is suppose to be a servant of the people, not an arbitrary master.

You do realize we're not discussing a church turning away single moms or homosexuals, right? We're discussing a church not hiring single moms or homosexuals.
Like you, I would expect a church to offer hope, help, and salvation to everyone, especially those in need. But that is a different critter from offering them employment in the church. I would gladly throw a few bucks to a bum on the street corner, but that doesn't mean I would offer them a job as a receptionist or accountant.
