Later in the day, while they were on break, the old woman asked everyone to say what they did for Easter, and they all when around the room and told their stories. When it came to my husbands turn, he simply said "I didn't really do anything." and the old woman walked up to him, put her face in his face and said "Now, why is that?". My husband replied and said "Well, I am non-religious, and I don't really celebrate religious holidays." The old woman's face turned very red and she stormed out of the room.

A few comments.
I have some problems with this story. Some of this has been mentioned in other posts, some not.
1. Easter is this week, not last week. So why would they be asking, "what did you do for Easter?", when it hasn't happened yet? (Maybe they asked, "what are you doing for easter?".)
2. As mentioned this is probably not an "NRA call center", but a third party vendor center. My company has both internal customer service centers, manned by actual corporate employees, and external vendors. If it's third party, my guess is you would not come under any requirements to join the NRA or to have a particular religious belief. As a private organization the NRA can do that for it's actual employees (sort of), but not contractors (although I have never heard of it). Even if they did require those contract companies employees who handle the NRA account to "join the NRA", the contract company should move any employees who don't wish to join to a different contract. My company does not require anything like that of our contract vendor employees. Not that they use our products or anything, just that they meet our performance standards. It was mentioned there were several other divisions or sections of the center? Why risk a lawsuit when you could just move the employee?
3. I am currently a corporate trainer and train employees in both our company's internal centers and employees of vendor centers. As such I am REQUIRED to abide by all Civil Liberties Laws and HR regulations, or I could lose my job. I interact with all sorts of people with all sorts of beliefs and have never encountered a problem nor pushed an employee to belief one way or another. In addition it is HIGHLY discouraged by our HR and legal teams to go in to discussions of politics, religion, etc.. I am not saying it doesn't happen, but I am real careful if discussions go that way, even during breaks or just between other employees. To many issues can arise if someone becomes "offended". So at the very least this trainer was HIGHLY UNPROFESSIONAL, if not down right breaking their companies own policies. You probably have grounds to file a lawsuit against the vendor. But not probably not the NRA. In fact, I would contact the NRA and inform them of what is going on. At best they look for another vendor, at worst they blow you off and/or say, "yeah, that's how we roll!". As someone above mentioned, I would be VERY surprise if the NRA, as law savy as they are, and with the image of, "protecting freedom", would require this. Yes they are very conservative.
Finally, and this is just personal experience. I find that when employees say, "I was fired for this" or " I was fired for that", it turns out to be something all together different. Not saying this is the case here, but this story just seems a bit "off" to me.edit on 3-4-2012 by SrWingCommander because: grammer
