Supreme Court declines to hear religious liberty case against Walgreens

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday turned down an appeal by a man fired by Walgreens because as a Seventh-day Adventist he would not work on his church’s Sabbath. Walgreens required that he come in on Saturday for an ’urgent training session’. By declining to hear the case, the Supreme Court lets the firing stand but does not resolve the issue that pits corporate interests against religious liberty.

Actually, neither had their rights violated. He was free to respect his religion's tradition. And the company is free to fire him if they want. He wasn't forced to do anything and they shouldnt be either.

There are PLENTY of jobs out there. If your corporate ass hole boss wants you to come in on a saturday for some bull shit training class give him the finger and get a better job. Religion has nothing to do with it.
