ARTICLE : Religious Persecution
A while ago I had a sign up at work in my cubicle saying "Meditation,
Think About It". It was a cheap sign just made on the printer and was
torn off several times. I then brought in a small lotus flower. This
went over fairly well until they found out it had religious significance.
Most recently I had the Om (from Windows ?Wingdings) going across my
screen on the marquee screen-saver. My supervisor proactively told me to
turn it off saying it was unprofessional.
I'd like to know how some of you have dealt with Christian Nazis.
I respect Jesus, but don't worship him. I don't want to have to get
obnoxious or use the law either.
At the same time, my three co-workers (including the supervisor) all have
their religious symbols, but if I put of anything its unprofessional.
I know Christianity is exclusionary, although most aren't militant in
putting down other religions. With my Christian background, whenever we
get into a Bible debate, I categorically prove that their point of view is
incorrect and/or they are not obeying the Bible - so that's stopped.
I just want to have something little and nice and silly at work.
