    So, Atheists in Wisconsin (note the capital A), a religious group have in fact gained a form of Shira Law against other religions.

    How bigoted of them.

      "Protected class membership means a group of natural persons, or a natural person, who may be categorized because of their ability to satisfy the definition of one or more of the following groups or classes: sex, race, religion or nonreligion, color, national origin or ancestry, citizenship status, age, handicap/disability, marital status, source of income, arrest record or conviction record, less than honorable discharge, physical appearance, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic identity, political beliefs, familial status, student, domestic partner, or receipt of rental assistance.

      No surprise that the story is only partially told. There is an existing list of people who cannot be discriminated against because of what they believe or who they are. They just got around to adding atheists to the list.

      Even by Faux News standards that nonsense was remarkable. Where does that hostility towards Christianity come from, that you might want to discriminate in terms of hiring - their example to hire pilots on the basis of their believing in hell, this is another example of Christianity and Jews being attacked, etc.

      MM - do you get paid more by Fox if you post the most inane **** that they come out with?

        Headline to the NPR article you cited...
        Madison, Wis., Council Votes To Ban Discrimination Against Atheism


        How is Nitwit Pinko Radio's emphasis any different than Faux News' emphasis?

        While it can be taken for granted that the Mountain Sage never reads, much less comprends, any of the articles he posts... How did you miss the headline?

        As an added bonus... Cite the constitutional provision authorizing government to establish "protected classes" of citizens?

        Double bonus question... How can government establish protected classes of citizens without violating the due process rights of unprotected classes?

          Triple bonus question...

          Could this law be used to force me to hire this person as my receptionist and be the public "face" of my company?



          Could it be used to force me to hire this guy as a chaplain?



          Or hire this as a swimsuit model?

            Sadly yeah doc.

            The city I live in has made laws to force employment of side show freaks. That was pretty much when I gave up and sold my business. I just didn't want to deal with the bs that the city government wanted to foist on me.

              It was bound to happen, TAG; everybody else is doing it, so why not them? However, you're way off track with the "sharia" comment, since atheists don't follow any form of religious law. The state does, and Christians, Jews and Muslims do, but not atheists.

                After failing to read the headline of your linked NPR article, did you also fail to read the first two sentences?

                In what is believed to be a first in the United States, the Common Council of Madison, Wis., has voted to amend the city's equal opportunities ordinance "to add nonreligion as a protected class."

                The legislation adds atheists to the categories of people who could potentially face discrimination.

                  None of which contradicts what I said does it? Disagreeing with it is one thing, but the tone of the story was presented in an entirely loaded and inaccurate manner.

                      Your maturity never ceases to impress. Trying growing up a bit.

                      The coverage of the story was ridiculous and inaccurate in that it sought to portray it as an attack on Christians and Jews, atheists getting special treatment, blah, blah. Nothing that you posted contradicts what I said initially - and if the best that you can do is the quote above then I will leave it here. Or are you able to contradict what I said?

                        People should be hired on merit. If the person can do the job they apply for they get hired, regardless of anything else.

                            I can tell he's never owned a business.

                            Del, lets say I opened my woodworking business to the general pubic and some people wanted me to craft them some s&m crap. Should I be forced to make the stuff?

                            Second point. I chose who to hire and when to hire, what hours they work and how many. This is my right. Otherwise why own a business? Charity? No. I start a business to make money.

                            If someone wants to work for me they have to conform to my standards. (Both in dress and demeanor.)

                            Otherwise I won't hire them...

                              Actually, I'm not. One part of Sharia is that Islam is the only religion, all others get taxed or run out of town.
                              That is pretty much how Atheists generally operate. All other religions are forced from public view, or run out of town. If the Atheists can, they will get government to put onerous restrictions on them and even tax them.
