Judge Rules That Catholic Woman’s Lawsuit Over ‘Ten Commandments’ Badge Can Proceed

You know how some atheists cross out “In God We Trust” on the back of paper money? It’s petty, perhaps, but they’re trying to make a point about church/state separation. But what if they made the argument that they couldn’t use the money because the phrase violated their religious beliefs?

You’d point, laugh, roll your eyes, and tell them to get over it.

That’s the image that went through my mind when I heard about Cynthia Ambrose. The 51-year-old is a devout Roman Catholic who flipped out in the spring of 2011 when the owners of the medical practice she worked at asked all employees to wear name badges that also listed the office rules, known as “Our 10 Commandments,” on the back.

Ambrose said she would wear the badge without that particular title — because there’s only one *true* set of Ten Commandments, of course… — but her bosses gave her a disciplinary notice for “Failure to Comply with new policy and State Law in an unprofessional fashion.” Less than two months later, she was fired for “rescheduling some patients” improperly.

Now, she’s sued her employers claiming they denied her a “reasonable religious accommodation” and fired her in response to her complaining about it.

(Unless I embarrass myself, in which case we’ll pretend like none of this ever happened.) [Read more...]
