Get Some Religion

It’s amazing to me that in this, the early days of the 21st century, when lawyers literally define the boundaries of American culture, that there are people who still make stupid, litigious mistakes at work. Yes, it amazes me.

I was asked at a previous job (by my boss) about whether I had reconciled my sinful lifestyle with Jesus. As if Jesus was the security guard at the front of the building we worked in and I just needed to check in with him as if I had left my security badge at home.

“Yeah, I know it’s a hassle for you, but can you take a minute to help me reconcile my sinful lifestyle with you?” This, in the twisted fantasy version of this, would happen just before any caffeine hit my system, so I would be helpless.

I’m of the opinion that Jesus wouldn’t give a good green shit about my lifestyle (not biting the heads off of baby seals here), but MOSTLY I’m of the opinion that my BOSS would have a TINY bit more knowledge about creating an unsafe workplace with his terribly inappropriate judgement of me! Oddly, I found myself wanting to be judged in the workplace by the quality of my work…I know, call me crazy.

Yes, there’s a place for religion at work. Tucked deeply in your purse, wallet, heart, head, groin, whatever your religious pleasure…keep the hell to yourself and I promise to do the same.

    I disagree. Religion should be in your face, from multiple angles, have lots of deleted scenes, with funny out-takes. Oh wait, that’s how I like my DVDs (porn in particular). My bad.
