    intentionally understanding, right?

    There should be no issue and is one only because a bunch of religious nuts are determined to impose their beliefs on their employees in regard to this issue.

    I don't know that there is "all this fuss in the courts" then.  There are some religious fanatics who want to impose their religious beliefs on their employees and they're filing suits in the courts in order to try and accomplish that.  Such suits being filed does not mean they have merit.  Even a few lower courts deciding in their favor here and there (and I don't believe that's yet occurred, but it might have) doesn't mean they have merit.  Cases are overturned all the time because lower courts decided something has merit when it did not.

    However, I believe your confusing "fuss" in the courts with "fuss" being made by the religious fanatics who are desperate to impose their religious beliefs on their employees.

      Suppose I'm a teacher at a Catholic School. also happen to be a lesbian, but my employer doesn't know that. I marry my partner over the summer break (knowing that it's against the teachings of the Catholic Church).  When I come back for the start of the fall semester, I joyfully share the happy news of my nuptials to my supervisor, who promptly proceeds to fire me.

      1) Would you describe this as an example of an employer imposing their religion on others?

      2) If so, would you describe that as "impermissible"?

      3) If you answer yes to both of the above, would you say that's an example of "An employer impermissibly imposing their religion on others"? The thing you earlier said didn't happen and therefore couldn't give me an example b/c it was "impressible".

      Since you said this was "impermissible", are you denying that things like this go on?

      Dammit Jim, I'm a lawyer, not a grammarian. So sue me.
