I'd do some looking.

Hope it works out for you. This kind of thing is no fun.
No I work in NYC !

One of my boss constantly says "Jesus this and Jesus that" bla bla "Jesus", "God", "Lord" etc. which is quite annoying. During Christmas he puts Christian and gospel music even in front of Jewish and Hindu employees... Disrespectful. Forget to mention all those bible quotes everywhere! Thanksgiving dinner will take place at a church hall... Gahh

What should I do?!
Are you working at the Vatican?
I can't imagine such a thing.

Of course he does. This is Jews for Jesus/Nunnor/JuliganO/RiverEdge+all the other names back again. He always pops up on the NJ forum first then he comes here.

I think the OP has walked the plank since there has been no posts in three days anywhere on CD from them.

When I read stuff like this, I am glad for my upbringing under are pretty much Brit influence. Even in SA under the old regime which could have been considered christian, people did/do not pry into political or religious affiliations.

When I embraced theism, I was pretty vocal about it (if the opportunity presented itself) or folk would pick up me reading a bible in my break times and ask whatever. I never ever brought up the topic myself esp at work. Of course at one stage I too had the religious posters but these were props to self identify.

Looking back, it is easy to pretend you are xian as all you have to do is play along. Being a fool and agreeing when these types diss gays and other races however will for the most part be unpalatable for any non believer.

The only person that ever did me in in business was a woo that insisted that all his employees be born again xians. He lied and offered me a million budget for one year to set up a division with his business where I was an expert in. That lasted 4 months and I gave up security of a division I ran at another company where my religious views were of no consequence. This woo's business was already in the death throes of bankruptcy and I was the goose that was supposed to lay magical golden eggs to rescue it.

Looking back I should have done proper due diligence but one tends to think there is some kind of "brotherly trust". No there is not, they are all out to look out for number one. All the props are merely smoke and mirrors to hide what they really are.

Ironically, the one person that trusted me, a complete stranger and supplied me with 2000+ worth of goods with only a blank cheque as a guarantee I would pay him cash later was a muslim. I paid him cash as promised and a lasting friendship resulted plus I sent him a lot of new business. Funny that - no?

A friend of mine jumped in with both feet and began discussing science/evolution with our immediate supervisor. Of course, I knew better than to ever try such a foolish thing.
Supervisor's response: I can prove religion, you all can't prove (science)
But then again, I work at the Post Office, so anyone with any educational level can go in to management.

When I was in the U.S. Army I experienced quite a bit of this from commanders, platoon sergeants, etc. My best advice would be to keep your thoughts to yourself, unless those religious ideal begin to affect your employment. In that case, I would start raising hell. It's almost never a good idea to discuss these things. Ignore it, and just keep doing your job.
