Would you tolerate people harrass someone in the office because she was muslim?

I suppose you would. I mean, 'do not judge', right?

And still you avoid the point:

Jer's not harassing anyone in the workplace, of any religion or non-religion.

Oh, my.....
Lets try this one more time. If you behaved at the workplace the way you behave here, you'd get fired. Simple.

If you seek out Christians and start calling their God a monster, and suggesting they are no different than a Westboro Baptist fringe group, or compare then to nazis, you would get fired. No one wants people like that at the workplace. Likewise, it you harass muslims because of their faith, or jews, mormons etc, you'd get fired.

How is this so complicated?

Can you answer my question now? Would you tolerate it?

It's not complicated. People come here to this public message board, which was set up for people to discuss Christianity, in order to discuss Christianity. This is the place for that. Got it now?

Very simple.

Same would be true for people who harass their muslim co-workers by calling allah a monster and insisting their beliefs make them just like terrorists. That would be exactly the same thing.

I have never seen an environment Laura Hurt is describing, so I can't comment on that specifically. From my personal experience, pretty much the opposite is true.
You haven't been around much. I was born in that environment (gulf coast Alabama). What Laura describes is commonplace. Cars fly American flags and "Jesus Saves" stickers constantly. You would have to fire virtually your whole work force. Then your business would get banned by good "Christians" like you.

I've stated that both evangelists and German Nazis chose the same kind of leaders. I can provide the comparison for you again if YOU haven't got the message. You like to claim no one gets "your" message don't you.

Maybe its because we've seen "your" message too often in our own lives and it make us sick.

I have been around long enough, and lived in enough States to know the claim is bogus.

You feel sick, because you allow anger and resentment control your mind.

It must be terrible to live like that.

Seek the Lord, and find rest.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble of heart; and you will find rest. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

Apparently, he is insulted because his beliefs of hell are no different than what others believe. Shaking his religious tree and yelling wolf, doesn't really concern me. His and Westboro Baptists beliefs in an eternal hell for all those that do not believe as they do, doesn't belong in the work place and should be left outside the gates of employment. And, yes, people do put their beliefs on others in the work environment, contrary to his opinion. I have experienced it firsthand multiple times, especially from those who are fanatics about what it is that everyone should believe or else.

You are correct and never would, although I have been a mediator for those who had a dispute; and I never fired anyone based on having a different opinion. What Mr. Jarber is doing - is making it about himself or others with his pious and self-righteous attitude and demeanor. Which is nothing more than a hypocritical display of having virtue.
