Kentucky Bank Teller Sues US Bank Because She Was Fired For Bible Thumping To Customers

Evil Prayers

 

A Walton, Kentucky woman is suing US Bank for firing her after she was repeatedly warned to stop proselytizing to bank customers during work hours and asking them if they’d accepted Jesus Christ as their personal savior.

In a Code of Ethics violation, US Bank states that customers had complained numerous times that Polly Neace talked to them about their salvation, and asked questions like “Do you take the Lords name in vain” and ended every transaction with “have a blessed day”

That Code of Ethics Violation warns Neace that ‘effective immediately you will no longer discuss the subject of faith or religion with customers and co-workers alike’.

‘I was upset with the fact they were stifling me and not allowing me to act on my beliefs. I can’t back down from this. It’s the principle behind everything,’ Neace said.

U.S. Bank says that they aren’t willing to back down either and are willing to fight.

‘At U.S. Bank, we hold our employees to high ethical standards when interacting with customers and co-workers, and take violations of these standards seriously,’ the bank said in a statement.

‘While we cannot comment provide comment on pending litigation, we believe that this lawsuit is without merit and believe the facts presented in future legal proceedings will justify our actions.’

Here we go……..

Employer: Please stop violating our policies and procedures.

Employee: No

Employer: Please stop violating our policies and procedures.

Employee: No

Employer: You’re fired.

Employee: MY RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IS BEING OPPRESSED!

This is the can of worms SCOTUS opened up with the Hobby Lobby ruling.  But then again they did say that only Corporations have religious protections under the constitution.

America is fucked.
