    Sorry Officer Manuel Torres, but you are 100% wrong. While nobody fully supports a private citizen on private property denying anyone service for any reason more than I do, when you take a position working for the government, you surrender your beliefs and constitutional rights while on the job.

    A government employee cannot deny someone for any reason. All citizens are fully entitled to equal access and equal services from the government. Without exception.

    Does this include the president?

    If somebody's religious views keep them from doing their job, they need to find a new job.

    Also, this is called the Billy Graham rule because there is no biblical basis for it

    In your private life...you are 100% correct. But in your capacity as a government employee, you surrender those rights while on the job.

    I do not think anyone is saying that, we are saying we do not think his grievance is legit.

    I would take it a step further, public or private, if your religion keeps you from doing your job, you need to find a new job. It is not the employers responsibility to change things to accommodate your religious views.

    that all depends on what your job is,,,and in this case it doesnt effect his job as a cop,,,

    and with all the rabid feminist out there a man is better off if he doesnt put himself in a position like this

    People give up a lot of things to practice religion. You are supposed to make the sacrifice...not force it on others
