Christian Business Sued for 'Religious Discrimination' Over Bible Study?

A Nebraska-based Christian business is being sued for alleged religious discrimination against a prospective employee.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit against the Voss Lighting Company of Lincoln last week on behalf of Edward Wolfe of Oklahoma. According to the suit, Wolfe applied for a job with Voss' Oklahoma office but was not hired because he stated in his interviews that he was unwilling to arrive to work early to attend a Bible study.

In a press release, the EEOC explained that they took up the case because of their belief that Voss' actions were in violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. ...

""Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 has long prohibited a private employer from discriminating against applicants or employees based on their religious beliefs or practices ‚Äď or lack thereof"

Surely there is no provable discrimination here, since the proof they must have is active discrimination of the applicants religious position as reason for rejection.

What the EEOC seem to be doing is setting a precedent where the unhired applicant can use the Bible study question as proof of rejection.

I'm not sure it should even be an issue even if the guy was more qualified. A private business should be able to hire whoever they want. If I want everyone who works in MY company to come to a bible study then I as long as that's part of the deal from the beginning that should be ok.

If, as they say in the article, the person hired had better qualifications, this is a dead issue. It is just disgusting that employers have to be afraid of who they hire or who they don't.
