I am sitting at an inservice at my job and breakfast was prepared for us. As we were all about to get up to eat one of the employees stands up and asks if we could have Mr. ________ say a prayer before we eat. She also "excused her feeling of necessaty for the prayer because some people don't like it but she just had to." So, Mr. __________ asked everybody to bow there heads in prayer. Everybody did that I could see except for me looking around the room at all the followers and thinking this is terrible.
I have a question. Has there been any laws that prevents this type of "at work" display of social behavior towards spiritual direction? It is a lot different when a person performs their own personal direction of spirit, asking the entire group of employees to take part in their defined social behavior toward spiritual direction is another. This should be illegal. Can my fellow Atheist Nexus members shed some ideas on how to fight this?
