For people that claim there is no war against religion, this story should open their eyes, and either acknowledge the war is being conducted or sit down and shut up.
A 20 year Army veteran, who worked at a Stockton, California hospital for 10 years, has been suspended from his job, found his Dameron Hospital lock combinations and his computer password changed because of the unpardonable sin of signing his emails with “God Bless America,” according to Pacific Justice Institute, or PJI, who is representing him.
A letter from PJI Staff Attorney Matthew McReynolds to the hospital’s chief nursing officer, Janine Hawkins, argued the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the California Fair Employment and Housing act bar workplace discrimination on the basis of religion.
“In light of the widespread dissemination of a plethora of philosophical statements among hospital employees and management, the directive that Mr. Hawks delete ‘God Bless America’ is indefensible,” McReynolds said.
He explained that the hospital ordered the censorship, and when Hawks complied, he said he wanted to consult with legal counsel.
That apparently, according to the hospital, constituted “insubordination.”
For those as outrageous as this writer is, the contact information for the Dameron Hospital is listed below.
