3 Worse Things Than Getting Fired From Your Job Due To Your Religious Beliefs

We have selected our final entry to our challenge to readers to provide us with bad news, which comes from blogger List Of X, who recently wrote a funny entry on Mitt Romney math you should check out. List Of X also challenged us to provide a blog idea for the List of X blog, so since you like the letter “X”, here you go, Listy: 10 Ridiculous Words Using The Letter “X” Authorized By The Official Scrabble Dictionary. You’re welcome!

Now to the news story. U.S. News and World Report reports that a man was fired by a police department because he wouldn’t trim his beard, which his religion forbids cutting. This is bad news, and we hope the parties involved can work it out in a way that allows the man to practice his religion.

In the mean time, while it may be difficult to make anyone in such a situation feel better, it still could be worse, so here are 3 Worse Things Than Getting Fired From Your Job Due To Your Religious Beliefs:

1. Getting fired from your job as a police officer due to your religious beliefs conflicting with your uniform, sadly leaving the station, forgetting you are still wearing the uniform, and then getting charged with theft of the uniform.

2. Getting fired from your job as a police officer due to your religious beliefs conflicting with your uniform, sadly leaving the station, forgetting you are still wearing the uniform, and then getting charged with breaking the commandment “Thou Shall Not Steal” by a man in the street.

3. Getting fired from your job as a police officer due to your religious beliefs conflicting with your uniform, sadly leaving the station, forgetting you are still wearing the uniform, and then witnessing a theft of True Religion Brand jeans right off the legs of a man in the street. Then the pant-less man says “Police-Dude, help me out, someone just stole my jeans!” And you can’t arrest anyone – not because you’re not a police officer, but because the jean thief is a thoroughbred horse, who likes True Religion jeans because they have horseshoe logos on the pockets, and there’s no law saying a citizen can arrest a horse, even if they could catch one.
