Selling At Work
Public servants should not be permitted to wear religious symbols at work, Why?

- We don’t allow political buttons because those buttons are intended to intimate and bully customers. Ditto religious symbols.
- Doctors want to wear crucifixes to advertise their political positions on euthanasia, birth control, abortion, rape and homosexuality. If you are gay, a crucifix might as well be a swastika. It means You don’t deserve to live. The motivation is intimidation.
- Day care workers want to wear crucifixes to encourage their young charges to become Catholic. The intent is get the children to transfer affection from the teacher to Catholicism.
- In countries where immigrants hail from, these displays may be taken as a request for a bribe on the part of this church.
- If a corporation wanted a uniform or corporate dress code without religious symbols, nearly everyone would say corporations have that right. Why not the civil service?
- Doctors and nurses are not supposed to wear watches or jewelry of any kind because bacteria accumulate in the cracks. I suppose it would be reasonably safe if they wore religious symbols under clothing next to the skin, well away from patients.
- You unnecessarily provoke conflicts, say by allowing a Jewish tax agent to wear a kippa (beanie) and Muslim citizens perceive he is mistreating them, even when he is not.
