While Tammy McCoy was outside taking a break, according to the complaint, assistant general manager Kerri Ann Show said she was Christian and then asked McCoy, “what religion are you?” McCoy, who was surprised by the question but answered because Show was her supervisor, responded, “I’m Pagan,” the lawsuit said.

“Show made a face and immediately said, ‘You’re going to hell,’ ” the lawsuit said. The general manager, Lori Dubs, who was standing nearby, “vigorously nodded her head in agreement, her facial expression indicating that she was upset with the plaintiff’s disclosure,” the lawsuit said.

A few days later, McCoy asked Show when the work schedule would be posted. Show answered, “Your hours are being cut until you find God,” the lawsuit said.


According to the lawsuit, McCoy was later told she was going to hell. Reportedly, after she called the corporate human resources office, she and her husband, who worked at the same store, were both fired.

I'll never understand people who pry others for personal information and act personally attacked when they don't like the answer. I get the same shit at work.

They need to educate their ignorant selves because paganism is also a form of religion.

I hope she sues them for discrimination since they want to play mad.

that woman shouldn't have asked that and she shouldn't have answered

People need to realize this "your co-workers are not your friends". Keep it professional, collect your cheques and go home.

If the topic isn't work related, you aren't obligated to entertain it. SMH

That is an illegal question, and just as discriminatory. I am Christian, however others believes have no baring on whether they can do the job. Very sad.

I’ve worked at a small business were everyone was super Christian and was just praying no one would ask me about religion. Everyday was like TD Jakes revival on steroids. I definitely think they would have fired me if the found out I wasn’t Christian. Luckily it was only an internship and I was out in 3 months with a reference.

That has to be exhausting as hell to deal with someone like this. Fuck I look like telling my supe/manager something personal like that? This is plain discrimination at it's finest.

Your place of employment doesn't have a right to ask what your religious beliefs are. Her mistake was disclosing that information but given how close-minded those people were, they may have assumed the worst and discriminated against her anyway. In any case, I hope gets a sizeable payout and those two shouldn't have jobs other than sweeping floors as they clearly are incompetent in managing others and understanding the legal boundaries of their authority.
