This stuff just makes me crazy.

Lawsuit claims clinic practiced religious harassment

Two former employees of a Puyallup-area pediatric clinic contend in a federal court lawsuit that they were pressured to participate in prayers and subjected to other forms of religious harassment by clinic officials.

Lexi Foster, a medical assistant and Buckley resident, and Vergel Worrell, a nurse living in Tacoma, say in the civil complaint that nursing managers at Woodcreek Pediatrics openly prayed, that prayer often was held at staff meetings and that "employees who didn't participate in the prayers were told they were not team players."


The suit says Foster was pressured to attend church and was told "that she was going to hell and would lead other employees to hell through her poor example," and that both plaintiffs repeatedly were forced by the director of nursing to pray with her.

The complaint says the nursing director told Worrell that he was "Satan himself" and "had to be a born-again Christian to end up in the kingdom of God and that if he did not convert his mother that she would go to hell."

I've lived around churches my entire life, and I don't even know of a single instance at any of those churches where an employee would be treated like this, let alone a supposedly secular place of business.
Just utter bullcrap.

Reminds me of Amway. The only way to win is by conning the most people to join.
