Librarians and Religion

A federal district court ruled in favor of a Christian librarian who was fired after she requested to have Sundays off because of her religious beliefs.

No matter what your religion is--Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Scientology, Eckankar, whatever--how would you like to work for this library? It's another indication of the longstanding problem with the quality of people who have gravitated to positions of authority in libraries.

According to an earlier story, the library had no problem with staffing on Sundays after the librarian was fired, so why the problem accommodating her beliefs?

This is apparently the website of the Rolling Hills Consolidated Library in Missouri, for what it's worth. Where are the email links for the staff members? And let's get rid of all those dead links, Rolling Hills--and work on removing your dead ideas and discriminatory policies as well.
