Top insurer forces employees to study Buddhist teachings

Just in case our Uncooperative Readers and Uncooperative Listens of our radio show haven't noticed; we are an equal opportunity critic of all; even Buddha.

From worldnetdaily

A former Prudential Insurance manager is preparing legal action against the company, claiming she was fired after blowing the whistle on mandatory Eastern religious exercises that included chanting the Hindu mantra "om" in darkened rooms.

Prudential Insurance Co.'s southern California real estate division also required managers to read a Buddhist book, charges the Christian ex-employee, whose name has been withheld pending formal action.

The former manager's lawyer, Richard Ackerman of Ackerman Cowles & Associates, has written a letter to Prudential demanding the company stop requiring participation in the religious practices and warning he has been retained to pursue claims of religious discrimination, "hostile environment" and harassment against his client that led to her termination.
Ok this is over the top. I believe in freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. But I certainly do not believe in "FORCED RELIGION". Where is the ACLU? ooohhh I forgot, they only go after Christians. lol
