A care worker is suing her employer over her work shift; according to an October 20 article in the Telegraph. Celestina Mba believes that, as a Christian, her employer must make a reasonable accommodation for her, and not require her to work on Sundays. Mba is a mother of 3.
Mba is not the only Christian to be defending their position in a court of law. In June, a Kansas Christian group filed suit against the school system; in an effort to prevent the school from teaching evolution to 5 year olds; according to Breitbart.
Critics of Mba believe that it is another potential infringement on the separation of church and state. They look at this as an opportunity for a Christian to render unto Caesar that which belongs to Caesar.
Supporters of Mba believe that her position is supported by the Holy Bible. They refer to God’s call for His people to remember the original and Christian Sabbath (Sunday) and keep them Holy. They also claim that the Bible requires Christians to assemble with one another. Christians assemble and worship on Sunday.
Observers say that a successful lawsuit may lead to more Christians requesting Sunday’s off, and open the floodgates for people of different religions to demand accommodations.
Is Mba correct?
