WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – A former cashier for The Home Depot who has been wearing a "One nation under God" button on his work apron for more than a year has been fired, he says because of the religious reference. The company claims that expressing such personal beliefs is simply not allowed."I've worn it for well over a year and I support my country and God," Trevor Keezor said Tuesday. "I was just doing what I think every American should do, just love my country."The American flag button Keezer wore in the Florida store since March 2008 says "One nation under God, indivisible."Earlier this month, he began bringing a Bible to read during his lunch break at the store in the rural town of Okeechobee, about 140 miles north of Miami. That's when he says The Home Depot management told him he would have to remove the button.Keezer refused, and he was fired on Oct. 23, he said."It feels kind of like a punishment, like I was punished for just loving my country," Keezer said.A Home Depot spokesman said Keezer was fired because he violated the company's dress code. /quote]
From my story on KP
I'm at the mercy of WMVO on this one, unfortunately. They don't have anyone with a clear enough schedule and experienced enough to handle candidate interviews, which I've had the last two days.I cautioned that my coverage may be hindered by my ability to find a replacement show host. I hate that. I'd rather be there every day covering this. But it looks like I will be back in the Freshwater hearing on Monday, though.
I just saw a post by Clockstopper but can't remember where I saw it with the scheduled dates next month. If someone doesn't post them before I find it again, I'll add that information here later.
This blogger's assessment of Coach Dave is right on target! And funny too!http://www.madrigalmaniac.com/2009/10/29/daubenmire-testifies-at-freshwater-hearing/
The only thing Dave Daubenmire is afraid of is someone turning off the spotlight.
