The Political Agitator’s response: If she do not want to do what is required of her, then it is simply just time to resign and go to another job.

I have no problem with what one believe in however there is a difference in beliefs and job duties. We know what the bible says about same sex marriage but when working for someone else you better know what the business policies and procedures are because they are in control. You can be ignant about it if you like but when they reprimand you, you need to know you had options.
