The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is suing a home service and repair company in Greensboro, North Carolina, for firing two employees who refused to participate in Christian prayer meetings. A video that went viral in September 2020 appears to show the owner of Aurora Pro Services (APS), Oscar Lopez, in the act of firing one of his employees.
“Beware of Aurora Pro Services,” said Hueston Lackey in the caption of the video, posted Sept. 8, 2020. “They are forcing their employees to participate in prayer and Scripture reading (not that there’s anything wrong with prayer and Scripture) and if you choose not to, they fire you. This is exactly how you give Christianity/good Christians a bad name. Just [because] someone works for you doesn’t mean you can force your religion on them (not to mention it’s your protected right of choice).”
