Home Depot Employee Fired For Wearing God Button

The Anti-God folks are at it again as Christian bashing is getting to be a big sport in America these days. In South Florida, a Home Depot cashier was fired for refusing to remove his "One Nation Under God" button.

It just so happens that he had been wearing it for one year with no objections, then one day brought his Bible to work with him to read on his own time and his manager objected to the button, telling Trevor it was against company "dress code." This is a red herring if I ever did see one.

  • "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. Here's the story
The chap has an attorney who is filing a lawsuit against Home Depot. Good job, Trevor, for being salt and light. Meanwhile, I will not be shopping at Home Depot again until they reinstate Trevor with all lost pay and wearing his "God" button. Let Home Depot know how you feel about this with an email or phone call.

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16

  1. Glad to see he is hiring an attorney. If those Christian martyrs back in the day had attorneys there would be no stories of boiling in oil or thousands of arrows. And they could go back to their jobs as clerks at Home Depot.
