A court has backed US retail giant Wal-Mart for sacking an anti-gay worker who claimed she was a victim of discrimination for being a Christian.
Tanisha Matthews was fired from her job as an overnight stocker at a store in Joliet, Illinois, in 2005 after a lesbian co-worker named only as Amy filed a complaint against her.
Amy claimed that during a break, Ms Matthews had screamed “over her” that God does not accept gays, that they should not exist, that they would go to hell and that they are not “right in the head”.
Five other employees confirmed that Ms Matthews said gays would go to hell and are sinners.
Ms Matthews was fired for violating Wal-Mart’s anti-harassment policies but claimed she had been discriminated against for her race and religion.
