Only in Mexico

30 Jan

The president of my company sends out a daily e-mail with a Bible verse and Catholic lesson… and a prayer to “La Virgen”.

Why do I get the feeling that in the United States, this would result in a company-wide lawsuit?

Sometimes I’m not sure which country is weirder.

    I find myself thinking the same thing, especially when the teachers at the public school my kiddies attend, take them to Mass, just because.

    Interesting! Would definitely cause an uproar elsewhere

    Yeah…that would be pretty controversial anywhere else!

    I agree. Sometimes I think running away to mexico isnt such a bad idea. LOL.

    I think its weird in both countries. On the one hand, the US is way to politically correct… who cares if someone sends out a religious bulletin? I mean, you can either bin it or read it.

    On the other, I hate how there are seemingly no equal opportunity employment acts here… have you seen all the ads asking for ‘attractive under 30 female’ for office jobs? Ridiculous.

      definitely seen a lot of those employment ads!

      My company has a “Gender Equality Certification”, so that’s progress 🙂

    Oh yea, that wouldn’t fly. The other day my coworker told me if I wanted a baby I could come over to her house and pray about it. I was like “or I could just stop taking the pill?”

    I was surprised when I started my job at the hospital [in 2010], they say a prayer over the speaker system every morning and mass is offered for anyone each afternoon. I suppose it’s because we’re a private, non profit hospital?

    Wow, “virgin” and prayer. Definite lawsuit in the USA.
