Charge: Office Depot Refused Christian Print Job

Office Depot is being accused of refusing to print a flyer for an Illinois woman because of its Christian content.

“We suggest that you consider what your position would be if our client were black and your employees refused service because of her race,” said a letter to Office Depot Chairman Roland C. Smith from Thomas Olp of the Thomas More Society, which is representing the woman.

“In that case it would not be hard to see how unreasonable that refusal of service would be. The public accommodation laws do not give any greater leeway for refusal of service when a customer’s religious expression motivates the refusal. … Our laws welcome religion and religious expression, treat it fairly and equally, and do not permit its marginalization or silencing.”

Multiple WND telephone calls and emails to Office Depot headquarters were not returned.
