The criticism goes on to state, “ABC does not have the authority to pressure a professional medical therapy on its workforce towards their will. Even if it did, it ought to give spiritual exemptions to anyone who requests 1.”
In the doc, organized by attorneys Scott J. Street, John W. Howard and Michelle Volk, the plaintiffs declare ABC experienced “no goal basis” to deny the exemptions and hence is guilty of “religious discrimination.”
