I fully understand Home Depot's view on this. I mean if they let him wear that pin, and someone else wants to wear a politically charged pin, and it becomes a pin battle. It affects sales, moralle, and possibly even public opinion of the store. Plus the store had an existing policy covering it. He was given an opportunity to swap it out for a company provided pin.
He got himself fired.
as for there being more of these "religious persecution" lawsuits. its no more so than the many other frivolous suits. These religious ones are getting air time. The hundred or so "I got kicked out of a store because of a T-Shirt" suits aren't rare enough to make news.
