THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Macy’s recently fired employee, Natalie Johnson, had refused to let a transgender customer use the women’s dressing room stating her Christian beliefs prevents it. She reportedly said the trans woman was a man in make-up wearing women’s clothes. Her manager told her she needed to comply with Macy’s policy to allow trans people to use either room. An altercation ensued (I’m not sure if it was before or after the manager told her what to do) involving fellow customers, the manager and the woman. The employee was let go.
But Macy’s isn’t out of the woods. They’re being sued by a Christian legal group, Liberty Council. They want the store’s LGBT policy changed — they say it violated the employee’s Christian beliefs. The organizations works on behalf of employees who believe their religious convictions resulted in wrongful terminations.
We ought to show our support for Macy’s in this matter since they stood up for us.
