You know what? "Freedom to practice your religion", as enshrined in the Constitution, is limited to LAWFUL behavior and does not exempt anyone from ANY laws. If, for example, your religion mandates you sacrifice the life of human being to your deity that wouldn't exempt you from laws forbidding killing someone. Or, if your religion required its adherents to, say, break everybody's windows on your block that wouldn't mean you have any exemption from the laws protecting property that forbid it. The employers rights do not extend to ability to force employees to adopt the practice the employer's religion.
