fired for not attended church services enough. That kind of firing is pretty unusual for a government office, I would think, it's just that, where Kansas is concerned...I tend to believe it.
It's not just that KS Governor, Sam Brownback, is a pretty notorious hardcore Christian with a disregard for notions of separation of church and state. It's that using religion as a litmus test for establishing that one is the right kind of people goes with some of the voter discrimination nonsense that Kris Kobach has become known for (he calls it anti-fraud--I'm pretty sure making sure the "right people" are voting comes with very definite ideas about who the "right people" are).
Kris Kobach has "scare quoted" religious organizations that have opposite views than his about his particular crusade--as if he doesn't think they're quite Christian enough if they don't share his views. So why not show employment discrimination as well?
(It sort of reminds me of that Bush Administration hiring scandal involving Monica Goodling. It's very ideological and not very appropriate.)
