An investigator found ground's for Cacy Cantwell claims that he was fired for being an atheist. Cantwell was working as a manager for Maine Contract Farming, a subsidiary of DeCoster, Maine's largest brown egg producer.
Cantwell, who was provided housing he shared with a non-married partner, two of his children and three of her children, said he was criticized by DeCoster, a devout Christian, who didn't approve of the living arrangement.
On another occasion, DeCoster brought up God in a conversation, and Cantwell responded by saying he was an atheist and didn't believe in God.
Cantwell told the investigator that DeCoster put his hand on his shoulder and told him: "I can't have someone like you here. We might need to part ways.
Believe in god is essential to brown egg production, everyone knows that. They should of demanded a Christian loyalty pledge when they first hired him. Those poor little brown eggs.
But seriously - being fired for your lack of faith happens. Just like getting your ass kicked for a snarky bumper sticker.
