A Clash of Beliefs: The Fallout of a Holiday Party 🎄⚔️

In a surprising turn of events, a simple holiday party became a battleground of beliefs. The boss, trying to maintain an inclusive environment, denied a request to say grace before the meal. This decision, however, didn't sit well with some employees, leading to a mass resignation. Even as the boss's wife tries to mediate, the future of the company hangs in the balance. Let's see what the internet thinks of this holiday hullabaloo... 🍿👀

NTA. Accommodated prayer request, but employees quit over public display disagreement. 😲

"NTA I am a Christian but this is uncool. Prayer doesn’t need to be showy. They can pray silently to themselves before they eat or they can pray outside the meal like you suggested. Blessing the food before eating would not be inclusive. You’re a good boss in this regard, sir." 👏
