Comment 26 by Peter Grant :

Or you should join me in saying, “I don’t care whether his beliefs are based on religion or not, they affect his suitability for the job, and I am going to take them into account.”

Thank you Professor, that is exactly right. As long as we don't discriminate against someone's beliefs because they are religious, discriminating against them because they are stupid is fine.

I'm not sure if this is meant as irony.

As long as we don't discriminate against religious beliefs as opposed to stupid beliefs? Religious beliefs are sensible beliefs and not stupid beliefs?
