While I agree that the discrimination that was described in Luci Storelli-Castro’s article, “Why you shouldn’t work for God” is truly unjust, it is wrong to paint every religious organization as discriminatory and wrong.
Not every religious organization discriminates like the Sisters of the Visitation of the Holy Mary did against Mary Rosati. Not every religious organization offers “spoon-fed double standards and hypocrisy” to its parishioners. Storelli-Castro was wrong in making these broad, uninformed statements and if she were to do her research she’d find that most religious organizations do not unjustly discriminate.
According to statistics released by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, of the 2,340 claims of discrimination by a religious organization, only 22.4 percent of those claims were recognized as having “reasonable cause” that discrimination occurred.
I don’t disagree that there are religious establishments that wrongly discriminate; I’m simply pointing out that making generalizations that have no basis and attacking an entire group unfairly is a distortion of what good reporting should look like.
