The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has filed suit against Harlingen Family Dentistry of Texas for firing employees that refused to take Scientology courses, reports the Valley Morning Star.

According to the suit employees were pressured to become involved in the controversial church, and thus subjected to “religious discrimination.”

This situation is not unique. It is not uncommon for professionals such as dentists, doctors or chiropractors, to become Scientologists and then subsequently run their practice based upon its principles and “technology.” This may lead some to essentially evangelize their staff as virtually an article of faith, though such an effort is more likely to be characterized as a means to increase employee efficiency and performance.

What is Scientology, a faith or a business? Maybe the EEOC will help to resolve this issue in court.
