Macy's Fires Employee Who Banned Transgender Customer From Changing Area

Macy's employee Natalie Johnson was fired this week after the company learned that she banned a transgender shopper from entering the women's changing area.

Natalie says that her religion does not recognize transgender people and when she saw what appeared to be a male heading towards the female changing room she stopped them.

"I had to just be straightforward and tell him, ‘You’re a man,’ and of course that really got him steamed," she says.

Natalie told ABC News:

"I refuse to comply with this policy," and "There are no transgenders in the world. A guy can dress up as a woman all he wants. That’s still not going to make you a woman." And "if you’re a man going into the women’s fitting room, I will kindly escort you to the men’s fitting room.”

I personally don't believe that religious viewpoints have any place in the workplace where employees of varying beliefs must exist as a cohesive unit. Do you think Macy's acted correctly in firing Natalie Johnson for her inability to follow company policies and her blatant disrespect for their customer base?
