Week 2 Discussion Notes NKomo Exercise 17 Case 1: Elaine Mobley worked as a social worker with the Virginia Health Department’s child abuse program for two years. Mobley was a member of the nonsectarian Unitarian Universalist Church. During her first six months on the job, she divorced her husband of ten years. Her supervisor, a devout Baptist, encouraged her to discuss her marital problems with a Christian psychotherapist. On a number of occasions, the supervisor encouraged other employees in the deparment who were also Baptists, to convert Mobley. Some employees help prayer meetings at her desk while others gave her the silent treatment. Their attepts to convert Mobley did not stop. Another time she found a hand written note on her desk from Jesus that read, “How can you speak of God and reject me? I love you and know all about you.” Her attendance at work declined because there were days she did not want to face the stress in her work environment. Mobley filed a complaint with the director of the division stating she was being constantly bombarded with efforts to convert her to a Baptist. Shortly thereafter, Molbey was fired from her job. Mobley filed a lawsuit claiming that she had been fired because of religious discrimination. (p 56)
