There's A Fungus Among Us

"An Alabama woman has filed suit against her former employer, a dentist who required her to study materials by L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. After she complained on a radio station, she was fired.

The woman, Cortnie L. Beasley, called a local radio show to report that she objected, as a Baptist, to having Scientology views taught to her as part of her job. She says she was asked to sign a waiver allowing her to be trained in Scientology.

The radio show she appeared on was playing in the dentist office when she arrived to work. She was fired almost immediately after she arrived. She's seeking compensation and punitive damages and has also alleged a hostile work environment."
