Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

From the New York Daily News:

The manager of one of the city’s most luxurious hotels was given the boot after ordering a Catholic employee to clean up his forehead on Ash Wednesday.

“Wipe that f—–g s–t off your face,” managing director Niklaus Leuenberger told a bell captain at the New York Palace Hotel on Feb. 25, sources said.

Higher ups were not amused. The CEO for the chain flew all the way from London to personally fire Leuenberger.

Further down the article, this little point: “The hotel leases its land from the Catholic Church.”

  1. Does it matter, in your eyes, that the land was owned by the Catholic Church? Do you think that’s why they fired him? Seems to me that sort comment is just as bigoted as telling a Sikh to “remove that —- turban from your head.” He should be fired for either comment because of religious bigotry.

    • No, it doesn’t matter. I agree with you. Just pointing out what the article said. Don’t know if that was what made the difference to the CEO.
