IKEA is being sued by a former employee after he was fired for posting Bible verses on the company’s corporate network.
The Christian Post reports that the employee, Tomasz K., worked at an IKEA store location in Poland. He was let go from the store in Krakow after he refused to delete a comment he posted on the company’s intranet.
In May, the company celebrated International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT). An article celebrating the IDAHOT event and the LGBT community was published on IKEA’s site.
Employees were asked to attend a pro-LGBT event at the company. Tomasz did not agree with promoting homosexuality, according to the Catholic News Agency.
“I was shaken up,” Tomasz explained. “I’ve been hired to sell furniture but I’m a Catholic and these aren’t my values.”
He replied to the company’s article, expressing his biblical beliefs and Christian values. He was subsequently fired from IKEA.
