Believe it or not, your State most likely has laws against this sort of harassment in the work place. It is right up there with the sexual harrassment laws.
If, the boss threatens to or actually doe terminate you, thank him because he made you a millionaire. Sue him and the company for everything they own.
Yes, there is freedom of speech and freedom of religion, but these freedoms have limitations. One is not allowed to abuse these freedoms to harass another person.
I think your advice is extremely inappropriate.
How would a Catholic feel about an atheist or a Wiccan demanding not only to work at a Catholic bookstore but to be free from hearing any expression of Catholicism that would make him/her uncomfortable?
You are suggesting an outrageous abuse of the unfortunate trend in our society toward political correctness and away from free speech.
The OP indicated that up to now this bookstore has been a friendly place for a Catholic to work. It is certainly appropriate to share with the owner that these tracts change that environment. But this is a private business. If they want to run it on fundamentalist lines, promoting anti-Catholic religion, that's too bad but it's their decision to make. Suing them for expressing their religious views freely should be out of the question.
