You talk about tolerance, but then you end it by saying "why should you care, just let me do my job" Having it in the office is apparently against their religion. They run the office. It seems as though if given the choice you'd say "screw you I'm bringing in bread"
How is that tolerant?
Because the job is not about their religion. At least, I assume so. I think Ree works for some sporting goods thing. Why does anyone have to care about religion in a job that has nothing to do with it? That's entirely unfair.
Again, who's making the imposition?
A: We're not going to eat or be around bread and you can't either.
or B: Fine, you don't eat bread and I'll try my best not to get in the way of your practices and keep my bread out of your sight.
A is dictating, and not only isn't
B dictating, they're going out of their way to at least try and make things more agreeable for A.
There has long been some weird expectation on the part of some religious followers that their practices should resonate with the non-believers as well. Don't take the name of the lord in vain, don't eat meat on Fridays, etc. I am not trying to be disrespectful but I have never heard one good reason why I should care. Worship your religions to your hearts content. But they have nothing to do with me and really, that's that.
