Evangelical Financial Guru Dave Ramsey Brags About His Control Over His Employees’ Sex Lives
Evangelical financial guru Dave Ramsey bragged about his control over his employees’ sex lives in a bizarre statement posted on his company website. Ramsey’s rant was apparently in response to his company, Ramsey Solutions, being removed from a coveted “Best Workplaces” list by Inc. Magazine after court documents revealed that he had fired multiple people for having had premarital sex:
We have a moral code of conduct at our office. I fire people if they have extramarital affairs. The hilarious thing is I put that on Twitter and people go, “Won’t you get sued for that?”
Uh, no, you’re allowed to discriminate against infidelity. I’ve got a right to tell my employees whatever I want to tell them. They freaking work for me.
This is an employment-at-will state, which means if I decide I don’t like people with green eyes, I don’t have to hire you. I don’t have to keep you anymore. There are no eye color discrimination laws, sorry.
But listen, if your spouse can’t trust you, what makes you think I can trust you? Some of my brothers and sisters in Christ aren’t theologically deep enough to grasp that.
