Bible Totin' Keyser Soze Homer Keezer Sh*t-Canned at the Depot

Six Time Homer Award Winner worker fired for wearing 'under God' button
Keezer says for 19 months, ever since he started working as a cashier at The Home Depot in Okeechobee, he's worn a button with an American flag on it that reads: "One nation under God, indivisible."
Trev didn't start working at The Home Depot to make a religious statement. He just wanted to earn money for college.
Keezer sees the quotation, taken from the pledge of allegiance, as his way of supporting American troops at war, and of expressing his Christian personal faith.
"I was cashier of the month and I've won six 'Homer' awards -- that's the highest award you can get at Home Depot."
"I want to go to school to become a nurse," said the 20-year-old Okeechobee resident.

Just follow the corporate rules, son. And work hard, save your money and carry a small Bible or a large Koran and you should be okay.
Bank of America don't like Old Glory much either.
