The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said Wednesday it has filed a religious discrimination suit against United Health Programs of America Inc. and its parent company, Cost Containment Group Inc., which provide customer service on behalf of various insurance providers.
The Long Island company required employees to wear buttons and place cards promoting this religion in the workplace. Employees were also required to work in dim lighting in accordance to the religion.
The religion itself is interesting to say the least, Onionhead, as described on their comic sans heavy website is:
It is not what is Onionhead - it is who is Onionhead? Onionhead is this incredibly pure, wise and adorable character who teaches us how to name it - claim it - tame it - aim it. Onion spelled backwards is 'no-i-no'. He wants everyone to know how they feel and then know what to do with those feelings. He helps us direct our emotions in a truthful and compassionate way. Which in turn assists us to communicate more appropriately and peacefully. In turn, we then approach life from a place of our wellness rather than a place of our wounds.
His motto is: peel it - feel it - heal it
The video really drives home the point.
