Office lunch room - nobody in the room is on the clock. One table is discussing their weekend, another table is discussing work. The table discussing their weekend is mentioning things like drinking, and the obnoxious behavior of someone who drank too much. The table discussing work is one person telling the others about the horrible phone call she took where she was cussed out by a customer.
Another co-worker comes in carrying a bible. Nobody else in the room notices and continues their conversations. She goes to management and complains that these conversations should have stopped as soon as they saw her bible because the subject matter was offensive to her (there wasn't actual profanity or sex being discussed, aside from the direct quotes of the work-related phone call).
Was the bible wielding co-worker crossing the line?
(yes, this happened at my old job, and I know what the outcome was - curious how others would view it)

I would have told her to get over herself, lol! What is the rest of the world supposed to bow down, and mind their ways in the presence of a bible? If that's the case then lets all respect each others faith in that same manner. I'd like to demand the same reaction she was hoping for when I walk in the room full of herbs, oils, and Crystals!
