A bad joke becomes a reality.

Posted by

An ethicist, a Bible scholar, a theologian and a preacher walk into a hotel that is being boycotted at the request of its own workers. It’s like the punch line of a bad joke. But it’s not a joke, it could happen. And it’s not funny, but serious.

Lillian Daniel opens her HuffPo article with the 2 sentences above. The article tells the reader that men and women who work for the Hyatt hotels are boycotting the Hotel and are asking a pretty bold thing from people. They are asking that everyone join them. Well, enter a group Religious scholars from Society of Biblical Literature and American Academy of Religion for a international meeting and all of a sudden you have a real life ethics question. Here’s how Lillian puts it:

 

 

 

So what will happen at the convention when they arrive in Chicago and learn the lay of the land at the Hyatt? Can you imagine asking an ethicist to break a boycott in order to interview for a job? Can you imagine asking a religious historian to ignore the teachings of so many traditions that uphold the dignity of workers and their right to organize?

 

Lillian Daniel asks some great questions in her article. Read the whole thing. What do you think they should do support the people? Not get involved? Thoughts go in the comment section below?
