The Houston Chronicle is reporting that a Macy’s employee in San Antonio was fired for not allowing a transgender shopper to use a fitting room.

The employee cited her Christian belief as the reason she denied the customer service. Store policy allows transgender people to use either fitting room.

Equality Texas Assistant Director Chuck Smith said, “Go Macy’s! If your religious beliefs prevent you from carrying out the functions of your job for other people — whether that be as a dressing-room attendant, a pharmacist, or a doctor — then you should leave that job. Christianity does not entitle you to oppress others, though you are welcome to oppress yourself.”

Macy’s received a 100 percent rating in the Human Rights Campaign‘s Corporate Equality Index.
