You can't win a religious discrimination case by citing "freedom of religion is guaranteed in the Constitution."
The Constitution doesn't cover relationships between individuals, such as employers and employees, only relationships between the government and its citizens. None of the freedoms covered in the Bills of Rights are absolute, so your boss, your mother, or your spouse, can "take away" your freedom of speech and assembly, etc. without any problem.
Discrimination in employment based on religion, however, is prohibited by the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The employee should have won his case, Alan Shore knew that, and he should have urged his client to settle. But then we wouldn't have gotten to hear Kelley's great slicing and dicing of Scientology. Brilliant!
