Last week we reported on the initial refusal of Office Depot  to service a religious woman, Maria Goldstein’s request to print flyers.

Well, Office Depot had a change of heart and  apologized. They issued the following statement:

‘We sincerely apologize to Ms. (Maria) Goldstein for her experience and our initial reaction was not at all related to her religious beliefs,” Office Depot Chairman and CEO Roland Smith, said in a statement, the Chicago Tribune reported. “We invite her to return to Office Depot if she still wishes to print the flier.’

Maria’s lawyers have responded in kind with the following:

‘We are grateful that Office Depot has apologized for discriminating against Maria Goldstein based on the content of her flyers,” said Thomas More Society attorney Tom Olp. “This situation is a reminder that religious liberty is increasingly under attack today, but it is a fundamental American right that every one of us should value and defend.’

It should be noted that religious freedom is becoming the new battleground for lawyers. There are quite a few cases that are in the pipeline that we will be hearing abiut the next few weeks. YIu can read abiut them here.
