Would you really want to work for someone who cannot accept other peoples beliefs anyway?
No belief is worthy of respect unless it is supportable by facts and evidence. Lots of people believe lots of crazy stuff... whether it's a belief that passenger jets spread mind-control chemicals in their condensation trails, or that a Jewish zombie watches everyone from the sky and loves you but sends you to a pit of eternal torture if you don't love him back, there's plenty of crazy to go around. That said, some beliefs can't be used as hiring criteria in Canada and the Canadian Human Rights Tribunals pretty much always believe the complainant so it's worth making a complaint if you genuinely believe you were wronged.
Now I wanna know what he said that got him laughed out of an interview. Perhaps he's a green party supporter who applied for an energy company (green supporters are known to vandalize and protest at energy sites), or a marijuana party supporter applying for a security or law enforcement job? There could have been a real good laugh in the details OP left out.
Nobody has to respect anyone's views. It is the unqualified respect for stupid beliefs that causes the bulk of the anguish in the world. If your beliefs can't stand up to disrespect then they're not worth much, all other concerns aside. All beliefs are simply not equally worthy of respect. If you think otherwise, you are logically, ethically, intellectually wrong. It's a safe bet you don't respect all beliefs either, whether you disrespect conspiracy theorists, flat earthers, other people's cultish religious beliefs or what have you. While I respect your right to believe whatever crazy crap you want in a free society, I cannot, will not and have a DUTY to not respect the crazy crap just because you believe it.
98, that's not how it works at all. Change does not happen by agreeing to disagree. I can't STAND people who can't grasp the concept that debate and controversy is necessary to fixing social issues. I would never respect racist, homophobic, or likewise "beliefs" simply because everyone is entitled to their opinion. I respect their right to HAVE an opinion, but that opinion does not need to be respected if it is undeserving of such.
Complain anyway. That's just not fucking cool. If he did it to you, he'll have done it to other people.
I agree, I know when I was in a similar situation after I had already been hired, and was being discriminated against for my place of origin, I was petrified of filing a complaint against my manager, yet after doing it found out i was one of 7 to have reported it. He was later fired for misconduct :)
Exactly #3! He was just saying that OP to try and intimidate you, so you wouldn't report it. I would send a letter to HR and copy your local Better Business Bureau. Also, let HR know that you're copying BBB by putting it just above the subject line. They're more likely to cooperate if you do.
I would start recording my interviews just in case this happens. I wonder how many times this has happened with no punishment?
It's times like this where people are too judgmental due to your beliefs, religious, political or otherwise, that makes me hate most of the human race.
At that point, OP, you should have said "I'm sorry, I don't believe you're allowed to ask me that". Nobody made you answer; and also, many people are "laid-back and cool" until they find out you believe differently than they do.
I agree op should of said that but have seen people not hired for refusing to answer. On a side note several states do allow you to record interviews with out stating your doing do for exactly this reason. Several also apply this to meetings with HR after your hired.
