I know it’s about a job and I’m not sure how to respond. Should I politely decline or not respond to his message at all? I can’t work there, no matter what they’ll pay.
If they are not forcing you to pray or go to bible readings, and you can positively influence the narrative, why not take a job? I work at a religious organization and they know I am not a believer. I have had the fortunate experiences of being an advocate of tolerance, anti-racism and acceptance of LGBT people. I also learned some incredible skills, like negotiating, using their own scriptures to push back on discrimination and exclusion, and learning diplomacy.
If you aren’t at the table, you are on the menu.
I wouldn't take this job , I will not consider an interview . A response to decline is not even required . What they gonna do , put your name on "a list of people who do not reply in job offers ?" Youth and Christianity , 2 words that give me the hives . Child molestation , child mental abuse and preping the young how to be fearful and useless , I don't want to be a part of it .
Been there. An opportunity for a job with a chemical company which had approached Twump for easement on environmental regulations. I'd been out of work a few weeks when the first opportunity came up; it was harder to resist the second time (too many people like me looked away?) but nothing came of it.
My first “real” job was in PR for a Ukrainian Catholic hospital. I was neither, and it got awkward when I had to photograph religious ceremonies and didn’t know the protocol. If you are tempted by the job, take an interview and ask about the e owctationa related to religious values and practice.
It might be a good idea to use a potential interview as networking. You might want to leverage a raise at your present job. It doesn't hurt to have more connections. Then again, maybe your present job would get upset if they heard that you were interviewing elsewhere. Generally having more information and connections is a good idea.
