First,
I am back after a long absence (if that even matters)
Feels good to be back.

Now for the bovis stercus

I have access to my own computer at work and management is pretty liberal about the use and content mostly because they have a web filter they installed.

I was in need of some Pagan related items and began to google the shops I like to visit.
One of them being azure green.
Blocked.
Ok, let's try another site.
Blocked.
Another?
Blocked.
Reason being? Alternative Belief...

So, just as a test I googled "Christian online store".
I was able to access each and every online store that google threw at me.
I live in the South. I know they are biased but come on...

I'm not sure if this is legally discrimination (there is nothing in the company handbook saying I can't access these websites) but I feel slightly discriminated and this wouldn't be the first time. If you want to hear that story Ill post it in the comments.

I went home pissed off.

I practice rituals on Saturday in honor of Saturn. I requested to be excused for coming into late for work in the future due to the ritual occurring so late. Legally, as long as I give ample time to make arrangements they can not tell me no. Although they did not deny me the manager told me that he had to "approve" it and he wanted to know what religion I practiced. Legally, he may not request to know what religion I practice and he has no choice but to approve it so long I give him time (which I did). So, I entertained his questions and told him I am Roman Polytheist/Pagan. He said he researched it and everything that came up was "Satanic". Matris futuor, when I google it the first thing that shows up is my beliefs! Religious discrimination is HUGE out here.

To most Christians, anything that is not Christian itself is immediately categorized as "Satanic".

An employer can block whatever site they deem inappropriate for their work environment. Most likely its some default setting in a firewall they have set up somewhere and not something they are doing to specifically target you.

I am the high-magus of the ever-wrong. The more I know, the more I know I don't know - therefore I know nothing.

Well now you know his beliefs. You should work to spread Lucifera rein across the earth. Your boss being an example is a little motivation.

Fixed that for you. Wink

Oh, and to add to the discussion, a workplace can block any website they want for whatever reason. Your having access to internet service that the company pays for is a leisure, not a workplace right. As for asking about your beliefs, your employer actually has room to ask when you request to have a work holiday to determine whether your beliefs are "sincerely held", which is required by law to protect the company from joe "sunday funday" shmoe from skipping work.
