What can Brown do for Christians? Stop mocking our Jesus, you hypocrites

A scrappy grassroots group known for its David-versus-Goliath fights is applauding a UPS driver who bravely fought his powerful employer and his own union when the anti-Christian environment he works in every day had gone too far.

After being contacted by UPS driver James Earls, Mass Resistance is retelling the story of the Alabama resident and 35-year UPS driver to demonstrate how one person made a difference in an uphill battle.

A devout Christian, Earls has always been bothered by the “Pride Month” celebration at UPS every June, which is no longer a surprise to see anymore. By now virtually every large corporation hangs “pride flags” and praises its LGBT employees, because ignoring it would be "homophobic," but Earls was aware the company’s own policies claim to respect his personal views and beliefs, too.

“His concerns were vast,” Karen Van Wyk, the  national organization director for Mass Resistance, says of Earls’ growing frustration with UPS.

UPS checks all the wrong boxes

The global company, which made $92 billion in revenue last year, pours its money into Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, supports anti-white DEI training, and even partners with the globalist World Economic Forum.  

Among its perverse rainbow activities, UPS operates an employee organization that supports and promotes its LGBT employees. The corporation’s non-profit has donated $1.2 million in two years to the Human Rights Campaign, the notorious lobbying group that is an open enemy of orthodox Christianity, which would include Earls and thousands of other UPS workers.

Among his biggest disappointments, however, was when Earls discovered his employer had promoted a homosexual website, GayPrideCalendar.com. On that site Earls discovered the online store sells vulgar t-shirts and other merchandise (pictured at top) with sex-related jokes mocking Jesus Christ.

After learning about that partnership, Earls decided he couldn't stay quiet anymore. 

“His concerns were the hypocrisy and [UPS] claiming to be nondiscriminatory,” Van Wyk explains, “when they're extremely so towards white Christian males."

From the CEO to the EEOC

After learning about the blasphemous website, Earls had seen enough and decided to put his UPS career on the line. His first step was to utilize his employer’s so-called “open-door policy,” which promotes itself as a friendly and non-threatening way to file complaints. That complaint went all the way to the UPS CEO, Carol Tome, and to the Teamsters president, Sean O’Brien.

According to Earls, that open-door policy went nowhere and he never heard back.

Not giving up, Earls then filed a grievance – four of them in all – which forced the Teamsters to listen to him as part of its collective bargaining agreement. At the hearing, Earls witnessed his own union turn on him.

“It got ugly real quick,” Earls told Mass Resistance for its story about his corporate fight. “I told him that I had a right to work in a hostile-free environment just as much as their beloved homosexual employees did. I told him that I have a right to work there and that I want to work in a place that is free from this hatred towards Christian employees.”

After the union denied all four grievances, Earls did not get up yet. Just days after reading that Teamsters letter Earls filed a formal complaint against the Teamsters with the National Labor Relations Board.

Earls wasn’t done, either. The day after he contacted the NLRB, the UPS driver filed a discrimination complaint with the EEOC. His complaint cited the 1964 Rights Act, which prohibits religious discrimination in the work place.

A quiet win is still a win

In the end, after that one-man mission, Earls one victory was watching UPS quietly drop its association with the GayPrideCalendar.com – without ever acknowledging the Christian UPS driver who had shamed his employer over it.

Earls knows what happens, of course, and he took his story to Mass Resistance hoping it will encourage others to stand up and fight back.

According to Van Wyk, what Earls decided was a major corporation mocking his faith was wrong.

“And I think he is a great example of what to do and why to do it,” she says.
