Election Worker Fired for Saying ‘God Bless You’


A poll worker in Derry, New Hampshire, claims she was fired for saying three words to voters as she handed out ballots. Those words were: “God bless you.”

Ruth Provencal argues she was wrongly terminated as an election worker because she offered this simple blessing to voters at the polls.

“This country was founded with God and if we take away God out of this town or this country, we’re definitely a country that goes under,” Provencal told WHDH.com. “I’m just surprised that she was taken by that remark as being not lawful because I felt we’re still in America.”

  1. It certainly is becoming a dangerous time to live in for a Christian when a simple wish like that can get you fired. Thanks for the heads-up.
