I really don't understand Nova's position on this, he's got it backwards. Although I concede that the DOD has the right to decide whether to let a company use the military insignias, the only reason for denying that right to a company would be to prevent a disrespectful use of them. If an ashtray or lighter is not a disrespectful use of the symbol, a Bible certainly isn't, either.
Diversity in the workplace is not something you will hear me preach about because I don't believe in Diversity (capital D) for diversity's sake. Under our current laws, though, fair employment and compensation practice is a legitimate workplace discussion.
Girl Scout Cookies, like all solicitation for charitable donations has no place in the workplace IMO. We are all adults and capable of choosing and supporting our charities outside the workplace. That goes for the employer as well; no employer should be trying to aggrandize himself by pressuring his employees to participate in his social climbing through charity or whatever it is he is pursuing in that regard.
Trying to get your coworker to attend indoctrination centers for Jesus or Krishna with you is not an acceptable workplace activity, especially if you are other than equals in workplace status. Megacorp's policy on this, if I recall correctly is pretty much the same as it is for dating: you may ask once. After one refusal, it's harassment.
