Bobby Walker Jr. sued the city March 3, 2016, nearly three months after the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission dismissed his claim over his firing. He accused his bosses of mocking his religious beliefs and making derogatory comments about his race before firing him from the $13-an-hour job in retaliation when he complained. 

The city filed a notice of settlement April 5, in advance of the April 17 trial date set for federal court in Key West before Judge Jose Martinez.

Walker worked as a temporary bus driver from May 27, 2014, until Jan. 2, 2015, earning an annual salary of $27,827. On Dec. 31, 2015, he was told he was fired for refusing to work on New Year’s Eve 2014.

But Walker says due to his religious beliefs he asked for the time off two days before the 2014 Fantasy Fest parade — which wraps up the city’s annual 10-day festival known for drawing throngs of scantily clad men and women who often opt for full body paint.

"...........2014 Fantasy Fest parade — which wraps up the city’s annual 10-day festival known for drawing throngs of scantily clad men and women who often opt for full body paint."

Sounds like a Bacchanalian feast to me.

one dictionary definition is: 

bacchanalian - used of riotously drunken merrymaking; "a night of bacchanalian revelry";"carousing 

bands of drunken soldiers"; "orgiastic festivity

Dionysus or also the Roman counterpart Bacchus , was the god of the grape harvest, winemaking and wine, of ritual madness and ecstasy in Greek mythology.The earliest cult images of Dionysus show a mature male, bearded and robed. He holds a fennel staff, tipped with a pine-cone and known as a thyrsus. Later images show him as a beardless, sensuous, naked or half-naked androgynous youth: the literature describes him as womanly or "man-womanish" *

Jehovah would certainly view this as something disgusting..........reminds me of what evils the Israelites were doing from our weekly Bible readings in Jeremiah. 
 

* I think this is closely resembling some of today's people, who cannot make up their minds as to what they are!!!!

PS ......or just plain, outright, debauchary
