If someone does not share your religious beliefs, that does not mean your beliefs are being violated.

If you have strongly held religious beliefs and your job does something that does not fit with those beliefs, you have two options: put those beliefs aside while at work or leave that job.

That’s how it works in the US, how it’s always worked.

Your religion is a lifestyle choice that you can’t expect everyone else to choose. Your employer has to make reasonable accommodations for your religious beliefs; it can’t forbid you to wear a crucifix or a star of David or any religious hat or scarf or head dress. But expecting your employer to discriminate against other people due to your particular religious beliefs is both unreasonable and illegal.
