The other major sports play on Christmas Day. We play on Easter.
And why exactly does this holiday prevent him from playing? If he wanted to go outside and play baseball with his kids on that day, is that against his religion too?
It's a classic case of someone exploiting a minority group they happen to be in for personal gain.
You can't possibly be serious.
The man wants to be a part of his religion! Did it ever occur to you that Yom Kippur may be a service that takes part all day, unlike Christmas and Easter?
He won't be taking a vacation. I'll bet you he'll be in temple.
