Palm cross causes offence

In another incident of "company policy" vs "religious freedom" a Yorkshire man could be disciplined for displaying a palm cross in a company van. Although the BBC play this up a lot with the headline "job loss fear", it's fairly obvious he'll just be told to get rid of it. Displaying personal items in the van is against company policy. That doesn't mean he's going to get fired.

So who's being religiously intolerant here:
a) The company that asked the driver to remove his policy-breaking item?
b) The Yorkshireman who drove around with a symbol of his faith in a van window?

Actually, I'm voting for secret option 'c': the grumbling twit who registered a complaint that a palm cross was offensive.
