Billy Hyatt says in a federal lawsuit that he was fired in 2009 after he refused to wear the sticker proclaiming that his factory in Atlanta had been accident-free for 666 days.

That number is the "mark of the beast" in the Bible's Book of Revelation describing the apocalypse.

Mr Hyatt says he is a devout Christian and told a manager the sticker would violate his beliefs. He said he was then told his beliefs were "ridiculous".

He was suspended and fired a few days later.
