Being Unfriendly at Work A Protestant Belief?

Now, I agree with much of this Reuters story. But this little tidbit below is just a bit much:

ROOTED IN PROTESTANT BELIEFS

This impersonal attitude at work is rooted in Protestant beliefs of putting emotion aside at the office, Sanchez-Burks said in a telephone interview this week.

The American style of keeping things impersonal at the workplace is virtually confined to the United States, he said.

Speaking as a life long “protestant” I’m hard pressed to find anywhere in Scripture or tradition “the Protestant beliefs of putting emotion aside at the office.”

Not that Reuters might have a religious bias or anything….
