Boss harassment...

So my boss has been harassing the hell out of me lately.
Sunday I went to the supply closet for the warehouse and got a roll of TP to blow my nose with(sick as a dog, still am)..someone snitched and he's trying to snag me for "stealing". He gave me a final warning lastnight/thismorning. He's doing this to get back on his boss's good side..which won't work since his boss already knows about this and doesn't care. Anywho, while berating me about "stealing" the toiletpaper (which, according to him...doesn't grow on trees..truestory) he starts in on my religion. Saying that he knows I read Christian books, that I "claim" to be a Christian..and something like that I should follow my "Christian teachings". Which is pretty funny..coming from a 50+ year old guy who lives with a dude and has an unhealthy obsession with cats.
Shortly afterwards a coworker informs me this falls under religious discrimination and that I should file a report on my boss to his boss (after what happened thursday night..his boss REALLY wants to get rid of him).
Before doing so though..I want to get as much info about religious discrimination. I'm going to look through the work's handbook and quote the page etc. on the report..but I am wondering..are there any laws on this? If so, any links to info about them? Putting in that he is REALLY breaking a law (unlike me..which is just getting TP from a supply closet to blow my nose) will aid my cause greatly.

Edit: Also..he claims he's not trying to get me fired..and that he "spoke on my behalf". I'm sorry..whoever files a FINAL WARNING on me is trying to get me fired. I'm not as blatantly idiotic as he thinks I am.

Well, this is in the Security industry..at a UPS warehouse park..not many jobs to lose there.

Over some toilet paper? Seems like he just wants to have some authority.

I've dealt with this kinda ***** before and I gotta tell you...It RARELY works out in your favor, especially if you actually file a complaint.

IMO the best thing would be to pull aside his boss and say "Look, I don't want to file a complaint, but I just wanted you to know what happened and that I think it's unfair." If he'll listen, make sure you avoid personal attacks over the guys lifestyle. If you do, you stand a higher chance of being listened to.

another good point.............that would be probably the best way to handle somebody who acts like that.

I have a seriously good feeling it'd work out well in my favor. You underestimate how badly his boss wants to get rid of him. I DID get his boss's number just incase something happened.
I started this thread to ask if anyone knew of any laws against religious discrimination, anyone know of any?

Yeah. It's called the Civil Rights Act.

It doesn't sound like discrimination, though. It sounds like you let it be known you're religious, and he used what he knew about your religion to try to explain why you shouldn't be doing something.
