    A janitor says in a lawsuit against his former employer that he was discriminated against and mocked because of his devout Roman Catholic faith.

    The suit filed Tuesday by Arcadio Cruz says supervisors and co-workers for C&W Facilities Services, which provides janitorial service to Boston's Logan International Airport, taunted him for being open about the importance of religion in his life, visiting the airport chapel on lunch breaks, and carrying a Bible and rosary beads.

    The Lynn man says one supervisor told him to "call your God to clean the urinal."

    He says the company fired him after he complained about bullying and unfair treatment.

    This lawsuit alleges religious discrimination, retaliation, and breach of contract and seeks unspecified damages.

    Newton-based C&W did not immediately respond to an email requesting comment.
