    Nope, never going to happen. Though I'm sure you dream of a utopia where you can fire the gays, the blacks, the women, and anyone else who was born into a body you don't agree with.

    Well, there is the concept of BFOQ Bona Fide Occupational Qualifications, if there was a casting for a movie about JFK and Samuel L Jackson got turned down for the part, (unless it was one really experimental film), he would not be able to say he was discriminated against. Most religious schools and such are not publicly traded companies, nor are they under the mandates of EO 11246.

    But, when I train managers...I explain the law and why doing the right thing IS the right thing, regardless of federal and state laws.

    You'd be surprised at how quickly opinions can turn. Homosexuals are way overplaying their hand here. I get that being on a power trip is enervating, especially when mixed in a cocktail of moral righteousness. All employers need to fire is plausible deniability, they fire for one cause which can be documented but the reality is that the person was fired for voting in favor of homosexual "marriage."

    No one is on a "Power Trip". More and more companies are diligently aligning themselves with pro equality views and are not go to tolerate an image that contradicts that.

    Oh man, the train passed you by hours ago, and you are angry and alone in a field thinking it is going to come back, just for you.

    Time for you to go yell at kids to get off your lawn.

    World changed for the better, you didn't.

    Well, I don't do the fuzzy diversity stuff, I do the legal side and the laws and the compliance issues and such.

    But, if a company doesn't train, or make good faith efforts to outreach to all qualified applicants, then they are hurting themselves legally and financially.

    I am so thankful to work for an enormous company that does the right thing, and when we are audited by the feds, we pass with flying colors.

    That company would tank so fast.
