    I can't wait until I can exercise some firing authority over a liberal or a homosexual I disagree with. I think that I can warm up to this notion that the Left is birthing - firing people for their opinions. You guys sure know how to win friends and influence people. No holds barred. I personally wouldn't have gone with that strategy, but I can learn new tricks and unilateral disarmament is not one of those tricks.
    Nobody was fired. The guy resigned because the employees weren't happy.

    Sorry that doesn't feed your persecution complex.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I'm sure they did.


    Sure, who cares about cashiers, but the CEO is -the- representative of the company. His personal life is in play during the interview process.
    Certainly.

    However Eich did not go to rallies, publically endorse the prop, write letters to the newspaper . He gave a $1000. And that was it.

    The intolerance was by those folks who rooted around to look for their political opponents in order to attack them.

    I agree that the offense is slight. I think perhaps there's something else that we don't know about.

    I don't think that analogy really works. Are you taking marriage away from conservatives that were previously allowed to marry? There is no correlation with a moral disagreement with some aspect of their lives. For instance, my opposition to changing the definition of marriage has nothing to do with anyone's behavior and whether or not I agree with it.

    No. I don't think there will be a violent revolution. Like many times throughout the history of the nation, issues will become big deals, and then they will die out.

    Consider the collective thought that must have been prevalent to allow Progressives of the day to successfully sell a Constitutional Amendment that banned the sale and consumption of alcohol. That's remarkable if you think about it. Yet, eventually, the people came to their senses, the fad of Progressivism faded out, and people moved on.

    I believe we are in a similar period of time. Like before, these agendas and ideologies will change, and people will move on. My guess is that people will grow weary of the constant bickering and those behind the agenda will be exposed for what they are.

    At that point he had the kind of choice that we're all faced with given enough time:

    1)Claim that he's evolved on the matter, thus diffusing the situation instantly and keeping his job.
    2)Stand by his principles and lose his job.

    This is a standard ethical problem, there's rarely a way around it, and Eich made his choice.

    Fair enough, but the point is, to some you are denying fundamentally who they are. This provokes strong reactions in people. It makes sense to me that people would go pretty far to secure the ability to be themselves.
