    No. He didn't. He privately donated to a political cause with which he agreed. It didn't harm anyone at the company, and he it appears that he didn't mistreat anyone at the company. And for believing and supporting something that has only now become politically incorrect, he's fired.

    It's not so much the people who speak out against him as much as it's the person or persons that outted what was private previously. Obviously to do him great harm, such as it has.

    As if there aren't deep dark secrets in everyone's life that they'd rather keep private, and would be damaged if made public. Who's to say that someone isn't going to make your public and causing you great harm?

    Prove that he lied. I don't think that his political donations were brought up in the conversation, nor do I really think that it's any of the employer's business what they are.

    Yes, he did.

    If a Christian cable network hired a CEO who hid that he was a drag queen and later revealed that, you would understand that there was fraud in the hiring process and damage done to the company.

    He was undoubtedly questioned regarding personal affairs that might reflect poorly on the company's image. He was being hired as CEO, not janitor.

When you are the face of your company, you should really just stay out of politics completely. The outcome would have been no different had he endorsed gun legislation instead of anti-gay legislation, except partisan politics would be completely reversed and liberals would be offended instead of conservatives.
    Was the civil rights movement for blacks or women controversial? Yes, definitely. Unpopular? Often. Caused lots of conflict, lots of inconvenience (all those marchers....interrupting business...terrible!). Yes, it was hard to take a stance for equality back then....to be on the side of moving forward. That's why people sometimes have to 'fight' for their civil rights...because if they just sit there....nothing happens.

    Were the fights for civil rights worth it for blacks and women worth it? Well, we think so.

    Will he now be forced to walk through the streets in shame? Why not the stocks? The whole episode disgusts me – as it should disgust anyone interested in a tolerant and diverse society. If this is the gay rights movement today – hounding our opponents with a fanaticism more like the religious right than anyone else – then count me out. If we are about intimidating the free speech of others, we are no better than the anti-gay bullies who came before us.

    didn't Obama oppose gay marriage like, 5 minutes ago?? and now if you oppose it you must be drummed out of society. I'm convinced history will look back on this era with bewildered fascination. simply incredible

    Hey, did you ever post where you added that link to support for your claim about requiring persona info?

    Please let me know.

    You think CEOs are hired without the company asking: "is there anything in your personal life, past or present, that would reflect poorly on the company's image".

    Let's not play stupid.

    It's no different than lying on an application.
    Where was your link supporting this again?

    There may be such stipulations...but having worked in an HR Dept, I'd like to see the particulars.
