    It seems that this man is being punished for his opinion. Many expect absolute conformity of opinions now and if that doesn't happen, you will lose your job. Will it get better from here, or worse?

    It's more than just a change in laws. It represents an effort to radically alter and redefine one of the most essential institutions that is at the foundation of every stable human society, to the likely detriment of any society which accepts this alteration. All to cater to the will of a tiny minority of immoral perverts.

    I'm straining my memory and I can't recall instances of corporations using their right to free speech to target one individual in the private sector and call for him to be destroyed. The issue isn't about having the right of free speech, it's how it's used.

    I was just reading some commentary and, if it was correct, then it appears that it's perfectly legal to fire people for their political beliefs. We've long known that media and academia don't hire, block promotion and do fire on the basis of political beliefs but now the Left has blown away all their plausible deniability that this is a favored tactic. I'm damn sure that those normal people who didn't subscribe to 100% politicization of EVERYTHING (they're normal people after all, not Leftists) are now learning a lesson - eat or be eaten.

    So you not only think they're not being denied rights, you don't even know what right is being discussed? Please tell me you're trolling and are not as ignorant as this.

    Have you heard of gay people? It happens to them plenty.

    That sounds like nothing other than an excuse to undermine the very most basic roots of any democracy or republic. If you disagree with the clearly-expressed will of the people, you can deem the majority who supported a position that you oppose to be “stupid”, and call for then to be “safely ignored”.

    No one believes in absolute democracy. Do you? How do you spew crap like that and then complain about the ACA, or anything else that was voted in. Please, take the obvious and pathetic hypocrisy elsewhere.

    just like the chicfila backlash this will have a backlash to.

    all of it negative on the gay right movement. they are doing themselves more harm than good.
    When the pendulum inevitably swings the other way, those on the wrong had better pray that those of us on the right do not avail ourselves of the precedents that the wrong are now establishing. Surely, they are forming the very weapons that may ultimately be used to destroy them.

    Hard to believe that you could lose your job for this belief and have others applaud when you do.

    I don't agree with your categorizing Gays as "immoral perverts" but would never demand you be fired for saying so. I'd rather try to bring you around too the idea that we are all God's children and to do unto others, etc. My son is Gay, it was not of his choosing, and neither of us want rights for him that are not available to anyone else. He treats others with the respect he expects for himself and that's all. I am for Gay marriage but will always defend the right of anyone to peacefully disagree.

    And that's the inevitable consequence of this madness.
