"Every time something really bad happens, people cry out for safety, and the government answers by taking rights away from good people." - Penn Jillette.
and if so id say your company sucks and needs to have its HR department seriously revamp before your company is sued for violating laws and rights. Im also a manager and this is the second time I also do recruiting and have had to do some low level HR being a manager.
its not "views one disagrees with" or a "book" that was written nobody educated and objective would take that claim seriously
in fact a friend of mine was fired because he made some joke about me that got out (it was a top ten list) and it was taken to HR by a third party that didnt know they were friendly jokes. I defended him and he was fired anyway because HR said its to much of a liability, while "i" wasn't directly insulted, it was done at work, others could be offended and that creates a hostile work place for them.
so far based on the INFO WE HAVE, its a direct insults of coworkers and thier own religions, sexual orientations etc which can get someone easily fired for insulting coworkers, verbal assault, verbal discrimination, creating a hostile work environment, employee conduct etc
are you honestly telling me if i work for your company and come in to work and tell people all fags are dirty sinners and should burn in hell nothing happens? or better yet I hate all jews and all niggers are dirty nothing will happen because im just "expressing a view others disagree with?"
please stop, unless theres new info that the mayor lied your rewording of what actually happened is not true.
Organizations employing people have this sort of discretion. Sexual harassment is another example, technically by telling some coworker i want to **** her isn't a violation of the first amendment, but people sure get fired for it all the time, this book this is no different from sexual harassment as both are cases where someone has a constitutional right to say something but businesses have a right to protect their own work place and to guard against things that would affect morale or productivity.
This is basic management 101, why are people confused about this?

"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
it's freedom of expression that is being denied
doesn't matter what is being expressed
now, if that person distributing those pamphlets compelled his subordinate employees to read them and/or discuss them, such that theirs was not a voluntary act, then that person would have intruded on their rights
but i have yet to see anyone express within this thread what that chief did to warrant termination from his career position
if anyone abused their authority, it would be those officials who have strong pro LBGT leanings who railroaded this man only because of their own personally held views about sexual orientation
