    Like it or not, Sir, those people are considered as part of that company so any statement that comes out better not come in to conflict with my personal beliefs instead of the every day operation of that business.

    by your statements you are saying because people work for a company, ..the company cannot make any statements the people who work for the company disagree with....don't you find that wrong?

    I disagree. I shouldn't have to coerced to leave employment, but even that still wouldn't solve the issue of the owner's statement now, would it?

    Theres no coercion there. If you dont like a business, dont work there. Plain and simple. Suck it up or hit the road. You arent entitled to another persons business.

    Just because I work for a company does not mean that the owner has the right to control my beliefs. That owner can tell me what to do and where to work in that company but he/she does not have the right to make statements for me.

    I don't want the owner's business. Like I said: I will let the owner fire me so that I can get a lawyer.

    The owner isnt controlling your beliefs or making statenebts for you. You are not the company. You dont own the company. You dont get to make those decisions. If a company owner thinks being anti gay is beneficial, he should be allowed to do so. He will face his own consequences
