<quoted text>So please tell us how this would be any different than one of the hospital whores having affairs with everyone from the CEO to the delivery man in order to get her promotions and raises and unfair special treatment from the CEO there, let us hear you explain that one. Or the CEO, or maybe the BOARD members want to explain that one to the public. If you are going to fire someone for an offense, then anyone and everyone who is guilty of the same thing needs to be fired also, they can't have it both ways to protect their bedfellows or mistresses or one night stands or 15 minute BJs behind their office doors.
That is the whole point in a nutshell, and that is why it is called illegal discrimination. Don't worry, these women can ask for any settlement they want and get it. The men on the Board and the Hospital administrators aren't going to let this thing go to trial. Can you believe for a second that they would let these women's lawyers put some of these cheaters and adulterous men and women on the witness stand for their lawyer to tear them apart under oath and document all of the scandals and affairs and details to be printed on the front page of the newspapers and every news station in the area, that just is not ever going to happen. They can get whatever settlement they want. If they put Hugh in touch with their lawyer, he could settle for a few million too, for the way these people set him up and suckered him with the entrapment that got him fired. All they have to do is name their settlement figure.

Just remember PVH employee's, any settlement they might get will come from the hospitals general accounts. That means more cuts, less employees, less benefits, and higher insurance. Basically each one of you will be paying the settlement. So if I were in your position, I would be worried and stop bashing my employer and maybe get behind them. Many of you may end up in the bread line.

Do you honestly believe any person who reads this will not see how obvious it is that you are either a management person or administrator or board member at PVH, or a major, total Suck-UP to them, and you are simply trying to shift the subject off their own sleazy, cheating, lying, and adulterous affairs and all of the drug scandals and entrapment, and too much crap to mention. If they are going to clean house of all of the trashy behavior, they can't do it with discrimination and favoritism.

I'm not sure you are correct, but if you are you make a good point, we will all pay for the mismanagement by the Board and the administrators with higher hospital fees, but those go up every year, no matter what. It would be interesting to see some really smart person or the local newspapers make an over-lying chart that would show the population numbers of their market area, along with the PVH system's total revenues, year by year, for the past 20 years. How did they get to be a 100 million dollar a year hospital system when the population keeps dropping and unemployment keeps growing every year, that seems just wrong. It would also be good to see what they have paid each year in any kind of fines or settlements for those same years, if you really want to prove your point. Make a good question for the local news to ask the Board and the CEO. It is a publicly owned hospital so all of that information has to be made available to the public, legally, I think.

I believe you're right...Technically, the community should have access to all information, I think.

No, it is not plain enough. What do you mean by "THE ACT"? Are you referring to the act of a man having oral/anal sex with another man or a woman having oral sex with another woman? If you are only hating these "acts" I don't see why they are any of your business. They happen behind closed doors. So, what you are saying is that you have no problem with gay people in general. They should be treated equally with straight people. Because other than these "ACTS" you speak of, they are just like everyone else. Right? I hope this is what you mean. Also, what do you think of a straight couple doing these same "ACTS"? Are you against that also, or just when a gay couple do them?

Can our board members add 2 plus 2 and get the correct sum this time; because God knows they have refused to many times in the past.

This is so typical of homosexuals.
They feel entitled to exhorbitant salaries and benefits and retirement plans simply because they feel that how they like to have sex makes them more qualified than everyone else. It's also an identity that they chose for themselves; especially appealing to them is the false sense of moral "superiority" that whining about victimization gives to them.
Victimization is their crutch and the wellspring of their sense of entitlement.
Homosexuals feel that their chosen behavioral peculiarities entitles them to a lifetime of luxury without any effort or qualification or ethics on their part.

Stupid lawsuits like this are a big reason why health care costs continue to spiral upward.
But homosexuals don't care, they just want everyone else to pay all their bills and shower them a lavish income for being less-than-worthless.
what the hell are u talking about.

I wouldn't read Leviticus if I were you. No one else does. But here's a few highlights. Incredible of you to assume you know what (ahem) GOD almighty thinks.
Baby girls are twice as dirty as baby boys. 12:1-8
Don't mix seeds when sowing a field or wear a garment with mixed fibers. 19:19
If you have sex with a slave woman, you must then scourge her. 19:20
Don't round the corners of your head or mar the corners of your beard. 19:27
Handicapped people must not approach the altar. 21:16-23
God's instructions for buying slaves. 25:45-46
God places a dollar value on human life; women are worth less (50 - 60%) than men. 27:3-7
Children who curse their parents, adulterers, and homosexuals must be killed. 20:9-12
The unchaste daughters of priests must be burnt to death. 21:9
Homosexuality is an abomination to God. 18:22
List goes on and on...how come it's the last one I mentioned that so many care to hold on to?

I second this. It seems that some simply pick and choose which parts of the bible to obey based solely on personal opinion. The modern bible has been adapted, twisted and bent so many ways it'd be completely unrecognizable if it were compared to the original writings. It's baffling to me that anytime homosexuality is mentioned, religion is automatically entered into the conversation.
Having said that, I'm not religious or gay; simply an open-minded individual and what others choose to believe, think, or do with their bodies is their own right. If you aren't hurting anyone and it helps you sleep at night, that's great.
We live in the US where we have freedom of nearly everything and although the country is often split apart and pitted against each other, I think if we'd all start to love everyone just for the sake of loving, not out of hope for a reward and not hate or murder simply it's the right thing to do instead of fearing punishment, humanity would be all the better for it.
"..A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.-Albert Einstein.

So how much did they get? What was the settlement?
