"The Nichols Hardware family regrets that this even has come to pass."

I assume they meant they regret the homophobic incident caused by their ex employee and not the socially required firing of that employee, but you can't tell from that snippet's writing.

They were forced? So you're admitting that "confirmed bachelor homophobes" such as yourself are an outgunned minority.

(You also cannot tell what you claim from that little snippet. Can't tell much of anything about their views on equal rights.)

Sure, like your buybull belt lunch counters ain't what they used to be. Sniffle.

And you're bearing false witness - he did not say that. He was hurling psychosexually aggrieved slurs around...and we don't even know that the target of his abuse, the Boy Scout, doesn't agree with him in his homophobic bigotry.

That's not all the fired bigot said. If that's all he said he still be selling mops.

I know you lament your loss of segregated lunch counters. That's what I said - they don't exist anymore.(Lunch counters still exist in places, btw, cretin.) Like you don't have your ultra homophobic Scouting anymore. it's become sort of unwillingly, pretend, semi progressive in recent years as corporate America made it plain that Scouting's homophobic policies needed to go.

Sniffle.

Corporate America is no source for moral overtones. Ah poo, bring back the alleged homophobic policies.

Scouts ain't what they used to be.

That's an interesting point. The obligation to maximize profits above every other consideration which 98% of publicly held corporations are legally subject to certainly does not lead to moral results. However since corporations want to hire and retain the most educated employees corporate America has been, if belatedly, a force for anti discrimination for some time. They can't be anti lgbt and attract those educated workers in this day and age.

Your opinion that discrimination reflects a "moral overtone" is noted, though. For the 500th time, bigot.

I don't have to say anything in most workplace; corporate America is overwhelmingly fully pro lgbt. And I don't disparage heterosexuality. We know who the bigots are. And they get fired when they pop their immoral, psychosexually disordered heads up from their homophobic foxholes.

And just what is wrong with heterosexuality? Are you a hetrophobe?

Morally straight.

The Boy Scouts have gone off of the correct path. from what I knew as a Scout.

Frankly my dear, I so not give a damn what corporate America thinks.

I said I don't disparage heterosexuality, cretin. And non fundies never said str8 people may not marry, adopt, serve openly, have sex in private. We know who the bigots are - the stinking, psychosexually troubled homophobes.
