This is a but of a surprise to me. The Illitch family doesn't strike me as the type that would discriminate like this. They're conservative, for sure, but they're also among the most generous philanthropists in the Detroit area. And Michael Illitch is a very wide awake business person. I'm surprised. It'll be interesting to see what comes of this.

I don't eat Little Ceasar's pizza anyway, but I'd back off of it for a while if I did.

I don't know what it is about national take-out pizza chains, but they're ALL run by neanderthals. Herman Caine was typical. Little Ceasars is the same, and so is Dominos. I've been boycotting all of them since I was in college, which isn't saying much because their product sucks compared to most independent pizza shops.

The man's first problem is that he worked for Little Ceasars. Nevertheless, if it's the only job he can get in California, they should obey the law and treat employees equally. I'm surprised this hasn't already been litigated. Perhaps it's a vestige of ERISA and DOMA. ERISA needs to be updated to cover same-sex spouses pronto.

Years ago, a trip to Little Caesars for some bread sticks and marinara sauce caused the worst case of food poisoning that have ever experienced. I didn't eat pizza for over 10 years after that.

The sight of one of their stores still makes me cringe.

I call BS.

I've eaten there hundreds of times and the food was always fresh and delicious!

All it takes is ONE bad batch. I hope you never have to deal with such a thing yourself.

The pizza company may have an interesting case on health care and homosexual diseases and the cost especially when the personality changes of individuals to homosexual behavior was caused by pharmaceutical mind drugs and that the government was aware of the changes

You seem to be a case in point. Your meandering gibberish here is unintelligible.

You won't laugh when you're sued next.

I'll laugh when they try to sue a Halal shop and wind up with their throats cut; that's why they sue Christians who turn the other cheek and tend to obey the rule of law.

Government licensed sex segregated marriage came to America by force of court order not legislation. Undemocratic, the in power group pushing D.C.'s marriage law on the rest of the nation without the consent of the governed. The end of religious freedom along with civilization sacrificed to the left's attack on family to empower federal government.

Brian, how deep does your bigotry and idiocy run?

Here's a clue. The courts dealt with the issue because the existing laws were unconstitutional. Were you not an idiot, you could validate your argument that the bans were constitutional. I am not holding my breath that you can do so.

Speaking of pizza, I just recently past the halfway point of a scientific study I'm engaged in to see if it's possible to live on ONLY beer and pizza. And it's going very well !

Hey jaysus troll, you have borne false witness again. "Stupid" is only a valid excuse the first three times.
