Why does she think she may not be fired? She apparently thinks people may be fired just for being openly lgbt...or merely being thought to be lgbt. Why can't she be fired for being a stupid bigot no educated person would want to have to collaborate with at work?

I feel sorry for poor Madeline. I hope she gets a new job soon. One with more pay and where her boss isn't a gay loving liberal scumbag. If she lived here I'd hire her!

You could n't hire anybody, Clark. Unemployed trolls don't own a business.....they sit in front of a computer all day posting stupid comments.

I am not buying it, there is always more to the story than conservatives say. They always play the victim.

There's no employment protections in the law for anti gay bigots. The anti gay bigots could try to claim they were fired for their "religious" beliefs, but I suppose someone with enough money and will to litigate could make an argument that the firing was for being hateful towards her co workers, not for believing due to some silly, mistranslated book or other that homosexuality is wrong.

You're right, anyone with an opinion should be fired. Unemployment rate 100%.

Your whiny defense of your fellow white supremacists [sic] is noted, but I think odious bigots should be fired. Including homophobes, who are all deeply psychosexually troubled and uneducated at the most basic level.

You are the most psychosexually troubled and uneducated person posting in this forum. Tommy is a close second.

Don't be so modest, closet case. You ribald tales of urinating on other men all up and down the East Coast have more than secured you the victory.

Urinating on other men's shoes in public restrooms as a defense would not typically be understood as a rational "defense."

But maybe in fundieworld....

That claim does not speak to the matter of your urinating in rage on other men in public restrooms, just fyi.
