Sounds to me like a case of a hate crime and workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation. He needs to have them prosecuted and sued. Contact the ACLU and other organizations that may be able to help.

I don't understand why the perpetrator has not been charged with a hate crime since it seems his motive for allegedly attacking the victim was due to the victim's sexual orientation and anti-gay slurs were heard being used. Maybe there isn't a hate crime law in that state but the feds can step in on a hate crime issue since it is covered under federal law.

Isn't keeping an anti-gay post about an individual on the business's Facebook page and the person that posted it a form of cyberbullying and harassment?

Congratulations - your choice will result in death for you sooner. I guess that's actually congratulations to *us*, not you - your death will mean the gene pool will improve, and the world will be less ignorant. Winning!
