I now live in Katy, TX, an upper class suburb of Houston, TX. Coming from California, where everything was very PC at work, where we would have a "holiday" party during the last week of December. Here in TX, I'm at a huge engineering company where Christmas is said outright, and every Monday there is voluntary Bible study meetings during lunch.
I guess it just depends on where in the country you're located.
who gives a fuck if you're "christian-owned"?!
discrimination is discrimination
shut that hell-hole down!
That's not discrimination, in any professional comapany's employee policy and procedures, there is something stating that you should keep your beliefs, whether it be religious or policital, to yourself.
If you don't, you can get fired for it, plain and simple.
Now if the person was fired because of race or gender, then someone can claim discrimination.
Regardless of the guy's motives or whatever you want to call it, you don't express those types of views at work, period. If you want to protest, don't do it at your own work place, while you're working!
This shouldn't be controversial. It should be controversial to hold the opposite view of inequality.
How sheltered are you? You do realize that if someone at a company with a professional atmosphere chooses to celebrate Christmas, they will get in trouble? It isn't just about gay right or anything like that. You could get fired for boasting about your religion just the same as you would be fired for putting down another religion.
Protesting, whatever the medium, is not acceptable at work, why is that so hard to understand? Yes, wearing a T-shirt supporting gay marraige, at a Christian centered company would qualify as protesting.
Because this isn't protesting, and should be acceptable.
Based upon what? The assumption that all Christian centered companies hate gay marriage?
Have you ever worked in a professional office environment? As for my "source", look in any companies policies and procedures, everything is clearly laid out regarding religion or politics in the workplace.
And yes, you can get in trouble for celebrating Christmas at certain companies. At one of my last engineering jobs, Christmas was coming around, and every year we have a "Holiday Party". Well, one of the department leads decided that he wanted to make flyers promoting the "Christmas Party", he was warned to replace Christmas with Holiday because the Christian holiday could offend some people.
If you don't work first hand in these types of places, don't speak on anything.
