    Yes, it is job compliance, it doesn't make it any more acceptable. Again what if Don Jones came out and said, according to his religious beliefs, he believed that homosexual behavior or gay marriage were deeply immoral - should he be fined or be threatened with job loss?
    Do you not believe in a free market? Are you saying you are against at-will employment?

I mean if he came out in support of homosexual players or gay marriage he would be lauded! Why does one opinion bring shame and the necessity of re-education and the other opinion bring praise?

    My wife has to take an online Multicultural Sensitivity Training through Texas A&M twice a year -- she says it's the biggest joke, because you can't "pass" until you answer all the questions the way they want them answered, REGARDLESS of what you think or believe. Most of them "know the answers", and just breeze through the required online course in two or three minutes. A major waste of time, but it makes the liberals feel good.

    And that's what liberals are all about --- "feeling good". Not necessarily solving any problems, but feeling good that they "tried".

    It's exactly what I made the poor little butter bar (Second Lieutenant) admit. It's enforced viewpoint compliance. There is no "diversity" in thought or word. You either speak what they tell you to, or else.

    Well, at least they're actually just sensitivity training classes. The Soviet Union used to use "re-education camp" as code for "death/slave labor camp".
    I often wonder what these classes are like. What if a Muslim, or conservative Jew or Christian said that they believed that homosexual behavior was deeply immoral. What would they say? Tell you that you shouldn't believe these things? How would the conversation go?
