  • What If The Shoe Was On The Other Foot?

    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014...g-fights-back/

    A newspaper editor has filed a discrimination complaint with the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against his former employer, claiming that he was wrongfully terminated for penning a personal blog post about homosexuality and the Bible.
    Journalist (Liberty Institute)

    Journalist Bob Eschliman was fired from his position over a controversial blog post he wrote (Liberty Institute)

    Bob Eschliman, 41, the former editor-in-chief of the Newton Daily News in Newton, Iowa, is arguing that he was illegally fired May 5 from his position at the newspaper, which is owned by Shaw Media, for publicly sharing his religious beliefs.
    So what if this was a gay editor writing on his personal blog and supporting gay marriage or arguing that homosexuality was biblically acceptable. What if his company fire him because of that opinion - would the liberals be howling injustice?

      Yes and who we get to punish for holding contrary views. What happen to the old liberal line - "I may not agree with what you say, but I will fight to the death for your right to say it?" That was always a lie.

          It may not have always been a lie, but it sure has been for the past several years.
          Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

            This. I think it was once very much what people strove for. But now it's "Fight for your right to say it if I agree with you, and fight to censor you if I don't".

                  It looks as if the proprietor does not want his newspaper associated with extremely offensive homophobic language like “Gaystapo”. Seems fair to me.

                    If you think Gaystapo is "horribly offensive" you've obviously been living in a bubble.
                    "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

                    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

                      Well to me, what he said was very accurate. And exactly what we have seen from the homosexual left.

                        Yeah, I think when the liberals were fighting for recognition and "equality" and "tolerance", they were quite keen on "tolerance".... but when THEY hold the majority, or the power of the press, it's SQUASH THE OPPOSITION LIKE A BUG!

                          I must've missed that part when supporters of gay rights formed a regime that rounded people up, sent them to concentration camps, performed cruel and inhumane experiments on them, and systematically exterminated them, based on nothing more than their innate identity.

                            If you are offended by people using terms like the N word, or any other slur, then you have no ground to stand on by using a slur like this one. It is not even a real phobia. This term is offensive to me and those who believe like me.

                              Why must people be killed for something to be unacceptable?
