This just happened to a friend of mine:
Dr. Frank Turek was fired as a vendor for his political and religious views, even though those views were never mentioned or expressed during his work at Cisco.[From The Cisco Kid – Mike Adams]
Nothing wrong with his job performance; nothing wrong with anything he said to anyone. It’s just that a homosexual manager found out on the web that Frank believes it’s best to maintain the historic legal definition of marriage.
Cisco claims to be all about “Inclusion and Diversity.” Based on what happened to Frank, at least according to the side we have available to read here in this article, what it’s really about is defining a different group to exclude now than previously. Which is a delicate way of saying it’s hypocritical and blind: blind to the absolute logical impossibility of including all diversity of all kinds, for who would say that diversity should welcome a neo-Nazi alongside a Hasidic Jew? Diversity is a confused goal. In practice it becomes, for it must become, a banner under which (as I have said) a different group is excluded than previously.
So Cisco has decided that it’s wrong to hate diversity in sexual morality. Instead it’s okay to hate diversity in religious conviction. (I’m using “hate” in the idiosyncratic 21st century sense of “disagree with and set boundaries.” It never used to mean that, but it does now.)
Now for those who think that homosexual activism is harmless (“We’re only asking for the right to marry; how can that hurt you?”), I say, think again.
