Non-bullshit lawsuit

Posted in Skepdude by Skepdude on December 3, 2008

At least based on the details of the article.  Woman talks against gay rights in a private blog/webpage and she get’s canned from her HR job by the school she works for becasue “her views contradicted university policies”. Bullshit! Double bullshit! Triple bullshit! Unless the facts are not as presented in the article, the school has no business punishing an employee for expressing an opinion as a private citizen, regardless of the opinion. Oh and I can’t stand her opinion for the record. Here’s where she stands:

“I take great umbrage at the notion that those choosing the homosexual lifestyle are ‘civil rights victims,'” Dixon wrote in an online edition of the Toledo Free Press on April 18. “Here’s why. I cannot wake up tomorrow and not be a black woman.”

She also wrote: “There are consequences for each of our choices, including those who violate God’s divine order.”

Despicable. But even despicable opinions must be protected by free speech. Period! I hope she wins the lawsuit and the school is forced to hire her back and pay some damages. For the complete story check out the article at The Seattle Times.
