    And Fox News flips out. Guess what Fox and Friends? The Owner has a right to fire the person if they are trying to impose their views on someone else.

    He knew better to make such remarks in the workplace, but he let his religion cloud his judgment. He also could of easily had talked to the manager about what was going on. He chose not to.

    Of course. If they were to say the exact things except about Atheism, I doubt that Fox would have a story about it. My point is that just don't talk about religion in the work place. Nothing good comes from it, ever. :lol:

    Thats right. You SHOULD get fired for voicing such an opinion- although I am quite sure anyone voicing the opinion that gay marriage is ok would get a pass. I am also sure that if the individual was fired for expressing support for gay marriage, the OP would be screamin bloody hell. MMMMM MMMMMM MMMMMM- nothin like a fully programmed lefty....

    Except I'm not screaming bloody hell. I'm commenting on a story I saw on Fox News. The woman was a homosexual who was married that he said those comments to. If he had said "I think Gay Marriage is Alright" there would be no problem because those are her views. He's not imposing any views on her in that case. That is where your problem lies.

    I have to doubt this person would have been fired if he were discussing opposition to traditional marriage........
