ExxonMobil votes against expanding pro-homosexual employment policy for the 17th time

Homosexual activists are outraged after ExxonMobil once again refused to explicitly include sexual preference in its anti-discrimination policy, marking the 17th time the company has done so.

New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli has led the charge to add sexual preference to the gas company’s equal opportunity policies, which currently state that individuals employed by or seeking employment with the corporation will be evaluated without regard to “race, color, sex, religion, national origin, citizenship status, age, genetic information, physical or mental disability, veteran or other legally protected status.”

ExxonMobil argues that their “zero-tolerance” standards for discrimination already exceed federal regulations and apply equally to every worker, regardless of sexual preference. The company has also offered full benefits to legally “married” same-sex couples since the Supreme Court struck down key provisions of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in 2012.

But homosexual activists say it’s not enough for ExxonMobil to simply declare all discrimination out-of-bounds: they want homosexuals and transgender people specifically highlighted as off limits.

Some gay activists have called on Barack Obama to issue an executive order forcing the company to comply with their demands.

At 1-3% of the population, I’m sure they’ve met the quota in normal hiring....

They just want the reasonable monopoly on drilling on the backside.

If you want to drill in the Middle East, you must be careful as to exactly what type of ‘drilling’ you support.

Don’t think for a minute that Exxon is any different than other big companies - but in the case of Exxon, they have a LOT TO LOSE by not taking on the gay mafia.

Please forgive me...i am so BAD! I started to read this article and a vision popped into my head of a bunch of roughnecks in Hard hats and pink leotards slaving away on an offshore oil rig.

Too bad. Sodomy is not a prerequisite for oil exploration, nor a corporation’s bottom line.

I agree!

I had it for my tagline for a long time, then it disappeared.

I got it back, though! :-)

I can remember staying at a hostel during a cycling tour. A guy woke us up with a Bible verse, but to his chagrin, I suggested reading that verse. He did.

It’s so succinct and sparkles with clarity and truth! :-)

And, actually, it is in line with the subject matter of this thread.

If the people who are trying to bully Exxon/Mobile knew the Truth, it would indeed set them free.

If the homos would just recognize that being a homo is a mental disorder, then they’d be covered under the policy.

As long as they contend that their perverted lifestyle is normal, then they are outside the discrimination policy.

What are the “openly gay” homosexuals going to do? Boycott them? ROTFL! Sexual deviants are sickos.

DiNapoli is like Cuomo. They just can’t stand to have those evil free enterprise type organizations in New York. Gotta find a way to ‘encourage’ them to get outta da state!

Exxon has already given in to the homosexual activists and give benefits to the gays and their lovers.

Yep. Already covered.

It’s becoming beyond tiresome to see the constant pushing for special status by the LGBT crowd.

Isn’t that kind of what they always say?

" . . . will be evaluated without regard to “race, color, sex, religion, national origin, citizenship status, age, genetic information, physical or mental disability, veteran or other legally protected status.”

So they will hire a mentally disabled person to be their corporate spokesperson, and a physically disabled person to perform complex physical tasks?

They’re covered already under the “mental disability” protection.
