I would insert my divserse lawsuit up there a__.
You're in good glans with Allstate!.."
You're in good glans with Christian-hating Allstate!
I guess Allstate doesn't believe that the bill of rights applies to its own employees. I haven't checked, but I'd be willing to wager that Allstate started as an American company on American soil probably at least 40-50 years after the constitution was ratified, so how do they think that their own corporate policies take precedence?
The strategy behind Barber's lawsuit is an unusual one, said Matthew Finkin, law professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Contrary to popular belief, private companies in Illinois and in virtually every other state can fire workers for saying things that embarrass the company--a fact many bloggers have learned the hard way, he said.
Barber's theory is that his views on same-sex marriage constitute religious expression and thus are protected under federal civil rights laws.
The suit is phrased accordingly, saying Barber "felt led of God to write and submit [the article] for online publication."
Finkin said Barber's argument may be hampered by the fact that he does not quote Scripture to support his argument and instead roots his positions in statements about biology and traditional values. "Political polemics are not protected in Illinois," Finkin said.
Increasingly, corporations want anti nationalist, hyper modernist, anti American globalists working for them. Real Americans are viewed as people who need to be thrown out. Real Americans are viewed as small business people but not "corporate material."
A novel argument? Since "diversity" translates to "anti-Christian", how can this be anything but discrimination based on religion?
Calling Jay Sekulow.
Go to hell Allstate!</p>
Who decided to spell 'fiery' this way?
Never will I sign up for Allstate Insurance- let the queers have it.
"I'm thinking, `What business is this of yours?'" said Barber, 36, who had worked for Allstate for five years, mostly in corporate security. "This is something I did on my own time. This was my own viewpoint. ... [One supervisor] said, `Well, you know, here at Allstate we have a very diverse community.'"
Apparently not diverse enough to include those that do not agree with the homosexual lifestyle (no, I am not going to say "forced down their throats.....!) or practice free speech. It appears that eithe his supervisors or some co-worker probably made some complaint and Allstate had to roll over.
Conversely, if a publication printed his occupation without his permission, causing him damages, then he has a perfect right to pursue compensation from them. They should know better.
