Firefighters forced to join in 'Gay Pride' parade
WorldNetDaily.com ^ | August 7, 2007

Posted on 08/07/2007 3:43:15 AM PDT by Man50D

Four firefighters are suing the city of San Diego for being forced by their superiors to attend the annual "Gay Pride" parade where they endured a barrage of sexual taunts and lewd gestures.

San Diego's fire chief, Tracy Jarman, is an open lesbian who called the July 21 parade a "fun event" in which "all employees are encouraged to participate."

But the firefighters said, unlike previous years, they were ordered into uniform to participate in the parade in their fire truck, despite repeated their protests.

The firefighters' legal counsel, the Thomas More Law Center, said the men were "left with the Hobson's choice of either violating their conscience or being disciplined for disobeying a direct order."

The firefighters, described as devoted husbands and fathers, said they were subject to the most vulgar kinds of sexual harassment.

The firemen should have told their lesbo chief to take her order and cram it up her perverted ass, THEN filed a lawsuit for harassment.

They can only push you around if you let them.

What the hell has happened to San Diego, anyway? Sheesh.

"...the firefighters also were targets of sexual gestures, including exposure of genitals, blowing kisses, grabbing of the crotch, rubbing of nipples, tongue gestures and men hugging and kissing one another passionately – many wearing make-up and dressed like women..."

In other words...just another day in the land of fruits and nuts.

I am going to go out on a limb here, and predict "she is the he in they."

Over the course of three hours, they heard statements such as, "show me your hose," "you can put out my fire," "you're making me hot," "give me mouth-to-mouth," "you look hungry, why don't you have a twinkie (from a man wearing a "Girth and Mirth" t-shirt)," and "blow my hose."

When they refused to respond to the crowd, some in the crowd turned hostile and started shouting, "F--- you firemen" and others began "flipping them off."

... and then every last one of said cowards -- each and every narcissistically exhibitionist, courageous-only-in-the-safety-of-a-crowd one of 'em -- proudly minced their way back home, smugly congratulating themselves on their own bravery and overall wonderfulness.

Guaranteed.

The issue is NOT a lesbian fire chief.....

The issue is this particular lesbian fire chief forcing the men under her command to participate in this sexual debauchery that she, the fire chief, obviously endorses
(and the firemen do not).

I think this would be like female workers compelled to dress up and go on stage at a strip club. I can’t imagine any worse form of sexual harrassment.

If they were forced into this they have a terrible union...Something tells me they probably got double time for participating and only after collecting their “extra” check they realized they were stupid for volunteering for the job that day.

You’re missing my point.....

If this person were a lesbian fire chief, and did her job of managing the fire department, and putting out and/or preventing fires, I doubt if she would be getting any flak.

The reason we’re all posting is because she ordered these firemen to participate in an “event” that has nothing to do with their job as firemen and is against their beliefs and values. To have these men subjected to these perversions and sexual taunts against their will is outrageous. They should have told their chief, as a group, we will NOT participate and let the chips fall where they may.

What if the chief had been a Christian and ordered all the
firefighters to attend a Christian Bible reading?

Moonbatapolis had the same problem with a lesbo fire chief. In this case she was using the fire department to look for “dates”. Amazing that Moonbatapolis had the backbone to fire her (although some lawsuits encouraged the City of Flakes to do so as well).

This issue IS most certainly a lesbian fire chief. And the reason we are having this go on is because we’ve been cowed into not making it an issue. It is the issue, because sodomites in positions of authority will use that authority to push their wickedness out into the open. They want the rest of us to give up and keep quiet and let them popularize their sin.

She just is not a Christian. The Fire Department is not a private enterprise, and therefore Christian fire chiefs do not force firefighters to attend Christian Bible reading . . .even though it would never hurt them.

Let’s not tolerate sodomy. Let’s not tolerate it displaying itself in public. Let’s not tolerate sodomite officials bringing it out of their “closet” at all.

Apparently I am not missing the point. That is what I meant. Her lesbianism is the issue. It's because she's a lesbian that she's ordering them to do this. Otherwise, I doubt she'd care one way or the other.

Now that you mention it, I remember that “incident”
with the cruising lesbian fire chief.

LOL! Moonbatapolis....that’s a good one!
I’ve never heard Minneapolis called that before.
The sad thing is, the same name can be applied to thousands of cities and towns across the not so United States.

I certainly do NOT tolerate sexual perversion, especially when it’s forced on others.

That “parade” was disgusting and the chief’s requirement that the firemen participate was even more revolting.

Again, if she kept her sexual preferences to herself and just did her job as fire chief, I wouldn’t have a problem with her. The fact that she’s using her position to promote a warped agenda is grounds for her immediate firing in my book. I’m highly pissed at what these firemen had to endure.

My reference to a Christian fire chief requiring that all firefighters attend Bible School was meant as a “what if”
type of situation. If such a scenario were to happen, these same, “tolerant” liberals would be screaming bloody murder, Katie Couric would spend half of her newscast on this.....in her words....”deplorable” situation, and the fire chief would be looking for a new job at Wal-Mart.

Again, she using her position as fire chief to promote her lesbian agenda.

If she’s fired, it won’t be because she’s a lesbian;
it’s because she’s using her position as fire chief to
promote a homosexual agenda that is completely unrelated to
her job. She deserves to be fired, and I hope the firemen win their lawsuit.

The flood gate has already been opened. There’s no stopping it now. What is the chance of a lesbian being in such a position and her keeping it to herself? ZERO. SHE SHOULD NOT HAVE THE JOB. Americans should be able to deny anyone who is of such filthy ilk any job. THAT is the only way they will keep it to themselves.

Got one accross the parking lot at my condo, could be this one’s twin, a BN chief I think. Butch as they come; muscle shirts, compression shorts, new Mustang muscle car. Decent neighbor by and large though.

Funny thing, for all her flexing and posturing it was the fat old truck driver and and a young construction worker that caught the mugger of old ladies last year in our parking lot.

I agree with you. It’s similar to what’s happening in our school district with the homosexual video being shown to 3rd graders. It wouldn’t have happened in this district, imo, if the curriculum director/ass’t superintendent wasn’t a man-hating woman with a gay son and sister - both activists.

You're absolutely wrong about that. Only in a PC world gone mad could a woman even be accepted onto an FD. and in said mad, mad world could a freakin' lesbian, that could never qualify to be a real firefighter be put in charge of real firefighters.

I hope the people of SD are satisfied w/ the lunacy they've created.

Their direct supervisor IS a heterosexual. He may have been following orders, but nonetheless, he was following orders because HE TOO was afraid of crossing the Gay mafia that runs that part of San Diego.

In my life I have worked with gay paeople, male and female, who never made their sexuality an issue in any way shape or form. And as long as they don’t throw it in my face....I don’t care what they do in their lives. I have also worked with a great many Christians of all kinds and over the years I have had a few born agains definatly get in my face with it. That can really make a long night shift longer. I don’t care for either situation.

That’s what I said in a previous post....she has an agenda.

If she had kept her sexual preference to herself, there would NOT have been a problem. She chose to make it an issue, and because she’s pushing an agenda NOT related to firefighting, she should resign or get fired.

No your wrong the issue is that a woman runs the fire department. The only reason she has the job is because of affirmative action, and the fact that standards had to be lowered to let women pass. By her being a Lesbian, they get a twofer.

In San Francisco, at one point they were giving preference to Asian Females. Which meant that a 4’ 11” 90 lb minority was given preference over a 6’6” 200 lb white guy. Who do you think was better able to pull someone from a fire?

We need to stand up to the stupidity of affirmative action, that puts women in jobs they cannot handle. There would not be a problem if a married white guy was in charge.

Of course it’s a PC world. Was this person promoted to fire chief because she’s a woman, or because she’s a lesbian? Only the libs on the city council can answer that question.

If a woman can carry a grown man out of a burning building, then she should be considered for a firefighting
post.....I doubt that many women can. Then again, lesbians tend to be more muscular than heterosexual women,
so there we are.

I’m sure there were male heterosexuals who were more qualified to be fire chief, but that’s what happens when liberalism and “affirmative action” are the major factors in hiring.

Then they would get religion and morality and we would not have perverts in charge of making life or death decisions. We would all be better off if we did not exclude Christianity from government, and if the firemen said a prayer before they fought a fire.

I think it was done as a way of harrasing them into resigning. Do it so we can find PC replacements.

I bet a few of these four men had families and were good at their jobs. It is the only way the left wingers could maximize the discomfort to get them to quit.

The harassment will not end with just this, they will be ordered to special diversity training, special ride alongs for civilians until they reach the point where their lesbian firechief can say they either were fired for refusing lawful orders or quit because they could not do the job.

“In my life I have worked with gay paeople, male and female, who never made their sexuality an issue in any way shape or form.”

Then HOW did you even know that they were sodomites (you use the word “gay,” but they are certainly not). They came out with it in some “way, shape or form.” Sodomites will now always come out with it in some “way, shape or form” because they have now forced the door open. You seem to be approving of them.

A Christian who witnesses to you of Christ and the Gospel of the Grace of God is concerned for your eternal safety and felicity.
