What's The Only Job Left In America Where You Can Safely Oppose Same-Sex Marriage?
Big Government ^ | 4/8/2014 | BEN SHAPIRO

Posted on 04/08/2014 6:37:41 PM PDT by markomalley

This week, we found out that being the CEO of a major tech company has certain job requirements: decades of experience in the field, a brilliant contribution to the internet programming world, a stellar record of interpersonal relationships with people in all walks of life, and a personal view that same-sex marriages should be approved by the government. Have the first three and not the last? You’ll be outed, shamed, and ousted. It is now obvious that in America, the left and the media will celebrate as you are shamed and paraded through the streets in stocks if you do not approve same-sex marriage. They believe that the right to privacy somehow covers government approval of same-sex marriage, but not writing a check to back a campaign against that approval. Engage in business in any aspect of American society, and you may be subject not only to the dictates of government, but to the job-killing hatred of the mob.

So, is there any job left in America in which it is safe to abide by your religious views against same-sex marriage?

CEO: You’re the “face of the company.” Sure, the check you signed was personal. Sure, you didn’t use any company funds, have always abided by the non-discrimination rules of your company, and have never once been criticized for unfair treatment of homosexuals. That doesn’t matter...

Nun: So, you represent an institution that has for thousands of years considered homosexuality a sin. You tell children at a school for that religious institution that homosexual relationships are not as valuable for the production and raising of children as heterosexual relationships. You paraphrase the Bible and the Universal Catechism of the Catholic Church. Well, now you’re busted...

I predict that religious organizations will be the only “safe” place of employment for social conservatives. It’s a question of fitting in the office culture.

I predict you are dead wrong. Any religious organization that does not conform will be labeled a dangerous cult and hunted down. Re-education camps. Tanks. Napalm.

Well, if you’re employed as my personal assistant, then you’re probably safe. But the pay of $1 a year sucks.

Look at the last “old line” industries in the US. Those industries haven't lasted as long as they have by kowtowing to every politically correct or financial fad that has come along. Mining, farming, heavy manufacturing, and the railroads are the last vestiges of intrinsic wealth in the US.

I’m not sure that job is safe from those who would “muckrake”, I don’t know if it has been a ploy to get at this Dominican Sister over in Charlotte, NC. And I’ll leave it at that except that may not be an isolated incident.

Too many Dem votes at stake for anyone to DARE say a word about it.

But back then it was fine when feminists called marriage a license to rape... now we see it was all projection.

We need to fight back... their side is about 90% illusion. Remember we brought out almost a million people for the chick fil a protest and their side couldn't field two gay people per city - with the press willing to show up when the ‘two’ were there? I'm telling you - they've got great press but no bench strength..
