Man Fired for Speaking Truth

FoxNews reports Peter Vidala being fired from his position as second deputy manager at a Brookstone store at Boston's Logan Airport for telling a fellow employee, "Regarding your homosexuality, I think that's bad stuff."

Apparently she knew what he believed about homosexuality and four times within a short time she spoke about her homosexual "marriage" seeking to maybe rub it in a little. His response got him fired as she reported him to human resources.

FoxNews reported Vidala saying
that he felt "intentionally goaded" by the manager to comment on her relationship. "She knew how I felt about homosexuality," he said. "When you talk to someone about something like that, you want their support. She was kind of looking into my eyes for that social cue for me to say, 'I'm happy for you.' But I really couldn't feel happy for her."

Vidala proclaims to be a follower of Jesus Christ and simply stated his beliefs in response to her goading. The employer said, "Brookstone is an equal opportunity employer, meaning that we maintain a healthy, safe and productive work environment free from discrimination or harassment based on race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, national origin, physical or mental disability, or other factors that are unrelated to the Company’s legitimate business interests.

They may think they are an equal opportunity employer, but they just showed that it doesn't apply to religious beliefs.
