Man Fired for Supporting Real Marriage

World Net Daily reports that a Virginia man has been fired from his job for displaying a pro-marriage message on the rear window of his pickup truck.
The man, Mr. Luis Padilla who was employed in the Human Resources Department of Cargill, a company that provides food and agricultural products and services throughout the world.

The Message read, “Please vote for marriage on Nov. 7”, the company claimed that this message was a form of harassment, Cargill issued this statement. “Although Mr. Padilla is clearly entitled to believe whatever he wants, he has no legal right to act in a manner that violates our company policies of equal employment opportunity, non-harassment and tolerance of differences."

A Cargill spokesman also stated: "When ordered to do something relatively simple – remove from his truck two signs that other employees could have reasonably construed as a show of hostility and intolerance toward homosexuals – Mr. Padilla decided to ignore the warning and disobey the order.

"By refusing to obey the order, he demonstrated that he could not be trusted to enforce and promote our employment policies because his personal beliefs mattered more to him."

This action taken by Cargill against Mr. Padilla is a clear cut case of political correctness way out of control. It is nothing less than a case of corporate cronies attempting to force their intolerant anti-Christian agenda down the throats of the little guy. By taking this type of action, Cargill has shown its blatant intolerance of other peoples viewpoints and beliefs, proving again that the whole intolerance thing is just a one-way street to these left-wing bigots.

An employee has the right to display his/her beliefs, on his/her personal vehicle, whether that vehicle is parked on company property or not. Cargill has violated Mr. Padilla’s civil rights, and should pay a heavy price for the hateful, intolerant actions it has taken against this gentleman.

Let Cargill hear it! Email them! Jam their phone lines, and let them know in NO uncertain terms that this type of behavior by corporations in the United States of America, will NOT be tolerated!
