And the usage of the poor and homeless as a pawn is a nice touch too.
Explain to me how this isnít bigotry again?
Unless I'm misreading it, isn't the issue not that have refused to hire gay people, but that they have refused to offer benenfits to the partners of their gay employees.
Which is still not right, but significantly different from "we're not going to hire teh gayez"
I'd be curious to know whether they currently offer benefits to defacto spouses of employees, which, IMO would make it less of an issue of opressing gay rights, no?
Can anyone shed a little light on that for me?
