I often find Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality a bit too strident for my tastes, but there's considerable wit and truth to his most recent comment concerning the mass protest of homosexuals "calling in gay" to protest the voters of California voting for Proposition 8:
Now they’re staying home from work and “calling in gay” to protest Prop 8. But wasn’t it just a short time ago when the homosexual lobby was moaning that all across America people could be fired “just because they’re gay”? Now they’re taunting their employers using their gayness. Gee, it looks like their jobs are pretty safe!He does ask an important question: if an employer fires someone for "calling in gay" instead of showing up to work, is that discrimination? Obviously not--just like if, when I still had a regular employer, I had "called in white" instead of scheduling a vacation day.
