American Red Cross Fires Employee for Refusal to Celebrate "Gay and Lesbian Pride Month"Topics: Faith
Believe it, this really happened.
A Christian employee working at the American Red Cross, after expressing his concerns to senior staff about an e-mail from the diversity office notifying him that June was "Gay and Lesbian Pride Month," was fired from his job last month.I've nothing against gays as human beings, but I'll be damned if I'll support or celebrate a lifestyle I consider harmful to gays and their souls, and harmful to our society. So the ARC can forget about any donations from me or my family. According to Concerned Women for America's Culture & Family Institute director Robert Knight, there's an alarming double standard emerging in corporations and nonprofits. "If you are not in a specially protected group, you don't get the same consideration. More and more, Christians are being harshly disciplined or even fired for actions that would bring a slap on the wrist to a homosexual activist or feminist" (from the article)
Concerned Women for America (CWFA) reported that Michael Hartman, who had worked at the Red Cross for eight months, received an e-mail in late May distributed by Chief Diversity Officer David Wilkins which declared, "It is my pleasure to announce that June will be recognized as Gay and Lesbian Pride Month at national headquarters . . ."
