If you don’t believe homosexualitiy is not a choice, you can’t work here

Toe the line, or get fired. Seems society took a long time to realise the true value of free speech only to have the pengulim swing back and have it removed again. But these days it’s ok, because those evil conservatives are the ones being picked on.

Funny thing is, they think that by using “legal means” – excuses that are plausible under the law, that they’re different to those that went before.

You see, Crystal Dixon made the mistake of believing that this whole silly idea of “freedom of religion” also applied to our institutions of higher learning. She foolishly asserted in her Toledo Blade op ed that as far as her religious beliefs are concerned, homosexuality is a choice made by the individual instead of some genetic predisposition, that someone chooses to engage in homosexual activities instead of assuming that being gay is forced upon one by “nature.”

Of course, Dixon based her entire op ed on her Christian religious beliefs. It was no hate filled rant and was quite civil, even tempered, and to the point. But the gay mafia inside the University of Toledo must be awfully powerful. Or, at the very least, fear of them was enough to stifle — no, execute — Mrs. Dixon over what the president of UoT must imagine is her wretched religious extremism.

President Dr. Lloyd Jacobs dashed off a letter summarily firing Mrs. Dixon from her $134,383 a year job as associate vice president for employee resources.

There’s links to all the columns and responses, so judge for yourself if this dismissal is justified.

Update: Instapundit puts it well: “THEY TOLD ME THAT IF GEORGE W. BUSH WERE RE-ELECTED, people who spoke out on civil rights would be fired, even from university jobs. And they were right!

Heh, sarcastic sod.
