Report: AZ worker fired for being on right side of history

by Jeremy Hooper

Want an example of TRUE persecution on the basis of belief? Oh, and one that comes at the hand of the LDS belief system? Well if so, go read what Jim Burroway has learned:

Employee Fired By LDS-Owned Firm for opposing Prop 102 [Box Turtle Bulletin]

"Banned, fired, & demoralized" vs. "Met with angry reaction from a group of people who are sick of having their civil, civil, civil (did we mention civil?) rights stifled by religion!" You decide who's really getting the raw end of the stick in this post-electoral aftermath!

Your thoughts

JH, the title of the Box Turtle Bulletin piece should say "opposing" rather than "supporting".

By the way, I got the headline wrong in my rush to publish it. It should read, "Employee fired by LDS-owned Firm for OPPOSING Prop 102"
