Google is set to begin covering a cost that gay and lesbian employees must pay when their partners receive domestic partner health benefits, according to a report in the New York Times.
The increased pay is largely to compensate these workers for an extra tax that heterosexual married couples do not pay. The increase will be retroactive to the beginning of the year, the newspaper said.
Google is not the first large company to make up for the extra tax, the Times reported, adding that Googleâ€™s move could inspire its Silicon Valley competitors to follow suit, as they compete for the same talent....

I don't see a problem with it. I reject gay marriage, but I see no reason to withhold financial benefits from a gay couple that we hand out to a married couple (though they should add unmarried straight couples too). As I've said before, we can't punish worldly people with worldly things, simply because they are worldly. They will receive their due punishment at the Judgment. Let the tares grow.
This country has literally lost its love for our founding fathers who gave us freedoms othr countries never had n we have repaid them by insted of keeping it the land of the free.. we have made it the land of the crimenally immoral... Dear God forgive us this country is decaying because we failed to keep You in everything as thr foinding fatjers did! Amen
There are other options to Google and I am grateful to SermonAudio for carrying this article and keeping us informed on Google's employee policies.
Google may do as they please, but I have the freedom to limit my use of their services and have done so: I've removed all my blogs from Blogger (Google owned), canceled my Google+, YouTube, and G-mail accounts and now make an effort to use other search engines.
