A Massachusetts man has been fired from his sales position at the Logan Airport branch in Boston of Brookstone allegedly for telling a female manager that his Christian faith says homosexuality is wrong.
Peter Vadala was fired and the company says he violated a tolerance policy. But Vadala reports his dismissal came because he expressed his Christian view of homosexuality after a female manager made repeated references as she approached him four times during work hours to her plans to marry her lesbian partner.
"At the start of the day, she told me she was getting married. I told her 'Congratulations,' and asked, 'Where's he taking you on your honeymoon?" Vadala said....
You cannot give absolute power to aberrant thinkers. Sadly, much of the persecution probably issues from obsequious persons with concurring sentiments. (For a moment, I thought this person was fired for mispronouncing homosexuality. A poorly worded headline.)

"John Paul's wife": Can You Clarify What You Meant By "I think most of the church is back in the 1950s and doesn't realize how far the corruption has gone." ?
What Do You Mean By "the church" ?
What Do You Mean By "service" and "real help" ?
What Do You Mean By "Denial makes Christians useless to each other. ?
Are You Including "Self Denial" In Your "Denial makes Christians useless to each other." ?
According To My Physical, Psychological & Spiritual Knowledge & Understanding Of The Authorized Holy Bible-Scriptures, As Well As The Voice Of The One-&-Only Holy Spirit Of The Authorized Holy Bible Scriptures; DENIAL Makes Historic Authorized Holy Bible Judeo-Christians Very, VERY Useful To Each Other !
Especially In Their DENIAL Of Personal Sinful Habits & Customs:
"Teaching Us That, DENYING Ungodliness And Wordly Lusts, We Should Live Soberly, Righteously, And Godly, In This Present World;" 2 Timothy 3:5 KJV-B !
Tony, so sorry that happened to you, really. I think most of the church is back in the 1950's and doesn't realize how far the corruption has gone.

Rick: A Similar Incident Happened To Me When I Was A Sales Associate For Richman Bros. (A Mens & Womens Clothing Store That Has Since Gone Out Of Business) In Lombard, IL, In The Early '90s.
I Was Falsely Accused Of "Sexual Harrassment" Because I Did NOT Comply With The Sexual Advancements Of A Fellow Female African-American Employee.
She Even Went To The Point Of Physically Approaching Me; Then, Quickly Turning Around And Bending Over (As If She Was Picking Up Something From The Ground) And Physically Bumped Her "Seat/Rear-End Area" Against My "Frontal Loin-Region" !
I Quickly Backed Away, Without Saying A Word, And Left The Sales Floor & Took A 15 Min. Break (As I Was Shocked, Embarrassed & Ashamed That She Did That To Me Without Provocation).
Another Employee (A Female Assistant Manager) Saw The Whole Thing & Reported Me, NOT The Initiating/Real Offender, For Committing A "Sexual Harrassment" !
I Was Clearly The VICTIM Here; But, Because It Was A Coordinated-Effort & Evil-Conspiracy Of The "Two Women/Female" Employees' Word(s) Against The "One Man/Male" Employee's Word(s): It Boiled Down To Their Word(s) Against Mine !
