Donovan,
        So in your view this fellow should have been coerced into lying about what he "respects and values?"
        It seems the goal of a non-discriminatory workplace can be achieved if, as here, the employee agrees he/she will not discriminate. 
       Isn't demanding a public declaration of dishonesty concerning one's private thoughts and infringing on the right to follow the religion or belief system of your choice is a rather draconian and unnecessary method of achieving such a goal?

Worker opposed to gays wins suit


By Amy Fagan
THE WASHINGTON TIMES
 
An AT&T Broadband employee who was fired after refusing to abide by company rules that he said violated his religious beliefs about homosexuality has won a federal court case. 
    Judge Marcia S. Krieger of the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado awarded Albert Buonanno of Denver $146,269 for lost salary, loss of 401(k) matching contributions and compensation for emotional distress in a Friday ruling released this week.
