Re: Man Fired For Expressing Opinion About Gay Marriage - November 17th 2009, 01:14 AM

Okay, I can't decide who was in the wrong here. I kind of get what they're saying about the whole not expressing personal opinions at the work place thing. I mean, it's your job. It's not somewhere that you just get to talk about whatever, and express every single opinion that you have, because that kind of stuff may get you into trouble. At the same time, I really don't like the fact that you can't express your opinion when you're working because this should be a country based on freedom of expression. This should mean freedom of expression no matter where you are, and obviously this isn't something that we have yet, but I think it should be. I don't think people should have to worry about who's listening to what they're saying. Then again, I contradict myself because sometimes I'd like to just get the job done and go home without having to hear a bunch of political arguments flare up at work because we would be 'allowed' to talk about them there. I don't know. I'm also 50/50 on this one. Gahhh.

or act like you it doesn’t make me
any better or worse”
