Personal Religious Views Can Get You Fired

(Cross-posted at The Point.)

My friend Frank Turek was hired by Cisco Systems in 2008 to conduct team building and leadership training. It was so well-received that his contract was extended and the training expanded.

But last month, Frank was fired when one of his students Googled him and found he had written a booklet critiquing same-sex marriage. Frank never mentioned the book or his personal views, and the manager -- who loved the training sessions -- never read the book or heard Frank talk about it at Cisco.

But he called human resources anyway, and in the name of diversity and inclusion, Frank was immediately fired -- for his personal religious views.

I’m hearing more stories like Frank’s all the time. This is why the Manhattan Declaration is so important. It clarifies the stance Christians must take on issues of life, marriage, and religious freedom no matter the price. Come to and read the Declaration and join the nearly half a million Christians who have signed it.


Once again, we see that hypocrisy is alive and well in our culture. The same gays who rant about people calling them "fag" or "queer" will turn right around and refer to those who don't accept gay marriage as "homophobes" or "breeders." And the same lobby which decries discrimination against themselves uses economic boycotts against the Salvation Army and other faith-based groups. It seems their two-faced tactics bring out cowardice in others as well.
You know that old adage, "Salvation is free--but it costs you everything you have and are"? So many laugh that off as a cliche. I'll bet Frank Turek isn't laughing. I don't think we should be, either.
