    Not everyone believes homosexuality is right. If it was going against his beliefs he did nothing wrong.

    Only because there was no way for him to know beforehand his company would volunteer him for a job like that. If working with the gay community isnt a companies normal policy and known to employees beforehand, then I think they have a right to kick up a fuss over being told to do something that may be against their religious or moral beliefs.

    He should have at least been told what he would be driving for.

    I suppose he's within his rights, but that doesn't make it right.

    the workforce is not a democracy. if you don't obey you can get fired. he has the right not to be in the parade, but not to keep his job.

    It's called FREEDOM of religion... and some people of religion think homosexuality is a SIN and do not want to associate with or promote SIN. Good for him standing his ground.

    A person has the right to be Amish too, but if their religion prohibits the use of a computer, and they want a job as a secretary, they're going to have to decide which is more important to them.

    Her wasn't told for what he was driving. They should have gotten a volunteer.

    Would you be as proud of him, if the group he was refusing to work with was a church?

    So it really is hate, that you respect here? The real truck-drivers hate for GLBT, and my proverbial truck-drivers hate for religion? You just respect hate?

    If my business was hired by a religious group, I would be a professional, and would expect the same from my employees. Unless the organization was a genuine hate-group (i.e. the KKK or the Westborough Baptist Church); My company would do the job we were hired to do.

    That is so wrong just because he doesn't personally agree with the homosexual lifestyle doesn't give him the right to just storm off like that. Just because you drove a truck with a float in a parade that is for gay pride doesn't mean that you personally are gay. Sounds like he is insecure about his sexuality to me. I do not partake in the homosexual lifestyle I love women too much but I respect those who are homosexual. They need to be treated with dignity and respect just like everyone else wants to be. That is what is wrong with our society we want to label people and be too concerned about our image and how society will think of us that we fail to grow as a community. If everyone practiced what so many preach about live and let live this world would be a much better place and there would be a lot less violent acts in this world.

    Of course, it depends on whether the driver had been informed of doing it prior to accepting. Furthermore, they didn't promise a float to the parade, did they?

    My choice is UNDECIDED
    The reason that I say this is. Why didn't the stupid company check out the driver to find one that wouldn't have a problem with this? The guy has a right to his opinion. But the company should have found someone who didn't have a problem with this. This should have all been checked out before hand.

    if he felt it was wrong it was wrong. not everyone agrees with gay rights religion or politics and other things. everyone has a differnet opinion on things. and its their right to stand for what they believe in period.

    I don't think that it's right for an employer to force someone to engage in politics that s/he doesn't want to engage in. To me, that's like an interviewer asking who I voted for last election.

    I don't like either answer. First, the company which volunteered the truck and driver should have made it clear to the driver exactly what he was going to do. There seems to be some unanswered questions here. Did the driver agree to work? Was he just told by his company to show up, but not told why? Was he paid? If he was volunteering his time, but not told why, he had every right to say no, even at the last minute.

    i think that bailing out was not the driver's decision to make; it was his employer's decision.
