That's right. You have the same right to be fired or not be hired as the rest of us. You also have the same right to be denied housing as the rest of us. Welcome to the club.

Yawn...

Kirk, I was going to go into detail about this post...but it seems that you are still using the same logic as the "we are the spanish inquistion" thread...now the Pope is a Nazi.

So there really is no point in going further...

You seem to be an angry guy and name calling everyone who doesn't think like you isn't helping.

try to have a great day :)

p.s. You talk of concentration camps, the Pope doesn't. (but a certain Democratic president who did actually rounded up US citizens and put them into camps, and yet you dont compare FDR to a Nazi...telling on your part)

What FDR was wrong and a knee jerk reaction to Japan's attack. All True. And, in fact, I have condemned the actions of FDR.

However Ratzinger was, in fact, a member of the Nazi Party in Germany. So saying that someone is a Nazi when he was a Nazi isn't calling them names.

His justification, when asked about this, was that "everyone was a Nazi during those times". Clearly that is not true...those who refused to become a Nazi certain faced difficulties but you either stand up for your morals and ethics or you don't. Perhaps if more people had NOT joined the Nazi party things may not have gotten quite so bad during the 30's and 40's.

Really Tyler, the Pope and 'the church' and people can believe whatever choose to believe but don't force it down my throst, don't tell me I'm bad and evil if I don't believe the same way and don't try to force my government to conform to your beliefs and deny my equal rights as a tax paying citizen.

Their right to swing their fist stops at the tip of my nose.

The Nazi comparison rings a bit hollow from a guy who defended Robert Byrd and his former enlistment and climb to the upper levels of the Klan. Oh yea, I forgot, Byrd reformed. Is the Pope still in the National Socialist German Workers Party? Byrd was an adult when he signed on... I think the Pope was what? 7 years old?

By that same standard you use...should the government tell me I am bad and force their morality down my throat if I choose to drive my dodge ram 1500...after all, i am told constantly that driving on the blood of soldiers every time I fill up.

The Pope can make his wishes known as much as Al Gore.

And you can disagree with his views all you want, but you arent going to convince a soul to agree with you when you call the Pope a nazi or imply he wants to have all homosexuals legally killed. He's never said it, he's never implied it. He can call homosexuality a sin all he wants...but he isn't calling on the masses to start lining you up. Unlike a certain other religion I can think of.

Beast is wrong once again. Protections exist in the law protecting many Americans and Pennsylvanians subject to bigoted discrimination in employment and housing. The GLBT community is excluded from those protections. You cannot fire and evict someone based on the fact they're female, for example. A transgender man can be fired or evicted because he thinks he's a woman. Once more you expose your ignorance and stupidity.

If I didn't know better I'd accuse you of trying to get Kirk fired. That comment will be deleted for that reason.

It isn't Kirk's "opinion" that the Pope was once a Nazi. That's historical fact.

Century 21 is not likely to fire me for being gay or a man or 5'8" or 47 years old or anything else. But ONB is right, my boss could fire me JUST because I'm gay...and while it's wrong it's also legal. Everyone I work with knows I'm gay....I don't hide it from anyone. I've been there well over 4 years, if they wanted to fire me they've had plenty of opportunity.

If people think I'm speaking for my company when I write on this blog, they are truly ignorant. When I speak for my company it's on the company website or on company letterhead, any other time I speak for me. Besides everyone I work with knows how I feel about the Pope and all organized religion...I don't hide that either.

You can't OUT me ONB and you can't throw threats at me (veiled or otherwise)...I lay it ALL on the table and I'm not afraid to let the chips fall where they may.

What do you think you can hold over me that I haven't already expressed? I don't hide anything...everyone knows I work at Century 21, it's no great secret. I'm not afraid to admit it.

Where do you work ONB? Why are you so afraid to reveal your identity? What are you hiding?

Put up or shut up!

You don't need to delete her comment John, I'm not afraid of this pitiful person
