However, I think the point Anonymous Coward was making is that if it were reversed, and someone lost their job for supporting same sex marriage, you'd never hear the end of it.

First thing to remember is that this is not someone who lost their job, it's a boss being rejected by his employees. That is a very special and unusual kind of situation, where normal power relationships are inverted. You can't really say the person in question is being oppressed here.

So if a company rejected their boss for agreeing with same-sex marriage, if the rest of the company was by and whole against it, I wouldn't be happy about it, but I would not claim they had done anything morally wrong (beyond to whatever extent I think holding such an opinion is morally wrong).

I find it strange that Uber doesn't try harder to fix this problem.

Not at all strange. They are sociopathic libertarian company devoted to "disruption", which is generally code for "we break the law if it gets in the way of us making money and we think we can get away with it".

In order to dial out, it is necessary to broaden one's dimension.
