Your blatant lack of empathy combined with a seemingly non-existent intention to give people a second chance - they may have changed a lot since the transgressions in the past - is depressing. Behavior such as yours makes things worse. I hope I have gravely misunderstood what you actually stand for.

For starters, he expresses no remorse. It's blame blame blame

So no, he isn't hirable under any circumstances. Neither are you from your attitude.

So you were DUI (enough right there for me to pass you up for a job as I don't think you're a good person putting peoples lives at risk on the road) and 20 grams is certainly enough for any court to believe you had intent to sell it. Besides, you knew it was illegal but did it anyway. You now want to blame society for your stupidity.

The Westboro church isn't Christian. Just because someone claims they are Christian doesn't mean they are. The Christian faith is about believing in Jesus and treating those around you as you would treat yourself. The Westboro's believe neither as they held their preacher above Christ himself and certainly don't treat others as they would treat themselves.

Almost no one treats every part of the Bible literally. The parts that are to be taken as interpretations are pretty clear on the fact they are interpreted. This strawman atheists poor out about fundamentalists and literal interpretation is old, played out and not substantiated in fact.

The Bible is and always has been referred to as the "Inspired Word of God." Just as a movie is inspired by the book it uses as source material so the Bible is inspired by God but interpreted by man.

As to your other strawman about hate from pro-life, anti-gay etc I can show you ten times the amount of hate from your side just in your post alone. So get over yourself.

Because of people like you and your knee jerk bullshit in denying people their own personal opinions I am actively refusing to employ not just gays but also liberals and democrats. I will never again tolerate your type in my presence. You are the scum of the earth and will reap the consequences of your personal hate and intolerance.

People's attitudes on this are extremely hypocritical. We rail against hatred and discrimination, and yet here we are with a "BURN THE HEATHENS!" mob mentality the second we find out about someone donating a relatively measly $1000 to Prop8. With the way some people are acting, you would think we just discovered that the guy was a raging pedophile. Did he really give out anywhere near the amount of damage that he and Mozilla are now receiving? Is this how we win the battle against discrimination? By replacing one form of irrational hatred and bias with another?

We may view it as poetic justice, but it's hypocrisy; plain and simple. People love to hate. The only thing that ever changes is who the current easy target is. Plenty of CEOs are vile, unscrupulous pigs who cheat on their wives and sexually harass female employees, but you won't see this sort of backlash against them because it isn't the current political hot topic.

Well, when your side of the argument is a crowd of self loathing homosexuals with absolutely no moral compass and a penchant for flying off the handle coupled with a need for societal acceptance of perverted behavior you can't expect anything less than torches and pitch forks.

If the torch & pitchfork crowds are going after this dude now because he supported CA Prop 8, shouldn't they also call for a boycott of the state of California? You know, since a majority of their voters voted for the infamous Proposition 8 and passed it. I would say that voting for it counts as supporting it, right?

Logic means nothing to these people. They'll call you a horrible person for not washing your hands after going to the bathroom but throw you a fucking parade and cheer you for hours because you stick your dick in someones ass.

We aren't dealing with rational human beings. They are perverted, mentally ill people. Unless you join in their illness you are to be mocked, called a bigot and run out of town. There is no room for dissent.

Even if I accepted that, it still isn't the case here. But even that is a stretch because the "Hollywood" version of slavery did exist. The agricultural industry of the Southern United States was based on it, and the issue resulted in a civil war.

The slavery angle is a stupid analogy by privileged and highly paid tech workers.

Now I know you're delusional. The civil war had absolutely nothing to do with slavery until Lincoln ran for re-election and realized he needed fresh blood to win the war. The slavery issue was after the war started, which was about states rights.

The agricultural industry was not based on it. Most people couldn't afford slaves and I don't mean buying them. I mean keeping them. Room and board as well as health care is expensive and unhealthy slaves are not productive. The majority weren't physically abused unlike what Hollywood claims. They were however emotionally abused and their families torn apart. A beaten slave can't work. It made no sense to do so unless they believed their was no other option. Besides that, as I said before, the vast majority of slaves did not work fields. You're free to do your own history homework on the subject. Your view of history is very juvenile and uninformed.

Nevermind the fact there are more slaves in the US today than there were when it was legal when you account for Mexican and Asian illegals. You could do with an education on what slavery actually is.

Is it that far off really?

Yes, there's a huge difference. In one scenario, if you try to leave your owner you are a fugitive of the law. In this scenario, you can always get another job..

Ever seen a non-compete clause in a contract? They are standard operating procedure now and companies will actively threaten you with them. So my point stands.

I don't think you have a very good grasp on what slavery is. You seem to have the Hollywood definition in your head when the reality is very different. Most slaves were indentured servants and still are. This is a temporary situation, usually remedied in time when the agreement is done. Historically in the middle east slaves were set free every 7 year cycle along with debt. Even in the US most slaves weren't working fields, most worked in households as maids and nannies. Many of which were paid for their work and had the opportunity to buy their freedom in time.

Now we're slaves to corporations who actively seek to ruin our careers and future prospects should we want to change "owners".

They may not be subjected to beatings but they are certainly subject to economic ruin if they try to change or improve their station. I've seen it happen. I've seen good engineers leave engineering altogether because they became untouchable simply because of who they once worked for.

Can you elaborate on this please?

My father worked for Cisco. Amazingly, every place he applied for while still there, would refuse to interview him, when only 5 years before he was one of the most sought after engineers in his field. Eventually he left Cisco and opened his own small business outside of Engineering because he simply couldn't even get interviewed anywhere. He nearly went broke trying.

I have two friends, one who worked for Google and another for Apple. Both left Engineering and went into the Accounting sector because they were untouchable by anyone.The only jobs they would get interviewed for were paying half what they used to make at small shops with virtually no health benefits.

In fact almost everyone I know that worked as an Engineer/software dev has now left the industry. In no small part because of this, coupled with a bit of age discrimination.

So a bunch of leftist execs screw people over and then you decide to jump over and become a leftist? Every single one of these execs is a major Democrat donor, whether its Marrissa Mayer or Eric Schmidt giving max contributions to Dem candidates, going so far as to actually host the parties at their homes or Steve Jobs being best buds with Bill Clinton and Al Gore. In fact every single one of these companies is directly hostile to Republican and Libertarian campaigns and causes.

Your leftists are the problem here with their crony capitalism and constant meddling in the free market. Republicans aren't innocent here but you're so bass akwards on this it's comical. You really think leftism is the solution to this? Sad.

For employees it is evil a sort of substitute for slaves and indentured servants.

Seriously folks. Let's not for a moment pretend that this is remotely similar to actual slavery. We're talking about two companies to collude to suppress wages for employees that by all objective standards are paid pretty well and have pretty good lives. Are you seriously going to claim that that is in any way comparable to being the property of another human being?

Yes this collusion is wrong. No it isn't even close to slavery. Claiming that the two are anything similar is unbelievably clueless.

Is it that far off really? Many engineers come out of school with 100k+ in debt. They go to work for one of these companies and can never leave because of secret agreements from the execs. Their wages are kept artificially low in a high cost of living area. Between rent/mortgage and other costs of living, they simply can't afford to drop the job and go elsewhere without having another job in the wings.

This isn't much different from indentured servitude. Only with indentured servants there is typically a contract up front, after X number of years you're free to move on. In Silicon Valley its all backroom deals, under the table and out of sight from the public. Your "owners" own you without you explicitly knowing it, there is no end date and there is serious direct career consequences if you try to change it.

They may not be subjected to beatings but they are certainly subject to economic ruin if they try to change or improve their station. I've seen it happen. I've seen good engineers leave engineering altogether because they became untouchable simply because of who they once worked for.
