Cargill claims to value diversity, but proves otherwise

As we all know (well, "we" meaning those of us on the right) "tolerance" and "diversity" are one-way streets in this day and age. We conservatives are expected to be tolerant of other people's opinions, beliefs and lifestyles, yet they are not expected to be tolerant of our's. In fact, intolerance of conservatives' opinions, beliefs and lifestyles is widespread.

Case in point, Cargill's recent firing of Luis Padilla in Virginia. His crime? Supporting traditional marriage. He simply painted the message "Please, vote for marriage on Nov. 7" on his truck's back window. Nothing near what Fred Phelps and his ilk are known for. Still, "tolerant" people complained that it offended them and Padilla was asked to remove the message. He [rightfully] refused and was fired.

Now I have to ask how many of Cargill's employees have messages or stickers on their vehicles that some could find offensive? How about pro-gay rainbow stickers? Do you think that if someone had complained that those were offensive the company would've asked the owners to remove them? I seriously doubt it!

Here's Cargill's Statement on Diversity, which is obviously as worthless as the amount of electricity it takes to load the page. What they mean by "diversity" is the same as what anyone else means these days: "tolerance of everything but conservative values."
