So let me see if I have this straight; unless a company supports homosexual relationships they are bad? I have a right to not be a homosexual, or to even associate with them, just as much as they have to choose to be that way. I am not their judge, but neither are they mine. I also don't support child molesters, incest, pornography, teens drinking and doing drugs, etc., but I know they happen. Those involved feel they have a "right" to their choices. Just why the liberal press continues to support homosexual "rights" is a mystery to me.

Worse yet,the company was set up.

If I was seeking an employee to fill a certain need and I saw that they were an activist with groups that are often loud and vocal I would avoid hiring them. Why should an employer have to risk embarrassment or worse yet activist behavior from within just to appease some group?

What is so wrong with preferring a quiet, qualified employee over a loud and equally qualified employee?

Why would even you put that on a job application? I can't think of anything regarding a position for an oil company where that would have any relevance unless you the candidate are screening potential employers. In which case you would probably go work for someone else if your values don't align and you see that as a problem. If I were hiring someone I would never ask them if they were gay because I don't really need or want to know. I would be looking for someone devoted to the job- not pushing an agenda for some other cause.
