— Peter Vadala, a Massachusetts man who says he was fired from his job after he told a female colleague he thought her marriage to another woman was wrong.

  1. Has it never occurred to this guy that his work colleague’s marriage was none of his damn business to begin with? What sort of idiot would open his mouth and express the opinion that a colleague’s marriage was wrong? Was he equal opportunity? Did he wander around the building and tell people who were previously divorced that they were also wrong or sinful?
    Leaving aside the legal issues of why he was fired, the guy is clearly a bigoted, impertinent asshat.
