Companies pledge not to discriminate against same-sex marriage opponents

Catholic World News - November 21, 2011

Following cancellations of seminars offered by a consultant who, outside of his professional duties, vocally opposes same-sex marriage, Bank of America and Cisco have pledged that they will not discriminate against supporters of traditional marriage.

Frank Turek heads the Austin Group, which offers “high-impact, inspirational training in leadership, sales, teambuilding, and more.” He is also the author of Correct, Not Politically Correct: How Same-Sex Marriage Hurts Everyone

In response to a query from the National Organization for Marriage, a Cisco executive stated that it is not “acceptable to discriminate against vendors such as Frank Turek or employees who, outside the work context, have taken a position supporting marriage as the union of one man and one woman.”

“We have taken the appropriate measures within our organization to address this matter,” added a Bank of America executive. “Dr. Turek remains a vendor in good standing with us.”

    I find it very disturbing that such pledges are necessary.
