Often there are multiple reasons a person is fired from a job, but that this issue is included is a sad comment on the lack of tolerance for opposing views, especially when those views happen to match the facts.
"What seemed to be the last straw for my column was my insistence that there are only two sexes and my frustration that to be inclusive of the transgendered (even that word isn’t allowed) we must lose our right to free speech."
"Caldara criticized an Associated Press directive saying that sex and gender are not binary. 'There are only two sexes, identified by an XX or XY chromosome. That is the very definition of binary. The AP ruling it isn’t so doesn’t change science. It’s a premeditative attempt to change culture and policy. It’s activism.'"
"In an email to the Washington Free Beacon, Schrader confirmed that she fired Caldara but declined to discuss the reason. 'I am writing a job description as we speak to fill his position,' she said. 'I hope that conservative Colorado writers will apply knowing that we value conservative voices on our pages and don't have a litmus test for their opinions.'"
"But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these" (II Timothy 3:1-5).
