    Thou Shalt Not Speak of Thy Religion

    From the Culture Desk...

    The PC Police have claimed another victim - this time at the hands of the Republican Governor of Maryland, Bob Ehrlich.

    This latest unfortunate episode was both unneccesary and disgraceful.

    Robert J. Smith, appointed by Governor Ehrlich to the governing board of the Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, recently appeared on a political talk show as a panelist. A regular on the show, his appearance had nothing to do with his official capacity on behalf of the board, but as a "Republican activist". During the course of the show, Mr. Smith voiced his opposition toward homosexuality referring to gays as "persons of sexual deviancy".

    Following the show, a homosexual member of the transit board asked him to apologize or recant his statements. He refused. The complaint then went to the governor and five hours later Smith was fired.

    The governor issued a statement about "tolerance" and a transit authority manager sent a memo to all 10,000 Metro employees about their nondiscrimination policy.

    A backlash has ensued from various religious organizations. Patrick Buchanan, whom we don't always agree with, has written an op-ed on the issue that's worth reading.

    Meanwhile, in a further attempt to move to the political "center", Ehrlich has just appointed an openly gay judge to the Baltimore Discrict Court.

    We are not sure of Governor Ehrlich's current religious leanings, but he was reportedly raised in a conservative Lutheran household. Whatever the case, he should be ashamed of his actions. A governor who has promoted faith-based initiatives in his administration should not then fire someone for voicing their own personal religious beliefs. What's more, he should not appease the homosexual lobby for the sake of political support. More than likely, he has not done himself a favor. Ehrlich is up for reelection this year.

    Give me a break! Even ESPN is getting pink! Please. You should be allowed to give your opinion. If you don't like it OK but to get fired and run out of town. This stinks!
