Now this one I understand the company’s position: a little. The Christian employee should not have posted his position on company media.
But termination?! A Suspension Without Pay and final warning should he repeat the behavior just wouldn’t do?
They just had to have their pound of flesh? Over the diversity policy because a gay employee got offended? Really?

And in general I’m opposed to companies firing people for things they’ve written online (unless it was part of their employment agreement). But even if it was an accident, he made his opinion known to the company which, if he interacts with other employees, could create a hostile work environment. And of course if you are in a at-will state, that’s just a gamble you take. If you’re gonna bigot, then you have to be more mindful of where you are doing it.
