Google pays gays extra, Ireland passes civil partnerships bill, AIDS crisis looms again because of recession

2 07 2010

What a great idea!! Internet giant Google will pay their gay employees extra to compensate for a  tax required when receiving domestic partnership health insurance. Something straight couples do not have to do. After a gay guy complained about the fact they had to pay over 1000 dollars extra ,Google Human Resources looked into it and thought it was only fair to give gays some extras.

The Dail(lower legislative chamber) in Ireland yesterday passed a civil partnerships bill. It passed all stages without a vote and now goes to the Irish version of the Senate. Next step might be marriage but this is already great news. There were only a few protesters with the same old complaints saying gay sex is sodomy.

A new AIDS crisis might be looming again in the U.S. Reason is that the people who depend on the government assistance to get their meds, do not get that anymore because of the budget cuts. Without the assistance people have to pay the 12.000 a year themselves and many can’t. Results will be HIV that becomes full-blown AIDS ,more infections and extensive hospital stays for patients. Not good.

IBM has worked on diversity for over 100 years, being the first to hire women and people of color. World-wide they have 400.000 employees. Keep it going!!

Archdiocese of Boston’s Pilot newspaper columnist Michael Pakuluk does not want his 6-year-old son to be in the same class as a gay couple’s kid because there is a real danger that kid would bring (or refer )to something obscene or pornographic to school as that goes along with the gay lifestyle. Is he for real?? How insulting to gay parents.

An elderly couple in British Columbia, Canada has decided to close their Bed&Breakfast rather than face additional charges of discriminating against gay customers. They say they have been harassed so bad just for “being themselves. The couple denied a gay couple staying with them because that was against their religious beliefs. According to their lawyer they are a lovely couple that do not want to be seen as discriminating, but they are christians staying true to their beliefs. Nasty bitter old bigots, is more like it.
