We constantly hear about brave protesters who stand up to authority who in reality risk nothing by doing so.
Harmony Daws is not such a person:
Daws informed her boss at Sparkling Palaces, a local cleaning business in Portland, that she had recently been named president of Oregon Right To Life. Afterwards, her boss became “cold and distant” for the next week and a half, ORTL said in a statement. She ultimately fired Daws, saying that being pro-life caused Daws to discriminate against other employees.
As an employee who herself hired and fired people for the company, Daws says she never made hiring or firing decisions based on an employee’s abortion beliefs.
“Cleaning is the most neutral thing there is,” Daws said. “You can do it with anybody for anybody.”
But there is nothing in the world less tolerant than a tolerant liberal.
But being fired is not what makes Daws a hero, it was her reaction to it which was in part.
had I known then what the price to accept the presidency would be, I would still have accepted the position. Fighty-eight million children have lost their lives since 1973. Losing a job in my stand for their right to life was a small price to pay.
She plans to go into business for herself. If I might be so bold as to suggest if I was Donald Trump I’d stake her as it would burnish his pro-life credentials, but perhaps he is worried that some in his base might not be happy with such a move.
If I was Ted Cruz I would immediate start mentioning her on every speech on religious freedom I give.
Closing thought, Imagine if she instead was voted head of Oregon LGBT & her christian boss fired her, would there be any other story in media this weekend?
