social network for conservatives
Well, we have two possible things going on. 1. You can't hire people discriminating on political party affiliation.
and 2. Alot of nonprofits get a little sketchy over political things, because theyre not supposed to be partial to either party, etc. with their tax status, etc.
However, since they were putting TVs on for everybody to watch Obama and they have a display case devoted to him, Im assuming theyre not concerned about number 2. If it were *ME*... I would hang up a BIG BIG picture of Ronald Reagan in my office. And thats all I would do.
I try to be tolerant. In fact, I would welcome all political discussion about Obama and talk to them in a friendly nonconfrontational manner.. Right now everybodys all hopped up on the first black president, Bush is out, etc... but the issues havent really changed, and im sure over time we're going to see not too many changes by Obama's administration. Thats when all the talk youve conversed about will sink into them and the lightbulb may go off in their mind.
You still have your elephant? I'd get it out, but be willing to take the jibes about it. I agree with Mikey, a Reagan pix would be a nice touch. :-) But being non-profit, they could be in danger of losing their status if they start anything too big in the way of discrimination. And this is church backed...how nice...I work for a church too, luckily very conservative, but we don't discuss politics and neither should they. I think I might have a heart to heart with the ED (but I suppose he/she is a lib) if you are on good terms. If not, you know where you stand and it might be time to move on. But the economy has you there, thanks to the libs! they'll all find out soon enough! church orgs should know better. it's easy to lose status, especially if a suit would come up....
I fought it though and they eventually had to stop wearing them.
