Firefighters ordered to ride in gay pride parade

The LA Times reports:
SAN DIEGO -- A six-man, six-woman jury is set to begin deliberations Wednesday in a lawsuit brought by four San Diego firefighters who allege they were subjected to sexual harassment when they were ordered to participate in the 2007 gay pride parade.

In closing arguments Tuesday, the firefighters' attorney asked the jury to order the city to pay each firefighter $500,000 to $1 million for the damage they suffered from being taunted by spectators.
This is where we are headed in California -- people being forced to support homosexual causes. This story is reason enough to vote against same-sex marriage.

Update: The trial ended in a hung jury. Another trial is scheduled for January.
