Metalworker Fired For Opposing Company’s Gay Pride Symbol

Daniel Snyder was fired from his job as a metalworker because he objected to his employer’s use of a rainbow to promote gay pride month.

Snyder, who worked for the global aluminum manufacturing giant Arconic, is suing his former employer claiming religious discrimination. As I wrote in my new book, “Twilight’s Last Gleaming,” religious liberty is under fierce attack in the nation. Click here to read my book.

“Because of his Christian beliefs, Mr. Snyder respects all people regardless of their sexuality, and he previously worked alongside a transgender individual at Arconic without any issues,” said Thomas More Society attorney Michael McHale. “His sincerely held Christian beliefs also include the reasonable understanding that the Bible teaches marriage is only between one man and one woman.”

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit is expected to hear Snyder’s appeal on Tuesday.

“He also sincerely believes that the Bible shows that the rainbow is a sign of the covenant between God and man, and thus that it is sacrilegious to use the rainbow to promote relationships and ideologies that violate God’s law,” the attorney said.

Arconic notified Snyder that his comment offended a fellow employee, and the 62-year-old worker was then suspended and terminated, allegedly for violating the company’s “Diversity Policy.” 

“The Biden Administration is seeking to enshrine in federal law that big companies’ ‘diversity, equity, and inclusion’ (DEI) policies trump the religious liberty rights of individual American workers,” said Thomas More attorney Peter Breen. “Massive companies like Arconic are using their DEI policies to threaten people of faith merely because they express their sincere religious beliefs—here, the Biden Administration has come into court to defend religious discrimination committed by a large powerful company against a single Christian union worker.”

As I wrote in “Twilight’s Last Gleaming,” many companies are using DEI policies to discriminate specifically against Christians.

“Ironically, Arconic is the one refusing to respect the diversity of Mr. Snyder’s beliefs or to acknowledge that he was offended by the company’s choice to co-opt the rainbow to promote ideologies that conflict with the Biblical understanding of marriage and sexuality,” McHale said. “And Arconic’s outright refusal to acknowledge that he was just trying to answer a company survey, rather than impose his views on others, was illegal.”
