The first amendment doesn't protect you from being fired. It protects us and Rob Parker from being thrown in jail and tortured for our speech.

Employers can basically do what they want, to whomever, in regards to hiring and firing...as long as they don't blatantly say it's because of their gender, race, sexuality, etc.
