WND-20-YearsKodak fires man over anti-‘gay’ stance

Oct. 24, 2002: WND reported how a 23-year veteran of the Eastman Kodak Co. was fired after objecting to a pro-homosexual memo from the film giant.

“Please do not send this type of information to me anymore, as I find it disgusting and offensive,” said Rolf Szabo.

Kodak responded with its own memo, stating: “Rolf’s comments are hurtful to our employees, friends and family members who are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered. This behavior is not aligned with the Kodak Values and, therefore, is not acceptable.”

A spokesman for Kodak told WND: “Every possible definition of diversity is embraced by Kodak. This is a company that does not take these matters lightly.”
