Forced participation in gay rights parade

According to the Thomas Moore Law Center:

In July 2007, the four San Diego firefighters were ordered, against their wishes, to participate in uniform on their city fire engine in San Diego’s annual “Gay Pride” parade. During the course of the ensuing three hour long ordeal, the firefighters were subjected to vile sexual taunts and gestures along the parade route. These firemen are devoted husbands and fathers. All four firemen are Christian men.

Yesterday, shortly before 4:30 p.m. P.S.T., the jury found in favor of the four courageous Christian firefighters on all nine questions in the verdict form.
Now, can these men turn around and file lawsuits against the city for trampling their freedom of religion, violating their civil rights, and for subjecting them to sexual harassment? Cities need to understand that this kind of fascism will not be tolerated.
