Georgia Grad Student Sues University Over Gay Sensitivity TrainingHmm, David French, where have I heard that name before? Oh wait, I remember:
Jennifer Keeton Says She Was Told to Change Her Christian Beliefs or Be Dropped From the Program
David French, senior counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund and also director of its Center for Academic Freedom, told ABCNews.com that the lawsuit on Keeton's behalf is one of about a half-dozen similiar cases involving counseling or social work students in the last few years.
Eastern Michigan U. student's lawsuit is dismissedOh where to start ... I'll start here: Jennifer Keeton wasn't told to change her beliefs, she was just told she'd have to attend sensitivity classes. And if she didn't attend them she couldn't complete her studies.
Julea Ward says she was removed from Eastern's counseling program because she refused to counsel gay clients, saying she believed homosexuality was morally wrong.
Alliance Defense Fund attorney David French says the group will appeal the decision.
That sounds reasonable to me. They didn't ask for her to change her beliefs, they just asked her to attend more classes.
Julea Ward also failed in her attempt to get a degree so she could impose her religious beliefs on the public.
That also sounds reasonable to me.
Look, if you're going for a geology degree, and you think the Earth is 6000 years old, you flunk. Because you can't do your job.
If you're a pharmacist and you refuse to sell condoms, or any other legal BC, you flunk. Because you can't do your job.
Frankly, if your religious views make it impossible to do your job? Find another job.
By bringing their doxastic errors into secular professions they are imposing their religion on others. The 1st Amendment doesn't work that way.
