Michigan university sued over discipline against grad student for views on homosexuality
When Julea Ward, a graduate student in the educational counseling program at Eastern Michigan University, was asked to counsel a client wishing to discuss a homosexual relationship, she objected and referred the client to another counselor. The EMU program adheres to the standards of the American Counseling Association, which require counselors to not engage in discrimination based on, among other things, sexual orientation. EMU disciplined Ward. Now the religious-activist group Alliance Defense Fund has now filed suit on her behalf against the university, claiming religious discrimination. A story from the Ann Arbor News is here. The full text of the federal court complaint is here.
