A Gallaudet University official suspended last year after she exercised free speech at church filed a lawsuit against the school.
Angela McCaskill was placed on administrative leave after she affirmed marriage after signing a petition for a referendum on Maryland’s law that redefined it. The suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, says the school violated anti-discrimination provisions of the D.C. Human Rights Act.
Supporters of keeping marriage defined as it always has been – one man and one woman – are being threatened in state after state. Opponents are seeking to silence their voice from the public square. We must continue to fight for our freedom of speech on this issue and others.
Currently in our own state legislature, there is legislation to write discrimination into our anti-discrimination laws. By adding “sexual orientation” and “gender identity or expression” to these laws, Christians like Angela McCaskill could be punished for their views on marriage.
