Judge corrects student who said she wouldn’t counsel gay people

After Jennifer Keeton told her instructors that she would tell LGBT people that they can be cured of their “identity confusion,” Augusta State University removed her from the school where she was studying to be a counselor. Post dismissal from the University – she sued, claiming administrators were discriminating against her religious beliefs. However, Common sense prevailed, and Judge Randal Hall disagreed. Now, a Georgia federal district court has sided with the school.

From the ruling: Keeton’s conflation of personal and professional values, or at least her difficulty in discerning the difference, appears to have been rooted in her opinion that the immorality of homosexual relations is a matter of objective and absolute moral truth.
