Court rules student counselors must 'affirm' gay clients

There are 3 comments on the www.usatoday.com story from Jul 29, 2010, titled Court rules student counselors must 'affirm' gay clients. In it, www.usatoday.com reports that:

On July 27th, a federal judge upheld the right of a counseling program at Eastern Michigan University to kick out a master's student who declined to counsel gay clients in an affirming way — as required by the university program and counseling associations. The judge found that the university was enforcing a legitimate curricular requirement — namely that counseling students learn to work with all kinds of clients in ways that did not judge their values or orientations.
