Instead of expelling her, they should give her a failing grade to represent her failure as a counselor and as a human being.

She didn't win her case, counseling students at EMU are still required to abide by ACA guidelines when dealing with LGBT clients, regardless of their religious beliefs to the contrary. This was a nuisance settlement, nothing more.

Pay the bitch off and be done with her. She will have this lawsuit stain with her for the rest of her career. Private practice and Nutbag Religious schools will be her only options for employment.$75,000 was cheap!

Did Jesus ever say anything about law suits? Perhaps ADF should consult their Bible before filing any more cases.

The school caved in. Here is the pertinent fact of the case:

She did not complete the required course work!

How did she expect to earn her advanced degree without completing all the steps to get that degree? The school was justified removing her from the program!!

Right to work laws, winning lawsuits for not caving in to the gay righst crowd. Why Michigan seems to finally be waking up and coming to its senses after being trashed by liberals.
Its a new day

The school didn't cave, they merely paid off the nuisance. Other than the cash payout, which may just about cover the cost of the education she just flocked, she "won" nothing. She won't be readmitted to the program and her kind of discrimination still won't be allowed.

She deserves way more than 75K. Just think if she was a dyke who claimed she was bullied or discriminated against, the school would be forced to pay her millions.

Your post sounds like mommy and daddy should do a better job of monitoring your internet habits. If you really aren't an immature, intellectually challenged 12 year old, it's usually better if you don't act like one, buttercup.

Somewhere I can English teacher quietly sobbing. BooBoo, you should have just quietly went away when you had the opportunity. I never saw this as a battle of wits, because I knew before I replied that you were pretty freaking witless. I just like pointing and laughing at idiots making fools of themselves.

The very best thing you can do for young people is to STAY FAR AWAY. Haven't the parents in your wind blown Kansas trailer park made that plain enough by now?
Your a joke David...you of all people, I would think wouldn't post such hateful remarks. Not very Christian of you. Now go pray to that big cross in your back yard, hypocrite.
