School Worker in Maine Warned Not to Share Faith

Augusta (Maine) School Department worker Toni Richardson was reprimanded for privately telling a coworker who goes to her church that she would pray for him while they were on school property. She was ordered not to make any “reference to [her] spiritual or religious beliefs” and that doing so could lead to disciplinary action or even job loss.

Richardson, through First Liberty Institute, has filed a formal complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission based on religious discrimination and retaliation.

California Prof Tries to Erase Pro-Life Messages

Fresno State University professor Gregory Thatcher is being sued by Students for Life for free speech violations for attempting to erase the group’s chalk pro-life sidewalk messages and encouraging pro-abortion students to assist him. Although Students for Life had permission from the university to create the messages, Thatcher claimed, “College campuses are not free-speech areas.”

N.J. Teacher Who Gave Bible to Student Gets Job Back

Awhile back we reported that New Jersey substitute teacher Walt Tutka was dismissed from his job for giving a Bible to a student who had asked him for one. Thankfully, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission determined that Tutka’s action was consistent with school policies and federal law pertaining to religious freedom and the school district agreed to reinstate him.

Liberals Won’t Take Their Hands off Hands On Originals

Back in 2012, the Lexington Human Rights Commission ruled that Blaine Adamson of Hands on Originals violated the city’s fairness ordinance for not printing T-shirts with a gay pride message. Adamson appealed the commission’s ruling to a judge who reversed the ruling. Then the commission appealed to the Kentucky Court of Appeals, which last Friday affirmed the trial judge’s reversal of the ruling.

Apparently, losing twice isn’t enough; the commission has asked the state Supreme Court to review the decision. Let’s hope the Supreme Court decides to leave Adamson alone!

Snowflakes Will Not Be Tolerated, Says This Campus President

Oklahoma Wesleyan University President Everett Piper continues his fight against campus snowflakes. In 2015 Piper wrote an open letter to students saying that college was not a day care. Then last month, in an op-ed for the Christian Post, he once again stood up to campus snowflakes after UC Berkeley canceled Ann Coulter’s campus speaking engagement.

Piper said, “The classical liberal is someone who stands for freedom, for liberty and for liberation. What we see today within the American academy is the shutting down of ideas. We see ideological fascism rather than academic freedom.”

We couldn’t agree with him more.
