Religious Intolerance & Blasphemy laws Pt. 10 – Pro-family Views Cost a Man his Job
Intolerance for Christian values can clearly been seen in the case of, superintendent, Dr. Edmond Heatley, who’s pro-family views cost him his job.
BERKELEY, September 19, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – A former Marine’s views about the sanctity of marriage have cost him a job as superintendent of schools in Berkeley, California.
Dr. Edmond Heatley, who is African-American, had already been selected as the final candidate and resigned his position as a superintendent in Georgia when news broke that in 2008 he supported Proposition 8, a pro-marriage state ballot initiative adopted by California voters that November.
“The Berkeley School Board is engaging in blatant viewpoint discrimination by declining to hire an otherwise well-qualified candidate for School Superintendent, just because he supported Prop 8,” Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, the founder of The Ruth Institute, wrote in a statement e-mailed to LifeSiteNews.com.
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation,
19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God.
