Federal worker says he’d rather be fired than watch diversity video


A Social Security Administration employee is refusing to watch a workplace training video about tolerance for the LGBT community because he says it violates his Christian faith — and he’s willing to lose his job of 14 years over the matter.

David Hall, 42, of Tolono, Ill., who works in information technology for the federal agency’s Champaign office, spoke to local media last week about his refusal to watch the 17-minute diversity training video and his belief that homosexuality is a sin.

The federal worker’s story started to gain traction after he spoke to the News-Gazette and WCIA-TV about how he was reprimanded and suspended for two days without pay.
