Many people have seen the story out of Dearborn:
"A former high school wrestling coach who is Christian filed a lawsuit Monday against Dearborn Public Schools and a high school principal who is Muslim, saying he was terminated because of his association with an assistant who had helped convert a Muslim student to Christianity.
The suit was filed in Detroit by a Livonia law firm and attorneys with the Thomas More Law Center in Ann Arbor.
Jerry Marszalek, a longtime wrestling coach at Fordson High School in Dearborn, was let go last year by the district, which did not renew his contract.
The lawsuit says that the district and Imad Fadlallah, principal at Fordson High School, violated constitutional rights to free speech and exercise of religion, and Michigan laws against discrimination."
What is interesting is, if the facts were reversed, the attorneys would not take the case. The Thomas More Center only takes cases of religious discrimination against Christians. So, if the coach were Muslim at a Christian school the center would have no part in the case. That’s an odd result to me.:rolleyes:
My question for the forum is if the restriction of fighting for the religious liberty only of Christians means the Thomas More Law Center is not interested in the religious liberty of all, just some. Just think if an organization only got involved in the free speech rights of, for instance, Puerto Ricans. You know what folks would say!
The ACLU, on the other hand, is non-partisan. While the Thomas More center was representing those protesters at Notre Dame, the ACLU represented the Bridgeport diocese against state interference. It all makes one wonder.
