Plaintiff, a Christian, has voiced her religious-
based, personal views on sexual morality—particularly, themorality of homosexual conduct—in classroom discussions, inschool papers
in conversations with her professors, and
outside the classroom with fellow students; she has also
encouraged fellow students to adopt her views. As the
counseling program faculty stated, "Plaintiff has voiceddisagreement in several class discussions and in written
assignments with the gay and lesbian 'lifestyle.'" (Compl.
Ex. B at 3.) Plaintiff has stated that she condemns
homosexuality based upon the Bible's teachings. Moreover,Plaintiff has stated that she believes sexual behavior is
the result of accountable personal choice rather than an
inevitability deriving from deterministic forces. (Compi. ¶16.) Plaintiff also has affirmed binary male-female gender,
with one or the other being fixed in each person at theircreation, and not a social construct or individual choice
subject to alteration by the person so created. (Id.)
Finally, Plaintiff has expressed her view that
homosexuality is a "lifestyle," not a "state of being."
Specifically, in a school paper assignment, Plaintiff wrote that
"it would be hard [for her] to work with [the gay, lesbian, bisexual,transgender, and queer/ questioning] population." (Resp. Ex. F at 3.)
Plaintiff also stated in her paper that "[i]t will be beneficial for
[her] to work in a school that aligns with [her] values and beliefs."
(Id. at 3-4.)
