A Georgia graduate student who has sued Augusta State University in a battle over graduate program requirements and her stated anti-gay “Christian beliefs,” has petitioned the U. S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals to prevent the university from expelling her.
Jennifer Keeton, 24, who is pursuing a master’s degree in counseling, said she was ordered to undergo a re-education plan that requires her to attend “diversity sensitivity training” when the school told her that her anti-gay beliefs are incompatible with the standards of her desired profession.
Keeton had said in and out class that, according to her Christian beliefs, homosexuality is immoral and a lifestyle choice.
Keeton is represented by the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Alliance Defense Fund Center for Academic Freedom, which contends that “A public university student shouldn’t be threatened with expulsion for being a Christian and refusing to publicly renounce her faith.”
