A theater arts department professor, Linda Ozmun, at Lamar University in Beaumont, TX had no problem doing her job. She was teaching kids about theater arts. That was her job and she was doing it just fine. The school wanted more than that though. According to a lawsuit that the terminated professor filed, the school chairwoman Judith Sebesta, and eventually the Dean, told her that she had to attend a vulgar gay pride play, by Tim Miller, or else she would be terminated. The professor is a Christian who did not want to go to a vulgar gay pride play. It was not part of her job and she would not be working at the gay play. The school just wanted her to personally go see the play. This gay play had been planned once before at the college but it was cancelled after the community complained that it would be too offensive and vulgar. The play was brought back though and the professor requested a reasonable accommodation to be excused from attending this offensive production. The dean of her college refused this simple accommodation and threatened plaintiff with disciplinary action if she failed to attend the performance. Because of her religious beliefs, plaintiff failed to attend the performance and as a result she was disciplined for her religious beliefs. Lamar University has discriminated against this professor on the basis of her religious beliefs in violation of the Texas anti-discrimination laws.
As Americans, we should tolerate other lifestyles. If someone wants to be gay then that is up to them and we cannot force them not to be gay. on the other hand, Americans should never be forced to accept an alternate lifestyle as normal or be forced to go to a gay play in violation of that person's Christian beliefs. That is the homosexual agenda though. They claim they just want to be tolerated but in reality, they will not be happy until they have forced Americans to accept their lifestyle as normal and right. They will not be happy until they force Christian organizations to provide health coverage that includes sex changes. They will not be happy until they have indoctrinated out children that they are bad if they do not agree with homosexuality, like this Fort Worth, TX kids who got suspended for simply BELIEVING that homosexuality is wrong. They will not be happy until they have forced states to recognize their relationships as a marriage even though the people have voted that marriage is only between a man and a woman.
