WENHAM, Mass. — A professor at a Christian college in Massachusetts has filed a lawsuit alleging she was denied a promotion for speaking out against the school’s LGBTQ polices.
The Salem News (http://bit.ly/2x6HzBs ) reports that Gordon College associate professor Margaret DeWeese-Boyd filed a discrimination complaint in Essex Superior Court on Wednesday. DeWeese-Boyd is seeking damages and an injunction ordering the college to end discrimination and retaliation.
She alleges college President Michael Lindsay and Provost Janel Curry discriminated against her because she opposed the school’s policy against “homosexual practice.” DeWeese-Boyd also says she has faced harsher penalties compared to male colleagues who have vocally opposed the school.
A Gordon spokesman said DeWeese-Boyd’s accusations are “baseless”.
Another Gordon professor agreed to settle with the college and resigned after filing a civil rights suit last year.
