State of Georgia reaches settlement with doctor fired for his sermons

Dr. Eric Walsh, the physician hired by the state of Georgia as a director for its Department of Public Health but then fired over his Christian views, has reached a $225,000 settlement with the state. He filed a lawsuit after his dismissal and during the process of that lawsuit, the state asked for all copies of every sermon he ever gave during their discovery phase. He refused the request.dr eric walsh used via Flickr Creative Commons

The state agreed to pay the lay minister who serves the Seventh Day Adventist Church to settle the religious discrimination suit on February 7 with the First Liberty Institute legally representing Walsh. The Senior Counsel for the Institute considers the settlement as a victory for religious freedom.

  1. Yes indeed. Here in Canada it has also has happened that when secular persecutors of Christians or Christian institutions seeking to obey God end up in court where they have to provide actual evidence, they invariably get their clocks cleaned, lol
