Lord Have Mercy, Pastor Alleges He Lost Job Over Conservative Religious Beliefs.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting, Dr. Eric Wash a Seventh Day Adventist Preacher, is saying the Public Health, Department of Georgia has rescinded a job offer once it learned of his religious beliefs. According to Walsh, the health department offered him a job as a director of a North Georgia region, sending him a welcoming letter and all, then took the offer back. All because of recorded sermons online in which he said homosexuality is a sin and evolution is a “religion created by Satan.” Walsh has now filed a complaint Tuesday with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in Atlanta.
In this day and age, keeping extremist views to yourself is best. Employers can easily use social media forums and platforms to determine the character of a job candidate. From my understanding, the position that he would have served in demands that it should be someone who could make decisions that could be acceptable to a wide range of the public.
