Anti-gay Proselytizing Nurse Loses Discrimination Claim

"Always the victim" doesn't always work!

According to U.S. District Judge Hugh Lawson in Valdosta, Ga, a Georgia hospital did not discriminate against a supervisor it demoted for allegedly badgering a gay nurse, telling the woman that she lived "in sin," a federal judge ruled.

Judge Lawson said that he disagreed with Pamela Hall's claim that the Tift County Hospital Authority and two directors "punished her for following a brand of Christianity they found unacceptable."

Hall sued the Tift Regional Medical Center operator and two directors in 2012, claiming she was demoted after distributing Christian-themed materials and emails to the gay nurse.

Judge Lawson also ruled against Hall's free speech and religious freedom claims, granting the hospital summary judgment on all claims.
