This incident follows form. Everything is fine until it comes to the attention of one of the eunuchs. According the to the complaint, Neal said she and the board members who make up the executive committee had met with Bishop Francis Xavier DiLorenzo the day prior to Murphy's dismissal. The bishop, the suit claims, “insisted that the executive committee terminate plaintiff on the grounds of same-sex marriage.”
Murphy filed a complaint with the EEOC in late 2015. Neither Virginia nor the City of Richmond have nondiscrimination laws protecting LGBT people from discrimination. This suit alleges a wrongful termination of employment.
