Distributing Christian Literature in a University is Considered Harassment

Janis Price held a teaching position at DePauw University of Indiana. Price was charged with harassment. The university proceeded to cut her pay, demoted her, suspended her from teaching duties and put her on probation. What was her act of harassment - passing out Christian literature in class. DePauw's "anti-harassment" policies recognize Christian literature as "anti-gay" harassment.

A jury verdict awarded Price $10,000 in lost wages, but a panel of three federal appellate judges upheld the university's right to discriminate against Christians, overturning the jury verdict. Oh yes, the federal judges should not have ruled the case due to serious conflict of interest - but that didn't stop them.
