Grad Student's Counseling Case

Graduate student Jennifer Keeton is suing Georgia's Augusta State University for "punishing" her over her Christian views on gay rights, according to her attorney. Her case is now before an appeals court after a judge rejected her claim. Attorneys for both sides offered arguments to the appeals court today. Keeton's attorney told the judges she is "committed to the truth of the Bible." Keeton was placed on academic probation for saying it would be difficult for her to work with gay clients and claims she was threatened with expulsion if she did not go to events like the city's gay pride parade.
