Free speech being destroyed by gender Nazis wearing black robes as court rules AGAINST professor who refused to address student with trans pronouns
2-22-20, (Natural News) In a country founded on the principle that everyone has a voice and that speech isn’t something that can or should be regulated, the First Amendment is increasingly coming under attack by activist judges who shun the law of the land in deference to the law of political correctness that now apparently trumps US Constitution.
Now, not hurting someone’s feelings more important than First Amendment
As reported by The New American, Ohio Judge Susan Dlott has ruled that Christian Prof. Nicholas Meriwether can be fired by his employer, Shawnee State University [SSU], over his failure to use homosexual aka "trans" pronouns, as per the school’s ‘nondiscrimination policy.’
The Fourteenth Amendment is being utilized to override the First Amendment’s protection of speech and religious freedom.
Prof. Meriwether filed suit against SSU after its administrators sided with a student who got hostile with the him after he refused to refer to the student by his preferred pronouns. According to the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), which represents Meriwether and filed the suit on his behalf, the student — Alena Bruening, referred to only as “Doe,” “became belligerent, circling around him, getting in his face in a threatening fashion, while telling him, ‘Then I guess this means I can call you a c**t.’” School administration sided with the Bruening after he/she?? filed a formal complaint over the incident in which he actually accused Meriwether of creating a “hostile” environment, in violation of school policy. The complaint led SSU officials to issue the professor a warning in June 2018.
ADF stated in the lawsuit that the school’s actions violated Prof Meriwether's First Amendment rights, but that charge was dismissed by the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of Ohio. His primary complaint is that by forcing him to refer to a student’s self-identified gender, that “would require him to violate his conscience and sincerely held religious beliefs” — principles that no longer matter to an increasing number of federal judges.
The New American noted: He charged that his rights were violated because he was threatened and punished “for refusing to communicate a University-mandated ideological message regarding gender identity both in and out of the classroom” and that he was compelled to communicate in regard to gender identity in a way that conflicts with his religious beliefs.
However, U.S. District Judge Susan Dlott, a Clinton appointee ruled: “Plaintiff’s refusal to address a student in class in accordance with the student’s gender identity does not implicate broader societal concerns and the free speech clause of the First Amendment under the circumstances of this case.” The court further claimed that all Meriwether had to do was to simply remove any and all references to pronouns in his classroom, and that doing so would not have been an infringement on his speech rights.
Prof Meriwether explained that his practice is to refer to students using proper etiquette prefixes “Mr.” and “Ms.” followed by their surnames and that in order to accommodate this student he offered to refer to him just using his last name. But that wasn’t good enough; Judge Dlott said that still amounted to discrimination because Meriwether didn’t then call all students simply by their last names.
Yes, it’s come to this: Left-wing activist judges picking gnat droppings out of salt in order to justify their attacks on Christianity and traditional American culture.
