Discrimination against Christians is quite the acceptable position in America these days.

"Freedom of Religion" has grown into "Freedom FROM Religion" as long as it is Christianity that is the religion we are to be freed from.

Scientist alleges religious discrimination in Ky.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – An astronomer argues that his Christian faith and his peers' belief that he is an evolution skeptic kept him from getting a prestigious job as the director of a new student observatory at the University of Kentucky.

Martin Gaskell quickly rose to the top of a list of applicants being considered by the university's search committee. One member said he was "breathtakingly above the other applicants." Others openly worried his Christian faith could conflict with his duties as a scientist, calling him "something close to a creationist" and "potentially evangelical."
...
Gaskell later learned that professors had discussed his purported religious views during the search process.... University scientists wondered to each other in internal e-mails if Gaskell's faith would interfere with the job, which included public outreach, according to court records.... "We might as well have the Creation Museum set up an outreach office in biology," biology professor James Krupa wrote to a colleague in an October 2007 e-mail. The museum was making national headlines at the time for exhibits that assert the literal truth of the Bible's creation story.
...
Gaskell was uniquely qualified for the new position at the University of Kentucky, according to court records, because he oversaw the design and construction of an observatory at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He also advised UK during the building of the MacAdam facility. He currently teaches at the University of Texas....

Christians are a great embarrassment to our society you know... esp. the brand of Christian that holds to the sacred scriptures as worthy of serious contemplation for fruitful living.
