Christian Counselor Fired for Denying Advice

Ad Feedback

The battle for gay rights may have cost one Christian counselor her job.

Marcia Walden used to work as a workplace counselor for the Centers for Disease Control.

She says she was fired after referring a lesbian worker at the CDC to another counselor. The woman wanted relationship advice.

The Alliance Defense Fund is suing on Walden's behalf.  Click the play button for more from ADF attorney Jordan Lawrence.

Walden told her she had religious convictions against same-sex relationships, and pointed her to a different counselor who could help.

But the Christian worker was accused of "homophobia," and eventually fired.

Both the CDC and the private company that had been outsourced to provide the counselors would not comment to CBN News because because of pending litigation.
