ADF comment on decision of 11th Circuit in GA counselor case

How Appealing links to more coverage of the ruling.

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defense Fund Senior Counsel Byron Babione regarding the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit today in Walden v. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

“A counselor who is a Christian shouldn’t lose her job for upholding the highest professional standards. It is unlawful to punish a Christian for abiding by her faith, particularly when she made every effort to accommodate the interests of a potential client. We are disappointed that the court ruled against these fundamental principles, but we are determining next steps to ultimately vindicate Marcia and the freedoms for which she’s fighting.”
