KLOUDA SUES THE SEMINARY

I had a discussion this week with a professor at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary about the firing of Dr. Klouda. Ironically, one point of our discussion was whether she would be willing to make her personnel file public.

I win.

Klouda filed suit against SWBTS this week and her file will certainly be made public in the suit.

I don't see anyway she can make a sex discrimination suit stick against a religious school, as the courts generally hold that, if the decision is on religious grounds, the court will not intervene. Notre Dame won a case on these same grounds after demoting a female chaplain.

Nonetheless, it should prove interesting.
