22-year-old Ruthie Robertson, Professor of political science at Brigham young University, lost his job after the June 5, published in the social network Facebook post in support of the LGBT community. She praised the event Pride Month, and protested against the tough stance against gays sect «the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints» which member is she.
About it writes on Wednesday, July 19, the newspaper the Washington Post.
Note that the Brigham young University located in Provo, Utah – a private institution that was founded founded by the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints in 1875 , one of the largest religious universities in the United States.
The article says that this post was visible only to friends Ruthie – none of her students could not read the text. But information about it reached the leadership of the University, then a young teacher called «on the carpet» and demanded to immediately remove the post. She refused, and her contract was not renewed.
In an interview with KUTV Robertson stated that it did not intend to sacrifice his convictions for the sake of the workplace and will continue to support their gay friends, to which she belongs.
«I don’t agree with the statement «love the sinner and hate the sin», because this «sin» is part of his nature. Homosexuality is not a sin if God created us then he created gays» – it explains their position.
