Maritime Park Worker Sues After Being Fired For Helping With Baptism
Courthouse News Service reported last week on a religious discrimination suit filed in a California federal district court. A maintenance worker at the Maritime National Historic Park in San Francisco, who is also a Baptist minister, says he was fired for helping to baptize a visitor in the ocean. The baptism took place while the minister Roger Holly was on his lunch break and was not in uniform. Holly, who is African-American, had previously complained about racial discrimination.
