Georgia Drops Demands For Copies of Sermons In Discrimination Case

As previously reported, last month the Georgia Department of Public Health created significant controversy when, as part of its discovery requests in a religious discrimination lawsuit filed against it by a Seventh Day Adventist lay minister, it asked its former employee to furnish notes or transcripts of his sermons. Christian Post reported this week that Georgia has now dropped that demand, but is still asking for his ministerial credentials; proof he has served with the Seventh Day Adventist church; his contracts with the Church; and details any compensation for his sermons.
