University Settles Suit By Christian Counseling Student

The Springfield News-Leader reports that last month Missouri State University agreed to pay former student Andrew Cash $25,000 to settle a lawsuit brought by him charging that he was suspended from the Masters program in Counseling because of his religious beliefs. (See prior posting.) Cash says he was not allowed to complete his internship at a Christian counseling institute because it refuses to counsel same-sex couples, a position which Cash embraces. Under the settlement, Cash cannot seek readmission to Missouri State University.
