Community College Of Baltimore County: Anti-Religious Bigots??

Last year Brandon Jenkins applied for admission to the Radiation Therapy Program at the Community College of Baltimore County.  He had all the academic qualifications.  During the interview portion of the admission process, he was asked what was the "most important thing to him".  He had the audacity to answer "my God".  That was deemed unacceptable and he was told that "the field of radiation therapy is not the place for religion."

Yesterday the American Center for Law and Justice filed suit on Jenkin's behalf, stating that Jenkin's First Amendment rights were violated.  The suit asks that Jenkins be admitted into the program and that the school be enjoined from engaging in any retaliation against him.  We'll be following this closely.
