'Because You're Gay, You Don't Believe in God': Fired After 15 Years, Woman Sues for Anti-LGBT Dis-

'Because Youíre Gay, You Donít Believe in God': Fired After 15 Years, Woman Sues for Anti-LGBT Discrimination

After working for a Kentucky credit union for 15 years and receiving positive performance reviews Penelope Hudson was fired, according to her lawsuit, for being a lesbian. The court documents filed Friday against the Park Community Credit Union are stunning.

Hudson's lawsuit alleges she was "passed over for promotions due to her supervisor's animus toward lesbians," and she was told to change her appearance because she was "too butch" to deal with customers. She "was called 'unprofessional' because she wore her hair short," NCRM was told. This came after she heard her supervisors talking about her appearance, saying she had to alter it to not only get promoted but to keep her job.

The court filing says "her sexual orientation was discussed with other employees and customers overheard those conversations." It also says her supervisors and co-workers talked about her sexual orientation and would "belittle" Hudson as not being a "typical woman."

One of her supervisors asked that employees at her branch pray for good numbers, but noted that Hudson, the lawsuit alleges, doesn't believe in God since she is gay. "Because youíre gay, you donít believe in God," they said, NCRM was told.

2. Oh, me too. While there are intolerant assholes all over the country

the southern variety is particularly trying, especially when they shove bibles they've never read into your face to justify their rotten behavior..

This woman must be an absolute miracle of patience to have withstood that kind of rotten treatment for 15 years. I hope she'll end up owning the place by the time she's finished.

3. Kentucky

Great, my home state strikes again. And this is a non-religious institution in Louisville, not some back woods organization.

Her bigoted supervisor should have been the one fired. I will never understand why Christians hate gay people, it is very strange and cruel.
