We've reported on Julea Ward's story in the past. Now, state legislators in Michigan are doing something to help her situation and to help others who face discrimination over their pro-marriage views:
The Michigan House has passed a bill meant to prohibit religious discrimination against college students who study counseling, social work, and psychology.
The bill was prompted after student Julea Ward was kicked out of a counseling program at Eastern Michigan University for refusing to counsel a gay student, saying it conflicted with her Christian beliefs. Bill 5040, known as the, "Julea Ward Freedom of Conscience Act," passed 59-to-50 Wednesday. It now heads to the Senate for consideration. -- WHTC
