COLUMBIA, Tenn. — An in-house review of a professor's class assignment on gay acceptance at Columbia State Community College concludes she didn't discriminate.
According to The Daily Herald, the investigation cleared Dr. Linda Brunton, who is a psychology professor.
The college said Brunton asked, but did not require, students to wear rainbow ribbons to experience prejudice directed at gay people.
A statement by the college said students' First Amendment rights were not violated and there was no evidence of discrimination on religious grounds.
The investigation was undertaken after the Alliance Defending Freedom sent a complaint letter to Columbia State President Janet Smith.
