Brickbat: You Gotta Have Faith

When the Community
College of Baltimore County turned down Brandon Jenkins’
application to itsĀ radiation
therapy program
, he asked for an explanation. In an email, the
program’s director said several other applicants had better grades
than Jenkins, but she also singled out his response to an interview
question. When asked what was the most important thing to him, he
said, “My God.” The director wrote that radiation therapy “is not
the place for religion.” She went on to tell him that in any future
interviews he might want to leave his “thoughts and beliefs
out.”Jenkins has sued the school, claiming it violated his First
Amendment rights.
