Missouri State University has joined a growing number of government institutions that punish Christians for their biblical view of marriage and homosexual relationships, dismissing a student from a counseling program for expressing concern about counseling same-sex duos, according to a new lawsuit.

WND has documented the legal punishment of photographers, florists, bakers and others for upholding the Christian definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Now a lawsuit alleges Missouri State officials have punished former counseling student Andrew Cash for his support of traditional marriage.

The lawsuit from the Thomas More Society alleges the discrimination was carried out by Missouri State governors Peter Hofherr, Joe Carmichael, Stephen Hoven, Carrie Tergin, Beverly Miller, Gregory Spears, Kendall Seal, Tyree Lewis, Gabrial Gore and Virginia Fry, as well as President Clifton Smart III, Internship Coordinator Kristi Perryman, Tamara Arthaud, the head of the counseling department, and Angela Anderson, a faculty member.
