SCOTUS Rejects Appeal Of University Official Canned For Anti-Gay Op-Ed

Last December, the Sixth Federal Court of Appeals upheld the firing of former University of Toledo human resources director Crystal Dixon, who was canned in 2008 after an Ohio newspaper published her op-ed column in which she denounced LGBT rights and promoted the "ex-gay" movement. Dixon, long a martyr for anti-gay hate groups, was represented by the anti-gay Thomas More Center, who yesterday had their final appeal rejected by the US Supreme Court. The Thomas More Center has not yet reacted on their website.  Here's an excerpt from the column that started it all:
As a Black woman who happens to be an alumnus of the University of Toledo's Graduate School, an employee and business owner, I take great umbrage at the notion that those choosing the homosexual lifestyle are "civil rights victims." Here's why. I cannot wake up tomorrow and not be a Black woman. I am genetically and biologically a Black woman and very pleased to be so as my Creator intended. Daily, thousands of homosexuals make a life decision to leave the gay lifestyle evidenced by the growing population of PFOX (Parents and Friends of Ex Gays) and Exodus International just to name a few. Frequently, the individuals report that the impetus to their change of heart and lifestyle was a transformative experience with God; a realization that their choice of same-sex practices wreaked havoc in their psychological and physical lives.
