Call It Out: Cincinnati Christian School Should Revisit Hiring Practices
June 6, 2012 by Dan Rafter, Online Campaigns Manager
HRC, Equality Cincinnati and Equality Ohio are calling on Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy not to factor one’s sexual orientation or gender identity into their hiring practices. The groups launched the action after Jonathan Zeng, a local Cincinnati teacher, said the non-denominational school rescinded a verbal job offer after calling him and directly questioning him about his sexual orientation.
Cincinnati’s non-discrimination protections do cover sexual orientation and gender identity. HRC recognizes that as a religious school, Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy is exempt and did not break any law. But in a day and age where nearly 90 percent of Christians say they believe their faith compels them to support equal protections under the law for LGBT people, the school’s action is wrong and out-of-touch.
Those looking to speak out and call on the Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy to truly embrace their mission and hire the most qualified job candidates can take action via HRC, Equality Cincinnati and Equality Ohio. The online action is available here.
