An employee who was fired for harassing a fellow employee may not sue her employer for discrimination. The employee claimed it was her religious duty as a Christian to constantly tell a gay coworker that she “was going to hell” and “had no right to live on this earth.” After the employee was fired, she filed a lawsuit claiming that she was discriminated against because of her religion. The federal appeals court ruled that the employee was fired for harassing her coworker, not because of her religion.
