Adams sued after being denied promotion due to his religious views. The Alliance Defense Fund (ADF), which has come to Adams' defense, is now considering options to appeal the decision.
In a statement, ADF Senior Counsel Jordan Lorence was quoted, “We disagree with the court’s assessment that Dr. Adams’ speech is somehow not protected by the Constitution. Opinion columns are classic examples of free speech protected by the First Amendment, and mentioning them on a promotion application does not change this fact.”
Additionally, the upward trajectory of Adams' professorial career seems to have plateaued following his conversion to Christianity after priorly being atheist. Coincidence? What do you think?
