A private Christian university in Washington that admits to discriminating against LGBTQ+ job applicants is being sued by dozens of current and former students, faculty, and staff.Seattle Pacific University has been under investigation by the state since May after Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson received multiple complaints from students, staff, and faculty regarding the hiring policies at SPU.
In June, the university responded to an inquiry from Ferguson by filing a suit in federal court requesting protection from the Washington state investigation due to its exemption as a religious institution.
SPU freely admits it discriminates against applicants who are involved in same-sex sexual relationships as they say the practice violates the institution’s religious principles.In their suit against SPU, the plaintiffs claim the university has failed “to serve the educational interest of its students” because of its anti-LGBTQ+ hiring practices.
