Astronomer Alleges Religious Discrimination at University of Kentucky

By Rick Pearcey • December 17, 2010, 08:57 AM

"An astronomer argues that his Christian faith and his peers' belief that he is an evolution skeptic kept him from getting a prestigious job as the director of a new student observatory at the University of Kentucky," AP reports.

"Martin Gaskell quickly rose to the top of a list of applicants being considered by the university's search committee," says the news service.

"One member said he was 'breathtakingly above the other applicants.' Others openly worried his Christian faith could conflict with his duties as a scientist, calling him 'something close to a creationist' and 'potentially evangelical'."
