Dearborn public schools pay $24,500 to settle lawsuit with Christian wrestling coach fired for his faith by Muslim principal
The transition to Sharia even in Dearborn is not going to be without a speed bump here and there. An update on this story. “Dearborn schools pay to settle lawsuit by coach,” from Associated Press, October 6 (thanks to Dave):
DETROIT – A wrestling coach who claimed he lost his job at a suburban Detroit high school because of his Christian faith has settled the lawsuit for $24,500.
Gerald Marszalek, who is 65, also received $500 from Dearborn Public Schools in exchange for waiving any claim of age discrimination.
Marszalek was a coach at Fordson High School, where Muslim students are a majority. He said his troubles with the school’s Muslim principal, Imad Fadlallah, began in 2005 when a volunteer assistant, the Rev. Trey Hancock, introduced some wrestlers to Christianity during a camp away from school….
Fadlallah recently retired as Fordson principal. In August, two award-winning teachers filed a lawsuit accusing him of harassment because they’re not Muslim.
