What happens when an employer tries to punish an employee for their pro-intelligent design views? On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews William J. Becker, Jr., a first amendment attorney in California. Mr. Becker is the attorney for David Coppedge who filed suit this week against NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). The lawsuit claims that supervisors at JPL illegally harassed and demoted Mr. Coppedge, a high-level computer system administrator and Team Lead on the Cassini Mission to Saturn project, for expressing support of intelligent design to co-workers. Listen in and learn about the religious discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and wrongful demotion David Coppedge suffered, and stay tuned to Evolution News & Views for continuing updates on this story.
