When the Community College of Baltimore County turned down Brandon Jenkins' application to its radiation therapy program, he asked for an explanation. In an email, the program's director said several other applicants had better grades than Jenkins, but she also singled out his response to an interview question. When asked what was the most important thing to him, he said, "My God." The director wrote that radiation therapy "is not the place for religion." She went on to tell him that in any future interviews he might want to leave his "thoughts and beliefs out."Jenkins has sued the school, claiming it violated his First Amendment rights.
