Jonathan Zeng was offered a music teaching position at Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy. He accepted the job. Shortly thereafter, school administrator David Thompson called Zeng back to the office. According to Zeng, this is how the meeting went:
He explained that there was an issue weighing on his mind because of my application answers regarding my belief in Christ's unconditional love and that we as Christ's followers are to show that love to all without judgment. These responses prompted him to ask if I was a homosexual. I was completely taken aback by this and asked why that was important. He explained that it was school policy not to employ teachers who are homosexual. When I asked why, he said that it was because I would work with children and because of the sanctity of marriage."Cincinnati Christian School Asks Teacher if He's Gay, Fires Him" (Towelroad, thanks Tara McGinley!)
