Scott Savage, a former Ohio State University-Mansfield reference librarian, is suing the university over discrimination he says he suffered because of his Christian beliefs.
In 2006, Savage served on the university’s First Year Reading Experience Committee, which determines required reading for incoming students. Believing other committee members’ selections were too liberal, Savage suggested four books, including The Marketing of Evil, by David Kupelian, Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis, by Bat Ye’or, and It Takes a Family, by former Pennsylvania Republican Sen. Rick Santorum.
Two professors responded with a sexual harassment complaint, saying Savage was homophobic, and that his book picks made them feel “unsafe.” Although that complaint was dismissed, Savage says he was professionally and personally harassed and forced to resign.
He has called the university “an aggressive proponent of the homosexual lifestyle by virtue of its practices and policies.” He seeks reinstatement as well as changes to the school’s sexual harassment policy.
