Religious Camp Fires Counselor for Being Gay

A day after posting pictures of him and his boyfriend on Facebook, the Bellingham, WA  Fircreek Day Camp called counselor Jace Taylor into a meeting to discuss his termination.

“He sat me down and told me that I was terminated because of my sexual orientation,” Taylor said. “I wanted to bawl my eyes out, but I didn’t because it was a professional meeting.”

For Taylor, working at Fircreek, part of The Firs Camps and Retreats, wasn’t just any summer job.
He grew up going to the camp.


“I totally knew they had this doctrine, but I thought because the world is being so progressive lately, I wonder if they’ve changed,” Taylor said.

Taylor says he feels he was mislead.
