Attorney: Church autonomy no shield in Billy Graham discrimination case (access required)

By Amy Burroughs CHARLOTTE — The attorney for a woman suing the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) filed a response Oct. 8 arguing that the “Church Autonomy Doctrine” didn’t protect the organization from a race discrimination claim. The document was filed in U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina. Kimberly McCallum, a former employee of the BGEA, filed a lawsuit on June 22 accusing the organization of firing her because she is African-American and because she raised concerns about racism within the association.
