Christian Teacher Refuses to Use Transgender Names, Sues School, Loses
John Kluge, an orchestra teacher in Brownsburg Community School from 2014 to 2018, sued his former employer over the school's transgender name policy. Kluge was asked to address students by their first names, including the chosen names adopted by transgender students. Kluge and three other teachers sent a letter to the school's principal, stating that to "encourage students in transgenderism" is a sin. Kluge was forced to resign in 2018. In 2019, Kluge filed a lawsuit arguing that the school violated his First Amendment rights. The district judge rejected Kluge's argument, explaining that he was, at that time, a government employee who was instructed to carry out his job. Two years after, in July 2021, Judge Magnus-Stinson dismissed Kluge's religious discrimination lawsuit. The judge stated that Brownsburg Community School "has an obligation to meet the needs of all of its students, not just... the students that were unaware of or unbothered by Mr. Kluge's practice of using last names only."
