A Saginaw therapist filed suit on May 11 in federal court alleging she was fired for her Catholic faith.

An attorney for Kathleen Lorentzen says she faced workplace harassment and was eventually fired in September of 2017 after asking her supervisor to refer a gay couple to another therapist.

Lorentzen, while working for HealthSource of Saginaw, had seen the couple twice for marriage counseling but felt she could not counsel them because of her faith.
