Dr. Paul Roof has facial hair that is the envy of hipsters far and wide. But it also got him fired. Roof, who was a professor of sociology at small Christian school Charleston Southern University was terminated last week after his likeness appeared on a beer can for Holy City Brewing. The image was taken from a photograph snapped at a beard competition in New Orleans. He received no compensation for the image and it was done without his consent.
He was told he was fired because his actions weren’t considered ” representative of a Christian environment.” Roof responded: “For me a Christian environment entails two things: looking out for other people and forgiveness of others who’ve transgressed you.”
Pretty sure there are some government officials that could benefit from that mantra.
