A Christian dentist in Michigan is being sued by four former employees for playing Christian music in her clinic and praying with staff members against their will. The former employees claim that Dr. Tina Marshall caused them distress by forcing her religion on them. 


According to the complaint, the plaintiffs, "are seeking damages for loss of past and future income and employment benefits, outrage, humiliation, embarrassment, mental anxiety, emotional distress, and loss of professional reputation."


The employees also claim that Marshall violated Michigan’s Elliott Larsen Civil Rights Act, which prohibits employers from discriminating based on religion, race, nationality, age, sex, or marital status. 


Christian Today reports the lawsuit was filed against Marshall last August and a trial by jury will begin this summer. 


Marshall's attorney Keith Jablonski denies his client violated any laws, and is being targeted by disgruntled former employees for her faith


Marshall is "being attacked in this lawsuit for her Christian beliefs, based solely on her desire to play religious music and radio stations in the dental office of the business that she owns,” Jablonski said.
