Peter TerVeer says boss cited passages from the Bible condemning homosexuality

Peter TerVeer was promoted three times after he began working as a management analyst at the Library of Congress’s Office of the Inspector General in 2008.

Then his boss found out he was gay.

TerVeer, who was fired from his job last week, has filed a discrimination complaint which states that he was harassed and humiliated by a supervisor who repeatedly cited passages from the Bible condemning homosexuality.
