Former Lee’s Summit policeman Caleb Horner says the police department is discriminating against him because of his religious beliefs in refusing to give him back his job.

He’s filed a lawsuit. He says he’s been asking to return to work since his wife died five years ago today. She died a month after giving birth at home to a stillborn child. Horner says his wife never asked for medical help during that month and put her hope in prayer and worship.
