Well, this has to be a bad week in the public relations department for the Michigan Attorney General's office. He didn't have much of a choice. When a staff member goes bad in their off-time from the office of the Michigan AG, it's the Michigan Civil Service that has to make a decision.
Here, they announced this: Link: http://www.cnn.com/2010/US/11/08/michigan.asst.attorney.general/index.html?hpt=T2
For one thing, Michigan AG Mike Cox didn't like to do it, but when he found his employee, Andrew Shirvell, lying about what Andrew did, it lined up his termination.
Andrew Shirvell shouldn't be able to hide behind the first amendment to say he had a right to attack an openly gay student, Chris Armstrong who is the student body president, at his alma mater through his blog work. Sadly to say, Andrew Shirvell can't step back on his campus again at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor because he's disbarred from it.
In sense, Andrew Shirvell became a radical Christian bully who doesn't represent the cause of Jesus Christ. Jesus would be ashamed of him because of the actions that Shirvell did.
I don't think we have heard the last of Shirvell. But Shirvell might want to lay low for a while and hope he finds another job somewhere in this state of economics.
If you are going to be a bully out there, no matter what religion you are, you better be ready to take responsibility for your actions. Justice is costly. For now, justice was done indeed.
Perhaps, this announcement by the Michigan AG is a bit of a positive PR for them. Hope for better days for them.
