Washington, D.C. - Former federal employee Peter TerVeer says the fact that he "liked" the "Two Dads" parenting page on Facebook cost him his job.

TerVeer, who worked as a management analyst at the Library of Congress, said that soon after his Facebook update, his boss, John Mech, turned against him.

TerVeer said that his previously glowing reviews turned negative and Mech started sending him "religiously motivated" harassing emails, reported ABC News.

TerVeer said he took 37 days off work for stress, on the advice of his therapist, and was fired.
