    But it does go to show there's really no hiding in those places. Wasn't there another guy in Ohio who came forward supporting gay marriage or something and got booted by his diocese? Seems like that just happened a month or so ago.

    So while this teacher is mourning the loss of her mom, a supposedly caring parent does their damnedest to screw her and then instead of respecting her time of grief the Catholic school fires her?

    What would Jesus say?

    Probably that they are supposed to love the sinner, not fire them for their 'sin'.

    Ahhh, here it go...

    http://joemygod.blogspot.com/2013/02/ohio-catholic-church-fires-principal.html

    Mike Moroski, former Principal, Purcell Marian HS in Cincy"On Monday, February 4, the Archdiocese of Cincinnati gave me an ultimatum after I expressed my personal opinion in support of freedom to marry for gay and lesbian couples. I was asked to resign as assistant principal at Purcell Marian High School, or keep my job until June by signing documents recanting my statements. I was given this ultimatum after I wrote a blog on my personal web page entitled, 'Choosing Your Battles.' I could not in good conscience recant my statements. The Archdiocese of Cincinnati has now put me on administrative leave with a pending termination. As a proud Catholic, I’m heartbroken that my belief that all committed, loving couples should be able to make a public pledge to take responsibility for each other for a lifetime has led to this ultimatum."


    What's hi, and homophobic, and round at both ends???

    Besides that we don't choose who we love--it's not really a decision--we just love, the biggest outrage shouldn't even be so much the firing for being gay (though that's substantial and easier for people to wrap their brains around), rather, the outrage ought to be that this person's mourning, not her vagina but her heart, was disrespected.

    That's what speaks to our humanity and to the lack of any humanity of substance from within the Diocese and of course the complete lack of it about that scumbag parent who complained to them in the first place while the victim was grieving her great loss.

    Where they don't consider us to be human beings goes deeper than our ability just to earn a living. It is their not considering us human which allows them to fire and otherwise seek to harm us.

    Those bastards aren't kidding when they equate being gay with bestiality. They don't think we're human. That should be the outrage.

    I'd heard about this, but didn't know what city or what school until I read the Columbus Dispatch article. We only have two Catholic schools (Watterson and St. Francis DeSales) and one Catholic prep school in the Columbus area. I'm a little surprised because I'd always though of these school as pretty liberal. .

    I agree with that whole heartedly. The time is well past due for the remaining 28 states to protect GLBT Americans from discrimination in employment. Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania should already have those laws on their books, WTFicon_mad.gif

    That's why I'm surprised at this. I've found them overall to be wonderful people. I know quite a few from the two columbus Catholic high schools.

    I keep saying that sending kinds exclusively to Catholic schools is child abuse. You're not teaching them to think critically and make their own choices, you're literally imposing your own personal prejudice upon children. Kids should go to public and non-religous schools by law, then practice whatever religion their parents want for them on Sundays or Saturdays whenever they're free to do so. There's not such a thing as freedom if you lack education. If such a law did exist, religion wouldn't vanish but it will most likely be practiced by a new generation with much lower levels of idiocity.

    What exactly is wrong with Catholic Schools? (aside from decisions like the Ohio school)

    I went to Catholic School here in the northeast and we were still taught a regular biology course including evolution. Back in the early 2000 era I don't think intelligent design was even an issue yet so it wasn't somewhere we were even taught.
