How about the rest of the students? Do any of them support him?
A catholic school in my neck of the woods had a male teacher who married his male friend. When the school learned of this, they fired him. However, some students drew up a petition to let him keep his job; they even picketed and demonstrated outside the school. Now maybe the younger generation of catholics are discovering the injustice and anti-human rights stance of their religion.
In a related case in my neighboring state of Oregon, a woman was hired by a catholic girls' school, but the offer was withdrawn when it was learned she is a lesbian. Immediately the administration called her in and told her that she would not be hired but that the administration would pay her off if she would keep quiet about the situation and let the catholic school off the hook. Well, I think she told the news media because it was reported on the TV news, but I can't recall whether she was suing to keep her job.
In a third case, (this was quite a while ago) a catholic teacher at a catholic high school was fired because she wasn't true to catholic teachings. Her crime? She was living with her boyfriend. My, my, what a horrendous transgression.
