This case brings up mixed emotions in me! On one hand, I see the Catholic Church's point of being free to do what it considers right, without interference. However, As a "Trans" person myself, I see the needs for protection in the workplace and employment it's self. I admire Mr Buterman's courageous stand and hope it works out well for him.
