What did I tell you last week? She has NO case. She signed a contract and since the Catholic school is a private school, they decide you will be allowed to work for them.
The Catholic Church has not problems with homosexuals, or even pedophiles. It has to do with CONDUCT! Deviant sexual activity is a sin and it does not matter if you are a priest or lay employee!

Fired gay Ohio teacher: Union won't back complaint
Fired gay Ohio teacher says committee from Catholic educators' union won't back her complaint
Associated Press –

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)-- A gay teacher challenging her firing by an Ohio Catholic school says the local union for Catholic educators has decided not to proceed with her complaint.
Carla Hale said Monday the grievance committee for the Central Ohio Association of Catholic Educators isn't supporting her efforts to get back her job as a physical-education teacher. The association hasn't returned telephone calls seeking comment.
Hale also filed a complaint with the city of Columbus, which prohibits firings based on sexual orientation.
Hale says she was fired from Bishop Watterson High School after her partner's name was revealed in her mother's published obituary and someone complained.
Bishop Frederick Campbell says Hale was fired not because of her sexual orientation but because she violated the church's moral teaching by having what he describes as a "quasi-spousal relationship" with a woman.

Who said he was buried? The issue was were there protests anything like the current case concerning burial of the terrorist's remains.(That's right genius, protests concerning (possible) burial doesn't imply that the burial actually occurred. Duh!)

As I recall. There was a law passed denying McVeigh military burial, not burial per se.

Yes, but his next of kin, his wife, did not claim his body and they did not have to turn his body to anyone other than his NOK. He should have been buried in a prison yard!

Hummm, in early 1963 my dad sold Billy our house in El Paso, TX. We were on orders to Fort Rucker, AL and no one would buy our house so dad had a private meeting with him and explained our situation and it bought our house at 9947 Falkirk Dr.
Three years later we had moved to Fort Leavenworth, KS and old Billy was in the Federal Pen at Leavenworth! You would have thought that his buddy LBJ would have pardoned him!

Flamboyant Texas swindler Billie Sol Estes dies
Billie Sol Estes, colorful '60s Texas swindler whose case became national sensation, has died Associated Press

GRANBURY, Texas (AP)-- Billie Sol Estes, a flamboyant Texas huckster who became one of the most notorious men in America in 1962 when he was accused of looting a federal crop subsidy program, has died. He was 88.
Estes, whose name became synonymous with Texas-sized schemes, greed and corruption, was found dead by a caretaker early Tuesday in his home in DeCordova Bend, a city about 60 miles southwest of Dallas, said Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds. A local funeral home confirmed it would be handling the services.
Estes reigned in the state as the king of con men for nearly 50 years. He was best known for the scandal that broke out during the Kennedy administration involving phony financial statements and non-existent fertilizer tanks.
Several lower-level agriculture officials resigned, and he wound up spending several years in prison. His name was often linked with that of fellow Texan Lyndon Johnson, but the late president's associates said their relationship was never as close or as sinister as the wheeler-dealer implied.

Hey Obama – Ever Heard of a ‘Fact Checker’? Oh, That’s Right – We’re Supposed to Let You Tell Us What’s True.

14 May 2013 / 20 Comments

“The day after it happened, I acknowledged that this was an act of terrorism.”

— President Obama, remarks at a news conference, May 13, 2013

Once again, it appears that we must parse a few presidential words. We went through this question at length during the 2012 election, but perhaps a refresher course is in order.

Notably, during a debate with Republican nominee Mitt Romney, President Obama said that he immediately told the American people that the killing of the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans in Libya “was an act of terror.” But now he says he called it “an act of terrorism.”

Some readers may object to this continuing focus on words, but presidential aides spend a lot of time on words. Words have consequences. Is there a difference between “act of terror” and “act of terrorism”?

The Facts

Immediately after the attack, the president three times used the phrase “act of terror” in public statements:

“No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.”

— Obama, Rose Garden, Sept. 12

“We want to send a message all around the world — anybody who would do us harm: No act of terror will dim the light of the values that we proudly shine on the rest of the world, and no act of violence will shake the resolve of the United States of America.”

— Obama, campaign event in Las Vegas, Sept. 13

“I want people around the world to hear me: To all those who would do us harm, no act of terror will go unpunished. It will not dim the light of the values that we proudly present to the rest of the world. No act of violence shakes the resolve of the United States of America.”

— Obama, campaign event in Golden, Colo., Sept. 13

Here’s how we assessed those words back in October:

Note that in all three cases, the language is not as strong as Obama asserted in the debate. Obama declared that he said “that this was an act of terror.” But actually the president spoke in vague terms, usually wrapped in a patriotic fervor. One could presume he was speaking of the incident in Libya, but he did not affirmatively state that the American ambassador died because of an “act of terror.”

Some readers may think we are dancing on the head of pin here. The Fact Checker spent nine years as diplomatic correspondent for The Washington Post, and such nuances of phrasing are often very important. A president does not simply utter virtually the same phrase three times in two days about a major international incident without careful thought about the implications of each word.

The Fact Checker noted last week that this was an attack on what essentially was a secret CIA operation, which included rounding up weapons from the very people who may have attacked the facility.

And this was posted on Yahoo News too!!! I think the press is very pissed off about Obama and Obama has lost the best friends he ever had.

Is Obama Worse For Press Freedom Than Nixon?
by James C. Goodale May 14, 2013 12:11 PM EDT

James Goodale defended the New York Times during the Pentagon Papers. But Nixon had nothing on Obama, writes the First Amendment lawyer—and that’s bad news for freedom of the press.

President Barack H. Obama’s outrageous seizure of the Associated Press’s phone records, allegedly to discover sources of leaks, should surprise no one. Obama has relentlessly pursued leakers ever since he became president. He is fast becoming the worst national security press president ever, and it may not get any better.

Well said. And I'm sure you had understood that I was not celebrating this long-established custom of countries eavesdropping on their citizens. We're stuck with it. Deplorable as most of these sleuths so to speak have no idea how to handle all that information.
