I'm not thinking it will. Misdemeanor. Could be wrong, but it's an awful lot of cash to be spent on what the city even considers a small matter. In the larger scheme of things, it's probably not a minor matter, but legally it sure seems to be.$1000 fine? Who are they going to arrest and put into jail? The person who signed the termination letter? The principal of the school? The woman who sent the anonymous letter? The Bishop?

I'll bet a donut that in 2-3 weeks time, this had died down, the issue goes away quietly, and this teacher is somewhere else of her own choosing.

The city probably won't prosecute, but the woman will sue presumably in Municipal Court.

Don't bet on it. Now there's been an extortion attempt, the placing of a cop at Watterson and the assignment of a cop to protect the principal.

The types supporting this lesbian are the types who go to parishes like this:

Yesterday as I parked my car on Western Avenue to attend Mass at Blessed Sacrament (just off Chevy Chase Circle) another Mass-goer came from behind me and parked his car on Quesada St, just outside the church's side door. He got out and went in.

I could not help but notice as he drove past me the garish rainbow-colored "Obama" bumper strip on his car. I realized he was in desperate need of some education. Fortunately I always carry a supply of Wisdom on Windshields. It is an educational flyer that can be placed on the car of the obviously oblivious fellow Catholic.

I resume my discussion of Blessed Sacrament. I picked up a parish bulletin. Because it was Saturday, the bulletin actually was for the previous weekend. Here it is. Now go to page 4 and look at the left-hand column. Why, oh why, is anything by Sister Joan Chittister being put forth as being suitable reading for Catholics? At Blessed Sacrament, is any responsible adult monitoring the goings-on at the parish library? I ask not only because of their dubious offerings but because I understand that it was the library that invited both Chris Matthews and Mark Shriver for their book-signings (both of which we picketed, by the way).

Moving down to page 5, on the right-hand side, we see that Blessed Sacrament is touting a celebration of Earth Day. "Well, so what?", one might ask. The problem is that the Washington Interfaith Network is spearheading this. WIN makes no bones that they are the DC-area affiliate of the Industrial Areas Foundation. As you look on their webpage, you'll see that they were "founded in 1940". By whom? Well they weren't always so coy about that little detail. The fact is that the IAF was the flagship organization founded by Saul Alinsky himself. The wikipedia (correctly) states that among the many people he influenced was Barack Obama. He also influenced Msgr Jack Egan, who was instrumental in establishing the Catholic Campaign for Human Development.

Now not only is the bulletin giving credibility to Alinskyites, but notice something else about the ad. They want to "reduce storm water pollution". Sounds nice, doesn't it? Well, the Maryland parishioners might want to take notice of that one in light of the "rain tax" with which Annapolis just saddled us.

I decided to take a look at this weekend's bulletin. Go to page 4. You'll see unabashed shilling for gun registration and the Catholic "climate covenant". Meanwhile prominent parishioners sport Obama stickers on their cars and the librarian hosts katholyc pro-aborts to sign their books on Church property. Boys and girls, what is wrong with this picture?

Extortion? I must've missed that one. I will admit to downing cold/allergy meds today...

Well if there's extortion in the air or some other nonsense, all my bets are off. I've been paying more attention to movies this afternoon than the news.

The Dispatch had it online last night and now it's gone. The diocese got an e-mail demanding $10,000 and reinstatement of Hale or else 10,000 protesters would show up at Watterson on a school day.

Damn. Blame it on Glitter, missed it and got some cold/allergy thing due to her. Will have to make sure I tune into the news during drive time tomorrow.

I did look for it once you mentioned it, but thought maybe I was just fog-brained. Thanks.

What I have read are the two phrases of the morals clause quoted in the newspaper. Pretty much boilerplate stuff.

You, however are convinced that the contract contains some very specific provisions regarding Catholicism and homosexuality. Hence my question.

Well duh, now you know why I said such in jest? Minor civil matter so far, no? Hurt feelings on part of the teach, and I seriously doubt that the Cbus law will hold up. Weak.

Meow. I am now going to sleep off the allergy meds.

If you don't think there will likely be a civil suit in the future I'd say you're a bit naive.

Upon her hiring, the employee signed a contract agreeing to abide by certain requirements of the employer for the duration of her employment.

She was found to be in breach of contract with no intent to remedy.

But again...employment is at will between the parties.

The End.

Well, I don't own a crystal ball. I don't know what will happen.

But you're not as intelligent as I believed if you don't think the Diocese will seriously fight this on religious grounds. Who has the deeper pockets: the teach or the Diocese? It's not without precedent, admittedly though I am unsure whether other dioceses where it happened were affected by a municipal law. I wouldn't doubt some were, though.

As a lifelong Catholic, I'd be with you on this thought: it's going to be an interesting battle if it does come about.

Plus there was another recently in Cincinnati. I couldn't find a quick link to it. You're free to conjecture as you wish, Counselor.

I never said that the Church wouldn't fight it. But those deep pockets often are a double edged sword. And if anyone with hiring/firing authority was aware of it for a long period of time, they won't come out on top.
