Carla Hale, 59, a lesbian P.E. teacher, has filed a grievance against the diocese of the Ohio Catholic school where she worked for 19 years until administrators fired her for "violating moral law."

The number of posters here that demonstrate less than a 3rd grade civics understanding is astounding. I've been trying to point out that the 1st amendment is not a get-out-of-jail-free card for religious organizations. There is a massive difference between the constitutional right to believe something and the right to practice it. An easy example is medical treatment for minors. A parent has the constitutional right to believe that prayer alone will cure their child's serious illness. But they do not have the constitutional right to actually deny conventional treatment to that minor child, as the courts have consistently upheld. I can't think of a simpler example of a clear restriction on religious practice by government that most sensible people agree with. So how do they forget this principle when discussing other conflicting interests/rights of individuals?

Precisely what provision of her contract did she violate? Exactly how was she "dishonest"?
Did the contract specifically state that she could not be in a same-sex relationship?
Or does it merely state that she has to be an example of "moral behavior"?
What evidence exists that she was not an example of "moral behavior"?
Queers advocate sodomy, elective abortion, and porn as virtues.

Straight people don't consider sodomy, elective abortion, and porn to be virtuous. Parents generally don't want their children being taught by perverts, and the RCC is especially sensitive to this predicament in light of the closeted queer priest sodomizing boys in the news.

A closeted lesbian revealed her predelictions inadvertantly, but that doesn't make her any less morally repulsive.

Furthering their general moral repulsiveness, queers lead a national victim cult, which is not only unconstitutional, it is fundamentally psychotic.

All of these facts are well known, but queers keep up a ridiculous charade.

Queers are now trying to lower the standards for a marriage license. In the not so distant past, local and state governments had minimum standards for acquiring a marriage license. Queers used shyster lawyer methods to invalidate all of the local standards for a marriage license. Local standards included all of the activities that queers do that prevent them from getting a marriage license....

Wikipedia:
A moral code is a system of morality (according to a particular philosophy, religion, culture, etc.) and a moral is any one practice or teaching within a moral code.
Does she work for Wikipedia?

So far, there is no evidence that anything in her contract says anything about same-sex relationships.

By the way, she's a Methodist. And they've apparently known that all along.

Flaunt? She did no "flaunting". She included her partner as a loved one in her mother's obituary.

That's "flaunting"?

And an anonymous bitch sent the obit to the good and moral leaders of the church. Then they fired her.

Nice "christians."

THAT'S what "jesus" would do?

Of if you're a catholic, you can be a hypocrite and fire people for absolutely no good reason, while at the same time retaining plenty of people (divorcees, users of birth control) who also violate the ever-changing moral code.(I forget, are the use of condoms immoral still or did Ratzo reverse the line on those morals?)

She violated nothing in her contract.

Her employers violated good sense and reason.

Give yourself a nice rest, psycho.

Also, stay away from other peoples kids, bungholio.

Closeted queers in positions of authority over kids are a curse.

The closeted queer priests that sodomized altar boys is a well known fact.

You can't spin the news here like you do on TV.

No spinning needed. I'm not closeted. And I'm teaching tomorrow, just as I have for many years.

Whether closeted or out and proud (proud of what?), queers are moral degenerates.

Keep your ideology and your hands off of other peoples kids.

You've convinced a lot of victim cult people and rednecks your kind is harmless.

Millions of elective abortions, multi-drug resistant STD, child sodomy, porn protected as free speech, government enforced AIDS hysteria, taxpayer NEA trash-art funding, hate speech prosecution, and queer education in public schools are not harmless activities.

On top of that, your kind is responsible for aggressive wars to impose victim cult ideology onto foreign nations.

Despite the fact that straight people practice oral and anal sex in huge numbers, are responsible for ALL of the elective abortions, and are responsible for the VAST majority of the porn industry?

At least START with the facts.

Why post things you KNOW aren't true, and are so easily debunked?

Because they behave in all of the same ways, and do ALL of the same things, and for all the same reasons, that straight people do?

Good point. The Columbus City Schools have no standards but in a Christian School there are standards, no matter how much homosexuals may dislike it.
I love the standard you folks have made for folks like me. You refuse to allow us to marry so we "aren't living in sin" then fire us for "living in sin".

Guess all that talk about forgiveness and compassion that Jesus spoke of is no longer part of the Catholic Faith.

"Flaunt it in Public?"

It's not like she put an announcement in the paper like YOU would do if you got married. She listed her partner in her Mom's obit. Her partner is part of her family.

Guess "family values" is just a slogan for you.
