Most of those aren't illegal firings.

The illegal action that resulted from the church's view is the issue, not the view itself.
What "illegal action" are you referring to? Hale's violation of her employment contract?

Yes, it was unjust and illegal discrimination, a person being fired solely for being gay. And it goes against everything Jesus Christ stood for, it is an insult to the students and the reason education exists. One hopes the teacher sues the daylights out of the bigots who made this decision.
Jesus Christ didn't teach any of us to violate employment contracts.

That's what happened here. Hale violated the terms of her employment contract.

And you just PROVED you are the liar. NOTHING she did violated this contract. NOTHING. Your blind stupid support of Jim Crow doesn't change FACTS, and the fact is this was an illegal and immoral firing.
Hyperventilating doesn't enforce your argument.

She was fired for violating the terms of her employment contract.

Homosexuality is not remotely comparable or connected to pedophilia. Being gay is NOT wrong, and this "end of days" bunkum is entirely manmade. You are NOT reading the "word of God," you're reading the writing of PEOPLE and IGNORING God's law, which is to love your neighbor. Your hate and bigotry is sinful and depraved. There are no more gay people in this generation than at any time in history. We're just more educated and tolerant...as Christ would want us to be.
Jesus Christ believed in the Old Testament, Leviticus 18:22, Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind. It is abomination.
Your problem is with the Word of God!

But your warning for me to "watch out!" implies that I could suddenly become gay!

So what is it? Should you watch out you don't catch gay or are you as Lady Ga Ga so eloquently puts it "Born this way"?

At least Obama hasn't whined that he inherited a bad economy since his second term began!

It's getting pretty late to blame Bush. Even Obama gave up that loser talk. You should too.

That "extra dollar" of mine is being matched by an awful lot of people this diocese, Reader. Your girl's supporters are all mouth and immaturity...not rationality or money.
So money is the critical factor for the church?

Face it. There are a lot of Catholics with gay family and friends, as sell as Catholics who are gay. They have already been acting on the church's tenets of acceptance, respect and kind treatment. Hard to see how yanking the economic rug fits the bill. And they are not likely to take kindly to seeing charitable dollars defending sjch clumsiness in court.
