Did you see what happened when I registered yesterday Fruitloops? How long did my registered profile "Old Swiftboater Bill" last tough guy?

About half an hour. Then banished! Disappeared like in some cheap third world gay banana republic. Like the last 5 times.

Don't bother to try and tell me I get banned because I violate TOS. So do you and you don't get banned. Some posters are more equal than others on Topix.

And the motto of my little story is, don't bother registering if you're not in the club. Registering is for sissies. If you have been registered a long time, you are a sissy! The end.

Hope that helped!

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.
It's quite hypocritical of the church to ostracize someone for their sexuality but them's the rules and she knew it.

It's a sad story how they found out too but again them's the rules. She'll probably be much happier somewhere else it could have a silver lining for her. Hope so.

Imagine someone forcing you to keep an employee you didn't want. Imagine her working for an employer who doesn't want her.

Aren't all women PE teachers lesbians and why doesn't the church know this?

I mean come on. It's a given. Perhaps that will work for her. If I was her lawyer I'd use it!

WOO-HOOO!

I love how everyone disregards The Catholic Church's rights in this matter.
Their rights do not supersede those of the people they choose to interact with. If they don't want to follow society's rules, they should build compounds with 60 foot walls and lock themselves inside.

What "illegal action" are you referring to? Hale's violation of her employment contract?
Firing someone because of their sexual orientation.

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

If the Diocese fired everyone who committed immoral acts in their eyes, there would be few left to teach.

Your hatred of them is irrational, it's you who want to impose your ideas on them, control freak.

Has nothing to do with him. Has everything to do with the many moral men in this country - Catholics, elders, deacons, and ministers - who have sex outside of marriage, sometimes for the long term due to falling in love with someone who isn't their wife.

Sure... they claim "sin is sin", yet they don't act in accordance with that claim... Don't oint it out to them though... they don't believe they have double-standards.

I have no hatred. Just pointing out inconsistencies and double standards. Freedom of association does not supersede the law.

You do not attend the church or the school, so MYOB!

You don't believe in freedom, you want your progressive ideas being applied to a religious institution that you wish to suppress.

You either believe in the right to discriminate, or you don't believe in freedom of association.

You're no liberty lover, your a statist.

One's freedoms extend only to the point where they interfere with those of others. At that point, there must be an entity to determine which freedom is superior. The difference between us is that you believe the power to make such determinations should be top-down, whereas I believe it should be bottom-up.
