Can you IMAGINE even WANTING a job in Circleville, Ohio? Probably picking lint off black t-shirts or guarding the manure factory or crash test living dummies are the main businesses in that..ahem..."TOWN".

I just read that the town used to be called "Circlejerk", but the town fathers thought that not quite right in these politically correct times.

Probably neither..look how many years it took for the RCC to admit to child molestation, or even earlier to employing 'castrati'..good luck fighting or getting the RCC to admit to anything. As a matter of fact look at the denying 'believers' on here; do their comments seem very 'christian'?
Yeah.

The didn't get to Hale because they were busy with the castrati issue.

That makes sense.

Now now, Curteese..I know I'm not a good example..But I'm trying not to sink that level. Besides, there are good people everywhere, most are just repressed (no thank you to organized religion).

LOL

Now it's the town that's somehow lacking.

It was good enough for Hale, but you and Curteese know better.

Had Hale been hired back or some gov't entity forced the school to pay her or rehire her, you'd think the place was Oz.

Making sense?

Trolling for historical shortcoming of the RCC and applying them to Hale's contract violation is now "sense"?

Mmmkay.

Your hatred and bigotry are unremarkable -- casting stones at glass houses sort of thing.

And no, I don't text and drive. I like getting there in one piece, unharmed.

Look.... I'm not a fan of bigots or bigoted organizations. If they illegally or unfairly discriminate, they should have consequences to face. But let's be real here... a gay person ought to find work somewhere else besides the Catholic Church/school in the first place. A teacher really ought to have more brains than to expect there won't eventually be a problem.

But you're speaking of someone who fails to comprehend the natural use of her own standard equipment. It follows that she would make other plain errors as well.

The original comment was funny. Sorry if you can't take a joke. Your "me" vs. "you"/black and white thinking will get you nowhere. Small minds.
