Did you get this info from Carl Sagan or Stephen Hawking?
Actually, I don't mean to be rude. Your info is no doubt valuable, and you're right in that I should look into the origin of this horrible disease. Still, it seems gays get blamed for a lot of things that have nothing to do with them. For instance, my grandfather, whom I adored, was very much a homophobe and I'm NOT - he once told me that when my son went to school he hoped he'd get a gay teacher, so that I'd know gays could turn other people gay. Well, it turns out my son DID have a gay teacher and guess what? It DIDN'T "turn him gay". He's grown up now, got married to woman, they're both psychologists and are heterosexual.
Opposing typical LGBTQ behaviors of sodomy, elective abortion, STD proliferation, and pornography is not a phobia, or an irrational fear.

Also, sodomy is not sex. "Anal sex" is an oxymoron.

Playing word games will not help your cause.

That's an excellent point.

Two of the most horrible diseases that afflict mankind have originated in Dark Africa, Aids and Ebola but some extremely barbaric and unnatural acts are clearing going on in the land of voodoo, witch doctors and devil worship.

That is why so many nations in Africa are corrupt, bankrupt and vile like Somalia, Sudan, Zimbabwe, Nigeria and Botswana.

I am a 63 year old LAPSED catholic like most are today. According to the American Bishops conference in 2010 only 1 in 4 american catholics attend mandatory sunday mass weekly. Imagine a large corporation and only 25% of the work force come to work when required?
Why would Jesus attach his name to an organization that has been loaded with pedophiles, and the clergy who didn't abuse lied and covered up these worst of crimes from you and everyone else?....
Sexual abuse has been a problem with catholic clergy since the 3rd century....
Below read and learn the canon laws and papal documents of your own church.

I report the truth and nothing but the truth.......don't want to know the truth, put your head back in the sand with the rest of the catholics.
UNBELIEVABLE!.........and thanks for reading my posts!
Jesus is dead if he ever lived, the church is based on an faction.

BACK on topic. Apparently the Cinci teacher who is challenging her firing because she was impregnated by artificial insemination is in court today. Apparently the Diocese in that case is claiming a ministerial exemption from the law. The teacher claims that the policy is applied unevenly based on gender and marital status--and further challenges her categorization as being in any way ministerial. Forget what she taught (computer science?)--but there was no religious teaching involved.

I would imagine that the precedent in that case will be very important to Ms. Hale.

Ms. Hale clearly broke the terms of her contract.
Keep trying.
