Ridiculous. If that's the case, the Vatican, with its endless supply of financial resources could have stomped her.
Both parties had incentives to settle. So they did.
Go read "Getting to Yes". One of the most useful books you'll ever pick up.

I heard they told her/him to take her/his retirement or nothing and she or he took her/his retirement.

In a settlement like this everyone comes away with something that they can live with. Ms. Hale can now work for Columbus City Schools where her lifestyle choices are a better fit.
Columbus City Schools - openly gay
Columbus Diocese - closet gay

Win-win for everyone! A drink for the priests!

The most pathetic part of the story, is that over 130,000 signed the petition online to support her and reinstate her job back, while only 700 support the school's decision to fire her.

That was not 700 supporters, that was George signing with all of his Topix screen names.

Hmmm. According to the Dispatch article, her attorney wouldn't state whether she got any settlement from the Church. My thinking: she got credit for years held in the job for drawing pension. Likely if any settlement made, it wasn't much. It's private likely because the agreement was reached via mediation. Hale's attorney also asked to withdraw the complaint. Remember, the church doesn't play friendly with its moral opposition...and dragging this case out on Hale's end could have cost her big bucks.

Its taking a few decades, but they're making progress. Guess they had to get instructions from God on how to accomplish it.

She easily could have won, and likely did not care to go through the ordeal or expense, when a settlement is a no-brainer on the part of the diocese.

A more apt question is why would the diocese settle if their actions were legally justifiable? The answer is self evident.

That's because female teachers being boned by their students is vastly under-reported :)

They were infiltrated by liberal pedophiles intentionally in an attempt to destroy the church! Politically motivated by the insane democrats.

Just like this gal/guy, she/he was part of the disgusting infiltration!

We don't have to infiltrate a thing - we are already there, and always have been.

If you want gay folks to stop belonging to various church denominations and believing in God, then all of you will need to teach all your kids to be atheists, because your gay kids are listening in church just like the straight ones.

And why would you believe that Democrats have anything to do with Republicans having gay children? I though you folks did that on your own. Just ask Cheney.

You can't tell the difference between males and females? That's just sad. There aren't many gay or straight people with that problem.

Have you sought help?
