What's the surprise? This is everything the RCC opposes--love, marriage, and civil rights.

This guy is openly gay and does not teach theology courses. There is no problem here except the school's own prejudice.

"Marriage" certainly is the thorn that provokes the RCC into action. In Massachusetts, Catholic Charities had quietly placed children into gay households for years. Then, when marriage equality hit Massachusetts, the Vatican was so apoplectic that it decided to close down all adoption services, just to teach those uppity gays a lesson.

Note that this was not a choice was imposed on Diocese of Massachusetts from outside. When the edict about placing children with gays came down, there was a mass resignation from the board of Catholic Charities.

In this California story as in Massachusetts, what was once tolerated became intolerable because of marriage.

That's my old High School! Too funny.

Half the nuns were gay, and the other half were tiny wizened little things that would smack you in the halls for "running", when you walked by them faster than their tiny little legs could carry them.

They fired a science teacher when I was there for getting a little too friendly with the girls.

It's nickname was "the little red whorehouse on the hill" because so many "troubled" girls ended up there - sent by worried Catholic parents.

Don't bother-they don't get federal money.

Federal money likely DID subsidize your education, however. Can I sue for return of my share, since you skipped civics the day they went over "contracts"?

I'm certain that the teacher signed a contract with the school and was found in breach.

If it took them 17 years to "find out" he was gay - when all the students knew it - there wasn't much of a "breach", was there?

Why is shacking up okay, but the man gets fired for marriage? Insane stuff.

Good point. If the Pope is gay, he should be removed too.
