Who the hell are these religious wackos that think they have the right to dictate who teaches their children in their private schools. Makes no difference if the teachers are gay, atheist or anti-Catholic Muslims.

""The reason given was that the marriage occurred and the school's position was that it violated church teachings," McGarrigle said."

Oh yes, church teachings of exclusion, hate, intolerance and fantasy. I was forced to go to catholic school. Don't waste your money on that crap people.

So we can fire teachers because they're catholic?

Considering the number of pedophiles in the catholic church, NO catholic should ever be allowed anywhere near children- especially their own.

Nope, turns out 100% of the pedophiles in the catholic church identify as straight.

That's why NO ONE should EVER let ANY catholic anywhere near your child- EVER.

You're as ignorant a (D)Sheople as there ever was. Self identity is always a farce in the mentally handicapped. Look at (D)Hitler who self identified as a Christian yet never did a Christian thing in his life. He was an occultist pure and simple.He needed the masses to believe he was a Christian for his ploys to work.Gays are mentally handicapped as well. Male pedophiles who molest boys are gay. Males that bugger males are gay regardless of whatever their own self image is. Don't be such a gullible parrot of the DNC. Try some critical thinking and reasoning drills instead of playing on your i-phone all day. Free your mind and your ass will follow.
Nope, not how it works, but thanks for playing.

This will be fine. Gays have thousands of public and non religious schools where they will be welcome.

So, gay Christians should not be educated at, or teach at a Christian school?

Not very Christian ...
