Firing A Teacher For Getting Married

Another day, another Catholic school fires a beloved teacher because he married another man. This time, the school’s students erupt in protest and moral outrage. One wonders how much longer Catholic archdioceses can keep doing this, without severe blowback from an entire generation. And let’s be clear here. The school and the archdiocese were fine with the teacher’s sexual orientation as long as he didn’t actually commit to another person for life. What they’re punishing is not gayness; what they’re punishing is love and responsibility.
