Y’know, back before education became a jobs program for liberals, you didn’t hear about all these problems with “teachers”.

Funny how everything liberals touch turns to trash, isn’t it?

You know, it’s a shame that the work “partner” has now been turned into dirt meaning a sodomite’s partner. Disgusting. It used to mean a close friend . . . but now it’s a filthy term . . . thank you sodomites!

I think the school should kick-out of the school any family that signed the petition to keep this teacher. Why attend a Catholic School when you do not support the teachings of the Catholic Church.

I wish they’d just use ‘homosexual lover’. The words ‘queer’, ‘gay’ & ‘partner’ now have had their original definitions completely twisted over the years...

My (straight) son attended Bishop Watterson High School and remembers her fondly.

He said there were no “gay vibes” towards anyone and was a kind, respectful gym teacher.

And why is some a-hole reading an obit and filing a complaint?

While most Freepers would disagree, this is a bad story for the Catholic school. Particularly since I remember some of the nasty teachers at Watterson. Hale was one of the nice ones.

The fact that she was so discreet the only way she was outed was by an obscure reference in obituary. Then fired?. I’m not comfortable with churches, employers or government peeping into people’s private life. Once they start you could be next.

No, we're living in a world where it is ADVERTISED that we have lesbian PE teachers, and we are forced to "admire" their "courage", instead of not knowing or caring, whether or not the PE teacher is lesbian or not.

The Catholic Church also teaches that sex outside of marriage is wrong and that remarriage after divorce is wrong.

Will they fire anyone who doesn’t restrict their sex life to their live long spouse?

“My (straight) son attended Bishop Watterson High School and remembers her fondly.”

That’s very touching, but the fact remains that homosexuality is an abomination to God. She has no place in a Catholic school I’m afraid.

I think the church is trying to walk a rather silly tightrope.

Either allow gays or don’t. In this case, since it’s a church, it would be don’t.

Don’t have a policy that pretends.
Don’t have a policy that looks the other way as long as there isn’t any mention of the person being gay.
Don’t say “You can work here, as long as we don’t know you’re gay.” Etc.

Those policies just create these situations where eventually you have to deal with something that you should have dealt with long ago.

“The Catholic Church also teaches that sex outside of marriage is wrong and that remarriage after divorce is wrong.”

“Will they fire anyone who doesn’t restrict their sex life to their live long spouse?”

I have full confidence that the Roman Catholic Diocese of Columbus would fire any teacher that it found had been divorced.

All one would have to do is to search public records to find any current teacher that has been divorced and forward that information to the Diocese.

The divorced teacher would be fired and no one would object.

If she had a "partner" she not only wasn't struggling against her sin but almost certainly didn't even acknowledge it as a sin.

I don't know the answer to that. I did apply for a job as a teacher at a Catholic School some time back. I was told that I did not have to be a Catholic, but that I had to adhere to Catholic principles.

I asked if that meant they would not hire someone with a live-in girlfriend. I was told that they would not, and that if they found a teacher was living in sin that the teacher would be fired.

Didn't bother me any, since I had been married for nearly 20 years by then, but that seems to answer part of your question. If you send up a skyrocket saying “I am having sex outside marriage” through a live-in relationship will get you fired.

After you publish it in the news paper it really isn’t private anymore.

I am guessing the school suspected that she was a practicing lesbian prior to the obit but after the obit and complaint from a parent they could no longer pretend that they did not know.

I agree. Catholic school should have let it slide and told her not to mention her partner again. I’m sure it was known she is gay/lesbian/what have you. But it’s the Catholic Church’s business not mine. They might get sued despite everything

We have a lot more pressing issues at the moment than to concern ourselves with issues such as this. Let us stay focused on the criminals who currently control our government and their allies who seek to destroy us and let us not become distracted with these side issues.

Make sense?

But in all fairness it's not like she advertised it. She didn't flaunt it, advocate it, or make it a public part of her life until she included it in an obituary. It's not like she was "in your face" about her sexual orientation.
