A recent article reports: ”The firing of a gay physical-education teacher from a Columbus Catholic high school would be a violation of a city ordinance if a complaint were filed and investigators determined the dismissal was based on her sexual orientation. Carla Hale of Powell, who worked at Bishop Watterson High School in Clintonville for 19 years, said she was fired in March after an anonymous parent complained that an obituary for Hale’s mother listed the name of Hale’s female domestic partner.”
Notice that even though this is a Catholic school and the fact that the teacher is a lesbian is obviously a violation of the school’s religious convictions, that the school may still be cited for a violation by the state. Notice also that the teacher obviously hid her sexual orientation from the school, obviously realizing it was in contradiction of the school’s religious convictions – which could easily be called lying or false representation – and yet the school is said to be the one in the wrong. This is the logical end of “non-discrimination” bills. It strips the religious rights of people, organizations, and even schools and forces them to violate their faith.
