"Change the Church!" THAT is the chant of HUNDREDS of Young People walking out from their classes & demonstrating & sitting-in in lunchrooms and gyms - in SEVERAL Catholic High Schools in the Seattle area, after a Gay married teacher was fired. REVOLUTION

====================

 I am in a position, living nearby as I am, to give a bit of background on all this. PLEASE PASS THIS ON - this is BIG INTERNATIONAL NEWS. Support for the Catholic Students is coming in from every country in the world, from both their own ages and their elders. This is an HISTORIC WATERSHED for the "Holy" Roman Catholic Church!

BMutiny TheCorporationsAreEvil [And the Roman Catholic Church IS a Corporation.]


As someone pointed out, if this had been a CATHOLIC PRIEST who had actually MOLESTED, RAPED, COERCED OR HURT A CHILD, that person would have simply been quietly moved to another parish!
This is all about "being Gay sets a Bad Example for the kids".


Actually, the school {says it} had the legal right to fire the teacher - he, like all employees, had to sign a Contract saying they would "observe Catholic doctrine". HOWEVER, this bit of coercion is NOT enforced in Catholic schools with regard to DIVORCED AND RE-MARRIED employees! THAT is "against Catholic doctrine" as well!!! So, the legal question is raised, if the school DID fire the teacher, was he SINGLED OUT BECAUSE HE WAS GAY.... while the same school administration let Heteros get away with "not observing Catholic doctrine" in their personal relationships! Even for a Private Institution, in the State of Washington that apparently would not be legal!
So the school has to be UTTER HYPOCRITES in telling the Press that the teacher "left voluntarily", after "coming to an understanding" - while they told the PARENTS that the teacher had been FIRED! Also, at that little conference where "an understanding was reached" {HAH!}, the school's Catholic LAWYER was present.... suuuuure!
The teacher had been at the school for a year and a half, during which time apparently he was OUTSTANDING with the kids, they all say! And, the teacher NEVER mentioned being Gay... his private life was his private life. Which is fine.
Apparently, the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" mentality is alive & well in Catholic schools. About FIFTEEN of them, before this, have fired Gay teachers AFTER THEY GOT MARRIED. This teacher/vice principal got married in June - apparently some other teachers got wind about it just NOW, and told the Administration - tattled, it seems. AFTER it "got out", the school then HAD to fire him like the others....
But, this IS SEATTLE.... Bastion of Liberalism!
WHO WOULDA GUESSED THIS WOULD HAPPEN.....!!!!!!!!!
The kids are NOT AFRAID AND NOT SUBSERVIENT....
And the KIDS are LEADING BY MORAL EXAMPLE..... I love that!!!
