    The article doesn’t mention whether or not the school gets taxpayer vouchers or any federal, state or local tax monies. If they don’t, they are well within their rights as a private organization. If they do, then they violated the basic concept of separation of church and state and should be held to the same standards as any government school. This is the real issue, not whether or not someone was sacked for their political views. I would suggest that the author get more information before publishing any more on this story.

      From wikipedia: It is chartered by the state of Ohio and accredited by North Central Association of Schools. Urban in its environment, it is supervised by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and administered and staffed by lay and religious, primarily the Society of Mary and the Sisters of Charity. Enrollment is around 429 students

  3. I don’t get the fact that he still subscribes to this evil and inhuman religion, surely this should be proof that ‘the church’ is nothing but corrupt and wholly evil?

    And the Vatican is scared to excommunicate people like him for fear of a backlash. It also threatened catholic politicians supporting equal marriage but hasn’t had the guts to do anything about it. I wish they would because it would cause a huge division in the roman cult, possibly a schism.

    Well done, Mike Moroski!

  5. Land of the free at it again. Shameful. If you think this is bad, just imagine how gays in the US/Ohio must feel. Good for him for making a stand.

  6. What a guy! His unfair dismissal will hopefully leave its mark on his students. They have experienced first hand the unreasonable bullying nature of their pernicious cult.

  7. Contrast this with the words of Diane Medley, Special Ed teacher at a school in Sullivan, Indiana

  8. Hey Mike !! nice one dude, you took a stand !!

  9. It’s fantastic that someone disinterested can take such a firm and principled stance – I’m sorry to hear he’s lost his job but very much hope he’ll be inundated with better offers as a result. His principles would make him an excellent principal, I’d say.
