That just happened to a teacher at a nearby private Catholic school. Most of the alumni is pulling their funding from the school because of it. I expect the school to be unoperational soon

This, I have a problem with.

Gay people are fine, but they should respect the school's belief system.

If I got fired from a jewish school for eating a ******* of bacon in class, no one would question it.

"We shouldn't speak out against intolerance and hate if it is only done in private groups."

How about no....
#67 to #57 - bann ONLINE (12/25/2013) [-]
You're free to preach hate so long as you don't force it on others. In this case he was on the payroll of those who shared the belief, they've every right to terminate him if they please. I'm 100% in support of gay marriage and believe that everyone has the right to be open about their sexuality, but that doesn't mean that doesn't mean I believe that an established group should have to change their beliefs because of mine.

No it's still ignorant. It's not like he was doing openly homosexual things in school. He was fired for mentioning in an email that he would be a little late from school because he was getting his marriage licence...and it happened to be for two men.
User avatar #50 to #49 - thewowpimp ONLINE (12/25/2013) [-]
Oh, figured it was like the post and he announced it.

Never mind then, but the school is still allowed to have a morality clause in it's contracts.

Actually, wow pimp...they might...

although I respect his sexuality
he probably should of just never applied.

I obviously don't agree with discrimination and believe that he should be employed fairly if he responsibly fulfills the duties of his profession, but I think you might be mistaken. Even with our modern times being more liberal and Pope Francis' stance against judging homosexuals, there is still a significant margin of protest against legitimizing gay marriage. I think that a lot of people would be willing to donate to them, or even enroll their children their; solely to support their conservative stance. Also, they would likely use the position that since they are a private institution that does not operate on government funding, they do not have to abide by certain civil laws which conflict with their beliefs that they both pay and make students pay tuition in order to have the right to practice.
User avatar #211 to #64 - nigeltheoutlaw (12/25/2013) [-]
They have no obligation to follow the government's anti-discrimination laws since they are a private school, but they should be prepared for the consequences from their donors and students for their stance.

That's the exact same reason that separate but equal and Jim Crow laws were allowed to exist until the fifties.
#350 to #64 - anon (12/25/2013) [-]
Prof lurk...I hear what you are saying, as a privately funded organization, they should have more leeway...but think on this...if they just found out he was half black and they did this....is it right? Discrimination is discrimination...he was hired for his skills and fired for something unrelated to his work...that is discrimination in any sense of the word. I'd pull my funding, though others may not...
This kind of thing just polarizes the nation more, though...it's a shame.

He can sue the school for millions
User avatar #86 to #23 - greenstrongworld (12/25/2013) [-]
And then ruin the experience for thousands of students? He'd be a pretty bad principle imo.

Lawsuits like that don't happen in many(if any) other countries then the US. And correct me if I'm wrong but aren't there only three states in the US where same sex marriage is legal? So the chances of this post taking place there aren't very high.
#300 to #112 - anon (12/25/2013) [-]
It's a little bit more like 17 states. With another state ( Illinois ) making it legal June of 2014.

It was originally a vice principle, and it was, to be exact, over his marriage to another man.
One second, I'll go find the original source.

why does anyone care if people are ******* straight or gay?

seriously, unless he's marrying a black man, what's the ******* issue?

My whole school sat in the cafeteria recently as well. But here in southern Congo that only happens when the town militia has rolled in to take our food supplies and fresh water, and we have to wait for hours in fear of whether they will be pleased or not with what they take, but my friend, the principal of our small school, he's a very smart man, and knows how to keep us all calm, and is all of our friends, for he knows the fear we feel hobbled together, for he was once forced into their militia, but his kind heart led him out and he had escaped their iron fist, to come and be a principal to our school, and lead the children, my peers, to a brighter future where we will no longer gather in the cafeteria in fear, but gather for feasts and celebrations.

But I am very grateful to be here and able to access the funny sites on the internet with our schools laptops, and it is nice to see that other places in the world, people can gather in their cafeterias for standing up for something, side by side with one another, and for a man in a respectable position, too, I might add.

Sooo, I didn't expect this to end up here... But I actually go to this school, and basically, for all the other people in the comments, what happened was that the head of the school was fine with him being gay and not talking about it (don't ask don't tell essentially) however as soon as she was officially told that he had gotten married, she had to act because on the second page of every teachers contract it says, (Paraphrased obviously) "Teacher will uphold catholic social teaching in all aspects of their life." Because obviously gay marriage goes against the church's current teachings, the president of the school had to thus go to the Seattle archdiocese and they told her that he had to be fired. Now obviously that is the condensed and overly simplified version of what happened, however that is pretty much it.
User avatar #123 to #62 - scowler (12/25/2013) [-]
Seattle? What's it like there?
#75 to #62 - dontknowmeatall (12/25/2013) [-]
Well, if he signed the contract, even though it's unfair, they have all the right to fire him. He broke his part of the deal.
#79 to #75 - mrclass (12/25/2013) [-]
oh yes, I agree that the school had every legal right to fire him, however my opposition to the decision is based only on the fact that the administration doesn't necessarily enforce all catholic teaching, and was forced to essentially make an example of our vice principal.
#80 to #79 - dontknowmeatall (12/25/2013) [-]
Then a good strategy would be research for the dirty secrets of administration and make them public. Doesn't even have to be anything severe, just any anti-Chatolic behaviour. They either they bring him back or fire everyone. And if they don't do either then the riot can start.
User avatar #126 to #80 - scowler (12/25/2013) [-]
If stuff like that worked, I doubt we'd still have Gun Grabbers and other Anti-Constitutionalists.

Just an honest analogy.
#242 - samoaspider (12/25/2013) [-]
I would probably be one of those guys who just would go to cafeteria not to protest, but just to skip class, because everyone else are doing so. Probably even would go home

Washington state has laws in place anti-discrimination laws in place for LGBT people, so he could sue them because the only reason he was fired was because he was gay and wanted to get married. It doesn't matter what the school things of his marriage.

But most importantly, whenever a private, catholic school is sued, they usually cave to demands and either pay out or reverse their decision, because lawyers cost money and if they loose the pay out will be huge. And if there is one thing Catholic schools don't have, it's money.

I went to one, they never have any money.

Maybe he was happy that he was getting married and wanted to share it with his students.
#172 to #164 - snorp (12/25/2013) [-]
Also maybe he'll take on his spouse's name in which case there'll be no way around anouncing it.

I have mixed feelings about this. On one side, he should have just kept his damn mouth shut, but on the other, they could have let him just keep his job. Have some Cthulhu summoning.

straight principals can announce they are getting married and don't get fired....

If this is the same situation, and it sounds like it, then who ******* cares? He knew he couldn't and did anyway. It was a CATHOLIC SCHOOL, YOU DOPES.

Standing by your word, not backing down, and doing what you want is badass.

Phil Robertson and this Principal are both ******* legit for doing and saying whatever the **** they want and dealing with the consequences. End of story. No social justice ******** .

Pic related, media bias out the hole here.

That's cool and all, but did he really have to announce this to the school? School staff doesn't typically announce weddings.

Who is to say he got fired for being gay? I'd say it was more likely due to the fact that he announced his personal life to the entire school.
User avatar #405 to #384 - SuperHyperCrazy (12/25/2013) [-]
But would he get fired for telling everyone he was going to marry his girlfriend?
#417 to #405 - lininop (12/25/2013) [-]
It's irrelevant in his line of work.
User avatar #432 to #417 - SuperHyperCrazy (12/26/2013) [-]
He still would most likely not get fired.
Imagine if your high school principal said on the loudspeaker that he was getting married to his girlfriend for the past 4 years. People would either be happy or not give a **** , right? I seriously doubt someone would say "Hey, that's horribly inappropriate. I'm going to report him."
#419 to #384 - urbemarmis (12/25/2013) [-]
i could honestly see that happening. "Mr. Principal youre being fired for breaking the no tolerance policy for sexually harassing a male teacher. you can either quit in lieu of being terminated or you can be fired" when he goes to make a speech telling about how hes quitting he says "im gay and getting married to my male partner" and when he gets fired he tries to act like it was cuz he was gay
