    Honestly, I think they actually believe all teachers are like Miss Honey. So, they're just ignorant.

    It is a private religious institution and does have a right to to have moral conduct and belief requirements. That being said, some thought should have been made in making up the clause so that the institution could retain more members. Now, of course, it is likely that, that College will have to suspend services until they can replace the bulk of those who resigned

    The Constitution says that employers can dictate what their workers do in the privacy of their own bedrooms on the weekends?

    maybe the Constitution of Iran, or Saudi Arabia.

    While it is completely within their right to do this, it is also within the rights of their staff to leave and their students to find other schools. I know this is going to come out as mean, but I honestly hope this hurts them enough that they either have to change their policies back or close. It would suck for those students who really want to learn there, but it is likely that they would get a better education somewhere more tolerant anyway.

    The world is changing to a more tolerant place, particularly of homosexuality and premarital sex. Those unwilling to change with it or worse, take steps back to being more intolerance, are likely to find themselves left behind.

    I see you know as much about constitutional law as you do everything else. Feel free to work somewhere else, though, if you feel their draconian rules don't match your hedonistic lifestyle.

    Yes they have the right to discriminate. It's stupid to do so. It's even more stupid to do so after the fact. You're getting rid of people who have been loyal to your institution and integral to its operation. If they don't fold, it will be shocking. Finding qualified candidates to fill the positions before next term is going to be a rush. They'll have to contract and in private education, that's a death knell.

    Im not actually sure that they are within their rights to do this. As far as I know you cannot fire people for doing legal activities on their off time.

    They are as soon as they sign the dotted line. Don't like it, don't sign.

    Depends on what state you're in.
