    unconscionability of a contract that arises from the terms of the contract and esp. from terms that are found to be one-sided, unjust, or overly harsh


    I would say a contract that forbids legal sexual contact is unjust and overly harsh to say the least..... but that is why I am asking. There are principles in contract law that protects the "weak" party.. in this case the woman against abuses of the "strong" party... you cant sign over your life for example and so on.

    It is an interesting case to say the least.. and I hope it goes through the court system to get a clarification.

    And yet it's always been the case. Morals clauses in employment contracts, AFAIK, have been with us since the beginning of our country. So it's a scary you've been living with your entire life.

    Absolutely. Anyone dumb enough to sign that contract deserves whatever happens to them, IMO.

    Nope. That's not the means test. Do other religious employers have these same morals clauses - that woud be the means test.

    Not quite accurate. He did indeed shun and call for the shunning of those who were unrepentant sinners (the moneychangers at the temple for example).

    Re: Woman fired for having sex

    It seems to me like the prevailing attitude in the country regarding contracts has evolved into just a temporary document that you sign for immediate gratification with no intention of fulfilling. This ranges from those taking an oath to uphold the laws of the land with no intention of doing so, through people who purchase homes way beyond their means and then whine when they cannot pay for them. Sandra Fluck was praised by the dem congress in standing up against Georgetown U a Catholic university which gave Ms. Fluck a very desirable scholarship, and then demanding that they give her $3000/year in contraceptives. And this, a clear case of a violation of a contract, and being presented as a case of being dismissed for having sex and getting pregnant. Not so, she could have all the sex she wanted, just not working for a fundamental church organization.

    Contracts are agreements to do certain things in exchange for certain other things. They do mean something.

    It goes:
    Admission of sin
    Repentence
    Ask for forgiveness

    and that's your interpretation. To someone else, it might be different.

    Don't need a clause for that. If you're that silly to make such a claim, you have to back it up - then and now.

    She can just say: "When I was a little girl, I had a bicycle injury".
