    I believe that's why the school said they fired her for premarital sex, not for being pregnant. I believe that's why the woman's lawyer emphasized that as well. I think for her to win her case, she would have to show that she was fired for being pregnant, and not for having premarital sex.

    Religions deserve just enough exemption to fulfill their religious purpose. Certainly a religious group should be allowed to impose special requirements on its leadership and minsiters etc, but if its a large operation employing dozens or more people, such as hospital, it should not be allowed to discriminate with most positions any more than other businesses or organizations can.

    RapidAlpaca is correct that anti-discrimination laws usually trump contracts in court. That is why racist neighborhood covenants are no longer enforceable.
    Where is the discrimination here? Religions are different from the rest of society in that they may follow different rules and beliefs. We are free to either join with those beliefs or ignore them. That's our freedom of choice and they must respect it, just as we must respect their rights and beliefs.None should force their belief on others without their consent.

    Certainly human rights cannot be ignored but we must also keep in mind that the idea of human rights arose from Christian principles.

    The First Amendment says nothing about state supported schools, only that the State cannot establish a religion. I don't know what religion this school follows but it is generally accepted that Christianity is a philosophy and various religions grew from this philosophy.

    Don't get 'rant radio' here, Just googled and read the stats.

    It seems that lawyers are always fighting for more rights and freedoms while we wind up having fewer and fewer of them.

    Why not let the Christian school alone, let a contract be honored, and allow people get on with their lives.

    Easy and forgiving targets is more likely.

    Check 'em out again, and remember to compare middle class to middle class. We're not doing poorly except in poor neighborhoods, and that has more to do with family life than it does with the schools.
