    Perhaps both are wrong.

    Re: Woman fired for having sex

    I've not made it through all 57 pages but I tripped across this hyocritical ****...

    But James said she was humiliated after being pulled into her supervisor's office last fall, where she was asked if she was pregnant and then was let go. After James lost her job, she claims the school offered a position to her now-husband, even though they were aware he'd had sex before getting married, too.

    link...

    It's only offensive if a woman has premarital sex. What nonsense.

    No, we don't have a state religion, but our country was originally founded between sections of the country that had French origins, almost totally Catholic, and English origins, almost totally Protestant. The terms of our original constitution contained provisions that required each to fund education in both public and "separate" schools - separate being Catholic in the English provinces and Protestant in the French province. Over the 150 years of our country, these "constitutional" rights to separate, government funded education have be eroding except in my province, Ontario, where the government in the 80's extended additional funding to Catholic schools making them the equivalent of public schools - this party was defeated in the next election, but the funding has remained. Over 30% of the province is Catholic and although about 50% of the province wants to get rid of government funding for Catholic schools, no political party will move in that direction because of the significant disruption to the systems, because the Catholic schools are considered by many superior, and because it would likely be political suicide. Other provinces have moved away from the two systems, but not all. In fact, in Ontario, one political party ran on a platform of funding all forms of religious schools and although they started out as the party in the lead, they ended up being badly defeated in the election. Religious education and elections definitely don't mix.

    As an aside, the UN has criticized Canada's education system for funding one set of religious schools but not all. I would be in favor of funding education for all children in all schools who gain accreditation from the government regardless of their faith background.

    The only thing on that list that is your own decision is religion, which is not a constitutionally protected right in the work place. The only laws that protect religion in the work place are these same discrimination laws.

    Whether anyone here agrees whether or not all of these things should be things companies can't discriminate on, they are regardless. Seeing as how they're there, why would we not want to cover marital status, or the most natural and important thing to human life: procreation?
    But in American, you, yourself, can sign away any right you have which is what she did. The HOA cases that were taken on by the ACLU and lost are a prime example. If the HOA says you can't fly an American flag and you sign on the line agreeing to it, then you have signed away that part of your freedom of expression. She signed away her right to have sex outside of marriage when she accepted the job and signed agreement with the policy.

Either way, I would strongly encourage them to drop this from future hiring contracts or they will find themselves in trouble sooner or later.

    For what it's worth, I think the school will win its case against this woman. I think it's a stretch for her to say she was fired for being pregnant. She was fired for having pre-marital sex, which, to my understanding, isn't illegal.
    Well, if Chic-fil-a is any indication, the school isn't going to suffer any. I was in the one in Nashville the other day and I've never seen a place so crowded with young families.

    That doesn't matter. In the US there are discrimination laws. Nobody can sign a contract with an employer giving away their right to be homosexual, christian, black, pregnant, or anything else on that list. This is about what an employer can reasonably ask of an employee.

    You most certainly can.

    I agree with that, but don't think the Wiccans, Muslims, Christians, or anyone else should be allowed to use tax dollars to teach their religious dogmas. Do you?
