    something like that, I can understand. Kinda like when someone in the "party of family values" is caught in bed with a person of the same sex or having an affair.
    again, hypocrisy.

    I can see the desire for 'morality' clauses but like in the dis-cuss-ions on the BoR they are not without limit.

    Given the current trend to separate the secular side of religious organizations there maybe a wind of change here.

    I can see kicking a nun out of an order for fornication. A priest for molesting children, but like in the healthcare area, employees different. These workers should be treated like other secular employees, unless this young lady is a Church official I see thin ice for the Church to defend itself in court. (I recall a young lady being fired for cohabitation and the Chruch argued because she occasionally lead prayers so she was a 'preacher', even though ALL protestant sects allow for lay people to lead prayers)

    This might be an interesting case to put before judges.
    So, as an example, you would believe it to be ok if a single female teacher in a Catholic school became pregnant? And why would the Church be on "thin ice" here when she clearly breached a contract she entered into voluntarily? Do you believe contract law can't be applied when a Church is involved or just when you find the terms of the contract not to your liking?

    It's not a great situation.

    It's not really a good policy, IMO.

    But ultimately, if you don't want to abide by the terms of a contract, you shouldn't sign it. And she did. And then she didn't abide by the rules in that contract. Breaking your word and violating a contract can have consequences.

    What are you going to do about it? I know that damn 1st Amendment is a real pain in the ass, but what are you going to do about it?

    It wasn't mentioned as a factor in the Christian school.

    I believe contract law applies across the board. Do secular schools have contracts where teachers can be fired for having sex out of wedlock? Can a secular school fire a teacher for cohabitating.

    THAT is my means test, if the Church wishes to engage in secular enterprizes, hospitals, general education schools they conform with secular world.

    What amazes me is the idea ANY Church, much less a Catholic one fails the Jesus test. Jesus didn't cast out the sinner, the prositute, the leper.

    Her lawyer is about as scummy as they get, so no need to say anything further. She signed, and now she must face the consequences of her actions. Wait, that's how our society universally did things back years ago; now, however, apparantley no one should have to face consequences for their actions.
