    As if morality ever stopped religious people from doing anything. Crusades, hundreds of thousands of child molestation cases, thousands of child molesters in the HCC clergy and suicide bombers in Islam are just a small list of the things which prove that it really wouldn't be that hard for the religious to engage in the oh-so serious act of procreation. For that matter, it wouldn't be "harder".

    Pretty interesting stuff from a corporation that tolerates child molestation and protects those who engage in it. The Catholic Church gave up any right to be a moral authority on anything a long time ago.

    Last paragraph of the OP article;
    "Herx's lawsuit, filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Fort Wayne, alleges the diocese violated the Civil Rights Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act by discriminating against Herx based on gender and on infertility, which is considered a disability. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission upheld Herx's complaint in January."

    Should separation of church and state mean that religious organisations are be free to break the law? Why would that apply to employment discrimination laws and not all the others? Can't they just say "We're religious. This court doesn't apply to us at all." and walk out?

    My entire family is Catholic. My oldest sister was Dominican.

    However, I loathe organized religion. Especially the Catholic Church and all its blatant hypocrisy. And I'm certainly not a fan of Bible thumpers. I have no problem with those who believe and mind their own business.

    It's when **** like this happens that I get my ass in the air.

    This should make you happy that it's harder for them to procreate than you.

    Yeah, but these things are starting to get a bit out of hand. The background digging and finding random things you're doing not at work and then facing repercussions for them at work, etc. I'm starting to think that there are proper restrictions to be placed. Like this is something that I feel is a bit too much an infringement of privacy. Now it's not that I would say there are total restrictions, and certainly private organizations get a bit more freedom in firing. Such as if this teacher said "there's no god" to her students; sure she can be fired for that. But I don't know...I think on some level we're allowing too much nitpicking and people should just shut up and get back to work.

    You know if you change "Religious people" to say "hispanics", that might constitute hate speech.


    Then again if you want to go back to the crusades, We only have to go back to WWII where we see the godless commies, killed what 100 million?

    You should try to stop making **** up. There was nothing taken out of context there.

    You claimed I hate religious people. That's a lie. And then you made it worse with your additional asinine comment. No shock there.

    You've said some pretty nasty things about religion, which are made up of..... "religious people". I'm sorry if I misread you, but you seem quite bitter, and quick to insult people simply based on who they worship.
