    I don't find your argument compelling.


    If she knew they would dismiss her from her job for this infraction, then she is dumber than we've all thought.

    I don't find the "poor lady was fired because she broke the rules", that you seem to have bought into, as compelling either.

    It pays to do a little research, if you're taking a job with a religious organization. You might find out you can't stand any of their beliefs or rules.

    Wow. I hope she owns their asses on this. Unconscionable. As the father of two test tube babies, this pisses me off to no end.






    If you don't wish to risk being fired for doing something the Catholic Church frowns on, don't choose to employ yourself with the Catholic Church.




    I have no sympathy. I live in a "right to work" state and last year almost got fired for missing 4 days due to an emergency appendectomy surgery without which I would have died.

    Well, I do agree that anybody who would work for the Catholic church under any circumstances is asking for trouble - especially if they have young sons.

    If she's a Catholic then she went into the school knowing their standing on the issue. .
    You can't say that with a straight face.

    I was raised Catholic, attended Catholic school and have two test tube babies.

    I didn't know of it.

    How ironic? You can molest children and remain a Catholic and keep getting paid too.

    Too bad for her that she had the gall to want to have children instead of raping some

    If I was going to work for a privatge Catholic school, even I would know their basic tenets. It's not like the church hasn't been around for hundreds of years.
    The catholic church changes their rules like the shuffle priests. And this isn't a "law". It's an arbitrary rule.

    So you agree that it is a rule. Good that we've got that out of the way.

    Now my next question is this. If you break the rules where you work, do you get away with it, or are you admonished for it? If you continually break the rules, are you terminated?

    I don't know why this is so hard to grasp. She broke the rules repeatedly in her place of employment. Her contract is not renewed. The end.

    Leave all the emotion out of it, people. Stop blabbering about how much you hate the Catholic Church. Stop blabbering about "oh poor thing just wants a baby." Take all the emotion out of it and look at it like it really is - a woman is continually breaking the rules at work, and as a result, doesn't get her contract renewed.

    Really? What rights were violated? Check her ethics clause and get back to me.

    The diocese said that teachers, even those such as Herx who aren't Catholic, are required by their contracts to abide by Catholic tenets and "serve as moral exemplars."
