    I don't like double standards either. I wasn't following the story about the fired teacher but I do recall a while back an unmarried teacher was dismissed from her job for being preggers. How on earth can they look at themselves in the mirror and fire an expectant mom who needs the income and health insurance? If its that big of a problem, reassign her to an office job. Where is the love?
    When you take a job like that, catholic school, you know they frown on un wed mothers, abortions, gay marriage. You know this up front.
    No one should be surprised that they are fired for breaking a code of conduct that has everything to do with thier job.

    No, you very clearly addressed a specific poster.

    Just look through the threads. You will see right wingers gleefully cheer the homo got fired or the pregnant woman got fired. Then in this thread they have the opposite opinion.
    Well, I suggest two things if you don't want to come off as a dumb-ass 1) address those people directly 2) realize it doesn't speak to the logic of their position. As of right now, you seem to be doing neither. And worst of all, holding random people accountable for such

    That is duplicitous.
    Who the **** cares?

    So the right is happy when women and gays lose their job, but so upset about Dean.
    you know those idiots constantly howling about the left, and what the left does? You know how most normal people read those posts and think the person is an asshole and dumb-ass?

    there's a lesson for you there

    I get the fact they want the teachers to be examples to the kids they teach. I'm just saying there should be a provision whereby a REPENTANT, expectant mom isn't kicked out to fend for herself at one of the most vulnerable times in her life. Nobody on earth today is perfect. What if she got pregnant due to no fault of her own? A lot of ladies are so traumatized they never share the full story. The Catholic Church is a big organization and I'm sure they could find something else away from impressionable younger girls for her to do for a few years. I can only assume they think they're doing the right thing but I don't get it.
    Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011

    No one should be surprised when a tv personality is fired for using racist language.

    lol, what a hilarious ****ing lie. You have been quoting his posts as you make this argument, attributing such positions to him. But now, once your card got pulled, you were never referencing him?

    LOL~!!!

    I quote his posts because they hit the points I want to make. I didnt say you the poster. I was using generic language.

    The instances are very similar.

    Essentially the only thing she admitted to was using it some time long ago. Like I said, it's hard to feel sympathy for her, but it's hard to compare this to something that occurred in a current context, or not see it as a bit reactive

    I already address why they were not, but you simply ignored those posts. Also, it was clear your posts were directed towards him. You can lie aboiut it now, and backtrack. but ...

    I do not argue to use racial slurs. I simply point out that we should all have the same opportunity to use language as we see fit.

    You, on the other hand, argue that black people alone should be able to use the word "nigga" because you are one.
