Yes, they should be allowed to demand a traditional Christian moral code from all teachers
They should be allowed if they prove they apply the same standards to all teachers
They should be allowed, but that doesn't make it right
They are discriminating against women, since fornication is more obvious with them
If the school board members can prove they never fornicated, then they stand on solid ground
Christian schools should not be allowed to discriminate on moral grounds
Christians are the biggest bunch of hypocrites on the face of the Earth!

Federal Laws Prohibiting Job Discrimination Questions And Answers
Title VII's broad prohibitions against sex discrimination specifically cover:
Sexual Harassment - This includes practices ranging from direct requests for sexual favors to workplace conditions that create a hostile environment for persons of either gender, including same sex harassment. (The "hostile environment" standard also applies to harassment on the bases of race, color, national origin, religion, age, and disability.)
Pregnancy Based Discrimination - Pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions must be treated in the same way as other temporary illnesses or conditions.

She was not fired for being pregnant. She was fired for premarital sex which according to the school is a breach of the moral contract she was shown and agreed to upon hiring.
She surrendered the information freely as well, so no invasion or privacy either.
As I said the Florida law does not in any way disagree with the Federal laws.

I agree with Blackdog, it's not a violation of federal law. She was fired for her violation of the moral code that the school is entitled to make. She was fired for premarital sex only. It's not like they fired her instead of giving her maternity leave, which would be pregnancy-based discrimination. If the school is private and the employee was fully aware of the moral code, then she couldn't have engaged in the prohibited behavior and at the same time expected the school to betray their moral code, which she had knowledge of.
I don't agree with it certainly, but they had a legal right to fire her.

Didn't read the whole thing, so sorry if this is redundant.
The owners of that school are almost certainly hypocrites, holier-than-thou types. I would bet money they had premarital sex just like the vast majority of Americans do. Hypocritical, judgmental people without Christian forgiveness. This is not a quality lesson they teach.
