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!
Pregnancy discrimination involves treating a woman (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because of pregnancy, childbirth, or a medical condition related to pregnancy or childbirth.
Firing her is treating her unfavorably... is it not? It would have been legal if she had not been pregnant, she has a loophole since she is pregnant. The fact that she is pregnant is what makes it isllegal. It is right there in plain english. Agreed, if she was not pregnant, she would have no case.
She wasn't fired for being pregnant. She was fired for having pre-marital sex. That's like saying that because the police arrest a man who fits the description of a known murderer, he's being arrested for being a 6'3" White guy with a 1967 Oldsmobile. The pregnancy was used as evidence that she did something that went against their rules, not the grounds for dismissal.

Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
Bodhisattva, she was not fired for being pregnant or anything related to pregnancy. She was fired for breaking the schools moral code. A code she agreed to upon hiring.
None of the laws stated apply in any way.
Even if she had not been pregnant and admitted to premarital sex, she would have been fired.
