    ''She broke the moral clause that was explained to her upon hiring. Her fault, not that of the school forgivness or not. ''
    Ah, in that case they should never forgive her. In fact, I wont either. I will get a mob together to hunt her down and burn her at the stake.

    ''It would have stayed private had she not told them.''
    She could have told them she is not pregnant. She just has a backetball up her shirt.

    Christianity belongs to a society which existed 2000 years ago, where its morals did in fact have a civilizing effect. These days, they are just clinging to a wish to drag society back 200 years.

    Yes, I think this is likely true. But, she can still have a healthy level of disgust for a school which insists on useless 'morals'. If reasonable moral standards are applied, it is the school who are being immoral.

    Is the school at least going to give her a good employment reference, or are they not Christian enough to be so nice about it?

    Ridicules fallacy argument that really has no bearing.

    Forgivness and accepting punishment are 2 different things.

    The baby was conceived 3 weeks before the wedding. No she did not have to say anything.

    Did you read the story?

    And this has what to do with the thread or the article?

    I mean this is nothing but anti-Christian rhetoric and opinion, not really anything to debate.

    She agreed to them upon hiring. Doh!

    I suppose you have evidence to back this up? I mean morals are pretty subjective, so I kind of doubt it.

    I suppose you are right then, because just about anything could be put under that umbrella and called moral, no matter how it affects human beings. But, in my opinion, morals should support human rights and not religions 'rights'.

    Then what would be the point of being a Christan school? To teach atheism?

    ''Ridicules fallacy argument that really has no bearing.''
    It was a joke. Sorry to confuse you. Christianity brings out my cynical side. I made a joke out of it, as an alternative to being scathing about the disgusting hyprocrites.
