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!
They should be allowed to fire her...but not until after they've paid for her maternity leave. Otherwise it's no different than concocting some other bull**** excuse to fire an employee when they've requested maternity leave. In most states it is illegal to drum up some pretext to fire an employee who requests leave to which they are entitled.

Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.

What does her employment contract state?
It is unreasonable (in most cases) for an employer to dictate all of your behavior, especially off hours time. However, if the contract does include a clause about behavior reflecting upon the school, then that's another story.

The study, which used statistics from the 1982, 1988, 1995 and 2002 National Survey of Family Growth, asked about 40,000 people ages 15-44 about their sexual behavior and traced the trends in premarital sex back to the 1950s.
Of those interviewed in 2002, 95% reported they had had premarital sex; 93% said they did so by age 30. Among women born in the 1940s, nearly nine in 10 did.
Most Americans have had premarital sex, study finds - USATODAY.com
Do not write in this space!
So my point stands and your argument is completely out of the realm of reality.

As I understand it, she was not fired because of her pregnancy.
If that is your contention, please prove to me that she was, as I have not seen anything that indicates such.
Thus, please prove your statements.
Additionally, donít you think her lawyer would have mentioned it if such a legal violation had occurred?

As to the rest, I disagree. I think that we just have to wait and see what the outcome is, since they might just tack on premarital sex to the list of things
that are illegal to discriminate against.
