    So basically you are saying you will take her word for it because you disagree with a moral clause being used for hiring in a religious institution.

    Because the limited evidence so far does not say either party is correct.
    Exactly.

    Either or even both parties could be in the wrong...

    And it is impossible to tell at this point which of those three options is the case.

    Yes. Since they are private schools this would be acceptable in my opinion.

    Would it be acceptable for said school to teach the earth is 6000 yrs old because they are private?

    I'm not jumping to any conclusion. There is only one way the kids would find out and dispel her good image and thats if they were told. I do know one thing; she got pregnant and was just about to take medical leave. Now why anyone would even question the timing of her pregnancy under such circumstances as her being married is beyond me unless there was a search for a reason to do what they did.

    This whole BS about the moral code is just that...BS. The whole story stinks of it.

    The schools website has been suspended. And I suspect it is for non payment.

    Well you brought up about parents not paying. I guess this school can not pay their internet bill.

    That's a highly convoluted logic train.

    More likely, it's just down because many people have been visiting due to the news regarding said school.

    Or, they shut it down for the same reason.

    Edit: And, I didn't bring up parents not paying, I brought up them not enrolling their kids. And it was simply a suggestion as to a potential check on what you stated.

    No idea if it was actually the case or not.

    That said, I'm sure such a school could find plenty of students...

    Edit 2: Do you know one way or the other that this school taught such?

    Sure, it's based on what we know - and we know very little.
    Maybe my view will change, again, once we know more . . . but that's up to the school.

    If they hold the 5th and fail to communicate their side of the story then I will stand by my new view of this situation.

    Regardless - I understand someone doing something *wrong* and it being grounds for dismissal. But if it's unacceptable in my place of employment or my husband's place of employment as grounds for termination - then why would a 'religious setting' really change the basic values of our country?

    I no longer think it does - relgion is great but only goes so far.
