    I disagree. Florida is an at will state. Read post #32 for details: http://www.debatepolitics.com/polls/...post1058796402

    The least they could have done is allow her to defend herself by using the same criteria that Jesus would use...."Let he who is without sin cast the first stone".

    I actually agree with that.

    Just because they may be able to fire her legally, does not make it right thing to do.

    And what individual rights were violated?

    Wow glad I don't live in Dallas then. In my town I haven't been to a bar yet that doesn't allow smoking.

    Agreed. I think the debate is really centered on whether or not she has a case for a discrimination lawsuit. I think the "moral" code is a joke obviously, but whether or not this qualifies as unfair discrimination, I'm not sure since it's a private business, and I'm assuming they had this rule as part of her contract.

    Well just to start her right to privacy. The school is trying to step into her bedroom.

    It's not like cults care. The only reason they have these so called "ethics" is to keep members in line and make them easier to control. Cults tend to restrict behavior which expresses human emotion and individualism, since it tends to distract from serving the organization. It's a rule for cults, all cults have ethics codes like this which have nothing to do with any actual human ethics, Scientology, Fundamentalism, you name it - they're really all the same.

    She has a degree and is educated. Why would you presume she'd be unable to find work after this?
    People get fired all the time - I was when I was pregnant, twice, it's not your employers concern what you do after you're not employed with them in the future.

    It is a parent's place, though, to ensure they have an adequate means of support for their child - so maybe her idea to become a teacher at a Christian school where her pre-marital sex might be in question wasn't too wise.

    In the same way that's it's unwise for a pedophile to try to become a priest!
