Here comes the next wave

Look out. New York Catholic school sued by the ACLU for firing an out-of-wedlock, pregnant pre-school teacher.

And according to the article (yes, it is from CNN, please apply salt before reading), the previous case law in New York does not bode well for St. Rose of Lima in Queens.

Which is absurd on its face. How can a Catholic institution have any hope of enforcing its teaching if it can't also reinforce that teaching through the actions of its teachers? Actions -let us remember, people- speak infinitely louder than words.


Of course, the CINOs are chiming in saying that the woman needs to be forgiven. Certainly. Which means she may start over, at another Catholic school if she so chooses, where her teaching reputation is not permanently sullied as it has been at St. Rose.


The ACLU needs to revisit its Gibbon.
