Interesting points here. I am a Catholic and I do not believe in gay marriage. No need to debate, you won't convince me and I won`t convince you. Why should an institution keep on someone whose lifestyle is in direct contranst to their beliefs? I think the school has every right to do what they did. I could be let go from my job at any time for pretty much no reason at all. Sucks to be me. All that said, I don`t think I agree with the decision. I think there should be a place in the Catholic church for gays because there should be a place in the church for all who seek God. What that is, I don`t know, but it seems hypocritical for a Catholic institution to turn any people away who seek the Lord.

Cats, he's not wearing his gayness on his sleeve

Oooo! Nice one @CodeJockey! +1!
(See, the Nazi girl wears her politics... on her sleeve! Literally.)

If he was hired with them knowing he was gay, it was probably on the understanding that he KEEP it quiet. Putting it in the local paper, while his right, also gives them a valid excuse to fire him.
Really? They shouldn`t have hired him in the first place, which is ALSO discrimination.
Forcing a religion to hire someone outside their faith? Who violates their doctrine?

It`s lose-lose all around.

It may be wrong ethically to fire him, but legally it is their right. I think it's BS though.

Cats, he's not wearing his gayness on his sleeve by telling people `you should be gay!!`
People that knew him didn`t know for nearly ten years until he showed up some time and introduced the guy as his partner.

That says he was keepin` it to himself.

I think both he and you guys are mistaken as to why he was discharged.

-The organization new he had a partner for 10 or more years.
-He got hitched, photos were in the paper.

There is only one reason for a private school to want to part with him:
The number of 'parent complaints with threat to withdraw` equated to a value of tuition greater than his own ability to attract student enrollment.
Virtually any other reason not related to his performance or attendance may be seen as a rights violation. So, they may also have concluded the expense of a suit is also outweighed by tuition.

That or it`s just a knee-jerk reaction by some administrator who`s competence is now in question.
