I don’t know about you but I would expect a black college to fire a soul who worked for them if it was found out they also were a member of the K.K.K.
This story from OMAHA, Neb. –
Students are rallying behind a Skutt Catholic High School teacher who likely won’t be returning to the classroom this coming fall.
An online petition launched alleges that Matthew Eledge, an English teacher and speech coach at the school since 2010, is being fired for being in a gay relationship.
A Deacon Tim McNeil with the Archdiocese of Omaha and its affiliated schools said “the Archdiocese never comments on private personnel issues, the teacher wasn’t fired, but his contract simply will not be renewed.”
Supporters of the teacher contend the decision was made after he told Skutt leaders about his engagement to another man.
McNeil said not renewing a contract can be determined through a number of reasons, which can include not “upholding the teachings of the church.
This is not an issue of gay rights. The issue here is can a private Catholic school uphold Bible based values. My sister who is a teacher at a Catholic grade school told me she also has a moral clause in her contract that if she would break it she also could be let go from her job. The issue might be different if this was a public school. A school or a church can not go by feelings but must submit to it’s core values. It doesn’t matter if the issue is a same sex relationship or some souls living together outside of the marriage bed.
What do you think.
Until next time,
