Lesbian teacher fired from Catholic school in FL after gay marriage ceremony; other teachers who attended reprimanded by school
A lesbian teacher Jocely Morffi was fired from a Miami Catholic school where she had taught first grade after getting married to a woman in a legal ceremony. USNews has a typical story.
Several other teachers were reprimanded for attending the wedding.
The school insists that its teachers represent the teachings of the Church at all times, but even Pope Francis is said to have disagreed with the firings.
Is this what proponents of “religious freedom laws” want?
I've visited a Catholic school in northern Virginia for chess tournaments and never encountered controversy.
