Ohio Catholic School Teacher Fired Because He Got Engaged to a Man

Posted by Paul Constant on Tue, Jan 14, 2014 at 1:29 PM

Here's some class-A bullshit:

A Ohio Catholic school has forced its choir and band director to resign after telling schools officials he and his boyfriend recently became engaged.

Brian Panetta, who worked at Sandusky Central Catholic School for almost five years, was terminated Jan. 3 on the grounds that his engagement violated the religious teachings of the Catholic Church as it applies to marriage — just hours after he told school administrators about his engagement.

So the stance of Catholic schools in 2014 is that it's okay if you're gay and a member of our faculty, but if you try to enter a committed relationship, we'll fire you? Yeah, that makes a whole lot of fucking sense.
