yet another stupid move by the Catholic church!


A church that prides itself on how many breeders it has in its congregation (its the best way to take over the world, just breed and breed until you are the entire population) and it's family values, has a lawsuit filed against it (one of many, as we know). This time, a Catholic school fired a teacher for being pregnant, and unmarried! Geez, they can't even get their stories straight. You have to have children, but no sex if yr not married.

NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Civil Liberties Union has filed a federal discrimination complaint against a Catholic school, charging that it unjustly fired an unmarried teacher for being pregnant.
"I don't understand how a religion that prides itself on forgiving and on valuing life could terminate me because I'm pregnant and choosing to have this baby," Michelle McCusker said Monday at a news conference to announce the suit.
The 26-year-old preschool teacher was fired last month from St. Rose of Lima in Queens, according to published reports.
The Diocese of Brooklyn also was named in the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission complaint.
"This is a difficult situation for every person involved, but the school had no choice but to follow the principles contained in the teachers' personnel handbook," diocese spokesman Frank DeRosa said in a news release.
The handbook says that each teacher must "convey the teachings of the Catholic faith by his or her words and actions."
Lawyers at the NYCLU, which filed the suit on McCusker's behalf, argued that administrators enforced the policy in a way that disproportionately affects women.
"The school used her pregnancy as a marker," attorney Cassandra Stubbs said. "How do they determine if male employees engage in premarital sex?"
