would they have preferred her to abort?  would they have fired her if they found out she had an abortion?  if so, then it's not really about the kids now is it. 

now this woman is pregnant, without health insurance or an income.  doesn't this just sum up how the Religious Right handles things.  don't use contraception, but if you get pregnant don't get an abortion.  now that you're not getting an abortion, you're fired and left on your own to raise your child without support.  do these people even remember the teachings of Jesus? 

moreover, i get that this is a Christian school and they have certain rights that public schools do not.  still, i don't think that they should be able to discriminate, and i find it appauling that our highest court still allows them to do so. 

i also wonder what faith the teacher practices.  if she is Christian, will she continue to be?  HOW could she be?

finally, i found this quote very telling:

"How's it going to look to a little fourth-grade girl that sees she's pregnant and she's not married?"

um, like LIFE.  it reminds me of those parents who are deathly afraid that there children will hear swear words.  anytime you try to hide an aspect of life from young ones their curiosity is peaked.  combine that with the whole "reward vs. punishment" theme, and it's easy to deduce that Religion is akin to bad parenting.

I'm not surprised at all.  I can't believe she didn't realize she would be fired.  I have a pal who got fired from her catholic school job when a fellow teacher found out she was living with her boyfriend of 6 years.  I guess she thought they would overlook it because she was such a beloved teacher, but nope.  They only like you until you step out of line.  Then you are shunned.

 

And these despicable bastards want the rest of us to adhere to their "moral" code.  Yeah. Right!

You've perfectly displayed the hypocrisy of these christian family values.  My brother operates a HUGE, well financed anti-abortion organization.  They put out a sign "Problem Pregnancy Center", next to Planned Parenthood clinics.  They pretend to be clinics.  They are not even medical professionals, not doctors, not nurses.  They are just religious zealots dressed in white uniforms.  The only test they can perform is the sonogram.  Descending to trickery to snare vulnerable, sometimes desperate, women, shows me how ignoble their goal is.   

That is simply disgusting to hear.
Nice rant! Your scream resulted in my laugh, so thanks for that.

Seriously, read Sean Faircloth's book, *"Attack of the Theocrats", he goes into details of how religious schools are getting government funds; yet, get an exemption from the very same Constitutional rights that protect them from discrimination. It's no surprise where it started...

There ought' be a law…. oh, yeah, there is.

*BTW, whenever you order books, do it from here, and this site gets a cut.

indeeeed man

sometimes ya gotta get ill...

"How's it going to look to a little fourth-grade girl that sees she's pregnant and she's not married?"

 

Who says that little fourth-grade girl even knows she's not married? I don't recall ever asking any of my elementary school teachers about their home lives...
