As a Catholic, I believe that we’re all created in God’s image. I believe it is wrong to fire dedicated LGBTQ teachers or deny children of same-sex couples an opportunity to receive a Catholic education.
At a time of crisis in our Church, when so many have been wounded by clergy sexual abuse and the covering up of crimes, what message does it send that Catholic schools are cracking down on LGBTQ employees?
Heterosexual teachers never face the same kind of scrutiny into their personal lives, and this double standard is a painful wound to many who love our Church.
I stand in solidarity with LGBTQ teachers, affirm their dignity, and urge Catholic leaders to reconsider these unjust firings.
