Michael Griffin was fired from his faculty position at Holy Ghost Preparatory School because he is gay and in a committed relationship which he and his partner wanted to celebrate. Apparently, the contract at the school “requires all faculty and staff to follow the teachings of the church.”

So what of employees who are having sex outside of marriage? How about the folks who cheat on their income tax, a form of stealing? Oh, and what if someone does not go to mass every weekend?

How about the gossips who engage in slander? Or those who covet their neighbor's spouse, or the new Lexus in a friend's yard?

Don't we have a little thing called the 14th Amendment which guarantees all of us equal justice? And what of that pesky little saying of Jesus, something about the one without sin casting the first stone?
