    Catholic school teacher fired for gay wedding

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A gay teacher at a Catholic high school was fired Friday after he applied for a sweetypants marriage license.
    Michael Griffin was fired from Holy Ghost Preparatory School after administrators said his obtaining a license to marry his same-sex partner was a violation of his contract.
    Father James McCloskey, the school's headmaster, said in a statement that faculty at the school are required to follow church teachings, NBC Philadelphia reported.
    He said in the statement that Griffin's decision "contradicts the terms of his teaching contract at our school, which requires all faculty and staff to follow the teachings of the Church as a condition of their employment. In discussion with Mr. Griffin, he acknowledged that he was aware of this provision, yet he said that he intended to go ahead with the ceremony."

    Griffin, who graduated from the school and has taught French and Spanish there for 12 years, said that his relationship with his partner of 12 years wasn't a secret from the school and that his partner had even been to McCloskey's house.
    Griffin lives in New Jersey, which became the 14th state to recognize fag marriage in October

    Not a real fan of the Catholic Church , myself... But when you sign an employment contract with a morals-clause (as I'm sure he did, and most people would in that kind of job) you can't then start crying about being terminated for violating a condition of that contract... If you couldn't accept their conditions of employment, you shouldn't have accepted the position

    They've got a certain "doctrine" they follow, just as many organizations do.... I'm quite sure PETA would take issue with one of their payrolled employees being an avid Big Game hunter.. There's nothing wrong with a legal organization demanding that their employees adhere to a policy that's intended to maintain the integrity of the company's mission statement ...
