Michael Griffin, a gay teacher at Holy Ghost Prep School was fired this week after applying for a New Jersey marriage license. The school said it could no longer keep someone who was acting in opposition to Catholic Church orthodoxy. The Church would rather keep Griffin living in sin than see him wed his loving partner. This is rank hypocrisy but we’ve come to expect no less from an institution which abused children, covered it up for decades then spent millions trying to keep our state legislators from acting to further protect children from molesting priests.
This is exactly why we need to pass employment non-discrimination laws. This case received national press as it spread virally on social media and Holy Ghost became a pariah.
