Teacher Fired for Marrying Divorced Man to Sue Catholic School

A San Antonio teacher plans to sue her former employer, a Catholic high school, saying she was fired for marrying a man who had been divorced, a proceeding not recognized by the Catholic Church, the San Antonio Express-News reported Tuesday.

Marquis LaFortune, 25, filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission after her Nov. 22 ceremony. She claims that once the school found out her fiancé had been divorced, Deacon Patrick Cunningham told her she had three options: seek an annulment, resign or be fired.

Now this is simply amazing. The Catholic Church, rocked for years for sex with young children scandals, is telling a 25 year old adult female that they are firing her because she married a divorced man who didn't annul his first marriage?

I'm glad, VERY glad I did not attend this school when I was young.
