Catholic School Principal fired over marriage equality stance.

It's another article, this time about a Catholic school principal in Ohio, who has been fired because of her support of marriage equality.
http://www.ourdailythread.org/content/catholic-principal-fired-supporting-marriage-equality

I continue not to understand the Church's interference in secular government. Marriage equality is not about sacramental marriage; it's about a secular legal contract that allows two people to file joint tax returns and have insurance coverage for their spouse and own community property. If the Church wants to deny communion to people in same-sex marriages, that is perfectly within her rights as a church. They denied me communion for years because I was divorced and remarried by a JP. No Bishops sought to make divorce and remarriage illegal. If I support the civil (accent on civil) rights of people to enter into a contract, that should not make me a bad Catholic. I am not advocating that the Church endorse same-sex marriage, only that they stay out of government.

3. Sorry. Now I can't access the link either.

And I can't find the story on any other site, although the article did reference Catholics United. It was the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, but I don't remember the name of the school, but I believe it is a high school.

4. From today's Cincinnati Enquirer an assistant principal

at Purcell High School is on administrative leave and about to be fired for posting on his blog his support of gay marriage.

I do not know if this is the same person referred to in the article referenced above, because I was unable to access that article.

2. I agree completely.

There is no other analysis which makes sense.
