178. And again someone blaming the victim compares saying, "no" to something more severe.
I'm starting to wonder if anyone supporting the school actually bothered to read the article.

The web page she "published" (on Facebook) was a private profile that contained a link to a lengthy poll in which she answered "no" to "do you believe in God?" The school hired her knowing full well that she wasn't Catholic, so there was no expectation that she adhere to the religion outside of her job.

The web page she "published" (on Atheist Nexus) was a linked article about Federally funded prayer research. Again, the school hired her knowing full well that she wasn't Catholic, so there was no expectation that she adhere to the religion outside of her job.

The question has never been "can," but "should." It's a matter of ethics--was the school right to fire her, not whether they were within their legal rights.
