Texas – 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.

    The teacher knew this was against the beliefs of the Catholic Church. Don’t want to follow the rules, go to work somewhere else.

    And this is just one of many reasons why church-operated schools are a bad idea.

    This, from the church who continually hides pedophiles by sending them from church to church to church so that more and more children, particulary boys are sexually molested, and that molestation messes most of those boys up for the rest of their lives. Jesus said if anyone leads a child astray, it will be better had he not been born! Pergatory does not exist–it’s either Heaven or hell. And these priests work for the church too! They live within the church grounds. Now, why should the church be so self righteous as to fire a teacher who chose not to live in sin and get married. So what if he has been divorced? You CANNOT STAY IN A MARRIAGE BY YOURSELF!! And a person who’s spouse has demanded divorce should not be punished by not being able to remarry. Jesus made room for divorce because He knew human nature. He hates it, but He knew it would be nessesary. I find it totally hysterical that a man who has never married, and chances are he’s a pediphile or homosexual, yet these same men who have never experienced the intimacy of a close, loving relationship like marriage or know the first thing about family dynamics, yet they are councelors for these two very things. I would not trust most priests as far as I could pick them up and throw them, with my children! I know that the catholics who read this are going to be upset, but the roman catholic church is beyond hypocritical that teaches its poor mislead people that praying to ‘saints’ who are DEAD HUMAN BEINGS will have their prayers answered. They teach that Mary remained a virgin after Jesus Christ was born and that is out right false! Jesus had at least 4 half brothers that were named and at least 2 unnamed sisters. These children were from Mary and her husband, Joseph. Mary cannot hear your prayers, nor can she save your soul–she’s been dead for more than 2000 years. For all the good it does to pray to anyone except the Father and the Son, you may as well pray to your dead grandparents! Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No man comes to the Father except through Me.” This is a church who has stated repeatedly that when Scripture and church tradition disagree–church tradition supercedes the Gospel Scripture! People–Jesus loves you and He died for your sins. Even though you catholics are forbidden to read your Bible, for the sake of your everlasting soul, start reading it and studying it. And while you are at it, read up on the history of the RCC. Try “A Woman Rides the Beast” by Dave Hunt and another excellent one is by Charles Chiniquay and his book is called, “Fifty years in the Roman Catholic Church.” In that book, you will learn how the Vatican was behind the assasination of President Abraham Lincoln, because he (Lincoln) was making all the foreign catholic priest renounce their loyalty to the Vatican and to take an oath of loyalty to uphold America and all her laws. Most of the priest coming from Rome in the 17 and 1800′s came here to build churches and to take claim over the country for the vatican like it has so many other countries even to this day. If these priests refused to take this oath of loyalty, they were deported–quickly! It ticked the pope at the time right off! And history tells us what happened to Lincoln–except the church’s involvement was swept under the rug. Learn the long, ugly and faked history of the Roman Catholic Church…it will make you vomit!

    Tugboat Mama….as much as I appreciate the effort, this isn't the place for preaching. Most of the people who go to this website aren't here to be lectured. We're just here to read an article or two and have a laugh at the comments.

    That being said. . . . I am of the opinion that "religion" is a man-made entity and ALL churches and church leaders only exist for the power they hold over the followers of whatever particular religion they subscribe to. Religion's aren't about spirituality, they're about power, rules, control & numbers, and this article proves my point.

    Thanks, Annonymous. I appreciate your thoughts. Tugboat mama, put a sock in it. I’m Catholic, but I don’t pray to saints or worship statues, nor do I blame ALL priests for what is wrong with the church, that wouldn’t be fair. Catholics do not condone what SOME priests have done and the way it has been covered up, we are just as outraged as you are. It’s just like our corrupt government, how much control can we have, especially if we don’t even know what’s going on?
    Anyone can write a book on his or her interpretation of the Bible or the Catholic church, and chances are someone will buy it and read it and believe it. I’ll just stick with reading the Bible. Thanks for your “enlightening” lecture.

    Sounds like you are the only retard here. If I want to read a book, I’ll grab one off the shelf. I dont want to read one in the comment section of a news blog. Apparently quite a few people feel this way.
