    Yeah!
    She deserves it!
    Christians don't have babies, OR SEX!
    The article says...

    Cathy Samford was fired during the fall semester after she became pregnant out of wedlock.
    I am guessing that means she was not married when she got pregnant, which christians are against.

    Still should not have been fired though. Its a retarded excuse to fire.


    Edited:

    DO PLEASE READ THE OP.
    IT EVEN SAYS OUT OF WEDLOCK WHICH MEANS NOT BEING MARRIED.
    Which christian people happen to be against.

    if it's a private school and she knew she wasn't supposed to become pregnant then i don't see the issue
    might have something to do with the fact that theres no precedent or justification for this. maybe you don't see a legal issue here but at the very least it should raise some moral concerns about at-will employment and the mindset surrounding it.

    Replace drugs with alcohol then. And I wasn't comparing anything, just being curious about laws.
    Pastor who was a teacher at a christian academy I used to go to ( I'm not christian though, I just went there for the good education. ) had a very bad drinking problem. He didn't get fired, so why should she?

    It's funny though, the teacher I used to have there, she'd always single me out because I didn't go to church. Just another example of stupidity, really.

    "How's it going to look to a little fourth-grade girl that sees she's pregnant and she's not married?"
    O c'mon. I hate this kind of defense. Kids that are that young and in school, do not give a shit about what there teachers personal lives entail much less pay attention to those kind of details. Not like you get an astute fourth grader making the deduction of pregnant + no wedding ring = license to whore.

    Well, considering it's a Christian school aren't the teachers forced to follow these outdated and sick...i mean moral principles of the bible?
    there aren't any principles in the bible where it says Christians need to behave this way towards others...

    People just use the term "Christian" where it benefits them more...

    come to ask a person are they Christian? they'll say yes...
    ask them do they go to church regularly, they'll laugh at your face...

    How one school chooses, or doesn't choose, to enforce their morals clause has nothing to do with what another school does. All the morals clause does is provide the reason, it does not mean they have to use it, but it does give them the option to use it.

    Plus we all know with religious people the men always get preferential treatment, especially where a woman's sexuality is concerned. A man fighting alcoholism is noble, a woman having a child out of wedlock is a whore, in their eyes.

    That was in reply to someone being stupid.

    He was comparing street drugs to pregnancy... and then alcoholism to pregnancy.

    It was not meant for personal consumption/counterargument/rebuttal.

    She signed a contract, though.
    An employer cannot create a work contract which removes rights put forward in legislation. If he does such, those rights are still recognised.
