Resigning for Gay Marriage aka Marriage

Advertisements

Recently, a local Catholic school teacher, Brian Panetta, was fired after he became engaged to his boyfriend. He had discussed his resignation with the school’s president. Apparently, everyone who works for the school must sign a contract, in which they agree to live by a certain code of conduct. A few hours later, he was fired. A few days later, the school decided to let him resign.
The thing is that the school knew that he was in a relationship with a man. He had really broken the contract the minute he signed it. The school employed him for five years. For five years, he worked at the school as an openly gay man. No one had a problem until marriage became an issue.
So is it better to be living with your significant other and not married than to be in a gay marriage? Would they fire a straight person who was living with their partner and not married? It doesn’t seem like family values are different if you’re gay or straight. How different is marriage from gay marriage? Shouldn’t we just call it marriage?
Kudos to Panetta for saying yes to marriage. It says a lot about his character. I can’t say the same for the school.
