NephilimNexus: Good, now they can both get jobs at real schools.
c4rr0tc4k3: Just going to throw this in here because most of you seem very retarded.She worked in a religious institution. What she did there is irrelevant and she will be labeled as a minister.Federal law says she can be fired with no regard to federal discrimination laws.Its that easy really. Case closed. Didnt even need a contract.I am a paralegal
ArkAngel: GAT_00: Grand_Moff_Joseph: At some point, the courts need to establish some settled precedent for these types of cases. In this case, she did violate a contract, but the contract never said what (if any) consequences she would face if she violated said contract.So, what happens now?Simple: that clause is illegal.In what way? They didn't fire her for being pregnant. The pregnancy simply revealed the breach in the same way a sex tape would
Two16: Molavian: FFS, is it that hard to not get pregnant?I don't know... having children is a gift, even unplanned children can change you in ways you'd never thought of as possible. It's the last step in becoming a true adult.
2CountyFairs: Real question: Why does the religious Christian right hate Socialism so much? Both use a form of wealth sharing. Both help the helpless. Both have people that like to take advantage of the system. Both have "laws" that can be seen to limit your freedoms. It seems like both are actually kind of similar in these regards.
Bit'O'Gristle: clong17: GAT_00: ArkAngel: They didn't fire her for being pregnant.Oh please. They'll lie, but come on. The school has no right, NONE, to dictate the private lives of their employees. No company does.They aren't telling her what to do on her private time, they are just stating, if you want to work here, there are certain standards they should abide by. On top of that, schools and businesses have been given every right to dictate our private lives. One example is marijuana drug laws. I want to sit home and smoke a little pot on a weekend, I can't because I could be drug tested, and in turn fired./smoking pot is against the law. In most states. farking isn't.
Bit'O'Gristle: How very "Christian" of them to kick a woman out penniless when she's expecting a child, leaving her a pauper. Funny isn't it, how "christians" exhibit some of the most "un-christian" behavior to people. Well, maybe not so funny, but ironic.
Abe Vigoda's Ghost: You seek out a job at a religious organization, you sign a employment contract, you play by their rules even if you don't like them.It may suck, but she knew what she was getting into when she took the job.
Tat'dGreaser: You signed a contract. Don't like it? Don't sign the f*cking contract. How is this difficult?
martissimo: Reading the article it sounds like the case law on this is all over the place, but if she signed a contract that said she had to abstain from pre-marital sex and that's how they word the reason for her firing then she's boned/again//if ya know what I mean
