Nitpicking in the cause of accuracy, the school didn't fire her because her husband beat her, they fired her because he came to the school and was a threat to the children. Parents were threatening to remove kids from school. Apples and oranges I know, and still a dick move.


It would be nice if just for a change the Catholic Church behaved a though women were people too, just to mix things up a bit.

Under that logic, anyone who is a victim of a crime should be banned from teaching.  You know, in case their attacker ever follows them to work.

Well, many locations around the country already use that logic in order to evict victims of domestic violence.

Dollars to donuts says a lawyer or risk manager made this recommendation to mitigate the risk of litigation if psycho dad came to the school and hurt someone. A wrongful termination suit is a lot cheaper than some tort suit arising from some act of extreme violence.

The psycho dad DID come to the school, that's why they didn't want her around.

shiatty solution, but the best solution is to take out the dad.  This wasn't a church decision, it was a liability decision because parents complained.

Of course, Fark liberals won't understand the nuances of the situation.

Do you assign partisanship to absolutely everything? This isn't a situation where "liberals" are annoyed. It's that some poor woman got screwed by the actions of her husband. It's entirely apolitical. This is an issue of humanity and the absurdity of how we sh*t ourselves because we're "thinking of the children," not left or right politics.

No, hysterical one, the difference here is that the violent one DID show up at the workplace, in violation of a restraining order!

This isn't about women.  If a male attracted violent felons to the school he'd be gone too.   Nobody's punishing the victim here.  Her presence poses a substantial hazard, so she has to go.

Sucks for her but the school is not to blame.  Even without the ministerial  exception protection (she taught religious classes), I doubt that she would prevail in a lawsuit.  The school is not  obliged to surround itself with armed guards to protect her and everyone else.

I wonder who farkers would be blaming if the ex-husband went after his wife, and maybe some students, with a gun. Wait, no I don't. I don't like what the school did here, but come on! What were the alternatives? It's a shiatty situation all around. I'm on her side, she deserves a full pension or something if they have to cut her loose like that, but I'm not jumping at the bit to blame a regular fark-favorite punching bag when they are in an impossible situation.

You have that at the ready, and accuse me of being "political."  Yet you didn't even read enough to understand that her dismissal was from the concern of parents of other children, not the Catholic church.

They made a decision based on a potential threat that may or may not happen that had an actual negative consequence of the lives of five innocent people. Their actions made the world a worse place right here and now. That is wrong.

Yeah, she got fired because a violent person was targeting her. Sounds like her kids were effectively expelled, for the same reason.

Further, were I in charge:

1) Restraining orders do actually work. With the body of 9-1-1 calls in TFA, that shouldn't have been hard to get.
2) The diocese fired her, not the school. Instead, they could easily have found another position for her somewhere else in he diocese.
3) The police don't need her to be the one to call them for domestic abuse. If her ex shows up and is abusive, they can report it, and the cops will investigate. And probably act.

No, this is just another case of the Church choosing the least Christ-like path possible.

If only there were some way for the school to call the police and demand that he be arrested and held as a terrorist. FLEX some of that clout and demand that he be held without bail. Demand that he be held on a 5150. Get a temporary restraining order keeping him the fark away from everyone and shoot and kill him as soon as he violates it, because you KNOW he will.

or kick her out because, you know, lawsuits and losing clients?
ROFL

wait, the PARENTS were threatening to remove their snowflakes because it was dangerous? unless she was fired?

The whole point of a society is that there are rules in place to keep bad people from having any effect on good people. If a man threatens a whole school you can't morally ask anyone in the school to be held responsible. HE is the problem. Eliminate him. You can't punish innocent people because of his shiat.

I'd love to eliminate him permanently.  He was sent to prison on two felonies and is getting out after only six months.  The rules put in place by society aren't working.  So what's the school  supposed to do?  Just  say, "Oh, well, society's rules don't work so  we'll just take chances with other people's kids?"

The woman and her children are being hurt. To use your example the tree is being hurt too. You could install a lightening rod, which would save your house and the tree, but you choose not to. The school has lots of options that can protect their students without harming anyone. In fact, it seems that they already have procedures that HAVE worked to keep them safe. Blacklisting this woman and her children because of the actions of her ex-husband was wrong.

Yeah, like what options?  Hire private guards and raise everyone's tuition?  Lock down the school every time a strange car pulls into the parking lot, driving the kids nuts and lengthening the school year?  Install a videoconference setup so she can teach from home?

People are employed to dispose of problems, not to attract them.

Okay, but how do you protect the whole school from a crazed person who is potentially violent? What if he decides to bring a gun and shoot up her whole class? Even armed guards at other schools didn't stop school shootings.

If this story had gone the other way, and the school hadn't fired her, and he had showed up and shot her and a couple kids, NO ONE would be applauding the school and saying they did the right thing.

This is nothing new, and not exclusive to Catholics. My mothers first husband beat her. Her church and all of her supposed church friends wanted nothing to do with here when she divorced him. They tried to get her to stay and "work it out."


Probably one of the biggest reasons I want nothing to do with organised religion.

crab66: This is nothing new, and not exclusive to Catholics. My mothers first husband beat her. Her church and all of her supposed church friends wanted nothing to do with here when she divorced him. They tried to get her to stay and "work it out."

Yeah, it's exactly the same as TFA's situation.

Funny how this DIVORCED woman was teaching RELIGIOUS classes at a Catholic school.  They have no tolerance at all.

Divorce isn't the problem. They cannot remarry unless it's annulled by the church. Common misconception.

As to the other shiat. Ugh. Horrible situation. I feel for her. And at the same time I wouldn't want my nephew at her school or in her class because of her insane and criminal ex, so I also understand the fears of the parents and the school. Utterly unfair to her and the kids.

There are a lot of victim assistance funds out there, as well as help for people who've been battered in a relationship. Hopefully that can assist her in surviving currently and with finding new work as well. Many people battered in a relationship are faced with economic and employment hardships. It's part of the leverage used to keep them trapped.

Not ideal, but highlights the need for such programs. Until someone has a better suggestion. =-\

Satanic_Hamster: Under that logic, anyone who is a victim of a crime should be banned from teaching.  You know, in case their attacker ever follows them to work.


Logic?  We're talking about religious schooling here.  The Catholics just have  pretensions of academic rigor, they don't typically actually have the thing itself.
