Catholic schools can’t fire teachers for being gay

LGBTQ+ Nation is reporting that a federal court has ruled that a North Carolina catholic school wrongfully fired a teacher in 2014 just because he was gay. Last Friday US District judge Max Cockburn ruled that the Charlotte Catholic high school and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Charlotte, North Carolina wrongfully fired gay substitute drama and English teacher Lonnie Billard in 2014. Cockburn ruled that the school violated federal protections against sex discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. The judge wrote that the school’s actions weren’t protected by constitutional rights to religious freedom. He also ruled that “the school’s action didn’t fit into exemptions to labor law that give religious institutions leeway to require certain employees to adhere to religious teachings.” In 2014 the school fired Billard after he announced his wedding to a man on Facebook. He posted about his upcoming wedding in October 2014 and was informed by an assistant principal several weeks later that he no longer had a job with the school.
