    So you have an abusive ex-spouse and get fired from your job not because of your behavior but because of the ex's acts. Seems to me that something is wrong with this picture. I hope some lawyer picks up on this story and gives the lady a bit of help.

    She already has a lawyer, but since a small part of her job was teaching religion, there is a "ministerial exception" that will make it an uphill battle.

    And then there are articles like this:

    Look in the mirror, bozos. This woman & her 4 kids (who were also booted out of the same school along with their teacher/mother) haven't been back in your church since.

    It would not surprise me at if they wanted the mother & kids gone simply because the husband/father was no longer living with them. I knew a woman ~30 years ago who could not get her daughter (one of the most angelic eight-year-olds you would ever meet) enrolled in a parochial school because they were in a similar family situation. They turn away & deny the ones that they need most to reach out to.

    Yep. Which is why I gave the Archbishop of Washington DC the finger and my bare (expletive deleted) as he did the bell book and candle on me.

    Far as I'm concerned, instead of stealing everyone's pension, they should just strip the Catholic Church of 501(c)3 status and start gathering assets.

    Are you terribly shocked that these educators seem lacking in IQ somewhat like their secular counterparts? I'm not. People are people, with similar problems across the board. Let these particular ones pay the price for their culpable stupidity. I hope the woman sues to get her job back and impart some lessons to this school.

    I'm not sure how this justifies a broad-brush indictment against all roman catholics, per Frank. Such an act as he advocates is a direct attack on the first amendment of the US Constitution. After all, who is the target of these actions? Prevents the free exercise of one's religion does it not, if your congregation areas are seized.... :(

    Also, with regard to finding assets, good luck with that. After paying all the legal judgements in the pedophile priest cases, a great many dioceses are flat out strapped or near bankruptcy.

    The asset gathering exercise, not against the church, but against you, has been launched already, in the GROWING crescendo of "bail-in" announcements flooding out of the G8 over the past two weeks, including Japan this past week. Bail-in means the financial institutions will be allowed to fail and since they have lost many times MORE than their capital and they owe others (derivates/credit default swaps), to satisfy their obligations, every one holding property with them WILL BE LIQUIDATED, that means businesses, charities, churches, pension funds, depositors--everyone. Money is flooding out of banks and into real estate and other real assets--property prices here in the bay area have gone up over 30% in the past few months.

    consider a bit what that means. if nobody has money....

    The pedophile priests only proves my point.

    The First Amendment guarantees the free exercise of religion. It does not guarantee tax exempt status to any religion. Abusing the privilege, as the Catholic Church has repeatedly done, should be cause.

    Walz vs. Tax Commission of the City of New York.

    A religious organization can lose this status for specific political activity, such as direct advocacy of a particular political candidate. AFAIK, only one church has ever lost its status for that reason.

    Yet Westboro Baptist Church still has non profit status
