Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati Loses. Artificially Inseminated Lesbian Teacher Christa Dias Awarded $170,000 Comments

The Catholic Church was just fined by a civil jury for insisting that an employee at a Catholic School abide by the moral teaching of the Catholic Church. In the wake of the growing hostility toward the Church and the increasing violations against the Free Exercise of Religion in the United States, this verdict is a metaphorical warning shot across the bow.  Continue Reading

    Let's pray for understanding through it all, through all our ordeals. Make sacrifice. Be meek. Seek God. Know the Truth. Truth will set us free. Be at peace. And love God, people, Church through it all. Have faith.
    May God strengthen us all and use us to build not destroy. May we have the guidance of the Holy Spirit please. May we listen. May we obey. May God enlighten us to see the Victory and put all that we do in accordance with That Victory. May we not be fooled by Satan and lead away from the Victory of God's Church.
    Oh Jesus, make our hearts more like unto Thine.

    This woman is a lost sheep, by her own design. Being a lesbian and having a child is an oxymoron, but aided by science, carries a child in her womb - where is our concern for the child growing up in this very unhealthy environment?
    The Catholic school should have never hired her - and if they did before she had revealed her sexual lifestyle, she had lied and that should have been the basis for her dismissal.
    Shame on her and shame on the lawyers defending her, they will stop at nothing to advance their fame. But, at the end of all this, each one of us will have to answer to the Lord for our actions. This woman is a shame to the womanhood, motherhood, person-hood, she is a personification of the devil's plan for the humanity - and all in the role of a teacher!
    If I had a child in that school, I would certainly remove him/her from this woman's class.
    May the Lord open her mind and her heart so she can return to sanity.

    If you not able to follow the Catholic Church teaching than what are you looking for there.
    You have many other religion where you able to fit in, but don't be an evil to judge the Christ Church. Just think about it.

    I was terminated by a Catholic School in Los Angeles because I asked that a lesbian administrator at the Catholic school not evaluated me as a teacher. I had a 9 month old son and a 10 year old daughter. My wife is Catholic from a foreign country. We have not recovered financially since this happened. We contacted Cardinal Levada at the time in Rome and explained what had happened. He passed it off to Cardinal Mahony who did nothing. The LA Diocese refused to help, though members of the diocese were on the board of the school. What was and is still so painful is what my children and wife had to endure because of this injustice. I was told when I left the school by HR that the school wasn't "Catholic" enough for me. My wife asks why the school then "calls" itself Catholic? I am published in numerous Catholic magazines and was an awarded teacher. I am not sure any of the mainstream Catholic publications want to publish this story. I was told to leave the Los Angeles area because it is so liberal. I wondered if that is what they would have said to John the Baptist when Herod was coming after him. Move from Galilee. We haven't. It's been very tough. If not for some kind non-Catholics we would be in serious shape.

    I am really sorry for the teacher and the new "family" she's started. We all should pray for them. God will show them mercy. What an awful responsibility she will carry to her grave! Pray for her. Pray for all of them please. And pray for all those that have led her to such a place. May God have mercy on us.

    In this case, the decision by the "jury" was based on emotion. The logical and legal decision would have been that this person violated her contract with the school. Period. Appeal will determine this to be the case, unless the president bullies the appeals court to violate its responsibilities and oath. However, as we know, justice will not always prevail on this earth. Though that doesn't make this verdict "O K", it does address the reality that we Catholic Christians are IN ETERNITY, from the moment of our conception. Our lives will truly begin for all eternity after physical death (as you well know). The reality is that ALL humans are in eternity now, and can't escape to an alternative existence. If the United States turns into Sodom, we will be led to leave while it is being destroyed by fire. We are to be IN the world, but not OF the world. Let us LEAD our children and those who need leadership (and will accept it) by our good Catholic Christian example. Give to Caesar what is his, and to God what is His. We may be in for persecution. Our brothers and sisters in Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia are being persecuted to DEATH. We here must harden ourselves but maintain a loving heart. Pray that this ruling will be justly overturned. Pray that this administration's policies against our rights to life, liberty and accomplishment will be overturned. VOTE! Raise your children with the knowledge that Jesus and his Apostles and Disciples were loving, but TOUGH. And make sure WE are on GOD's side.

    You cannot refuse to hire and or renew their contracts,they run screaming to the nearest activist judge;I"m a victum,I'm being persecuted because I am a lesbo.The rights of the Church and the parents who attend these scools have no revelance in the socialist system.Only the perverted rights of the latest victim group matter.

    Tom McGuire wrote: "How did Jesus handle the opposition? ....His response was primarily silence."

    Except for “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to" and the entire rest of that discourse, and throwing over the money-lenders' tables in the Temple and chasing the money lenders with a whip.. Other than stuff like that He was completely silent...

    Why did the school hire her in the first place? Did they not know who or what she was when she was hired? Another question: Is the Archdiocese receiving any type of federal/government assistance? If so they have to follow government guidelines. This is how many schools were desegregated. Back in the 1950s I went to a "Christian" college. We had to go to chapel no matter what beliefs( or lack thereof ) we had. We also had to take a Bible class and a course on ethics and Christianity. If we were deficient in chapel attendance we did not graduate. In the meantime that stuff's been knocked off. Schools that are strictly private - that means no government assistance - can discriminate 'til Hell freezes over. Do the Catholic schools admit students other than Roman Catholics? Do they get federal funding? The Constitution does say "---Congress shall make no laws respecting the establishment of religion." Go strictly private and you can do what you want( except burn people at the stake ).

    St. Francis of Assisi said "Teach the Gospel by your life, and if necessary, use words". Remember, at the Last Supper, Jesus said that "The Holy Spirit will take what is mine, and make it know to you." (Jn. 16:14) "He will convict the world, in regard to sin, righteousness, and Judgement."...."In regard to righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no more..." (Jn. 16:8,10). Therefore, Jesus is saying we will recognize Him through the Holy Spirit, by seeing and doing what is right, because He is the "Sun of Righteousness". Our children need to see parents and teachers walk in righteousness, so that we may be in communion with God's Son, to offer His body, blood, soul, and Divinity in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference's whereby God is offended. As we celebrate the feasts of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, we can offer prayers for the conversion of sinners; to bring all the Glory to Our Father in Heaven!
