California Gov. Leaders Outlaw "Catholic Teaching" in San Francisco

Lawmakers to San Fran Archbishop: Drop Morality Clauses for Teachers

"Today's attempt to end Catholic teaching in private schools will follow with the closing of Churches. This new legislative edict requiring the hiring of immoral anti-Catholic teachers to poison children in San Francisco, California today begins the wholesale dismantling of the American church in a major U.S. city," says Eugene Delgaudio president of Public Advocate.

National Catholic Register reports:

A group of California lawmakers asked Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco to remove "morality clauses" from a proposed contract for teachers in high schools under his jurisdiction, reported the Los Angeles Times.

The new language in the contracts direct teachers in four archdiocesan high schools to avoid public statements or actions that oppose Church teaching on contraception, pre-marital sex or homosexual relationships. My story on the proposed change in contract language is here.

In their letter to the archbishop, the California lawmakers argued that the morality clauses "conflict with settled areas of law and foment a discriminatory environment in the communities we serve."
