Lesbian Teacher's Allegation She Was 'Fired' From B.C. Catholic School Sparks Debate
Reimer, who is not Catholic, said she signed a "Catholicity clause" at Little Flower Academy saying she would respect the Catholic school's faith and "demonstrate a respectful and sympathetic sensitivity to the aims and nature of the school and to the Catholic beliefs and practices of the school."
The clause, which allows religious schools to insist that teachers and students conform to articles of their faith, was upheld by the Supreme Court of Canada in 2001.
However, Reimer did not tell the school when she was hired for a one year contract to replace the school's regular music teacher who was on maternity leave, that she was a lesbian and involved in a homosexual relationship.
Another "victim"heard from.The minister of education is sticking her nose into something the courts have decided is legal.Politicians have NO shame.
