‘Not the right kind of Catholic’: Private schoolteacher fired days after same-sex wedding

Morffi’s messages were more somber a few days later. On Instagram, she explained to family, friends and anyone else who wondered why she hadn’t showed up at Miami’s Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic School, where she had been a first-grade teacher for seven years.

“This weekend I married the love of my life and unfortunately I was terminated from my job as a result,” she wrote. “In their eyes I’m not the right kind of Catholic for my choice in partner.”

It said students’ education wouldn’t be disrupted and asked parents “for your continued prayers” for the school.


Instead, about a dozen angry parents showed up at the school the next day, demanding an explanation and speaking to gathered news cameras.

“We were extremely livid. They treated her like a criminal, they didn’t even let her get her things out of her classroom,” Cintia Cini, whose child was in Morffi’s class, told the Miami Herald. Cini and other parents said they didn’t know or care about Morffi’s sexual orientation.

1. Yet another reason I avoid all religion. It's another form of politics and strangleholds. n/t

2. Contract

Most Catholic Diocese have clauses in thier contracts that clearly state that you can be terminated for violating church beliefs. You cannot live with your partner, premarital sex is forbidden and anything involving same sex relationships is cause for termination. She knew this when she signed the contract. I am not agreeing with the Diosese at all. It is terrible that she is being punished for marrying the live of her life.

3. So typical of the RCC to completely omit the reason the teacher is gone.

Let rumor or gossip trickle out. Then it’s not on the record. A culture of cover-up.
