2. Most of these schools have it written into their contract what you believe and mustdo (or don't do)

I had a friend send me an application for a job at her local kkkristian school because she knows that I was a science teacher for a long time and that I am a lay leader for our church (which apparently she does not know is an open and affirming congregation).

The application has a long list of things that I would consider to be bad doctrine and views antithetical to Christ's teaching so I politely declined. If the teacher signed one of those documents, unfortunately he doesn't have a leg to stand on. Unfortunately, the EEOC protections do not apply to religious schools especially if the language is explicit in the contract.

These doctrines and policies are destructive and against the real tecahings of Jesus who condemned the love and pursuit of money and power but has no known utterance about homosexuality in either the canon or apocrypha.

I know gay people who have taken jobs at schools like these before because they were in a glut area (English, elementary education, social studies) and hoped that it would not become an issue before they got a job in a public school where they would be protected by the EEOC.
