IN teacher fired for same-sex marriage


INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Cathedral High School announced in a letter to the community Sunday that it will “separate” from a teacher who is in a same-sex marriage.

Cathedral says the decision comes after “direct guidance” from the Archbishop of Indianapolis.

Cathedral says a conversation with the Archdiocese of Indianapolis has been ongoing for the last 22 months.
