    This makes me ashamed at being raised Catholic. Why on earth should sexuality have any effect on your ability to do your job? Why would it be bad for your child to be taught by a same sex attracted person?

    Unfortunately, I have heard of it happening before. A teacher in my school (Catholic school in Glasgow) said that a teacher quit working there because of the tension surrounding him being gay, and it was claimed that many parents would be uncomfortable with it.

    That's why I only come out if I know I'm going to be accepted.

    The practitioners of Catholicism (some) are about power, control, greed. Catholics (some) mask power, control, greed with good deeds, helping the homeless, food banks, etc. Deep down Catholics (some) have a massive amount of blood on their hands - blood in the form of actual deaths, the teaching of hate, putting greed before helping others they have injured.

    For clarification: To some degree Catholics (some) are responsible for gay people who commit suicide, because Catholics (some) generate societal hate. How, why? Because Catholics (some) teach hate and contempt. The firing of the teacher is just one example.

    This is so sad. An average classroom probably have 1-3 gay students (I don't know numbers for other LGBTQ+ people ). They deserve representation in their every day life. Gay kids, trans kids, bi kids, non-binary kids, ++ kids need to know they exist!

    That's intolerance. It's something I'd expect to be from before I was at school. And I was at school in the 1970s.
