LINK IL Catholic school fires teacher after discovering she’s in a same-sex marriage

Science teacher Sue Fustin says she was assured her marriage wouldn’t be an issue. That turned out to be a lie.

For what we can only assume is the 34902423rd time this has happened, a teacher married to a same-sex partner was fired from a Catholic school.

This time, it was Sue Fustin, a science teacher in Decatur, Illinois. Fustin’s educational career is about as impeccable as it gets. She was a longtime science teacher before becoming a principal. It was only after she formally retired that she opted to give it another go at a local Catholic school that needed some help.

Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School was in desperate need of a science teacher. Fustin was available and eager to jump back into the classroom. It sounded like a win for all sides.

And thus the Monster of the Vatican continues to spread lies, bigotry and hate.


The school’s administration, before hiring the teacher, did not check with their tyrannical overlords, America’s Catholic bishops.


Sad for her and the kids.


I'm not surprised that happened. Religious will tolerate certain things until something that fills there "values" comes along.
