TEACHER FIRED FOR PREGNANCY
Christian School Fires Teacher Who is Pregnant Out of Wedlock.
By KTRH STAFF
A volleyball coach and science teacher at Heritage Christian Academy has been fired for getting pregnant out of wedlock.
29-year old Cathy Samford was named "Coach of the year" at the school she has been working at for three years. Samford is currently pregnant and she was let go at the school because she is unmarried.
Colin Walsh, her attorney, says this is a blatant case of discrimination but Heritage Christian says that is not the case. HCA is a private, religious campus, and according to the school's headmaster, Dr. Ron Taylor the school considers teachers to be ministers, since they're allowed to share their beliefs in the classroom.
HCA was contacted by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission regarding the firing. Samford and Walsh said they're now considering legal action.
'Ok' for firing a woman for getting pregnant out of wedlock, or not 'ok'?
Can they fire the obese staff members for the sin of 'gluttony'?
