MIAMI, FL (WCMH) — Some parents are speaking out after a popular first grade teacher was fired after she posted pictures of her same-sex wedding on social media.
Jocelyn Morffi taught first grade at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School in Miami for seven years. Last weekend, she married her girlfriend and posted pictures of the ceremony to Facebook. On Thursday, Morffi was fired.
In a letter to parents, Principal Carlota Morales called it a “difficult and necessary” decision. Nearly a dozen parents who had children in Morffi’s class came to the school to protest her firing. The parents called her a “great teacher” and said they were aware that she is openly gay and that it made no difference.
“I’m upset,” parent Christina Lopez told WPLG. “The way they handled this was just unbelievable.”
“What she does at home, that’s none of our concern,” said Ricardo Oviedo, another parent of a child in Morffi’s class. “The fact is, she maintained a high moral standard at school and was inscribing in our kids a sense of community and love.”
Several parents said after meeting with the school administration, they still don’t have a satisfactory explanation for why Morffi was fired.
“You know, to be a Catholic, you’re taught to be forgiving. But if you’re gay, forget about it,” said parent Cynthia Cini. “But love is love.”
A spokesperson for the Archdiocese of Miami told WPLG Morffi “broke the contract she signed when she began teaching at a Catholic school.” Her contract contained a moral turpitude clause.
Morffi’s attorney told WPLG they are considering the next legal steps they can take.
Morffi posted a brief statement to Facebook on Friday addressing the issue:
“This weekend, I married the love of my life and, unfortunately, I was terminated from my job as a result. In their eyes, I’m not the right kind of Catholic for my choice of partner. “
2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity,141 tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered."142 They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.
Either the Church is free in the USA to teach and practice it's faith and morals or it is not, but the Church's teaching will never change, no matter what new edits have been made to the CCC under Jorge.
Why did this lesbian apply for a job at a Catholic school in the first place? She's not even a Catholic (heretics are self excommunicated ). Her love for her sin means more to her than Our Blessed Lord. She should be ashamed of herself and yet she's not.
"Last weekend, she married her girlfriend.." No she didn't. She attempted to marry someone.
"“difficult and necessary” decision." Why? This should be an simple and easy decision to make.
"and said they were aware that she is openly gay and that it made no difference." It should matter. What's wrong with these parents?
"“What she does at home, that’s none of our concern,”" Does that include murder, theft, assault or other mortal sins? Or are those special?
I think. Therefore, I am. I can make my own rules based on my conscience. This is within the context that sociopaths have no conscience. ---- Even Sigmund has stated that sexuality is a developed behavior.The natural progression is that young people develop an attraction for a member of the same sex in order to define their own identity. They then have a solid view of their own sexuality and can interact with members of the other sex.---Homosexuality is "incomplete sexual development" where sex is the primary component and largely narcissistic in nature.
Difficult and necessary... Indeed. Coddling these mental cases who would have been locked up in more sane days.
The school "blinked; according to Breitbart ...
Catholic School Caves: Student Allowed to Display Pro-Abortion Sticker and Remain at School
by DR. SUSAN BERRY – 12 Feb 2018
A sophomore at an independent Catholic school in Greenwich, Connecticut, has been permitted to remain at her school and display her sticker that says, “I Stand with Planned Parenthood.”
“The school has reversed their earlier decision and is allowing Kate to leave the sticker on her laptop,” Tracy Murray, mother of Kate Murray, announced, according to Greenwich Time. “Kate has chosen to continue to display the sticker and is happy to remain a part of such a special community. We are moved by the outpouring of support by the alumnae and the community at large and are heartened by its encouragement of one young woman’s voice.”
