Teachers, Ministers, Discrimination Debated at Assembly Hearing

Catholic school teachers, students, parents and alumni turned out at an Assembly hearing in San Francisco to blast the Catholic archdiocese’s plans to change teachers contracts and enforce a “morality clause” that describes homosexuality as “gravely evil”. State lawmakers held the hearing to gather information in the wake of a US Supreme Court ruling that says ministers are not covered by anti-discrimination employment laws, an exception that could include teachers at church-based schools. Christopher Martinez reports from San Francisco.
