Now it is Tippi McCullough, Teacher at Mount St. Mary’s in Little Rock, AK. McCullough received a phone call 40 minutes after marrying her partner –another female– telling her that she had violated the schools “morality clause” and was offered the choice to resign and receive a great recommendation, or she could refuse and be fired.

The continued problem here is that these schools, the Catholic Church and many religions in general seem to think consensual marriage lies in the realm of morality. It does not.

Two people being married does not have a consequential result. The act of marriage does not affect the well being of any other parties outside of the two involved in the marriage.
