Abstract

Rick Garnett was also quoted in the L.A. Times article Single mothers-to-be and gays fight firings from Catholic school jobs on February 7.

Rick Garnett, director of the church, state and society program at Notre Dame Law School, backed Haggarty’s assertion.

"The Christa Dias case came out wrong, because all teachers -- whether they are teaching about religion or about computers -- can be expected by a Catholic school to model the values and support the mission of the school,” Garrnett told The Times. “To me, it’s no different than expecting the spokesperson for the Green Party to support the Green Party’s values.” http://www.latimes.com/nation/nationnow/la-na-nn-catholic-schools-pregnant-fired-20140207,0,396502.story#ixzz2swhg5jKb
