Cincinnati Catholic school teachers furious about employment contract’s litany of forbidden sins

Cincinnatti teachersThe Archdiocese of Cincinnati is asking its more than 2,200 teachers to sign an updated ‘morality clause’ employment contract.

In-vitro fertilization, surrogacy, out-of-wedlock sex, a gay “lifestyle”—these are just some of the ‘sins’ that Cincinnati’s Archdiocese expects its teachers to stay away from.

And if they don’t sign a recently updated morality contract by the end of the school year, the Archdiocese’s 2,200 current teachers risk losing their jobs.

"It is an embarrassment and a scandal, and will drive even more Catholics away from an institution so out of touch with its times," said Robert Hague, a teacher who is leaving his job at a Catholic school because of the contract, told CNN.

The revised morality contract is twice the size of last year’s contract, The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. All teachers in the system are bound to sign the clause, whether they are Catholic or not.
