Massachusetts judge rules against Catholic school in gay firing

By John Mack Freeman

A Massachusetts court has ruled that a Catholic school discriminated against a gay man when they rescinded an offer of employment because they discovered he was married to a man.

Superior Court Associate Justice Douglas H. Wilkins ruled that Fontbonne Academy violated that commonwealth’s anti-discrimination laws. This is believed to be one of the first times that a religious institution has lost an employment discrimination case on the grounds of sexual orientation being protected from discrimination.
