Church can fire lesbian, but only after maternity leave

Church can fire lesbian after maternity leaveBY STEVE WILLIAMS

A German judge recently ruled that a woman working at a Catholic kindergarten can indeed be fired by the church for being a lesbian, but only after her maternity leave is used up.

The unnamed 39-year-old woman admits to having kept her sexuality private for years while working as the head of a Bavarian kindergarten. However, when she and her partner received the news that she was going to have a baby, she decided it was time to be honest with her church employers.
