I really think Francis could be on the right track. The difficulty, as with all politicians (and he is a politician, say what you will), is whether he has the energy and the skills to bend the institutions to his statements of belief. It is the difference between firing up the crowds at a campaign rally and delivering the necessary legislation.
As I said before, talk is cheap. Let's see if he can move Catholic dogma on the acceptance of gays. Or on anything else. If not, he will be as revolutionary as Howard Dean.
The talk is cheap.
Wedding photos cost gay teacher his job
Ken Bencomo, 45, was fired from St. Lucy's Priory after marrying his partner of 10 years, the San Bernardino Sun reported.
Officials were aware of Bencomo's sexual orientation for at least 10 of the 17 years he worked at the school, according to his lawyer Patrick McGarrigle.
"The reason given was that the marriage occurred and the school's position was that it violated church teachings," McGarrigle said.
