INDIANAPOLIS: Archbishop Calls for Firing of LGBTQ Teachers - ONLINE PETITION

Faithful America, October 25, 2019.

The Archbishop of Indianapolis has spent the past year pressuring Catholic schools to fire LGBTQ teachers across the archdiocese. Leaders at a local Jesuit high school refused -- so he issued a decree cutting ties with the school. 

Under pressure from Archbishop Charles Thompson, Roncalli High School has already fired two LGBTQ guidance counselors, Shelly Fitzgerald and Lynn Starkey. Now a third school staff member, social worker Kelly Fisher, says she has been fired for standing by her LGBTQ former colleagues on Facebook.

Every human being was created in God's image. No one should ever lose their job as punishment for how they were born -- or for loving their LGBTQ neighbors. Let's show Archbishop Thompson that Catholics and other Christians across the country stand with Jesuit leaders and LGBTQ Catholics in opposing this cruel discrimination!
