Catholic school fires teacher...for being Catholic?
UPDATE: Thanks to massive public outcry, Immaculata High School has restored Patti Jannuzzi to her teaching position and she will return again in the Fall. Thank you for your support! Your help contributed to this success!
After teaching Catholic theology for 31 years at Immaculata High School in New Jersey, Patti Jannuzzi was suspended from her job because she posted comments (in response to Dan Savage's attacks on Dr. Ben Carson) saying the "gay agenda" is trying to "re-engineer Western civ."
She expressed her views on her private facebook page, but certain LGBT alumni from the school took offense and brought the issue to the attention of the school administration, who removed her from her teaching position. Her only offense was expressing the orthodox Catholic teaching on same-sex relations in her private capacity!
Much of the media—including the local newspapers—have described Jannuzzi’s Facebook posting as a “rant” when the reality is that she wrote: “We need healthy families with a mother and a father for the sake of the children and humanity!” Pointing to her statement that “[gay activists] want to reengineer western civilization into a slow extinction,” as evidence of her hatefulness, more than 1,000 individuals have signed a petition to have her removed. I believe we can find more people who support Jannuzzi, and who will sign this petition on CitizenGO.
Show your support by signing the petition to the school, demanding that she be reinstated.
Now Jannuzzi's family is will lose their health benefits, in addition to threatening their home, insurance, automobile, and education expenses. Their family's very livelihood is at stake! Patti Jannuzzi successfully battled breast cancer without missing a single day of teaching, except for the day of her operation, yet this is how she is rewarded.
Please take a moment to sign our letter to the Principal of Immaculata High School and the Bishop of the Diocese of Metuchen, New Jersey (which has even attacked the Jannuzzi family) asking that she be restored to her position!

Restore Patti Jannuzzi!
