Catholic school teachers leaving over morality clause

Parent protests in front of school. Online petitions circulating. And perhaps most concerning to the Oakland Catholic Diocese: Some donors are declining to contribute money to schools.

There is more fallout coming from our story last week about how Catholic school teachers must sign a new contract with the Diocese of Oakland pledging to conform to church teachings outside the workplace.

O’Dowd teacher Kathleen Purcell said that she crossed out what she felt was the objectionable language on her contract, then signed and submitted it. But it was rejected and the history teacher and career counselor won’t return. Purcell, a longtime civil rights and constitutional law attorney, said she couldn’t in good conscience sign the contract.

“It’s a loyalty oath and to sign that would go against everything I believe in,” Purcell said. ...

I was reminded of your question to Troll Yurich when I read this verse.

John 9:22 KJV
(22) These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.

Imagine being more concerned for status at the synagogue than confessing that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God.

GS he will just say that a priest can't excommunicate, which is why I used a bishop, because a bishop can.

Also, John/George, I said nothing about being requested for a meeting, GS is giving you the scenario I mentioned, you are confronted not given the choice of a meeting. I still say you will not answer the question. I am not trying to win an argument with you. I am trying to show to you and others who doubt it, that your choice of the RRC is not just a love of liturgy or a showing of shyness but a hope of heaven. Excommunication would be meaningless to you if you were born from above.

See I said you would not answer the question. You probably won't answer this one either, so will call my last try on this thread. Pure and simple, if you were ex-communicated from the RCC do you still believe you would make it to heaven?

Would you willing take ex-communication from the Catholic church because it doesn't have an effect on what you are trusting for salvation? Would you allow yourself to be ex-communicated from the RCC? Yes or no, simple question, just want simple answer. Thanks.

I would suggest that answer is an obvious example of someone wanting an excuse when caught looking at porn.

Not sure what point you are trying to make unless it is encouraging people to look at porn. Stever point was obvious and you are trying to tear it down on a technicality. The pornography that is on the internet is still just that, pornography, whether someone looks at it or not. It doesn't become pornography when it is viewed. That is why the Bible says, "Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away." (Proverbs 4:15)

Matthew 5:8 "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.---NASB
Clarke wrote:
Verse 8. Pure in heart] In opposition to the Pharisees, who affected outward purity, while their hearts were full of corruption and defilement. A principal part of the Jewish religion consisted in outward washings and cleansings: on this ground they expected to see God, to enjoy eternal glory: but Christ here shows that a purification of the heart, from all vile affections and desires, is essentially requisite in order to enter into the kingdom of God. He whose soul is not delivered from all sin, through the blood of the covenant, can have no Scriptural hope of ever being with God. There is a remarkable illustration of this passage, quoted by Mr. Wakefield from Origen, Contra Cels. lib. vi. "God has no body, and therefore is invisible: but men of contemplation can discern him with the heart and understanding. But A DEFILED HEART CANNOT SEE GOD: but HE MUST BE PURE WHO WISHES TO ENJOY A PROPER VIEW OF A PURE BEING."
See Roman Catholic Authority. RCC authority is based on the Pharisee model.

"Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them..." (Exodus 20:3-4)
Sorry JY... It said make unto thee... I am assuming that buying one at the fish and dove store would apply... It is about possession of things God said no about
Like I jokingly said earlier, that is no different than owning porn and saying you aren't looking at it, so it is ok...

John,

I was talking about the catholic crucifix with Christ STILL hanging on the cross. Am I to understand you dont find this blasphemous? Christ was buried and rose three days later forever defeating sin and death. He is no longer still hanging on the cross for the RCC to continually sacrifice.

John y.....you never answer with what scripture says, only what men say or do.
VERY REVEALING, CONCERNING YOUR SPIRITUAL CONDITION. YOUR TRUST IS IN WHAT MEN SAY OR DO.
The Second Commandment states not to bow down to or pray to any image. It is not a violation of the Second Commandment to own a Crucifix or any other image if one doesn't bow down to or pray to the Crucifix or any other image. You asked for reference from the Bible and you got it.
