CAPE CORAL, Fla. - Students from a catholic high school in Cincinnati are rallying for their principal, Michael Moroski, to get his job back.
He was dismissed this week after he wrote about his support for gay rights on his own blog.
"I said I believe gay people should be allowed to be married. What I would like to see from the archdiocese more respect and openness to the wisdom from the people in the pews", said Moroski.
The catholic church opposes same sex marriage and after reading his post the archdiocese made the decision to remove him.
Fox Four viewer, Christine agreed with that decision writing on our Facebook page, "If you can't be on board with the code of ethics of the firm for which you work, you should seek alternative employment."
Steve thought "He no longer can be seen as one that can be trusted to teach those things that the customers of this private school pay for their children to know and understand."
Melissa doesn't think he should be let go and wrote, "He wasn't teaching students about gay marriage, he was posting about it at home."
Scott added, "This is a clear violation of this teacher's first amendment right and he should take these people through the legal system to prove that point."
The principal says the school offered him to stay until June if he agreed to sign papers taking back his earlier statements but he refused.
