MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) -- A Catholic school in Moorhead, Minn., has terminated a fifth grade teacher who told administrators she disagreed with the church's stance on gay marriage.
The Forum newspaper reports that teacher Trish Cameron was notified June 1 that she wouldn't be offered a new contract at St. Joseph's Catholic School. That's after she filled out a self-evaluation form where she admitted to personally disagreeing with the church's stance on some issues, but said she never brought her own opinions into the classroom.
Cameron says in a follow-up conversation with administrators, she voiced disagreement with the church's opposition to gay marriage. She says she was then asked to resign.
A letter to the school's families says Cameron was asked to resign because of an "unfortunate circumstance."
