Eastside students speak up for vice principal fired for same-sex marriage | Q13 FOX News

More coverage of the firing of the Vice Principal who married another man. A video has surfaced as well which I have included. This story concerns the directive by the school against further demonstrations and a meeting held with protesting students…

The kids who got a chance to speak one-on-one with Eastside Catholic CEO and President Mary Tracy said the conversation was respectful. They also said Tracy regrets how Zmuda’s termination was handled.

“We appreciate her feelings towards the matter,” said senior Ian Edwards, who attended Monday’s meeting. “It’s comforting to know it wasn’t an easy issue for her, but we’re still pushing for a change in this kind of attitude from the Catholic Church of discrimination in the workplace.”

According to an email sent out to faculty, Eastside Catholic has already hired Zmuda’s replacement — it’s a man who has worked at the school in prior years.

Eastside Catholic students are planning another protest they call “Z” day on Jan. 31. That’s when supporters of Zmuda will all be wearing orange.

They’re hoping that message reaches the Roman Catholic Church and convinces the right people to change the church’s stance on same-sex marriage.
