An order of nuns was ordered to pay 25,000 Euros to a teacher for discontinuing her employment based on the incompatibility of her sexual orientation with the Catholic school’s ethos.

For the first time in Italy, a judge has fined a Catholic school for discrimination against a female teacher for her public homosexual lifestyle.

 

The Institute “Daughters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus” in the northern Italian town of Trento paid a sum of 25,000 Euros in reparation of property damage to an anonymous teacher. Additionally they were fined 1,500€ to the “Radical Association of Certain Rights” – a gay rights activist group in Italy and another 1,500€ to a local labor union. Source: Life Site News
