Catholic School Official Fired for Declaring Support Gay Marriage

CINCINNATI - A Catholic school assistant principal was fired Monday over comments he made on his blog in support of gay marriage.

The Archdiocese of Cincinnati fired Mike Moroski from Purcell Marian High School, telling him in a termination letter that he had shown "poor judgment" and violated the teachings of the Catholic church, archdiocese spokesman Dan Andriacco said.

Moroski had anticipated the move after refusing to take down the blog post and hiring an attorney.

Moroski did not immediately respond to a request for comment Monday, but he told The Cincinnati Enquirer last week that he was following his conscience when he wrote about his support of gay marriage.
