Five nuns walk off teaching jobs after students receive LGBT organization's fliers


Last week, five nuns, teachers at Marin Catholic High School, walked off their jobs for the day after students brought in literature from an LGBT education organization.

April 17 was GLSEN's National Day of Silence, meant to bring attention to bullying of LGBT youth.
