Students, alumni rally around fired gay teacher at Catholic school

 | 

Gay and lesbian Catholic students in Pennsylvania are joining alumni and others in pushing a Catholic high school near Philadelphia to reinstate a teacher who was fired after he applied for a marriage license with his partner.

The effort is one of several in support of Michael Griffin, who was dismissed by Holy Ghost Preparatory School, and they include a petition at Change.org that had drawn more than 7,500 signatures as of Monday.
