No sex, No gays: Catholic teachers challenge morality clause

(CNN) - If you want to teach at a Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, regardless of your religion, you must be willing to sign a detailed morality clause that critics say focuses on "pelvic issues."

The revised contracts forbid teachers from - among other things - living together or having sex outside of marriage, using in-vitro fertilization, a gay "lifestyle," or publicly supporting any of those things.

The system's 2,200 current teachers must sign the agreement to stay on the job.

"It is an embarrassment and a scandal, and will drive even more Catholics away from an institution so out of touch with its times," said Robert Hague, a high school English teacher for 50 years.

He's leaving his job rather than sign because he's opposed to "the language, the intent, and the tone of this contract," he says.

The revised morality clause goes beyond more general standard language requiring teachers - Catholic or not - to adhere to Catholic doctrine.
