The two gay teachers ordered fired from their separate Catholic schools by the Indianapolis Archdiocese are married, their lawyer said today. One of the teachers filed a lawsuit.
Former Cathedral High School teacher Joshua Payne-Elliott also filed a discrimination complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against the Archdiocese. Payne-Elliott claims the Archdiocese discriminated on the basis of sexual orientation and retaliated against him for opposing sexual orientation discrimination, according to a press release by his attorney.
