Italian Catholic school fires “gay” teacher

The female teacher of a State-sanctioned Catholic school in Trento was refused a renewal of her contract after being summoned by the Principal, Mother Eugenia Libratore, and interrogated about her sexual orientation. The school apparently suspected the teacher of being a lesbian.

The Ministry of Education and the Autonomous Province of Trento, which has extensive powers, announced that they will investigate the case and, if evidence of sexual discrimination is found, take appropriate measures.
