Miami Catholic school teacher says she was fired for being gay

A gay schoolteacher has been fired by a Miami Catholic school after marrying her same-sex partner in an apparent violation of church rules, church officials said.

Archdiocese of Miami officials confirmed to the Miami Herald that first-grade teacher Jocelyn Morffi lost her job at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School on Thursday, the day after she returned from her Florida Keys wedding. "This weekend I married the love of my life and unfortunately I was terminated from my job as a result," Morffi said in a post on social media.
