CINCINNATI---A US teacher fired
from Catholic schools after becom-
ing pregnant through artificial
insemination told jurors yesterday
she didn t know that the procedure
violated church doctrine.
Christa Dias sued the Roman
Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati
and the schools over her 2010 dis-
missal, contending they fired her
because she was pregnant and
unmarried. Her attorney, Robert
Klingler, told a federal jury that the
firing violated federal law prohibiting
The archdiocese s attorney, Steve
Goodin, previously denied any dis-
crimination and told jurors Dias was
fired for violating a contract that
required her to abide by Catholic
The archdiocese has said artificial
insemination violates that doctrine
and is immoral.
Dias said she is a Christian but
not Catholic and was told that didn t
matter when she was hired to teach
computer classes. She said she
thought the contract clause requiring
compliance with church philosophies
meant she should try "to be a Chris-
tian woman and follow the Bible."
Her lawsuit alleges church policy
is not enforced equally against men
and women. A man formerly
employed in youth ministry within
the archdiocese testified in a sworn
video deposition Tuesday, saying
some church officials were aware
that he and his wife used artificial
insemination and that he was not
fired or disciplined.
The archdiocese has argued Dias
was a ministerial employee and the
Supreme Court has said religious
groups can dismiss those employees,
but Klingler says Dias had no min-
Dias attorney also has stressed
Tuesday that Dias, who is gay, had
always known she wanted to have a
child and opened the trial by show-
ing jurors a photo of her now two-
While Dias lawsuit does not claim
that she was fired over her sexual
orientation, Goodin noted that "the
evidence will show that Dias never
really intended to abide by the con-
tract." He said she kept the fact that
she was gay a secret because she
knew the church doesn t approve of
"That all goes to her credibility,"
Dias is seeking unspecified dam-
ages to cover lost wages and "for
the pain and emotional stress"
caused by the firing, Klingler said.

ST GEORGE'S---The president of Grenada s Senate
says the Caribbean island should reconsider its laws
prohibiting sex between men.
Senator Lawrence Joseph says "the day is fast
approaching" when Grenada and other socially con-
servative countries in the English-speaking Caribbean
will need to amend anti-sodomy laws to "fall in line
with the mainstream."
In a commentary piece for local newspapers, Joseph
writes that acceptance of gays is becoming a mod-
ern-day trend. He says bigger, wealthier nations could
impose sanctions and withhold aid as a consequence
of maintaining local anti-sodomy laws.
He also says it is reasonable to question why sex
between two men should be outlawed. (AP)

Facebook has lost more than a dozen advertisers
after a campaign drew attention to pages on the
social media site that promoted violence against
Women, Action, and the Media launched the cam-
paign last week to get Facebook to end hate speech
on its site and urged advertisers to pull their support.
The content included pages and images that had
grisly photos of abuse, and mottos that encouraged
rape, abuse and other violence against women.
The campaign elicited more than 5,000 e-mails to
Facebook advertisers and more than 60,000 posts on
Twitter. Nissan and a number of other smaller adver-
tisers responded by pulling ads.
Facebook said Tuesday that its systems failed to
work effectively to identify and remove the hate speech
and will remove the content and improve its efforts.

content against women
