A long-time teacher at a Catholic high school in Glendora, California is out of a job. Supporters say Ken Bencomo was fired after he married his same-sex partner. Students and alumni from Saint Lucy’s are now protesting the teacher’s termination.
The school has issued a statement saying, “Saint Lucy’s is a community for those who wish to express Christian values.”
More than four thousand people have signed a petition to get Bencomo his job back.
