This dissertation argues that the dismissal of lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) educators from Catholic schools constitutes discrimination that is theologically and morally unjust. Theologically, it argues that walking a synodal path should inspire Catholic leaders to dialogue with (not exclude) dissenting Catholics. Morally, it contends that a civil right to religious freedom should never be used to violate the inalienable human rights of LGB people.
