Jim Kenney, Democratic mayoral candidate in Philadelphia, sided with Margie Winters, a lesbian who worked as a religious education and outreach director at Waldron Mercy Academy, a Catholic private elementary school in Merion Station, before to be fired because she married a woman.

«Discrimination and hate have no place in the Church's teachings and certainly not in its schools,» Kenney said in a statement. «I urge the school administrators to reinstate Margie Winters.»

The good news is that many parents also rallied to Margie and hope that she will be reinstated in her post. She probably won't be because the school is private and religious so it can fire anyone for any reason.
