Bishop is asked to attend discussion panel on LGBT employees

In response to the Columbus Diocese refusal to reinstate Carla Hale as a physical education teacher at Bishop Watterson High School, Amanda Finelli of #halestormOhio and Glen Skeen of Pride @ Work Ohio have invited the bishop to attend a discussion panel on the topic of LGBT employees and faith-based workplaces.

Catholic Bishop of Columbus asked to participate in panel discussion on rights of LGBT people in workplaces

The AFL-CIO in central Ohio has partnered with a grass-roots advocacy group to ask the Roman Catholic bishop of Columbus to participate in a panel discussion on the rights of gay people in workplaces, specifically faith-based workplaces.

“This is a human-rights issue,” Finelli said. “When you see an organization or a corporation, faith-based or otherwise, denying rights — human rights — to an individual and denying them the right to work, denying them the right to live honestly and truthfully, we are seeing somebody being stripped of their human dignity.”
