For 17 years, Ken Bencomo taught English at a Catholic school in California. He also taught dance and worked with students on their yearbook. And Ken’s partner was part of his school community. Ken’s students knew he was gay. Ken’s administration knew he was gay. But last week – the very same week that the pope asked “who am I to judge?” in response to a question about gay Catholic leadership – Ken was fired for legally marrying his partner of 10 years.

Pope Francis recently publicly announced his non-judgement of gay individuals.
