Choir director knew he was violating policy

Sorry, I don't have much sympathy for Colin Collette, the worship leader who lost his job for "love."

I am not Catholic, nor do I attend Holy Family, but Mr. Collette knew "company policy" and violated it. You quote his defense as being "I believe God has given me this ... and saying no to this relationship would be saying no to God."

Well, God made us with a lot of desires. Does that mean fulfilling them all is doing God's will? Heaven forbid!

Actions have consequences, and he made his choice.

He then compounds his violation by running to the media with his story rather than showing love to people who disagree with his feelings and leaving quietly. And shame on the Daily Herald for putting this story above the fold on the front page.

People get fired all the time for insubordination. What makes this so different? An agenda perhaps?
