If you are not outraged by this travesty... I can't imagine what would do so!

Umm...

The church is anti-gay? Facebook isn't private and can cost you your job? How could either (or both combined) still cause outrage?!

Guess they aren't quite adopting the approach Pope Francis is advocating in his recent interview...

Deft sarcasm... surely? :)

Both are truisms (the first, assuredly); let's hope their ability to outrage and encourage corrective action will continue...

Well...

I think the bar for outrage keeps moving higher, so "gay church employee given the heave-ho" is well under my personal outrage bar. Funny that a heterosexual atheist organist would probably keep their job, since clearly belief played no role in their decision.
