A group of about 20 parents showed up at the school Friday demanding an explanation.

A teacher at a Catholic school in Miami has been fired after marrying her female partner.

One parent told the paper: "We were extremely livid". However, some parents are fuming with the school's decision and organised a protest demanding to know why Morffi was sacked, but say they still haven't been given a satisfactory reason.

The school notified parents in a letter, and many of them were outraged.

Sts. Peter and Paul did not respond to a request for comment. Cini and other parents said they didn't know or care about Morffi's sexual orientation. Agosta asserted that policy prohibits the discussion of personnel matters.

"As a teacher in a Catholic school their responsibility is partly for the spiritual growth of the children", Agosta told the Herald. "One has to understand that in any corporation, institution or organization there are policies and procedures and teachings and traditions that are adhered to".

In April 2014, after a judge in Florida lifted the state's ban on same-sex marriage, Archbishop Thomas Wenski, who oversees Miami's Catholic archdiocese, sent a message to all employees, according to the Religion News Service.

Per the Archdiocese of Miami's policy, Catholic school teachers are considered church representatives and are expected to abide by Catholic teachings. Any conduct "inconsistent" with that could result in disciplinary action, including termination. The Miami-Dade County antidiscrimination law, which covers anti-LGBT discrimination, has an exemption for religious institutions. But it's even more important to pass comprehensive statewide protections'.

Yet catholic school fires her exclusively bc she got a woman.

She was allegedly called into the principal's office and told that she had to resign, that afternoon. When Morffi refused to do the same, she was sacked.
