  •  She should sue the school for wrongful (0+ / 0-)

    termination. She should argue that she was fired as a result of her personal religious beliefs, and her freedom of religion was injured as a result.
    Keep in mind that she stated her personal beliefs are different from the school's, but she doesn't let her personal beliefs affect her teaching in the classroom:

    I do not agree w/ all Church teachings on a personal level but I do not bring my own opinions into our religion classes. We tend to focus on respect and love for one another and living out our call as servants whenever a ‘political’ topic crops (which it rarely, if ever, does).

    She was fired for not agreeing with a policy, not for teaching the opposite of the policy. This seems to me to be an extraordinary overreach on the school's part.
