    in this case her male partner, who presumably had something to do with the conception (I assume it was not immaculate), was hired.  At the very least a double standard!  I believe this gives her a case.

      If you read that Supreme Court case, a religious institution has to designate a job as having religious responsibilities if they are going to come within the "ministerial exception" to things like job discrimination laws.  Apparently, given the fact that she signed the moral pledge, her job was for some reason given such a designation.  If the job offered to him (and the diary does not indicate what kind of job was offered to him) did not have such a designation, then his own personal moral life was irrelevant.  

      Or perhaps the reason he turned down the job was because it came with the obligation to sign a morals pledge that he didn't want to accept? The diary doesn't say.
