    My apologies for how the headline is worded. The Star obviously has an agenda in reporting it this way. I use the actual headlines on the stories I post, so that's why it says what it says.
    Bluntly stated, Colleen is a liar.

    There is no way anyone in the Catholic Church could have known she was an active-lifestyle lesbian and hired her to work for the church. Even more so than in some parts of the country, Catholics in the Kansas City area are very conservative and would not tolerate a "gay marriage" by one of its employees. I've got Catholic friends that this morning are outraged this woman would claim anyone in the church would have "known" she was a lesbian and still hired her. They say it just wouldn't happen.

    This is undoubtedly timed as an attempt to recoup the loss before the Supreme Court to Hobby Lobby last week regarding the rights of private employers to refuse to cover morning-after contraceptives where doing so goes against their religious beliefs.
