SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Hundreds of Catholic school teachers and their supporters gathered outside the San Francisco Archdiocese to protest the archbishop’s proposed morality clauses against homosexuality, birth control and premarital sex.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday (https://bit.ly/1OzGtlQ ) that Monday’s demonstration may have been the first gathering with so many employees. There have been protests since Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone proposed this winter that staff at four archdiocese high schools adopt handbook and contract language that affirm marriage as between “one man and one woman.”

The clauses also call sperm donation, the use of a surrogate and other forms of “artificial reproductive technology” as a “grave evil.”

Cordileone has said he is seeking more palatable language, but that he will not change the content of the clauses.
