SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Hundreds of students, teachers and supporters marched in San Francisco and delivered petitions opposing the archbishop’s so-called morality clauses at four Catholic high schools.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1Dlpi0g ) Tuesday that the march Monday evening is the latest opposition to San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone’s call for teachers and staff members at high schools within the archdiocese to accept contract and handbook language against homosexuality, same-sex marriage, abortion, contraceptives and artificial insemination.

Earlier this month, more than 80 percent of teachers and staff members at the schools issued a statement rejecting the archbishop’s proposed language for the handbook, the newspaper reported.

State lawmakers have criticized Cordileone’s proposed statement and asked for a probe of working conditions at the archdiocese’s four high schools. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors also opposed the added language.
