A woman claims she was fired for having premarital sex by a Christian college in San Diego, California.

Teri James has since filed a lawsuit against San Diego Christian College in El Cajon claiming wrongful termination.

She admits that she became pregnant through having premarital sex, and has claimed that this was the reason the Christian college dismissed her. James has now hired high profile attorney, Gloria Allred, to argue her case against SDCC, according to KGTV.

In November 2012, Allred became the attorney for Natalie Khawan, twin sister to Jill Kelley in the General David Petraeus scandal, during her custody dispute for her son.

James has claimed that she was told by the human resources director at the college that she was not being fired for being pregnant, but instead for engaging in premarital sex. She claims she was given two options; quit or be fired.

Allred has made clear these allegations, telling media sources: "The HR director indicated that she was not being fired because she was pregnant. Instead, she was being terminated because she had premarital sex."

James was reportedly fired from the Christian college four months ago, where she had been employed as a financial aid specialist.

She claims that her employers were satisfied with her work until they learned of her pregnancy out of wedlock.

Actually it doesn't. If she signed a contract containing a moral clause, then there are within their right... heck, even without, it is a religious place that likes to keep up the morals that it stands for, then it is reasonalbe to end her employment if she tarnishes it.

Kind of like a bank firing an employee that files for bankruptsy, or stops paying their mortgage and tanks their credit, etc.

A job isn't a right, and if you don't abide by the 'rules' and company image, then you are out.

Except ignoring all the good things that Christians (Again, not speaking for all religions, this topic is specific) HAVE done in the world with regards to charity organizations if you've spent about 5 minutes researching. Jesus sets a perfect precedence for such. Of course, there are people who are corrupt in some organizations and have abused their privileges, but this is no different than any other charities -- on a general scale on a grand scheme of things your assertion is basically incorrect.

I am not about to enter into Neowin's infamous anti-religious trolling debate so this will be my last post in this tread about this. Moving on...

California is an at-will work state meaning you can be fired for any reason or no reason. Basically If an employer fires you because of your race, sexual orientation, sex, etc, it is a wrongful termination. If they just don't like you (or you get pregnant out of wedlock and they don't like it) you are out of luck.

Huh ???

Is this legal in USA ??? Please don't tell me it is.

Here such a clause is void even if you sign a contract with it. The CNT laws override such clause.

Nah under Taliban rule, she'd just get 80 lashings if the guy she had sex with was unmarried too. If not, well then she would have been stoned to death.

[i][size=3]Edit: Same for the guy.[/size][/i]

[i][size=3]Edit 2: If she was pregnant, they'd wait until she'd given birth to the kid and the kid had grown out of breastfeeding age and then the punishment would be administered.[/size][/i]

Perfectly legal. Morals clauses are typically seen in the contracts of public figures, such as athletes, actors/actresses, and others.

A caring religion would help her raise the child and make accommodations for her situation, not deprive her of her only source of income and publicly humiliate her. It's sad that religion is applied in a fundamentally intolerant way. Can you imagine Christ's second coming in today's society? Christians would brand the unmarried pregnant mother-to-be a whore and kick her out on the street to sell her body to make ends meet, where she'd get addicted to drugs and give birth to the meth addicted, HIV-infected Son of God.

This, end of thread basically.. as long as she wasn't terminated because of a protected class as said above.

wow....um....is there something you need to talk about, like get off your chest or something? it is a Christian college, not a church. i'm sure the church would help her out is she needs help.

That is BS. Helping her with charity is 100% different than allowing sin and depravity under their roof by employees (which was the realtionship she had with the school).

Nice try though. People always assume that Christians have to bend over backwards and reward sin and evil... the Bible says no such thing. Love the sinner, hate the sin. Don't cast stones and think yourself sinless, but under no circomstances do you allow the sin to taint you.

When a woman is expecting child that's when she most needs support and financial security, yet some Christians think the appropriate behaviour is to terminate her employment and publicly humiliate her. It's disgusting. If there's [i]any[/i] depravity taking place it's on the part of Christians.

Well for the fairness,

She CHOSE to work there and She KNEW Christianity oppose premarital sex.

Let's say it's some rule of your work place. If you don't follow the rules you get fired, right?

So we can give the religion bash some rest.

Some women in Indonesia killed her male son today because she thought his weenie was too small. So do not blame Christianity , worse things happen in other religions in other counties.
