German court rules Catholic institutions can enforce Church marriage laws
Catholic World News - September 09, 2011
A German court has ruled that Catholic institutions can dismiss employees who violate Church teachings regarding marriage--as long as all employees are treated equally.
The court ruling came in a case involving a Catholic doctor working at a Catholic hospital in Dusseldorf, who was fired after he divorced and remarried. The court ruled that the hospital would have been within its rights to fire the doctor, except that the institution had not taken the same action against other divorced and remarried doctors who were Protestants.
