CWN Editor's Note: The head of a Catholic high school in Seattle has taken a leave of absence, a week after two teachers at the school resigned after acknowledging that they planned marriage with same-sex partners. The resignations prompted angry protests. Seattle’s Archbishop Paul Etienne asked Mike Prato, the president of John F. Kennedy Catholic High School, to take a leave of absence “out of care and concern” for both Prato and the school, the archdiocese said.
