(Houston Chronicle) A Christian academy fired a teacher last fall for getting pregnant out of wedlock, saying she violated the “moral clause” in her contract, according to a report from WFAA in Dallas.

Cathy Samford, 29, coached volleyball and worked as a science teacher at Heritage Christian Academy in Rockwall for three years, the station reported. When the unwed woman got pregnant, the school fired her. Samford is now considering legal action again the school for what she believes is a wrongful termination.

“We all have different views and interpretations,” Samford told WFAA. “It’s not necessarily the Christian thing to do to throw somebody aside because of those.”
