Labor questions, hell, classifying a teacher as a minister offends me as a Catholic way before it does as a huge commie*. NEWS FLASH why would you call a non-ordained person a minister if not as a particularly-sleazy way to cheat them out of their benefits??? FYI Jesus is, historically, not terribly cool with cheating your workers. Just, you know, on principle. Little lesson for these supposed men of God.
"Steve Pehanich, senior director for advocacy and education at the California Catholic Conference, likewise said that he considers all teachers as ministers. 'Some might say the most important aspect of a Catholic school is to pass on the faith,' he said."
WHAT. No it isn't, because then that's not a school, that is church or a church activity or whatever you want to call it. Steve Pehanich should not be the anything of education for anyone.
*this also super-offends me as a huge commie though, rest assured.
