One of my friends who was a part-time music teacher accidentally came out to me (I caught him in a lie and very gently asked him about it), and he was terrified that I would turn him in because he needed the extra cash that job represented. Of course I didn't, because I think it is an immoral, shitty clause, and my conscience wouldn't let me do it, even if I were so inclined.
@3: Generally not, however non-Catholic teachers are required to live their lives according to Catholic moral teaching.
Of course, I'm saying this as someone with friends that teach Catholic schools here in backwards San Francisco, where Catholic's probably make up a minority of their faculty. The Catholic school I attended for a few years in beautiful Bothell, Washington, had a totally less... errr... flexible vibe.
As long as the Priests are never confronted with it, its all good. The second someone says "ya know Father* employee X is Gay"... employee X is fired. The Nuns were cool with it though.
*I'm talking about the institutional Priests here. I know some parish Priests who are totally cool with it.
Alas I also saw some institutional Priests from the same diocese trolling for rentboys. Today I imagine the Bishop who reached down and fired the teacher trolls for his rentboys online.
