More Good News From Home

Sexual impropriety is the number 1 reason teachers lose their licenses in Tennessee.

Surely this is a sign that we need to move away from the outmoded, outdated, and unnatural insistence on celibacy in the teaching profession. What? You mean teachers can get married? But only celibate people commit sexual improprieties -- they don't have any reason to if they marry!

Newsflash, folks: clergy in every other denomination (and apparently, Tennessee public school teachers) sexually abuse children at the same or higher rates than Catholic priests. If you want to talk about all sorts of management or vetting problems in seminaries, fine, discuss amongst yourselves. But as far as celibacy goes, file that under "relationship, spurious."
