Just this week we found out that one of my colleague is pregnant. What did the people, religious people, around her did? Talk behind her back, criticize her, make her feel more miserable. They avoided her like she had lupus. When I was accompanying my colleague at lunch, I swear I could feel the cold stares of disgust from our other colleagues. I thought the faithful were understanding and were concerned of the well-being of other people, but they weren't.
I know it was against the principle of the faithful to get pregnant out of wedlock because it was immoral or something. And it was a disgrace to our dear catholic school to have a woman pregnant our of marriage. But to fire her for what had happen is a bit cruel in my view. She needs all the support she could get. She especially need the money for caring for her child.
I talked to my colleague and asked what our directress (a nun) told her when she admit that she's pregnant. and you know what "sister" did? nothing! she didn't even talked to my colleague. "Sister" just relayed her message to my colleague through our Academic Leader that the school is firing her. Very professional right?
I shouldn't be the one getting all annoyed and depressed but what our school did was really brutal.
