    He was an adjunct professor teaching a Catholicism course.

    Did he tell the people specifically that homosexuality is wrong, or that the catholic church says it is wrong.
    Two different answers, and one of them is worth firing over.

    He argued from "natural moral law" which is the basis of the Church's teaching. So he argued from the same teleological reasoning that the Church uses.

    I have to agree no matter how much I hate the opinion that He shouldn't be fired. Hes teaching a course. And it follows the churches ideologies. Granted its not something I would ever take but in context he shouldn't have been fired.

    No such thing as natural morals, let alone that morality is in any way a "law".
    Any "Natural Law" is unbreakable in any way. Natural Laws are also known as Scientific Laws.

    Those three sentences alone disprove his bullshit.

    Indeed, I would feel like an incredibly gullible idiot if I followed teleological reasoning as the basis of my belief system, but there is no justification for firing someone teaching a course on Catholicism just because he used that incredibly irrational mode of thinking to communicate a political view held by the church. If anything, he should be applauded for doing a public service by demonstrating firsthand how irresponsibly such a means of reasoning can be used.

    Only if people accept the premises of your reasoning.

    My reasoning is undebatable.

    Except for people who believe in unicorns creating the universe by punching their horn through a golf ball. Because someone wrote a book saying so.
