Bill Diss before his dismissal from Benson High School.
To the Catholic Sentinel:
It is encouraging to note in the Sentinel two legal organizations; Legal Defense Foundation of California, and the Oregon Right to Life, have pledged their support for Bill Diss and his spurious dismissal from his teaching position at Benson High School by the Portland School Board. I’m praying these organizations are successful in their defense of Mr. Diss.
However, one must realize that abortion is the Holy Grail of progressive, leftist Democratic Party policies. Progressives and the Democratic Party will defend at all costs unfettered access to abortion services. Fortunately, pro-life advocates and organizations have been politically successful in denying late term abortion services to this political constituency.
With regard to Mr. Diss, it is however not surprising that he was dismissed, given the wrath the Portland Public School District Board would encounter from the Portland Teacher’s Association, other public employee labor unions and the City Council members from Portland.
One hopes Mr. Diss will find employment opportunities within local primary and secondary Catholic Schools in Portland.
