Church pantry worker fired for being a lesbian sues Catholic diocese

Colleen Simon alleges in her lawsuit that she had told two priests at St. Francis Xavier Church that she was married to another woman and they had informed her that her sexual orientation would not be a problem. However, an April article mentioned her marriage to the Rev. Donna Simon of St. Mark Hope and Peace Lutheran Church. Within a month, Colleen Simon had been fired at Bishop Robert Finn’s direction, she alleges.
